J. Herbin is the world's oldest name in fountain pen ink, having been established by Monsieur Herbin in 1670. M. Herbin's famous Perle des Encres (The Jewel of Inks) pen ink was created in his shop on the Rue des Fosses Saint-Germain in Paris in 1700.
J. Herbin fountain pen ink is one of our favourites for its multitude of shades and colours and consistently high quality ink, which you would expect after some three hundred years of refinement. Given the exceptional quality, J. Herbin fountain pen ink represents one of the best value inks available.
Finally of course, J. Herbin's rich heritage and tradition carries no little atttraction; J. Herbin inks were used by Louis XIV and Victor Hugo, author of Hunchback of Notre Dame and Les Miserables.
