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.

I've had for me, good luck with decent papers 90g and better and Herbin.

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.)

      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
