Review: J. Herbin Vert Olive

Vert means green in french and J. Herbin Vert Olive is aptly named. It is a yellow green ink that’s lighter than Rohrer and Klinger Alt-Goldgrün. It is comparatively yellower and lighter. It shades slightly in my EF nib but I realise it will fare better with the broader nib options. Personally, I don’t really like Vert Olive’s shade but it is way more readable than Pilot Iroshizuku Chiku Rin. This is a happy medium between Alt-Goldgrün and Chiku Rin.

Review: J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen

This a magenta ink by J. Herbin that is relatively wet. It is a striking colour that pops right off the page. I enjoy the colour a lot and it reminds me of Sailor Bung Box L’Amant. It shades from a pink-red to a dark purple-red colour. This is an interesting colour for anyone looking for an eye catching colour.
