One of the oldest pen ink companies in the world, J. Herbin is a French ink company dating back to 1670. One of the first companies to establish a diverse set of colours, their rectangular bottles with a pen rest have become classic among fountain pen users. Considered to smooth-flowing and quick-drying, this is a great ink for new fountain pen writers, for the office or for your personal journaling.

5 of 5 Great Fast Drying Dark Black September 3, 2017
Reviewer: Anne MacL from Toronto, ON, Canada  
Perle Noir is a very dark black that is fast drying. (Important for lefties like me). It flows well in most pens. (It is bit scratchy in one of my pens but I suspect the nib in that pen needs adjustment. Update: it was the nib, after adjusting it, no more flow problems. No flow problems in any other pens in which I've used this ink either.) I wish it was waterproof but on the hand, it is safe to use in vintage pens.

5 of 5 Best Black I've Ever Used March 3, 2017
Reviewer: Paul Godden from South Frontenac, ON Canada  
In more than 20 years using fountain pens from Cross, Parker, Pilot, Platinum and Waterman, with nibs from extra-fine to Platinum's music, this has been my all-time favorite ink.

I write a lot, probably about 10,000 or more words a day, first in pen and black ink, then edited onto my computer. I want a deep, dark, black tone, fast-drying, no bleed or feathering on my choice of paper; and something that I know won't do any real harm to my favorite pens if I leave one in my travel bag for a month or so.

J. Herbin's Perle Noir has been my choice for years, and is the best I've ever encountered for each of the factors above.

And Wonder Pens supply to Canada quickly, efficiently, with good prices, customer service waaayyy beyond expectations... AND they have a cool bricks and mortar location in Toronto, for when I get to the city - although parking is pretty crap :)

5 of 5 My all time favourite writing black ink May 18, 2016
Reviewer: Nella Pascal from Etobicoke, ON Canada  
This is in my opinion one of the best black inks on the market. It is smooth, dark, and dries within seconds. No smudging. Great for leftties. Performs well in all my pens.
