    I don't think they did.

    But they'd have been wrong...

    OK, then I won't guess it either.

    Nope.
    This is a fairly new ink.

    Both the brand and the name could very much be linked to water That may be too subtle a clue, I'll elaborate further if necessary...

    It is Grey Frog - and I really like it. I will definitely be adding some more of these, and may even get a handful of dedicated pens for them.

    Congratulations PP - the floor is yours.

    I should have guessed this one before. The water clue was definitely a clincher, though.

    There's a handful of those inks I'd like to get as well!

    @yazeh, I think you'll really like these. They come in dinky little 10ml bottles as well as the bigger ones, which is just the right size to play with and not get bored! I've not been a huge fan of Octopus Fluids before, but I'm very impressed with this range so far.

    I got these from Papier und Stift, but Cult now have some nice little six packs, which are decent value IMO.

    More soft color. The soft brown at the top is my last mystery ink, L'Artisan Pastellier Classique Marron, and I am continuing Tai Tham practice with the new mystery ink. Japanese or Chinese (?) calligraphy brush and an early rare Platinum 3776 F I received a few days ago on the back of Life Manuscript paper with LED lighting. The white balance is off - the paper is not so grey and much more white - but I think the ink's color is well represented. (Bit of a wooly line with the pen in the macro shot but it's not noticeable to my eye.)

    I see only one review online - the review gets the name partially incorrect (and the ink's color mostly looks more grey than mine) so I will take the name used in that review as well as the real name.

    I love this color! While it's not complex it's calm, super easy on the eyes, and shades nicely.
