If you have been thinking about trying another ink color in your fountain pen, but have some trepidation, try this ink. You don't have to get an entire 30ml bottle either. This ink can be had in cartridge form at: http://www.amazon.com/J-Herbin-Refills-Fountain-Cartridge/dp/B00A6VZNR8/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1422027102&sr=8-2&keywords=lie+de+the+cartridge
Update: never fails to flow, that might be in part the fountain pen it's on, a Pelikan m400; interestingly when seen next to a Namiki Iroshizuku Yama Guri it looks a little reddish to my eyes, not that it has changed. I've also noticed it keeps the same color when it dries, unlike other inks.
Just to follow up:
1st, I think the color on the box does this ink a slight disservice as it misses the golden tone.
2nd, I've experienced the ink really darkening notably over time, to like a dark chocolate color; this darkening is also happening with the Vert Empire as well though not so bad. Both are in cheap Parker Betas so I'm thinking it may be due to the loose seal of the cap letting air in and the exposure to air is causing the ink to darken. I just filled a new Baoer 388 with it and it's the original golden brown color I remember; washed and refilled the Beta and it's golden again, too. Have filled a new Baoer 801 with e Vert and it's the proper greyish green. The caps on both of these are much tighter fitting than the Betas so I'll see how they do with the ink and report back in a few weeks.
It doesn't feather on trash paper, even with a super wet 1.1 stub. Dry times are fast. Showthrough is moderate and bleedhthrough is minimal, but there (only on aforementioned trash paper with wet stub)
It's a wonderfully wet flowing, well lubricated ink, too.
I don't normally like browns (apart from noodlers golden brown) but this is a heavy shader indeed, very professional, very pretty, very well behaved.
It really does remind me of black tea that's oxidized in the cup for a while.
The 30ml is basically a "trial" bottle. You really can't go wrong for the price, just buy some!
Lie De The' writes light in a fine point, I thought I should mention, so it's not easy to read. At medium it's plenty dark. There's shading to be had at any size but nothing in sheen that I can see (although it's said to have it.) What you'll get varies considerably as you change nibs and papers but that keeps me interested--besides I have a number of pens going at any one time. That same quality may not go over so well with somebody who needs more predictably.
This is my first J. Herbin ink and may very well be the brand of my next bottle. (They've been doing it since the 17th century!) Four and a half stars.
