Violet – St Dupont

St Dupont Paris is a brand name and manufacturer of lighters, collectible pens, handbags, perfumes (produced under license by Interparfums) and other gadgets using the trademark diamond-head pattern. The company has been producing luxury items since its founding in 1872. The founder of the brand, Simon Tissot-Dupont, was born in Savoy in 1847 – the company owes its initials to him. It seems at the moment they offer only two inks in bottle (black and blue) and two more in cartridges. SOme time ago their inky offer was wider and counted 5 inks:

  1. Bleu
  2. Bleu Ciel
  3. Noir
  4. Sienne
  5. Turquoise

Michael R. sent me samples of few (dozens) inks, St Dupont among others.

Violet was stunning ink. I’m not sure if the one sold currently in the cartridges looks familiar. ANyway the ink has great flow, nice lubrication and is quite water resistant.

  1. I agree. This color is stunning. Sadly they left only boring blue and black in the bottles and discontinued Siena and Violet that were quite remarkable. It seems Violet is available in cartridges but I’m not sure if it’s sthe same ink – I haven’t tried it.
