12 Reasons We Love to Write With Gray Fountain Pen Ink

Stormy Grey Fountain Pen Ink is the latest addition to J. Herbin’s 1670 Anniversary Ink collection. The deep coal gray (anthracite) color with flecks of gold was inspired by J. Herbin sailing the stormy seas, encountering dark and wild oceans. The fine golden flecks in the ink are meant to invoke both strikes of lightening across the water, and also its dark and mysterious depths.

  1. I love Noodler’s Lexington Gray. It’s waterproof, flows well, never clogs my pens, and I’m using it today at work. If I use it in my sketchbook, I can use watercolor over the sketch without smearing. A great ink.
