PROS
  • Waterproof.
  • Insanely fun and beautiful gold particles.
Review: J. Herbin Stormy Grey Ink @BureauDirect
CONS
  • Feathers on various papers. I experienced feathering on Rhodia. 
  • Hard to clean - best in pens you can disassemble and flush completely. Gold particles stick.
  • Bottle of the neck is very narrow, so wide pens barely fit in the mouth.

OVERALL

I don't even care that this ink feathers on some papers. I am crazy about it. The particles are utterly beautiful and it totally makes up for the (let down) of Bleu Ocean. I love it. Get a bottle and go wild.

j. herbin stormy gray, really great gray ink because of the gold sparkles! I don't like gray inks very much i have the mb 90 years permanent gray and the oyster gray and i don't use them a lot. This is really different but certainly hard to clean ;).

All I can say is wow! Bleu Ocean was kind of a dud, indeed.
