Stipula Calamo Dark Grey is in between Prismacolor Premier French Grey #1074 in the darker tones and to Warm Grey #1054 in the lighter tones. It is similar to Montblanc Oyster Grey... view more, but closer to Pilot Iroshizuku Kiri-Same: to my eye, it shares a brownish component like the latter. Unlike Kiri-Same which I have found to feather on some papers, Dark Grey is well behaved on the ones I’ve used. Even if it’s a nice colour, I find it too pale for note-taking or corrections. I would use this ink for short notes once it had the chance to evaporate from a pen with subpar seals. Stipula Fading Grey is slightly bluer and less saturated than its brother. view less
