Last week I received a pen that I had waited for a long time, a Noodler's Konrad Ebonite, and in the same parcel an ink I had wanted to test for a long time : Noodler's Lexington Gray.
I wanted to test both of them, so I loaded the Konrad with the Lexington and I began to write. The ebonite Konrad was wonderful, but I will review it another day, because today is the Lexington Gray that is reviewed.
It's a nice ink, really nice. The color reminds me of graphite pencil's color, it almost looks like pencil on paper. t's easy on eyes, less aggressive that a black, less bright than a blue and more original than a blue-black. An ink I think I will use a lot for daily note taking.
I was rather surprised by the ultra fast dry time, and by the good behaviour of this ink on almost any paper, specially on cheap paper. It's a great ink : bulletproof, fast drying, well behaved in any paper and a nice color, what else could you want?
As usual, I've also posted the review on my fountain pen blog.
