Dating back to a small boutique in Paris in 1700, Herbin Fountain Pen Ink is one of the best in the world, both in smoothness of writing and breadth and brilliance of colour palette. Bleu Nuit is Herbin's darkest colour after Perle Noir. A blue-blackish shade that tends towards a dark purple, this ink resembles the starry night sky. The ink runs fairly thinly, so can be used without trouble in a broad nib. Great for professional use! All Herbin inks are pH neutral and non-toxic. They are water-based and therefore will run if wetted. The inks are light fast and only natural dyes are used. We recommend high quality paper with Herbin Ink.
