Thank you! On my monitor they still look close-maybe it's time to re calibrate my monitor.  I appreciate you posting this!

 

ETA ok after calibration I can see a tiny slight difference but it's pretty subtle.

No need to adjust your monitor... or your eyes.   They are close, and it mainly depends on the nib and paper you use.   You will see the most difference on absorbent paper and finer/drier nibs (SPP is more saturated)...  But with a nice wet nib and good paper.. they will be both very close.

 

Sheen wise...SPP is a sheen monster, if you don't particularly care about that... Go for Kobe.
