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.
