    Oh wow. I'll have to check some old notebooks, see if I'll find gray and not deep, shiny black.

    No problem. I was surprised by what I saw (Rhodia pad paper), so I thought that I would report it. Maybe it was my pen, or sample, or something.

    Just checked back six years in my What's Inked log, coincidently also Rhodia pad made into a notebook, and my PCB looks black enough. Maybe a bit less shiny, but I'm hardly the person to judge given I hadn't noticed its shininess in the first place! The Perle Noir sitting next to one of the entries is, I would say, blacker, but where it's shaded understandably greyer. Were it to get wet, of course, results would differ greatly, but I'm not putting my log under the tap just now.
    In the words of Paul Simon, you can call me Al.
