J. Herbin Terre de Feu (30ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from nice and earthy This is a lovely, earthy red. It's close to a red oxide color. I use my inks with a bamboo dip pen for sketching. I like to use this color in sketches along with the J. Herbin Vert Empire. As others have said, this ink flows beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Terre de Feu This is one of my favorite inks. It's similar to Cafe des Iles, but with a subtle deep, earthy red that makes it more interesting and alive, but without being garrish like a true red ink.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful good shading It is kind of like black swan in English roses but more saturated, a bit redder and with less shading. It is still great to draw with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome except for one thing... Aloha and Mele Kalikimaka! I love the inks that I purchased, and was excited about the discount and Rhodia pad that arrived. However, the Terre de Feu leaked a little, because, I think there were too many inks in the USPS flat mailer. Otherwise, I couldn't be happier. (And as far as the leakage, it was just a little bit that basically stained part of the box. There was the slightest schmeer of ink on the top of the bottle, and I wouldn't have known about it, except that when I opened the bottle to make sure it was full, a tiny, tiny amount of ink made it to my finger.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fascinating color This is a fascinating color - fire earth. My sample writes much lighter than the sample shown above, and it has very nice shading - not too much - just enough though. I agree with a previous reviewer that at times it is baby poop brown, but then it takes on a rich almost coppery color. For some reason that I can't explain, I really like it (especially since I generally prefer fully saturated, clear colors particularly anything in blue or purple). The drying time on this is between 6-8 seconds. The ink is very water soluble, removing easily with water to a very light brown ghost. I have tried it in my Lamy Copper Orange Al Star with 1.1 stub nib, and I love the pairing of the two. The ink flows very well through the nib, as most of the J. Herbin inks I have tried, and writes smoothly and cleanly. There is no feathering or bleed through on my better papers and even on cheap notebook paper. While it may not have the most professional look to it, it is my favorite "brown" to date. Give it a try. It might just surprise you.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Inkiness The ink itself is a pleasure to write with. It flows well and dries fairly quickly with a little bit of shading. It gets along perfectly with the Platinum Preppy's fine nib. This is just a personal quirk, but the color isn't quite as red as I was hoping. Still, it's a lovely ink to write with. =^.^=

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A bright brown Thus the name Fire Earth, or Red Earth perhaps as loosely translated from the French. It's a happier brown than many. J. Herbin is a favorite ink "designer" of mine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Redder than I expected I really like this ink. But frankly I can't say why. It is an odd color: sometimes it looks dark brown and undistinguished, and sometimes it looks downright red and very striking. I am going to have to work with this ink a bit more before I can make an intelligent comments over and above what I've written. I like it. It is sort of "mysterious". And besides I just love J. Herbin.
