The origins of J.Herbin date back to 1670. At around this time the French sailor, of that name, produced his first ink in his Paris workshop, "The Ink of Ships." This ink was an iron gall ink, required to be waterproof due to the weather and wet conditions associated with sailing a ship.

The recipe may have been formulated for the ship's master on his trips back and forth to India; or when he settled down in Paris to first start producing his sealing wax. Perhaps another sailor made his way to J. Herbin's workshop, and convinced him to produce a ship's ink.

This J.Herbin large fountain pen, comes fully transparent complete with converter for use with bottled ink. It writes a medium 0.5mm line and has a 13.5cm length closed or 15.5cm posted. Please note, this pen does NOT come with in a giftbox or packaging.
