2 - Sampler Bottles of J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink - NOW MORE COLORS!


This is a sampler of two, 10ml bottles of J. Herbin Fountain Pen 'D' Style ink. The French made, J. Herbin fountain pen inks are frequently rated the highest quality of ink for fountain and dip pens.

If you've ever wanted to sample different colors before "taking the plunge" and purchasing the larger 30ml bottles of this ink, this in your chance.

You choose the two ink colors. Our current choices are:

• Perle Noir (Black)
• Rouge Caroubier (Red)
• Orange Indien (Orange)
• Violette Pensee (Violet)
• Lierre Sauvage (Deep Green)
• Rose Cyclamen (Deep Pink)
• Eclat de Saphir (Blue)
• Ambre de Birmani (Amber Gold)
• Vert Empire (Empire Green)

Please choose your two colors from the drop down menu.

We are constantly ordering more J. Herbin Fountain Pen inks in different colors, so please check back to see if colors you'd like are in stock. We'll also be doing some more photography and ink swatches very soon.

We carry many of these colors in larger 30ml bottles which retail for $11.00 each. (Check our ink section for more colors and bottle sizes.)

This ink is:

• Non toxic and pH neutral
• Water based
• Flows smoothly and is fast drying
• Made from all natural dyes

These are known as "D" bottle pen inks. The "D" refers to the old French unit of measure "la Demi Courtine".

J. Herbin is the oldest name in pen inks in the world. "The Jewel of Inks" was created in Paris in 1700.

We’ve discovered that fountain pen ink flows more easily than calligraphy ink when using with dip pens or glass pens. If you’re just beginning with calligraphy or dip pen and ink drawing you may find this ink to be a great choice.

This ink ships via USPS Priority Mail which takes 1 to 3 days in the U.S. We will ship out the following business day from receipt of order.

J. Herbin uses all natural dyes in their fountain pen inks. They have a neutral pH which makes them archival. This ink works equally well with dip pens, but is not waterproof, nor does it have shellac like some of the other calligraphy inks we carry.

Arcane Objects shops the world for the highest quality writing ink. We carry a large variety of colors of ink for both fountain pens, calligraphy, and drawing. Visit the ink section of our shop to see our full selection.
