Default keeping the black - black

I have to ask, how have you been able to keep your black - a true black. I have played with the white balance, and even calibrated my Nikon d70 to customize the white balance. If I toy with the hue or contrast with photoshop, I start to lose detail, if I make the blacks, a darker black.

I really like your photo of the CZ, it seems to have captured the true black (blue steel, I should say).

The following below was done with one medium size softbox above, and a small kicker light to the right. Pretty much all of my samples have that purple tinge, that drives me crazy.
