Pen: Pilot Vanishing Point, Medium Nib
Ink: J. Herbin Bleu Pervenche
Paper: Kyokuto F.O.B. COOP – Dot Grid – B5
When I saw that J. Herbin now offers small sample size bottles, I had to jump at it! Thanks to JetPens for sending over the bottle for review! As vibrant and nice as the color is, the performance of the ink is rather poor. The wet flow writes nicely, but results in some pretty bad feathering and bleed through. I haven’t had this issue with other J. Herbin inks, making this atypical. There are plenty of other blues out there, lots very similar. Unfortunately, I’d recommend passing on this one. If you like what you see and you absolutely have to have it, it does work well on Rhodia paper.
