Inky Gifts for your Fountain Pen Friends

Stephanie

Another great gift idea for your favorite fountain pen user would be a new bottle (or three) of J. Herbin fountain pen ink. J. Herbin inks are non toxic,  pH neutral, lightfast, water based, and are available in 30 colors. The inks are made from all natural dyes and are smooth flowing and fast drying. Each 30 ml bottle is elegantly labeled and has an integrated pen rest. They are known as “D bottle pen inks” with the “D” referring to the old French unit of measure “la Demi Courtine”

I have personally tried all of the Herbin fountain pen inks with the exception of the new Ocean Blue 1670 Anniversary Ink. My favorites include Perle Noire, Orange Indien, and Violette Pennse.

Which of these inks are your favorites? Are they on your holiday wish list?

  1. Thank You for the beautiful sampler!

    It reminds me that I need to get Rouge Bourgogne to match a fountain pen I got some time ago.

    I also need to find a pen that matches Larmes de Cassis.

    I have at least two or three more Herbin on my wish list.

    It is wonderful to be able to depend on centuries old beauty in products tuned in today’s green standard.

    Big Thumbs Ups to the Herbin/Rhodia/Clairefontaine offerings!

  3. I’d love a bottle of Orange Indien, and Vert Olive. I already have Vert Reseda and Bouquet d’Antan. Luckily for me, J. Herbin inks are locally available here in Metro Manila, at this wonderful wonderland of a store called Scribe.

  5. I love J. Herbin ink! A couple years ago I was searching for the perfect brown ink. I tried many different samples, and ended up buying J. Herbin’s Cafe des Iles. Sadly, I don’t use a fountain pen as much now, so that bottle will probably last me another two years at least.

    I also love their Bleu Pervenche.

  7. Great inks, I really like Poussiere de Lune. While the bottles are great to look at, they are functionally questionable. The neck is really narrow and the bottle is short and wide. Filling from these bottles when ink levels drop below two thirds is near impossible.
