PROS
  • Easy to clean.
  • Shades well.
  • Adorable tin. (Collect them all!)
  • Looks good in a calligraphy nib/flex nib.
  • Tolerates some water... not much. But more than some other J. Herbin inks.

CONS
  • Only six cartridges. 
  • No sheen.
OVERALL

This isn't my favorite blue - I find it a little too dilute and unsaturated in dry nibs. I only like to use it in wet nibs, particularly flex nibs, or in my trusty Pilot Parallel. However, the little tin is adorable and I want one of all of them. It's not a horrible ink, but it doesn't pop for me!
