Pure Pens Ink - Cadwaladr
The Pure Pens Ink range was first launched in February 2018 by our sister website. The idea behind the ink was to provide a high-quality series to customers, which was affordable, and also told a bit about the company in the process. With Pure Pens a proud Welsh company, developing Celtic-themed inks seemed entirely befitting. Many of the inks tend to sit in between other ink producers' main colours, giving fountain pens another unique palette to add to their collection. The Cadwaladr ink is the namesake of the King of Gwynedd, AD 655-682. A mythical figure of Welsh culture, King Cadwaladr was the last King of Britain and boasted the famous red dragon on his coat of arms. That dragon of course is the renowned creature that adorns the Welsh flag as it is today. Shading with each downstroke, giving it a consistently vibrant appearance, Cadwaladr sits on the boundary between blood red and claret. Its deep tones are furthered by the almost brown/ black pools created by the shade. The ink comes bottled in a retro-shaped 60ml bottle, which is hand-filled, hand-labelled and hand-sealed!
