Oh thank you for this review. I like that color. It looks like it might be a good match for my new pen.
I have had some disappointments with Herbin Ink because the colour I got was not as saturated as I was led to believe. Vert Olive looks like Army Green with yellow added. The Tomoe River paper makes the colour look better than my experience of it was. Because it was before I got any Tomoe River paper.
Herbin is not a saturated ink....or not the 5 or 6 I have, they are however good two toned shading inks....which was why I chased them.
This though is not my color.

In my cart in Amazon.....
I've had for me, good luck with decent papers 90g and better and Herbin.
German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

The cheapest lessons are from those who learned expensive lessons. Ignorance is best for learning expensive lessons.
If you have any interest in red ink, try the new Herbin Rouge Grenat; I didn't believe the color I saw from the first samples shown & had to have my own bottle to actually believe I had @ last met a Herbin ink I could call saturated. (The Bleu Profondeur is another of the newest Herbins & is also a highly saturated ink.)
