    Thanks for posting this. It looks like a nice grey. Use it anywhere you like.

    I love this ink. It's like liquid pencil.

    It's my favorite grey - but I use it only in broader nibs, because to my eye this (and other grey inks I've tried) seem a little anaemic when applied with fine nibs.

    I would agree that it's a bit anemic in anything less than a medium, and a medium is pushing it. But I've used Noodler's Lexington Gray in finer nibs and it looks great. It just doesn't have the really neat purple undertones that this one has.

    You're welcome! It is a fun gray, but the only place I wouldn't use it is for markup, as it's a bit tough to see against black printer ink.

    I really enjoy this ink too. I love the color, but it also makes one of my scratchier nibs write very smoothly. Thanks for including your review here.
    Beware of oblique conclusions.
