Top 5 Purple Fountain Pens

Have you ever taken a moment to ponder purple pens? Possibly perceiving these picks as potential purchases? Well, I have! That’s why I’m excited to share my top five personal favorite punchy purple fountain pens, perfect for all your penmanship needs. Let's dive into a world where purple reigns supreme!

Pilot Metropolitan in Violet Leopard

Pilot Violet Leopard Metropolitan Fountain Pen

 First up, we have the Pilot Metropolitan in Violet Leopard. This pen has a striking dark purple shade, perfect for those who lean towards violet or violet-blue hues and prefer a more conservative color. But don’t be fooled; the leopard print accent adds a youthful, edgy twist to the otherwise classic design.

Pilot Metropolitan Retro Pop Purple Fountain Pen

The Pilot Metropolitan model offers a variety of beautiful purples, and it was a tough call between the Violet Leopard and the Retro Pop Purple. The latter boasts a mid-range purple that I adore, but there's something irresistible about the Leopard's boldness!

Leopard print might not be everyone's idea of conservative, but on this pen, it's surprisingly subtle. All Metropolitans feature a brass body, giving them a beautiful softness to the color that you just don’t get with colored resin. The nib is super reliable, arguably one of the best steel nibs for the price, and it includes a cartridge and a converter.

Diplomat Magnum in Prismatic Purple

Diplomat Magnum Fountain Pen - Prismatic Purple

Next up is the Diplomat Magnum in Prismatic Purple—the pen that immediately came to mind when I started thinking about this list! There's really no purple fountain pen we sell that comes close to this unique, intoxicating pearlescent sheen. It's the best seller of the Diplomat Magnum series, and it's easy to see why. Although it's a lightweight, plastic pen, the stunning prismatic color more than compensates for its lack of heft. Plus, you get a German steel nib with a touch of flexibility that adds to its allure. Don’t overlook the Magnum, especially not in Prismatic Purple—it’s impossible to miss!

LAMY AL-star in black purple

LAMY AL-star Fountain Pen - black purple

Now, we’ve arrived at my personal favorite: the LAMY AL-star in black purple. This pen holds a special place in my heart—it was my very first fountain pen. I started with the blue, but once I developed a taste for finer things, I couldn't resist the purple one! This shade of purple is uncommon and spectacularly gorgeous. It's the perfect blend of elegance and subtlety, fitting into any setting. The AL-star is as durable and reliable as the LAMY safari, but with the added luxury of those smooth, satiny aluminum finishes. 

TWSBI ECO in Transparent Purple

TWSBI ECO Fountain Pen - Transparent Purple

 Leaving the bias zone a bit, let's talk about a purple demonstrator that deserves your attention: the TWSBI ECO in Transparent Purple. This pen perfectly balances the desire for a deep purple fountain pen with the need for a clear view of your ink. The ECO’s design colors only the cap and piston knob, leaving the barrel clear, so you get a striking grape hue without losing any clarity. Transparent Purple is ideal for those who love purple but prefer just a splash of color rather than an entirely purple pen. It offers an impressive ink capacity and a fantastic cap that seals airtight, keeping your pen ready to write even after a long break.

TWSBI ECO Fountain Pen - Glow Purple

 If you’re into unique features, check out the Glow Purple version—it glows in the dark!

Pilot Décimo in Purple

Pilot Décimo Fountain Pen - Purple

To round off our list, I wanted to cover a lavender fountain pen—a challenge, but one I’m excited about! The Pilot Décimo in Purple immediately caught my eye. It's lighter and more comfortable than the Pilot Vanishing Point, with the same incredible 18k gold retractable nib.

However, choosing was tough when I saw the Platinum #3776 Nice Lavande. Its rose gold hardware and translucent resin are breathtaking, even if lavender isn’t usually your thing. If I had to pick based on looks alone, the Platinum would win, but the Décimo’s overall excellence makes it my top choice.

So, there you have it—my top five purple fountain pens! Each one brings its own unique flair to the table, offering something special for every purple pen lover out there. As always, if you have any questions, contact our knowledgeable Customer Care team. Have fun and write on!
