J. Herbin Caroube De Chypre 1670 – Ink Review

Hello Friends! The Goulet Pen Company kindly sent me a sample of the newest edition to the J.Herbin 1970 series of inks, Caroube De Chypre.

*Diamine Oxblood scanned shows more red than with regular lighting (see photos below)

I’m not a huge fan of brown inks, but this ink has a warm undertone reminds me of old leather and has nice green sheen and sparkle. Although, I wouldn’t be able to get away with this ink at work, I think it would give a nice look to a letter without being too over-the-top colorful.

If you’re like me and own all the other J.Herbin 1670 inks, then this is a nice addition to the ink collection :)

Quick note: Particles in inks mean more maintenance if you use these in fountain pens! (Goulet Pens has a video on inks that require more maintenance on YouTube: https://youtu.be/nO3pREn4wro)

Have you tried this ink? What are your thoughts?

Images scanned in with minimal level adjustment (unless noted) and photos taken with Samsung NX mini (without flash).  As with any ink scans and/or photos I try to be consistent in color. What you see on your monitor might not be the actual color, but it should be a fairly close representation. I received this ink sample from The Goulet Pen Company for the purposes of review. All opinions in this review are mine, and are not bias based on how I received it.

Thank you so much for your support and for viewing this post!
