Kaweco Smokey Grey is fountain pen ink of a light but legible gray color. The color is true gray without blue or brown undertones. It is somewhat similar to the color of a HB (number 2) pencil.
This is well behaved, quick drying ink. Shades well in any nibs. However, for better legibility, the broader and wetter nibs could be recommended. To top it off, Smokey Grey has some basic water-resistance. So if you accidentally spill a glass of water over the page, your writing won’t be lost.
As all other Kaweco inks, Smokey Grey comes in a classically shaped 30 ml glass bottle which could be tilted on its sloped side to help with filling a pen when the ink level will run too low to fill it straight. It also available as a 2.5ml ink sample.
