Ebony Purple.....

 

Well, I love grape, but 2 years later and I haven't gotten the stains out.  Syrah is beautiful but too dry for me.  I just loaded up Ebony Purple and it's a sneaky color.  It looks black. Then, it looks purple. I could take it into court and get away with signing a document.  

 

:)  And you made me smile.

LOL :)

 

I've just tried them again with a Japanese F nib. Interesting result, it lays a finer but much darker line, so the Grape looks as dark (black) as the Ebony Purple in the pictures above. A black with violet tinge, very classy. I guess the japanese pen manages to lay down the same quantity of ink except in a thinner line thus the increased saturation.

 

The Syrah with extra saturation looks gorgeous too. :wub:

 

Now that you scared me about staining, I'll refrain from inking an ExtraFine.... :P

In fairness, purples are more prone to staining.

Have you all seen the Officially Licensed Pacman Ghost lamp? My husband is already chomping at the bit for me to buy it for him (he's a big fan of the game).

They're alll nice but I think i'd go with ebony purple because it's the most conservative for general purpose use. I think syrah is the most aesthetic though
