The J. Herbin 30ml Fountain Pen Bottled Ink . Each bottle of 30 ml has an integrated pen rest. They are known as “D bottle pen inks. The “D” refers to the old French unit of measure “la Demi Courtine”.J. Herbin was established in 1670 and is the oldest name in formal ink production in the world. It is the ink namesake used by renowned figures such as Napoleon Bonaparte and Victor Hugo of Les Miserables. M. Herbin created this line, “The Jewel of Inks”, in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.

This ink haunted me. I found an old cartridge that I’d purchased years ago. It was the last survivor of a group of six I’d picked up for a song. After using it in a pen that I was waiting to convert I fell in love with the rich tea coloring of the ink. A couple months passed after using up my one cartridge I found myself thinking about it every time I contemplated what ink to use next. So, finally I dropped by the Pen Boutique and picked up a 30ml bottle. I have not been disappointed. I’ve been using it in my Pelikan m805 with a fine nib, and it flows smoothly and dries fast enough for an office note taker like myself. Great buy. I highly suggest this ink for those who love the deep browns of tea.
Recently acquired a bottle of this beautiful ink. It is one of my favorites, because of the color, flow, shading and not bleeding ink. Very nice color. Highly recomended.
