Ink Shot Review: Franklin-Christoph Tenebris Purpuratum @1901FC

Here is another really nice Franklin-Christoph ink: Tenebris Purpuratum. For some reason, it took me a long time to remember what this ink was actually called. Tricky thing. Gosh is it ever sexy.

CONS

  • Only available at Franklin-Christoph! I guess that's not a huge deal...
  • The eyedropper bottle is plastic. Some people prefer glass. I don't mind either way, and I find the eyedropper tip very useful! If you want to fill a converter, you just unscrew the tip and use it like a regular bottle! 

OVERALL

As with the Franklin-Christoph Midnight Emerald, the Tenebris Purpuratum is another hidden gem. It's a medium purple that has a dusky feel to it, which gives it a dark and mysterious touch. I really like that. It's an attractive color - not a bright popping purple, but definitely a purple. Very fair price for a great ink!

My favorite purple is usually Montblanc Lavender Purple, but I think this might take the cake.
