From J Herbin:
Today, Herbin inks are widely used and internationally renowned.
To celebrate the 340th Anniversary of our founding, we are introducing the "1670" ink especially made for this event.
The blue ink recalls the sea voyages of M. Herbin, a sailor. From his many journeys to India he brought back to Paris formulas for manufacturing sealing wax. His special lacquer formula improved the quality of the seals in adhesion and neatness, helping him to become famous throughout the kingdom.
