It appears that majority of the ink I have reviewed is by J. Herbin. I would say it is the mystique of J. Herbin’s background that allures me to try it out. The idea that J. Herbin as a sailor traveled to India and was inspired by India Ink fascinates me. Moreover, an ink company that was found almost 120 years before the French Revolution and still thrives today is amazing. Little ink anecdotes entertain me. What can I say, I am nerdy like that. Another important factor is that J. Herbin’s ink is quite approachable in price. It is amazing how much a jar of ink can cost! If you are curious and willing to venture outside of Parker’s Quink (I use Quink since I was 9, and I still go back to it from time to time), J. Herbin could be a good starting point.
Here is a review on J. Herbin’s commemorative ink. Isn’t it so vibrant and cheerful?
P.S. I just realized that there are spelling errors (gasp!) in the writing sample. Sorry for not running spell check!
