Van Dieman's The Wilderness Series Huon Pine - 30ml Fountain Pen Ink

  • $12.95


The Lagarostrobes Franklinii is an ancient yet threatened tree, living as long as 3,500 years, native only to Tasmania and found solely in the damp, subalpine southernmost regions of the island.  The Huon is not a true pine, but the solitary member of its own family. This ink takes its colour from The Huon Pine’s rich green foliage and is inspired by its uniqueness. Darker than our Apple Island Green, yet not as deep as Styx Valley Forest Green, this ink is a perfectly balanced green for any writer.

Van Dieman's Wilderness Series is ten fountain pen inks inspired by the majestic, beautiful and ofttimes humbling wonders that await in the Tasmanian wilds. As an extension of our original Van Dieman's Colours of Tasmania, and as a series unto itself, we created the Wilderness Series to encapsulate the natural colours of this awe-inspiring and untouched southern land.

About Van Dieman's Ink

Van Dieman's Ink is an Australian owned and operated company situated in Launceston Tasmania, and is also an affiliate of JINHAO Pens Australia, which is also Australian owned and operated, and retails the high quality Fountain Pens produced by JINHAO. Our water based fountain pen inks are mixed utilizing a method that maximizes colour longevity, improves flow viscosity and generates a sumptuously enjoyable writing experience, but also avoids the unpleasant acrid smell that fountain pen ink is generally well known for. In line with our own love for this great state of Tasmania, Van Dieman's Inks try to encapsulate some of the natural beauty this land has to offer.

Each of the dozen colours on offer is designed from and named after a location, natural aspect or product of Tasmania. From our best-selling "Devil Black", an aggressive little ink with an equally notorious namesake, to our majestic, well cherished and protected "Styx Valley Forest Green", to our chilled and serene "Freycinet Aquamarine" and our deliciously tempting "Tamar Pinot Noir Wine Red", Van Dieman's inks are both a cut above the rest and a step outside the norm. 

Be adventurous and explore the possibilities these inks have to offer.
