Hi all,

 

Four-year pause, I am back to the forum at last.

 

And i'd like to introduce you my first ever ink review. Actually it's not a review, it's just a scribble. I am a true amateur and sorry for my terrible handwriting. Next time i'll try macro shoot. By the way if the topic is inappropriate, moderators can move it or delete...

 

J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir is my second ink after Waterman Absolute Brown.

and the pen is also my favourite type, Scrikss 17 with a Fine nib.

 

Hope you like it...

Thanks for the review / scribble.😉 This is one of my favorite inks, especially with a nice wet, broad nib.

Yea. I'm glad you brought it to our attention. Now I have ink up a pen with some...lol.

Beautiful color, thank you for the review!

Is it fair for an intelligent and family oriented mammal to be separated from his/her family and spend his/her life starved in a concrete jail?

I hesitated to get this ink at first, because of the lack of water resistance. But I finally broke down and got it a couple of years ago and just love it. I ran it for several months in a Parker 61 with the capillary filler, because it had zero clogging issues (now I'm thinking I really should bite the bullet and get one of the 100 ml bottles... because the small bottle isn't going to last forever...).

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

Thanks for your opinions. Me also thinking about J. Herbin "Rose Cyclamen" as my next ink model in my collection. That brand is really addictive due to its wide model range. Really difficult to choose among them.

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
