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?
