I caught pink eye this week, and fell behind my posting schedule, so today I’m playing catch up. Today’s next ink is J Herbin Bleu des Profondeurs, which I will now refer to as BDP. This ink was released this year, and is available in 10ml and 30ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a bottle over for review.
BDP is a beautiful dark blue, almost a navy.
In large swabs there is just a little bit of bronzy sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 20 seconds
Water resistance: Low
Feathering: Low-there was some feathering in the flex nib on Rhodia.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was just a little bit of feathering, and some bleeding in the flex nib.
Overall, I like the wet flow this ink has, and it’s a nice color. My only issue with this ink is that it’s so wet that it causes some bleeding in flex nibs on all papers.
