Lovely review. Thank you. You show off the color very well. Every time I use it I am re-shocked at how legible it is. I always worry that it will be too light but it's not.

Yet another Sarah.

Interesting color! I am a bit leery of yellowish inks, but this one seems a little bit less bright, which is good.




Using right now:

Marlen M10 Lux "M" nib running Diamine Firefly

Cross 175th Anniversary"F" nib running Narwhal Carmel Sea Blue

Diplomat Excellence A2 "EF" nib running Jacques Herbin Caroube de Chipre

Thank you!

It shows shading and in writing I would call it light brown, instead of yellow.

Of course a nib which is wet makes the appearance darker.

I admit, the color was a nice surprise for me too :-)

The chromo shows a nice warm and soft orange at the start and then just yellow and brown.

More inks of J. Herbin are on the way...



So many inks, so little time....
