This week I’m making my way through some J Herbin inks, and today’s ink is J Herbin Rouge Grenat. This ink is new this year, and is available in 10ml and 30ml bottles. Thanks to Pen Chalet for sending a bottle over for review.
Rouge Grenat is a dark red, almost a burgundy.
In large swabs the ink looks very dark.
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
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, it’s well behaved. There are a lot of inks close in this color range, great for fall or winter.
