These 10-milliliter bottles come in handy for testing new colors and traveling with your favorite inks in tow. The all-natural, water-based formula runs smoothly and dries quickly—plus, it’s nontoxic, pH-neutral, and lightfast. Of particular note are the five new colors: the first shades to be added to J. Herbin’s standard line of fountain pen inks in years. Vert de Gris is inspired by the lovely gray-green patina that appears on aging copper, while Corail des Tropiques evokes warm breezy days on the shore. Bleu de Profondeurs is an intense dark blue reminiscent of deep ocean water, while Bleu Calanque is a fresh blue like that of a cool stream. Finally, a rich and intense red, Rouge Grenat, may call to mind an antique garnet stone.
Note: This drop includes five bottles of ink. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of 35 different colors.
J. Herbin was established in 1670 by an enterprising sailor carrying sealing-wax formulas from his travels in India. After designing specialty ink formulations for such French luminaries as Louis XIV and Victor Hugo, the company became synonymous with high-quality writing supplies.
