De Atramentis Charles Dickens (35ml) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from This ink has grown on me When I first inked my Pilot Birdie with this color, I was not convinced. The pen has a very fine nib, and while the color was well saturated and flowed beautiful, it was just gray. What did I need a gray ink for? But after a couple of days, I found there are many things in a day that I love this for. The ink looks almost like a lead pencil, but without the smearing. I adore it, and in my fine-nibbed pens, I can write on even the cheapest copy paper without even a hint of ghosting. This pen is going to be inked with this color for a very long time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not entirely gray I didn't actually buy this; the Goulets sent me a sample vial. I used the whole thing to eyedropper fill a Kaweco Sport. This ink is described as a gray, but to me it has a noticeable dull greenish tinge, at least if you look at it closely under a strong light. It could certainly pass for gray on a brief glance. Either way, it's very subdued, just dark enough to be easily legible. Supposedly this is not water resistant, but I always test inks to see how they will do. I found this one actually to be quite water resistant with my usual soaking in the sink test, and it didn't run when drying out either. Didn't try it with chemicals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite grey I received a sample of this ink in an Ink Drop, tried it, and immediately ordered a bottle. It is my favorite grey, and one of my top ten inks. It lays down wet, but doesn't spread. Drying time relatively quick. There is little to no ghosting, and no bleeding. If you like greys, buy this. You will not regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Soft yet Full I ordered a sample of it and am about to buy an entire bottle. At first, I saw a greenish tint, but as it dries, it really does turn into a concrete grey. It works well with my Parker Sonnet italic nib and looks beautiful on fine paper. Doesn't bleed, dries quickly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grey with a green tint I was looking for this coulor. I love grey inks but, this is a particular favorite because of its green tint. It is subtly unique. I use it in my Sailor Professional Gear Imperial Black.
