|Handwritten Review: J Herbin – Stormy Grey|
There has been so much chatter in the fountain pen community about J Herbin’s Stormy Grey ink. So much anticipation. It’s all about that gold sheen, baby.
When Goulet Pens finally announced that they had it in stock, it was sold out in under an hour – and I missed it. Arrrrgh.
I hurried over to Amazon to see if I could find it there – score! It’s the same price at both places – $26 for 50 ml.
Above: Like the other J Herbin special editions, this bottle is extra special, sealed with wax, and quite lovely. Except that only the smallest pens could fit into the opening of the bottle. And my wax on the screw top is already cracked – whomp whomp.
Below: The sheeny bits came to a rest at the bottom of the bottle. You’ll want to shake well before using this ink.
Below: Sheen on the towel that I used to wipe my nib. Crazy, right?
All of that Stormy Grey sheen is just fine, but how does it write?
Looking for the sheeniest sheeny picture of them all? Check out my friend rubengamez’s feed on Instagram. It’s crazy good sheen!
