  1. I don't have many inks that are 'just' grey so I thought this one would be an interesting addition to my hoard collection. Also, I was curious about a grey colour in a series called 'chromatics'… In summary: Use this on absorbent papers, not Rhodia et al unless you are trying for a very specific look. With that caveat, this can be a useful ink for casual note taking and informal messages, even in an office setting. Your message will seem much less forceful than with a black ink, so consider it for situations where consensus-building is important, e.g. voluntary sectors. With a very wet writer (like the Platinum Century John Sorowka custom nib in the samples) you could absolutely use this for corporate signatures, especially, perhaps, if you want to subtly distance yourself from the message. Love letters seem unlikely. Review: Soak test: Rhodia No 18 dotpad again: Rhodia R paper: Stock 'cartridge' paper (apologies for the corporate branding! It was the only pad I had to hand!): Apologies again for corporate pad (but it is what I write most of my text on). (If you want to calibrate your monitor, the blue in the logo is Pantone Blue 072 U.) The Lamy nibs are both the Z50 steel nibs. Hope this is useful to someone.
  2. Hi folks, I'm really enjoying these ~ here's a quick scan of some swabs, on Tomoe River Paper, corrected for white balance. I definitely recommend sampling some! So far my favorite is Delicate Green Here's a video by Goulet Pens on its intro: http://youtu.be/YhOKZRc3lxA
