Ink Review: J. Herbin Bleu Azur

J. Herbin Bleu Azur ink writing samples

J. Herbin Bleu Azur. This aptly named ink is a very light blue, and such a clear, pure color that it reminds me of the spring sky.

I am a huge blue ink fan. But honestly I had never used Bleu Azur because I remember reading so many negative comments about it.  Which once again teaches me to ignore that kind of thing.  Bleu Azur does not work in every pen, but if you pick the right pen, it’s lovely, and legible.

  1. A very valuable lesson you’ve demonstrated here: don’t give up on an ink too quickly. Sometimes it takes a few tries to find the right pen/ink (and even paper) combination.

  2. Wow, it really is a special ink! I love how it has that little hint of purple in it – it’s way more than just heavily diluted blue. Clever! And I’m really impressed that you can still read it even after a soaking!

    It’s an ink I can really picture using for special writing, like for the message in a birthday card 🙂
