Thanks everyone for contributing.

I have settled on Private Reserve Ebony Purple. :) It looks like the closest to a purple-black, which is just what I'm looking for.

Tom.

I was also looking for a dark purple ink when I looked at Goulet's ink sample palooza.

 

I selected De Atramentis Alexander Hamilton, and it's exactly like I expected.

 

If you can afford to buy a Sailor Bung Box ink next September, then you should look at Sweet Potato Purple

I really like Diamine Bilberry--it shades beautifully.

Diamine Damson is one of may favorites. Dark enough to be business appropriate, well behaved and easy to maintain.

Add another vote each for Noodler's La Reine Mauve and Sailor Shigure. LRM is an "eternal" ink so I like it for note taking. Shigure flows beautiful but is very very dark. I can honestly say that the Sailor Four Seasons inks are my favourite line because of hpw wonderfully they flow and Shigure is no exception.

Hi Tom,

 

I just saw that you picked the Ebony purple but in case you decide you need more :P I was actually just looking for a purple black too, and I ordered the SankoDo Nishikisan Purple Black by Sailor this week after seeing Saskia_Madding's beautiful photos and recommendations of the ink. Here is a link:

Another even darker purple black is the Bung Box Ink of the Witch also by Sailor (and some photos once again in another great review from Saskia_Madding :) ):

I wanted something that was on the blue side rather than the red side for a dark purple.  I found the perfect ink for me in Diamine Bilberry.

What did you decide?


Fountain pens are my preferred COLOR DELIVERY SYSTEM (in part because crayons melt in Las Vegas).

Try Caran d'Ache STORM.

A little more expensive than French perfume but worth it. :)

Specially if you can put your hands on it, the Colours of Earth series is out from stock, and eve the basic Blue Sky and Carbon is getting rare... But the Chromatics are nice to and the Ultra Violet is the closest. But definitely have wonderful bottles and perfect ink flow.

I am glad you have made R&K Scabiosa as one of your choices.  For the last year or so I've had Scabiosa in my ink rotation.  It's not a very dark purple ink,  but it has a tremendous ability to shade.
