Jacques Herbin Cornaline d'Égypte Ink Review @Exaclair @JetPens

Jacques Herbin 1798 Cornaline d'Égypte is the next ink in the lineup, after Améthyste de l'Oural. I am a fan of the Améthyste and while I really like orange inks, I'm not too sure about this one.

CONS
  • Requires a bit extra attention when cleaning - the shimmer can stick. 
  • I'm not wild about the shading - there is not a whole lot of it. 
  • Not inexpensive!
OVERALL

Well, I must admit I'm not crazy about this ink. I wasn't all that excited when I saw it upon release but now that I have used it more, and even though I love orange inks, this one just doesn't do much for me. I like the color when it's saturated but I don't need to have a whole bottle just for the few times I'll play with it. What do you think of it?



I received this item free of charge for the purposes of this review. I was not compensated monetarily for my review. Everything you've read here is my own opinion.
