De Atramentis Document Ink - Fog Grey (35ml Bottled Ink) is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 16.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Blue Black, not grey. Too wet. Bleeds a lot. Like the other document inks, once this is dry, it's not going anywhere, which is a great feature. Unfortunately unlike the other document inks I've tried so far, it bleeds a lot and writes way too wet. It might work better with an extra fine nib. I tried it in a Lamy fine. It's also not really grey. I would categorize it as a blue-black. It's not a bad color at all; quite the contrary, it's rather attractive. But it's definitely not grey. I'm glad I tried this in a sample first because this isn't what I was hoping for. If you're looking for a very waterproof blue-black, and don't mind a really wet ink, then maybe this one will work for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Deep Iridium Grey In my personal correspondence, and in my professional work (high school science teacher), I can get away with indulging my penchant for color. Every now and then, even I need a sober, impeccably professional, suit-and-tie ink (for instance, for finally getting the divorce papers signed, or submitting a grant proposal). This ink is darker than the swab and the name suggest, but is by no means boring. On good paper (Circa or Arc white, for instance, or most check stock) a 1.1 stub nib puts down a generous, wet, saturated line with just a hint of shading. Feathering and bleed are minimal-to-nonexistent. I do not hesitate to recommend this ink to anyone looking for a dependable "formal" color.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super waterproof The colour of this ink is lovely - grey with a blue-ish cast, depending on the paper. Writing in my Lamy Safari and in my Pilot Kakuno feels great. It does quite well on most paper, including a cheap lined pad at work, but there are a couple where it feathered and bled like crazy. It also did not play well in my Nib Creaper... It is fantastically waterproof. Tried a couple different papers, and left them under the tap for more than a minute - it did not budge. Overall, I'm really pleased with it, and no regrets for buying a bottle without sampling first!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Blue Kind of Gray Although the ink's name doesn't reflect it's color (to me, anyway), it is a nice find. A deep, dusky, blue-black-gray with all of the attributes of a document ink is always welcome - I draw with pen & ink, and am always looking for new, light-fast colors to work with. This ink fits the bill for me - it will definitely be incorporated it into my stash of drawing inks. Thanks, excellent folks at Goulet!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous. This ink is gorgeous for correspondence. I'm using it in a Lamy Al-Star, with a 1.1 nib, and it makes me want to write letters all the time. It's just off of blue and much more interesting than black. I love that I can write the address on the outside of the envelope in this ink and not have to worry about the rain rendering it unreadable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Too wet for me Holds up very well to water, I didn't see any smudging. Nice colour too, initially a darker blue-gray which gets lighter as it dries - which it does fairly quickly. It's a bit wet, like the only other De Atramentis ink I've tried (Aubergine) which made it bleed through in my journal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Fog Grey and DArk Blue are almost identical; NOT grey I love document inks -- mostly for sketching, they are amazing colors and truly waterproof except on the rare paper. This grey, however, is NOT grey -- it is very very blue, not like the color shown.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice for sketching. A blue-grey. Really nice for sketching. Dries fast, and doesn't wash away under watercolor.
