Noodler's Lexington Gray Ink
Noodler's Lexington Gray Ink has a really beautiful shade of gray. It has a good degree of intensity to it, not looking washed out but still retains a cool feel to the colour. We think its the best gray ink on the market.
Battleship gray" was named for the particular shade of gray paint used to rustproof steel battleships - a practice that began in the Royal Navy. The paint gets its color from micaceous iron oxide, a sparkly iron ore comprised of millions of tiny rustproof flakes. Curiously, the same iron oxide was first mined to produce pounce" - the sandy power used during the 18th and 19th centuries to help quickly dry writing ink. Fortunately, you wont need any pounce to deal with Lexington Gray, as its a very well-behaved ink.
Lexington Gray exhibits a good degree of shading for an ink with such a high degree of saturation. Its not a high-shading ink, but theres enough variation to make things interesting, even in a fine-nib pen. Its easy to read on a variety of paper colors and types, from white to cream to yellow post-it notes. A smooth-writing ink, we think this is good enough to use as an everyda writing ink as well.
Lexington Grey is a bulletproof ink. It is U.V. and bleach resistant. It is forgery resistant, impervious to lasers, alcohols and solvents. This is a waterproof ink.
