J Herbin Glass Pen - Blue

Product Description

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.

The J. Herbin Glass Pen beautifully compliments their range of tradition ink. The glass dip pen is one of the oldest types of writing instruments around and this hand-crafted addition to J.Herbin's range would make a perfect addition to any desk.

Due to the individual glass pattern, each pen is unique. The spiralled grooves hold a good amount of ink which is slowly moved towards the writing point as you jot away. There is enough reserve to write a couple of lines before you need to dip it into the ink once more.

The writing point is quite fine, but can be sharpened more using 400 grade sandpaper. Naturally however it is on the thinner side of medium when compared to steel and gold fountain pen nibs. It has a length of 190mm and at its widest, a diameter of 14mm.
