Notes:
 
- Regarding the model letter designations of the Jinhao 599 foutain pens, I know that there's no real consistency, agreement or official source for which models corresponds to which types, so for the purposes of this test they'll follow my understanding of them.  And my understanding is that the Jinhao 599A is the metal version with the Lamy-style wrap-around nib (fine), the Jinhao 599B is the solid-color plastic version that comes in both a standard No.5 Jinhao nib (medium) or a hooded nib (extra-fine), and the Jinhao 599C is the transparent demonstrator version of the 599B.
 
- Regarding ink names and my choice whether to list them by their original language name or under their English translation, I follow the following three rules: (1) where the name is translated into English for Enlish-only packaging (eg. De Atramentis, Pilot, Graf von Faber-Castell) I'll use that name, so Graf von Faber-Castell 141002 is Hazelnut Brown not Haselnussbraun; (2) where packaging offers multiple translations (eg. Pelikan, Waterman, Rohrer & Klingner) I will use the one listed first or most prominently, so Rohrer & Klingner 40-530-050 is Alt-Goldgrün not Old Golden Green; and (3) where there is no name at all on the packaging (eg. Lamy, Stipula, Kaweco, Sailor) I'll use whatever the English-language website says its name is, so Kaweco 10000677 is Summer Purple not Sommer Lila.

Thanks!  It's always good to hear that others enjoy what I post here and find it useful.  I'll have a new round up soon.  I just need to find the time to scan the pages and crunch the numbers.

Considering how light weight the Cambridge paper is, it did really well in all but one test.

Cambridge paper never ceases to surprise me, though I should be well used to it by now.  Of the notebooks I chose to test it's the one I had the least interest in including at the outset.  It and the Five Star I added at the end to get the number up to ten.  I'm really glad I took a chance on using it for this.
