Hi, 

 

This is my first post here though I have been reading a lot of reviews and talks as I was bed stricken the last months. I'm a stationery lover and this is my video review of the X17 which in my opinion is one deal of a notebook since it has both the advantages of the Midori leather notebook and the comfort of your regular A5 notebook. 

 

Paper is not very fountain pen friendly but there is no showthrough, it is just that I like my pages smooth. The notebook itself though is gorgeous. 

 

Here is the link to the video since I don't know how to put it there : https://www.youtube....h?v=54ehCgOsbO4

 

I hope you'll like it as much as I did. 

 

Also I love the fact that they are a small family size company. 

 

John

Hi there and welcome. :thumbup:  I like the look of the cover but if the paper is not very FP friendly, what would you use/what would fit instead?

Well, I have found it can be FP friendly depending on what pen I use, especially because I don't mind showthrough in my daily planner so I definitely use this as my daily planner because the leather is just gorgeous.
