Is One Of These In Your Future?


Jet Pens sent three purple inks for review. That will take some time to complete, but for now, enjoy the swatches made to find pens compatible with the ink colors and characteristics. Will any of them make it to your holiday wish list?

  • Pelikan 4001 Violet
  • Caran d’Ache Chromatics Ultra Violet
  • Diamine Bilberry

On a Rhodia Ice pad of course!


























  1. that bilberry. so yummy.


  2. I’ve got the Pelikan violet in both cartridge and bottled ink, and I’ve found it very blue, almost disappointingly so.


  3. I have the Pelikan 4001 Violet and love it (I believe I saw a review by Heath Cates about it). I also like the Diamine Bilberry–I might try a sample of that. Another purple you might like is Diamine Lavender. Diamine Magenta Violet is another color I use frequently. And I love Pilot Iroshizuku Murasaki Shikibu.


    • That’s a wide range of purple inks. Diamine Violet and J. Herbin Poussiere de Lune are my most frequently used purples. Caran d’Ache Storm used to be on that list, but it was discontinued. Perhaps the list will get extended to three or four with the new inks. More on that after the reviews.
