The Amazing J.Herbin 1670 Inks
The ink of Louis XIV, Napoleon and Victor Hugo, used to sign treaties at Versailles and write Les Miserables, quite literally the ink of Kings. This is the special 340th anniversary ink produced by J. Herbin in a beautiful glass bottle with celebratory wax seal and presentation box. The ink comes as either a dark red, based on the colour of the Herbin logo, Blue Ocean ( a rich, dark blue) , Stormy Grey (dark, almost black), Emerald of Chivor (a beautiful shade of green) and the latest for 2016, Caroube de Chypre ( a warm brown) - all with gold flecks in the ink. As will all particulate inks, the best results will be achieved with wetter pens and broader nibs. Pens with fine or extra fine nibs may need washing through if they get clogged and some pens may not be best suited such as vintage pens.
J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. M. Herbin created “The Jewel of Inks” in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700. Herbin inks use only natural dyes which means they have a neutral pH.
