Inks From Jacques Herbin - 1798
Jacques Herbin is on of the oldest names in the ink world, around since 1670. In 1798 they first introduced their own range of inks. In recent years Jacques Herbin have launched a new ink, with much fanfare and publicity. Each ink is a different colour featuring metallic flecks which give the ink a unique shimmer.
The new 1798 ink range celebrates their first ever ink with a brand new colour - purple. Amethyst to be precise, inspired by the jewels from the Ural mountains at the edge of Europe and Asia.
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.

Total 1 question(s)
Can you tell me why this Herbin anniversary ink is £6/40% more expensive that the other anniversary inks folks? I'll be buying it regardless, just interested in the price hike?
We have asked the question of Herbin and this is their answer:
"The price is higher than the 1670 ink.
This is explained by :
- We had to developed a mould for the bottle which has the bottom engraved
- This bottle is much more expensive as it is more practical and qualitative
- The cost of 2 labels and 1 notice
- The lace is also more expensive "
It will also be connected to some degree with the current exchange rate which is making all products imported more expensive. Hope this helps.
