For Pure Pens’ 17th Anniversary in 2021, they commissioned Diamine to make three sheening inks which they are calling The Chartist Inks. They are available individually on Pure Pens website so if you only like one of the colours, you don’t have to buy the whole set.
Pure Pens also had some fun with the bottle labels. On one side, the three bottles form the shield of the City of Newport.
Then if you turn to the other side, they show a section of the Chartist Mosiac Mural.
Today I am trying the first ink in the lineup – People’s Charter. This is a dark red ink with a wet flow. I find the sheen to be quite subtle.
Unsurprisingly, this is ink left a faint line of colour residue and stained the pen barrel. I also recommend cleaning the pen between fillings, even if you are refilling with the same ink.
