This brush is more a light black color rather than a gray because the color is slightly transparent. That is, it's not a black color mixed with white to create gray, but rather a more diluted black color. Take a close look at the following picture to see how the black color of the Pentel Standard Brush pen shows up against the Pentel Aquash Watercolor Brush.
The body of the Pentel Aquash Watercolor brush is also shorter and more ergonomically shaped than the Pentel Standard brush line. With the cap on, this brush measures 15.5 cm (6.10 inches) while the Pentel Standard brush measures 17.5 cm (6.89 inches) with the cap on.

Finally a brush that...
Finally a brush that is water proof and grey ink color. It is not one of those regular Pentel brushes that is not waterproof but I took a risk and I'm glad I did.
This brush is hard to find on Jetpens site as it is located under watercolors. I think it should be separate or together with Pentel Pocket brush which is also waterproof.
So now we have a grey waterproof color brush that can compliment the Pocket Pentel brush (or other waterproof brush).

Love love LOVE this brush...
Love love LOVE this brush pen. The ink is a little too dark for my liking but it lightens up a bit. The lighter of the two ink washes in this photo was made by this pen: http://instagram.com/p/wU9KWuHYpm/?modal=true

I use this constantly...
I use this constantly with the standard Pentel brush pen. The tip has held up beautifully through heavy use, and can be used for fine details as well as large washes. When shading large spaces, it can start to look a little rough and patchy even when you work fast, but that's a minor issue. It can run VERY wet if you give the body a good squeeze, to the point where I can use it for splatter if I want to. A plus for my uses, but be cautious of it! I recommend using it on smooth paper for a clean line, as it tends to skip on textured paper. It WILL bleed through most stuff! Use it judiciously or on heavier, watercolour-grade paper.
