    “…one bottle will likely last you years…”

    That depends upon how much one writes and what ink one uses. In the last year, I have used up two bottles of ink. One of the J. Herbin Emeraude de Chivor and one of the Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun. Both were 50 ml bottles.

    I use the Alt-Goldgrun as my ink at work. I am a professional Accountant and work for a major manufacturing company. The Emeraude the Chivor has become my ink for use at home, for writing letters and other correspondence.

    I have a few other bottles of ink. I tried some inks before settling upon the above two and my wife gave me some inks that she thought I would like. I use these other bottles for rough copies of my correspondence. Those other inks really will last me for years.

    Before the cold weather sets in, I am making a mental note to order another bottle of the Emeraud de Chivor. That will probably last me through to the spring.

      Two bottles of ink in one year! That’s impressive. Perhaps because I change inks so often, very few of my bottles are even lower than 3/4 full, and for the ones that are, it’s usually because I’ve shared a sample or two out.

      Your two choices, though, Emerald of Chivor and Alt Gold-grun are both great – two favourites of mine. I’m sure your colleagues will recognize you through your choice of ink!

    I agree, Diamine Steel Blue is a winner. I got a sample once and fell in love with it. I am glad to see that you have it in stock!
