J. Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivor Review-11Notes:
So, I’ve found my new favorite ink…this one. J. Herbin’s Emerald of Chivor is an awesome shade of teal with the signature 1670 gold flakes. In addition to the gold, there’s an incredible red sheen seen around the edges of each letter and where the ink pools – resulting in an ink with intense depth. The ink flows well, if anything a bit on the wet side in my Lamy 2000’s broad nib. There’s so much depth to this interesting ink and I absolutely love it. Even my friends who have seen it (who couldn’t care less about fountain pens and ink) commented on how cool it looked. I think the ink looks best in a broad nib, and even better in a folded nib dip pen. On top of the gold flakes, the red sheen, and the high saturation, the ink has a nice degree of shading. J. Herbin really hit it out of the park with this intensely complex ink!

Be on the lookout for Emerald of Chivor in stores later this summer!

  1. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I knew this ink was special, but your review shows it to be a most exceptionally gorgeous ink — it is beyond what I could imagine a beautiful ink to be. I so look forward to getting into the fray, trying to get a bottle early. Love that you used a folded pen!

  2. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I knew this would be a gorgeous ink, but your review shows that it is beyond my wildest imaginations of what the epitome of a beautiful ink might be. I love that you used a folded pen, but I am so happy to see it look so extraordinary in your bold-nibbed fountain men.

    I am looking forward to joining the fray to acquire an bottle early!

  3. absolutely i was waiting for this review. appreciated much. as one of those lucky guys who had the opportunity to try all four 1670s, can you please compare their “gold” ratio? i use blue ink for my everyday needs but when i read around most of the reviewers think that “1670 bleu ocean” doesnt represent that “gold” as others. if so i may choose the “1670 stormy grey”. should i try “1670 emerald of chivor” for my semi-formal use? what can you say about that?
