J. Herbin Ink Cartirdges (6)
Established in 1670 in France, J. Herbin is the oldest production ink maker in the world. Their 30 ml bottles have a unique rectangular shape that doubles as a pen rest. Pens can balance on the flat area on the top of the bottle near the cap. When you don't want to deal with a bottle, however, their cartridges are an excellent, quick solution.
The J. Herbin cartridges are filled with the same ink as used in the bottles (the "D bottle pen inks." The “D” refers to an old French unit of measure the “la Demi Courtine” This “The Jewel of Inks” line was created in J. Herbin's shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.).
The J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink Cartridge 6-Pack Tin collection is smooth, alluring, and sharp. Formulated with natural dyes, it has a non-acidic neutral pH and is known for its quick-drying ability. This collection is suitable for both fountain and roller ball pens that accept short international ink cartridges.
We used pictures of the bottles because you can zoom in on those and see the colors a little more clearly.
Please understand that colors will appear differently when viewed on a backlit computer screen versus drawn from a fountain pen onto paper. Feel free to call us at Flax Pen To Paper if you are either unfamiliar with the ink colors or would like help in making a selection. (In store, we have a book showing actual use of each ink color we sell.)
