The Chu-su is a beautiful gray, but it has purple overtones.

Oh the standard Sailor inks available in the US, Chu-shu from the Four Seasons line is a gray leaning to purple. Some swabs/samples online show it as a dark purple, but I didn't find that to be the case. visvamitra's review identifies it as a gray, likewise Lgsoltek, who also has comparisons with other gray inks.


Might want to consider getting a sample.

SAILOR also makes "Melancholic Gray" for Bungu Box; available @ VANNESS PENS, currently reduced price, $37.00 from regular $43.00 & also 4 ML sample @ $5.00.


I don't really need more than my first bottle of MB's 90th Anniversary, Permanent Grey or GVFC's Stone Grey & suspect I will die with more in each bottle than other colors.  I do like ChuShu, but don't really think of it as "grey," merely  "an interesting ink."

Hatobanezu from Maruzen is also a Gray and I'm sure one of the Kobe Inks is gray...
also one of the inks from Pen and Message is gray Fuyu-gare
