Wherein my Dixie #10 Red Rebellion Noodler's Konrad Ebonite (IM) is paired with J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite.
On my Dixie #10 Red Rebellion Noodler's Konrad Ebonite (IM) joined its comrades when it was filled with J. Herbin 1670 Rouge Hematite. The pen was in use for 2 months and was emptied and cleaned on , saying good-bye to its fellows.
I cannot think Christmas without thinking of red and gold. I cannot think of J. Herbin without thinking of Rouge Hematite, a red ink with gold flecks and sheen. To my mind there is no better red ink for Christmas! I decided to put this in my Red Rebellion Konrad in part because I can easily disassemble it for cleaning, and because the nib on this pen should aid in showing the gold flecks in this ink.
I have long loved Rouge Hematite, and it worked great in this pen. There does appear to be some light staining on the ink window of the pen, but as this pen can be disassembled I might try a deep and thorough cleaning. I expect I will use this combination again in the future. The nib allowed for a good amount of the gold flecks in the ink to appear on the page, which was precisely what I was looking for. Unfortunately, I did not write many Christmas letters so I was not able to write the pen dry as fast as I had hoped.
