Fountain Pen Ink Review
Pen: Lamy 2000 Stainless Steel – Broad
Paper: Kyokuto F.O.B. COOP – Dot Grid – B5
Despite the name, J. Herbin’s Orange Indien is not an india ink, and it will perform just fine in your fountain pen. The ink writes a bit “thin”, which results in great flow, but low saturation. It’s not the brightest ink on the page, but it does exhibit some nice, low-key shading. The color isn’t very bright like Noodler’s Apache Sunset, making it a nice middle of the road orange. Orange Indien is definitely legible on bright white paper, but maybe not as much on cream or off-white. I’m not huge on this orange, but the small bottle is just enough to get a few good fills out of it! Thanks to JetPens for sending the bottle over for review!
