Montblanc Lavender Purple Ink Relaunched


Recommended Posts

For those of you who love it and were disappointed that it was withdrawn, I can confirm that Montblanc have relaunched their Violet Lavender Purple ink. :)


It's in the same box and the same 60ml bottle, Made in Austria, and my bottle expires Nov 2018. I assume that expiry date will be key to knowing that it's the latest relaunch stock.


Edited: It's called Lavender Purple

Did you purchase a bottle somewhere? How are you confirming the existence? Just asking for a clarification, not trying to be cynical or anything. Thank you for giving the MB Violet/Lavender Purple lovers some hope!

I was hoping to try their purple! Is it still called Lavender purple or are they back to Violet Purple?

Sorry, I should have had the box in front of me. It's Lavender Purple

I really, really hope this is true! Recently, I was browsing the various online retailers for a suitable MB Lavender Purple replacement and realized that there is no substitute.

Its not showing on Montblanc's UK site yet, but no surprises there really as we get everything last in the Uk, except the joke ;)

Thanks for letting us know - I like purple inks, so I'm going to add this to my list. I think it will compliment my Iroshizuku's Yamabudo and Murasaki-Shikibu nicely...

I heard a new MB boutique is supposed to be opening in downtown Montreal on April 1st, on boul. De Maisonneuve. Hopefully it will come equipped with all the new inks because the current straggler authorized dealers still allowed to be carrying the brand seem to be woefully behind the ink times.

April 1st?


And you are serious I believe?


Ok but you must admit that the date you're presenting does sound a little... fishy...




Keep me posted, I'd love to buy ink at normal prices without shipping


Found one in Laval ( no affiliation whatsoever) but they are out of Lavender purple

The person who is opening the downtown MB store is reportedly the same one who owns the Laval location. Hopefully bringing in new stock will include a full complememt of ink supplies to both places.

I did manage to order some Irish green from Laval, in CDN funds and 5$ delivery :)

Cheaper than taking my car from the South shore and the time it would take me to get back and forth. 5$ !! You betcha!

Could not pass it up

      I have the Sailor Naginata and some fancy blade nibs coming after 2022 by a number of new workshop from China.  With all my respect, IMHO, they are all (bleep) in doing chinese characters.  Go use a bush, or at least a bush pen.

      It is the reason why I'm so keen on the idea of a personal library — of pens, nibs, inks, paper products, etc. — and spent so much money, as well as time and effort, to “build” it for myself (because I can't simply remember everything, especially as I'm getting older fast) and my wife, so that we can “know”; and, instead of just disposing of what displeased us, or even just not good enough to be “given the time of day” against competition from >500 other pens and >500 other inks for our at

      Agreed.  And I think it’s good to be aware of this early on and think about at the point of buying rather than rationalizing a purchase..

      Alas, one cannot know “good” without some idea of “bad” against which to contrast; and, as one of my former bosses (back when I was in my twenties) used to say, “on the scale of good to bad…”, it's a spectrum, not a dichotomy. Whereas subjectively acceptable (or tolerable) and unacceptable may well be a dichotomy to someone, and finding whether the threshold or cusp between them lies takes experiencing many degrees of less-than-ideal, especially if the decision is somehow influenced by factors o

      I got my first real fountain pen on my 60th birthday and many hundreds of pens later I’ve often thought of what I should’ve known in the beginning. I have many pens, the majority of which have some objectionable feature. If they are too delicate, or can’t be posted, or they are too precious to face losing , still they are users, but only in very limited environments..  I have a big disliking for pens that have the cap jump into the air and fly off. I object to Pens that dry out, or leave blobs o
