An 80ml bottle of Diamine Monboddo's Hat ink. Diamine Monboddo's Hat is a deep purple color.
Lord Monbodda was a Scottish writer who delved into evolutionary theory while teaching orang-utans to play the flute. As far as we know, the latter-day purple ink enthusiast who goes by the nom-de-plume of Scribble Monboddo may or may not be a distant relation - but he definitely has a top hat in this spendid colour, a mid-purple veering towards the blue with a feint yellow sheen. The Fountain Pens UK community on Facebook selected this as one of their two choices from ten Diamine prototypes, in an exercise co-ordinated by Bernardo Gomes. The ink is recommended for fountain pens which naturally run wet.
