We are almost done with grey week, and today's grey is Diamine Silver Fox, from the 150th Anniversary Collection. I bought this bottle from Cult Pens shortly after I got into fountain pens.
Silver Fox is a lovely cool-tone light grey.
In large swabs the ink does show different shades of grey, but no sheen.
Let's take a look at how the ink behaves on fountain pen friendly papers: Rhodia, Tomoe River, and Leuchtturm.
Dry time: 30 seconds.
Water resistance: Medium-some ink washed away but you might still be able to read what is written.
Show through: Medium
On Staples 24 lb copy paper there was some feathering in most nib sizes but no bleeding.
I used a medium Kaweco Al-sport Red on Tomoe River paper. The ink had an average flow.
Overall, this is one of my favorite grey inks. I love the color, and the shading is great. It can be a bit light in the smaller nib sizes, but I mostly use nibs larger than medium so I've never had a problem with how light it can be.
