Good comparison much often talked about. Only when the two are next to each other is it plain enough. Apart from the darkness (blackness), the similarity is interesting, especially as far as price and availability are concerned!

Nice to see these inks presented side by side... great idea! Time to get a bottle of Lie de Thé and do a shoot-out.

To me, Lie de Thé is a bit more orange, while Smoky Quartz is more gray. Both wonderful inks.

Maybe it’s just my reality, but in my pens Lie de Thé is very red.

Lie de Thé is one of my favorites but Smoky doesnt excite me quite as much. Both well behaved though so color just comes down to personal preference.

I prefer Pelikan Edelstein Smoky (correct sp) Quartz as it comes in a bigger and much more user friendly bottle. The ink is a great colour and is also nicely saturated.  :wub:

I love Lie de Thé. It is my number one brown. I keep trying new ones browns, but I've not yet found anything to beat it.

Thank you for your ink comparison! It is in my opinion important to look thoroughly. I personally prefer Lie de thé.
