J. Herbin 1670 Fountain Pen Ink - Rouge Hematite - 50 ml. Bottle
To celebrate the 340th anniversary of the founding of Herbin, a new color was introduced, "Rouge Hematite," especially made for this event. With a dark red color and earthy tone, Rouge Hematite ink is a reminder of the historic color of the Herbin logo and the sealing wax used by members of the royal courts.
The sealing wax on the bottle is reminiscent of the Herbin wax used for the "grand cru" wines of France. The design on the box represents the life of Herbin. The ship, anchor and palm tree represent navigation and discovery. The crown is a reference to the red sealing wax used by the royal court.

FAQ's About our pens
Can your pens be engraved?
We are honored that you would want your name on one of our pens, but unfortunately we are unable to engrave them. Due mainly to the materials we use to handcraft these works of art, engraving is virtually impossible and would damage the pen.
Are your pens REALLY handmade?
Yup! See for yourself.
Where are your pens made?
All Pitchman pens are individually handcrafted in Johns Creek, GA USA.
What is Pāua Abalone?
New Zealand Abalone (Pāua Shell) is the most colourful abalone shell in the world. Its iridescent nacre features deep blue and green hues with flashes of pink and purple. Unique to New Zealand, pāua shells are harvested from rocky coastlines. Pāua is one of the most sustainably managed wild abalone fisheries in the world. The material for these pens was sliced and cast in a high quality acrylic around the pen body allowing the true brilliant color of the material to show through.
What is Rhodium?
Rhodium is probably a metal you don’t hear about very often. It's extremely rare and is only a byproduct of mining platinum, copper, or nickel.
Rhodium is a whitish-silver metallic element. It belongs to the platinum family, and you can only find trace amounts of it inside platinum or nickel ore.
Rhodium holds the record as the most expensive metal in the world because no one's discovered a rhodium mine. Since its discovery in 1803 by William Wollaston, nearly 80% of all rhodium comes from platinum mines in South Africa. Since it's only a trace element in these mines, we have very little material available annually. To give you an idea of how rare and expensive this metal is—only 20 tons are mined per year. And in March 2020, its price reached an all-time high of $13,800 an ounce.
What is meant by a Non-Postable pen?
Non-postable means that the cap DOES NOT attach to the other end of the pen - it has to be set on the table when writing. Pitchman pens are larger format and heavier than most, therefore attaching the cap would make the pen uncomfortable to use.
