MATERIALS AND DESIGNS
Our goal has been to design a writing object that is both beautiful and durable. That is to say, to favor a design and mechanisms that can last over time. The choice of materials is also important:
- Treated and brushed brass for interior mechanism and attributes
- Precious resin machined in the mass
- Gold-plated or palladium-plated steel nib with irridium point, or German-made roller point
- Jacques Herbin logo engraving on the nib
- Spring loaded clip-on cap clip
All our pens are machined and assembled in France in workshops in the Haut-Jura, on the border of Switzerland near the watchmaking area.

Maintenance and advice on use
To restore the shine to your pen, it should be cleaned with a soft cloth (never use solvent-based products). For all golden or silver parts, use a micro fiber cloth as for spectacle lenses.
It is preferable to use Jacques Herbin cartridges or ink for the quality of its dyes, moreover it is filtered several times so that no deposit or microelements can clog the duct.
To clean your nib unit and your pump, you can fill it with a special cleaner (Herbin brand) or lukewarm water by circulating the liquid between the pump and the unit. Repeat the plunger effect until the water / cleanser is clear.
To avoid any risk of leakage when traveling by plane, equip your pen with a new cartridge or a full converter, and carry the head up.
Remember to clean the nib block after prolonged non-use.
