    Neither of these brands either, I fear.

    Neither Kaweco nor Akkerman.

    One guess has been quite a bit warmer than the others, if that's any help. But it's probably not.

    It might actually help if you said which guess.

    It would indeed, but then I suspect things might be all over rather soon afterwards.

    Ah no, not Faber Castell either.

    It used to be an effort-to-get ink, but in the last year or maybe two, its become more accessible to English speakers.

    *Looks at sample, looks at Grey Plum* Huh?! Anyway, it's not KWZ.

    When wet, this ink looks darker and perhaps a bit bluer.

    Didn't know that one; looks rather nice.

    But this ink is not Italian.

    Nope. Definitely not.

    I would think Abraxas would be generally considered fairly obscure in comparison to the brand of the mystery ink.

    Hmm Im runnning out of ideas.

    Initially I thought it must be a smaller German manufacturer, as you said: an European brand, it is not Italian, not KWZ and not globally available.

    Cant be Pelikan, Rohrer&Klingner, Lamy, Parker or Waterman as globally available, and Im not aware of any such Grey produced by them.
    Also not Super5, Seitz Kreuznach, Octopus or Lindauer, because they also have not such a Grey.
    Also not one of the Italians,Montblanc,Kaweco , Abraxas or KWZ.
    Not De Atramentis, not Herbin, not Akkerman and also not Diamine.

    Not Monteverde or Sheaffer, made in Europe but not a European brand.

    Some obscure in-crowd inks are not possible because of the well known requirement.

    What puzzles me is the well known combined with not easy globally available......

    I think I do not know this ink Manufacturer.... maybe somebody else has still some ideas.

    Having read your list, I concur - you don't apparently know the manufacturer.

    There's quite a large European country between Austria and, say, Spain. Or Britain. You might look there.
