Established in 1670, J. Herbin is the oldest name in ink production—and it has even designed specialty ink formulations for French luminaries like Louis XIV and Victor Hugo. So it makes sense that the company would eventually make a fountain pen that shows off its famous inks in all their glory. Made of clear plastic, this offers a nicely priced introduction to the world of demonstrator pens. The transparent barrel and cap give you an unobstructed view of the inner workings, and are minimally accented with a metal pocket clip and end cap. Fitted with a medium stainless steel nib, this pen can be used with standard international short cartridges or with bottled ink and the included converter.
Note: This drop includes two pens and one 10ml bottle of ink in your choice of color: Ambre de Birmanie, Bleu Azur, Bleu Myosotis, Bleu Nuit, Bleu Pervenche, Bouquet d’Antan, Bouton d’Or, Cacao du Brésil, Café des Íles, Diabolo Menthe, Gris Nuage, Eclat de Saphir, Larme de Cassis, Lie de Thé, Lierre Sauvage, Orange Indien, Perle Noire, Pouissière de Lune, Rose Cyclamen, Rose Tendresse, Rouge Bourgogne, Rouge Caroubier, Rouille d’Ancre, Terre de Feu, Vert Empire, Vert Olive, Vert Pré, Vert Réséda, or Violette Pensée. Limited quantities are available.
From J. Herbin, 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 non-toxic, pH-neutral, and lightfast.
