After having used disposable ballpoint pens for the past few years, my childhood interest of fountain pens was recently perked by a friend. I have begun rekindle my avid interest for fountain pens, which had been dissipated by their gradual disappearance from the shelves of conventional stationary stores.
One of my first steps, was to reach back into my childhood belongings. I also signed up for The Goulet Pen Conpany’s Monthly Ink Drop, became a member of the Fountain Pen Network and finally made a few purchases on Amazon, TheGouletPenCompany and eBay.
As a fountain pen enthusiast, traditionally, one my roles is to review ink samples. Albeit, I’m not the first FPenthusiast on the internet, I will appreciate any constructive criticism to improve my work.
The J. Herbin Poussière de Lune, which basically means: Moon Dust, for those of us that don’t speak French (Thanks Google Translate!). It belongs to the J. Herbin’s The Jewel of Inks (”La Perle des Encres”) series. The ink is a foggy/misty deep purple hue, which makes the name seems appropriate. In addition, most notable about about J. Herbin inks is that they are one the oldest producers of ink, that is still produced in the traditional organic method.
Thanks Goulet Pens!
