I really love the color gray (although I prefer to spell it grey). It's a great neutral that can help highlight other colors. I usually pair gray with other colors. Organics Studio Arsenic Gray is a really good neutral gray, from the Elements ink collection. I got my bottle of ink from Pen Chalet.
Arsenic Gray comes in 55 ml bottles, made in Maryland.

Pilot Iroshizuku Kiri-same, Pilot Iroshizuku Fuyu-syogun, and Diamine Silver Fox. All three of these inks are a lot lighter than Arsenic Gray. To see the gray ink swabs together, click here.
Longer writing: First I used a Pilot 912 FA on Tomoe River paper, and noticed just a bit of railroading. Next I used a Pilot Vanishing Point broad nib, again on Tomoe River paper.
Overall, I really do like this ink. It's a nice neutral gray with medium shading. I think it's one I will use often, so I'm glad I have a full bottle.
