Ink Swab: J. Herbin’s Cafe Des Iles

Cafe Des Iles001

I picked this color out from Scribe Writing Essentials when I bought the TWSBI Micarta because I wanted a rich brown ink to match the gorgeous color of the pen. I already have J. Herbin’s Lie de The (which is one of my favorites) but I think that the pen called for a darker shade of brown.


Like so. It’s a moderately wet ink, not too much shading on it but if you’re looking for a rich brown, this is a good bet.
