Pale and dreamy

Old Man Winter dries into a very pale bluish grey. Not slate exactly, but rather slate if you mixed some clouds in. It's not at all dark and saturated, so if that's what you're looking for, avoid. I hate the standard blues availiable in cartridges (including turquoise, but exepting Lamy Petrol, which I rather like), so this kind of unusual shade is ideal for me as someone who writes a lot by hand and craves variety. I love the line of Pilot Iroshizuku inks in general. I will definitely be repurchasing this one.

Nice Ink, Not Sure About the Color

Used in a Wahl Grecian Key with a wet noodle nib. Very well behaved, no feathering, no bleed through, handled the flex like a champ. It doesn't have shading, which sort of defeats the purpose of flex. The color in my cheap composition notebook is pewter, a grey with a hint of brown, rather than the bluish grey I see on my monitor. But it could be the monitor or cheap paper.
