  • Description
  • Reviews

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 uses all natural dyes in their fountain pen inks. This natural composition is reflected in the very neutral pH of the inks.

  • 30 mL ink bottles
  • Available in J. Herbin's most popular colors: Perle Noire, Vert Olive, and Poussiere de Lune
  • You can find a wider selection of ink colors in our 10mL bottles and cartridge tins!

You can't go wrong with Herbin. The Vert Olive ink is a golden green color. Saturation is mid-to-light like most of Herbin's inks. So, probably not one that would be great from a fine nib but in a broad, stub, dip pen, or brush this ink is great. Tokyo Pen wrapped this bottle well, as they do with everything.
