Pure Pens based in Newport, south Wales, have launched a series of their own branded and 'Bottled in Wales' inks and this short comment features just two of the series, which arrived in the post this morning. There are far more details on their website and no doubt, there will be many more reviews and comparisons in the coming months but I just wanted to show a couple of images.
I just wanted two colours at the moment - Celtic Sea and Saltire. I also purchased one of the TWSBI Eco T pens from them - blue to use with the Celtic Sea one but more about that on another occasion.
Celtic Sea is a lovely colour, with tones of a relatively light blue/green that really do make me think of the sea. Very pleasant to use and it flows well.
Saltire is wonderful. Just my sort of colour and even with the F nib on a TWSBI 580, there is a definite red sheen which isn't always easy to see on a scanned image.
Judging by comments made on Twitter and Instagram, there will be more colours available, which is very exciting. I don't know where the inks are made but based on the slight aroma of one of them, I have my suspicions.
A great new product range to ad to PP's extensive arsenal and I can only see them being firm favourites. Especially if a blue-black shade is offered sometime!
