About the J Herbin 1670(50ml)

The J Herbin 1670 fountain pen ink celebrates the life of founder J. Herbin, a French sailor who created inks in Paris in 1700. J Herbin sailed to India collecting ingredients for his inks and wax seals. The J Herbin 1670 fountain pen ink celebrates the 340th anniversary of the companies founding.

The bottom has a sealing wax on the bottle, reminiscent of the J Herbin wax used for the "grand cru" wines of France. The box displays the life of J. Herbin with a ship, an anchor and a palm tree representing navigation and discovery.

Choose from Rouge Hematite in a deep red, Ocean Blue representing the color of the ocean, and Stormy Grey deep coal grey with flecks of gold representing the deep dark ocean.

The ocean blue is a little dark for my taste, but the red is gorgeous.

How do you review an ink made by a company that's been making ink for nearly 350 years? The anniversary inks are a little pricey but they have these magical properties. Really, they do! If you've read any of the reviews out there, you should know about these. Trust me, those magical properties will only be revealed when writing on a fine quality, fountain pen friendly, paper. I recommend Tomoe River paper from Japan. All of them have very fine "gold" dust in them. (What's a magical property without gold dust?) They are beautifully bottled with coordinating wax seals and wax dipped, screw on, lids. I also recommend that you get one of J Herbin's glass dip pens for use with these inks. (They even kinda resemble a small glass magic wand!) These are not your everyday inks for use in your daily user pen, so get a great dip pen and have some fun making the magic that these inks will make in writing a special note to someone special. I also hope that Pen Chalet will be around for another 350 years or so.

If you love shimmer, you'll love this ink. It's a dark, true blue with gold shimmer swimming throughout. You definitely need to shake the bottle right before filling in order to get that shimmer in your pen. To really see the shimmer, I'd recommend at least an M nib. If you don't shake it up, you've just got a nice blue for any need, including professional. It's kind of like a two-for-one; shimmer when you want it, plain when you don't. The bottle is aesthetically pleasing and sits firmly while filling (no odd shape with an awkward center of gravity). I like the look of it just sitting on my desk. I really love this ink!

One of my all-time favorite inks. Fantastic dark teal color, dramatic red sheen, incredibly smooth to write with, dries fairly quickly. I like the gold shimmer very much, but it would be a spectacular even without it.

When discussing J. Herbin inks it's necessary to consider the history of excellence and the variety of ink colors they offer. This special anniversary edition is in limited colors, but with an exquisite bottle that is immediately collectable. I've given a 4 for functionality since this ink should not be left in a fountain pen long term. If you're a collector and or using an expensive pen, don't learn the "Penman" lesson.

Emerald of Chivor is my first foray into the J. Herbin 1670 line, and I love it. The gold particles are, in a weird way, dramatic yet refined. Eye-catching without making you feel like you're writing a letter with a glitter pen. But leaving that entirely aside, it's a wonderful ink. The color, saturation, lubrication, shading, red sheen -- all exceptional. The dry time, feathering, and bleedthrough are also all much better than I was expecting from an ink with such high saturation and sheen. Far and away one of my favorite inks.

This ink is just glorious. Even on papers that don't show much sheen, it's a lovely color. Minimal feathering, works great in almost any pen. Very excited to have this!!
