Customer Reviews

Spiral Glass
This is a beautiful glass dip pen. Although it does not have variation of writing because it is not flexible, it writes beautifully.

1670 Sample(4ml)
In a Diplomat Magnum F, this ink, while well-behaved, looked too much like pencil yet in a Pilot Kakuno it has much more presence. I don't think I would buy the color again but that's why Pen Chalet made samples!

Great quality ink cartridges (smooth starting and writing)in a tin that can double as a needle or pill case when empty! Pen Chalet delivered these super fast.

Great inexpensive ink for use in my every day pen. I keep a preppy platinum inked up and ready for use. I love the grey subtleties of this blue

Lovely shading in the Stormy Grey. The ink dries quickly and is well-behaved. Color seems similar to the color of pencil marks.

A beautiful aqua-esque ink here with the Diabolo Menthe. It does write a little on the lighter side, meaning it’s not a dark ink.

This ink flows very well. I like the smaller 10 ml bottle. It gives me a chance to see if I like the ink without the expense of a larger bottle.

Bottled Ink(10ml)
I really like this ink. Originally bought a small bottle but will almost certainly get a bottle in larger size. Writing in a Leuchtturm 1917 journal, it lays down a violet color (clearly has red in the mix) but dries a bit more on the blue side, but still a lovely, lovely purple. Not too wet in a Pilot Custom 74 fine. This will be a go-to color for me in the future.

Cartridge(6pk)
I was so happy to find Pen Chalet. I had successfully used J. Herbin cartridges with my fountain pen a few years ago. When I ran out of the cartridges, I turned to a brand that should have worked with my fountain pen since both the pen and ink cartridges were purchased from the same company. They did not work, however; the cartridges would not stay in place. The company would not recommend any ink cartridges other than their own brand. Fortunately I kept the tin in which the J. Herbin cartridges came in and did a search for them. Pen Chalet was the top of my Google list and I was so happy to see how inexpensive the cartridges were as well as the wide variety of beautiful colors. The cartridges work perfectly with my pen and I expect to spend many happy hours writing with it. I also appreciate the prompt delivery and appropriate packaging of my purchase.

Very happy with this pen. J herbin is high quality manufacturer overall. I would recommend this dip pen to anyone looking to write frequently with one. I would categorize the nib size as medium to Broad.

Smooth Frosted Glass
I have never written with a glass dip pen, so this became a relatively inexpensive experiment. It has a bit more tooth than I prefer, but I look forward to taking the time to use this extensively in the future!

Bottled Ink(30ml)
I am a fan of Herbin inks. They are vibrant and write well no matter which pen I use. This Vert Pre-color is beautiful, although a bit light for my everyday use.

It looks like a highlighter. Very light, bright green with a strong yellow tint. Almost disappears on a yellow legal tablet. Best on a bright white paper. I will probably mix in a drop or two of Herbin Lierre Sauvage just to darken it a bit. Hats off to Pen Chalet for quality products, good service, good shipping threshold, and a great breadth of product selection.

Rouge Grenat is a beautiful red color, but dries a bit darker on high quality paper. Vert De Gris is a pretty, muted green, almost teal color. All of the Herbin inks are well-behaved in all of my pens.
