J. Herbin 1670 Emerald of Chivor


I have been playing with my sample of the new Emerald of Chivor. I had already pored over a great review, and I had even seen a writing sample in person, so I knew it looked spectacular.  But writing with it has confirmed that this is really an awesome ink.  As you can see in the photo above, the sheen and shimmer come through even with fine and extra-fine nibs.

  1. Diamine looks to be stepping into the breach with their forthcoming Shimmer inks. There are some great early reviews of those on Fountain Pen Geeks Forum by Chrissy. I can’t wait to try some of them.


  2. Yeah, it certainly looks more vivid than the Blue or Grey (the blue is especially anemic I thought), yet more useable than the red which is kind of all-singing all-dancing 😛 Wish they’d try another color of inclusion.


  3. I don’t think I could use it daily, but I was really surprised by how much I loved this. It’s the best of the four, in my personal opinion, and one of the best new inks I’ve tried in a long time.


  4. Another amazing ink in a series of them! I can’t believe how useable these are, for such a luxurious item. You could definitely use them daily if you can afford them, because the sheen is just this clever wee bonus reserved for anyone who looks close 🙂

    Thanks for the gorgeous photos 🙂
