Thoughts 

I have had this ink for a few weeks now and I still can’t make my mind up wether I actually like it or not. Something about the colour really appeals to me with regards to its shading properties.  You start off with a light grey that you can shade into a really nice deep grey.  This actually can be even noticed while writing, parts of my letters have a light shade whereas other parts a darker shade.

I do think it has potential to become a everyday ink and I am planning to load it into one of my daily carries and give it an extended run.  One slight area of concern for me is the drying times.  It does seem to take a decent length of time to dry which might put people off using this as an everyday ink.  Even at the twenty seconds mark this ink still smudged a little.

Grey might actually have potential to become my everyday ink as this colour just seems to click with my tastes in ink colour.  I’m just unsure if Diamine’s Grey is it due to the long drying times. Is there a grey ink out there that you would recommend to me?
