This is my favorite for a water resistant wet vivid purple.

How are folks getting KWZI these days? That is beautiful and I really like purple ink for my personal writing.

You can order directly from Konrad on his website or wait until the next group buy.

I also like the darker purples.  Two of my favorites are Montblanc Lavender Purple  and J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune, although they might be too red-tinged for your taste.  Another really interesting ink is Rohrer and Klingner Scabiosa, which is a lilac gray, not at all tinged with red, but highly variable in how dark it is on different papers.   

 

I am starting to think that I got an anomalous bottle of Diamine Grape.  Mine is so close to black that at work everyone has assumed it is black.

Another vote for the Montblanc Lavender Purple, I am not a huge purple fan but I do really enjoy this ink from time to time.  I do not have any images but there is a review on it here at http://www.fountainp...avender-purple/

The Montblanc Lavender Purple is one of my favourite inks. It's a nice dark purple with beautiful (almost black) shading.

The mention of PR Ebony Purple had me tapping my head, and I after digging a bit I realized I'd done a tree using it  last year. It's a beautiful ink...

There is another good blue purple from Sailor special store series by Kingdom Note, called Sasakia Charonda (O-Murasaki) which I enjoy. It's the latin name of this particular butterfly in Japan. I just remembered it as you mentioned the Japanese companies. I have a writing sample of it from another thread that I posted a little while ago. This ink behaves well just as many other Sailor inks, has great flow, and doesn't stain my demonstrator pens too badly. But purple inks are purple inks, I wouldn't put them in pure white pens for example.

That is a beautiful color. It is so hard to choose a purple.

It seems to me that finding a purple/violet ink that does not look like a blue ink is a tough job. (For me at least.) I must continue the hunt.

Try Diamine Grape, for me it seems a bit reddish for my taste
