Van Dieman's Ink

A Decade in the Desert - Prickly Pear Fountain Pen Ink

A Decade in the Desert - Prickly Pear Fountain Pen Ink


Exclusive to Pen Chalet


There's a certain charm to the desert, a hidden beauty that reveals itself to those who dare to venture into its depths. One such gem is the Prickly Pear, a cactus that thrives in the harshest conditions, its vibrant pink fruits a stark contrast against the barren landscape. Our fourth ink in the "A Decade in the Desert" collection, Prickly Pear, is a celebration of this desert dweller.

Prickly Pear ink is a warm, reddy pink, a color that captures the warmth of the Arizona sun and the unique hue of the Prickly Pear's fruits. It's an ink that's as bold and daring as the desert itself, a color that refuses to be ignored. This ink is for those who believe in making a statement, who aren't afraid to stand out from the crowd.

But the magic of Prickly Pear ink doesn't stop at its vibrant color. As it dries, a green sheen appears, a nod to the Prickly Pear's resilient cactus pads. This unexpected twist adds an element of surprise to your writing, a burst of color that brings your words to life.

Prickly Pear ink is more than just a writing medium. It's a challenge, a dare to be bold, to be different, to let your words echo the spirit of the desert.

Embrace the boldness of the desert with Prickly Pear, and let your words shine as brightly as the Arizona sun.
