Hello, I recently made a post earlier, but I think I might have put it in the wrong section. I have moved to Aachen, Germany and am dipping my feet into fountain pens. I have acquired a Fabri Castel writink with a B nib, and am in the process of looking for quality paper to use for it. Cost is negligible, I would rather gather my options now and narrow them later. I was advised that: Clairfontaine would be an excellent paper to choose from, but I was wondering if there were any others people had in mind? I'm thinking specifically German and European manufactures that are not easily obtained in the U.S. (as well as some options that might be).

 

Thanks!

If you are looking fr german brands, you have Rössler that makes several kinds of paper sold in pads: Royal C6, Endelbütten (handmade paper), Edelleinen (linen made), Paperando, Inspiration. You can find some of these at Seitz-Kreunach.

 

In what copy paper is concerned, you have Gohrsmühle.

 

These are the only one I know.

Loose leaf paper:

 

Colorcopy 90 g/m2, uncoated laserprint version, about 6,5-8 EUR per 500 sheet ream. Very smooth, handles very wet nibs well.

PAPYRUS AG Rainbow-coloured 80 gsm paper, chamois or cream. Like 7,5-9 EUR per 500 sheet ream.

 

I use document ink exclusively and like both of them.


There´s no great matter about things in your hands.
Important is, how can you use them.
