On all papers there is an A and B side...............on typewriter papers there is a A and a F side..........they only coated one side of typewriter papers. Only typed on one side.
As far as I can tell, both sides do a good enough job....one can write on the back if the bleed through is not too bad.
- Black n Red, or any Oxford/(Campus?)/Optik paper.
Clairefontaine 90g Velout` is one of some 30 or so inks better than the Oxford Optic 90g.
I have both in a spiral notebook and am happy with them.
Oxford Optic is also available in Spain.
I do strive to get some good to better paper with every three inks................somehow I've managed to avoid Rhoda and Clairefontaine Triumph...... ....Stupid thinks like pens show up.
As often as not I end up chasing some heavy paper....Don't have Verge` de France in 90g....have it in 160.
Gmund Beige Blanc, 170g is almost perfect....cost me quite a bit....yacht paper....if you got to ask, you can't afford it. The 120G of the same is perfect. I liked the feeling of the heavy paper more.....next time...well at E40 not counting postage....I'll have to buy a smaller yacht.
Well all 100-50% cotton will not shade well........not even the 125 g Velin pur Coton.....and "knowing better" don't know why I ended up with three packages of it. And none of 90g.
The M&K papers...three of them are good. (typewriter paper is 95G).......and mailing from Germany is not expensive to England right now..................Do Not Buy any other Brunner papers.....had my printer not been old and on it's last legs....I'd shoved the 120g Buetten paper with ( 'deckle-edged/patterned edge ) into the printer and I expect Butten paper to be good..... ....

Due to Mauricio's improved definition of Super-flex, I try not use the term Easy Full Flex, but fail...sigh.
Semi-flex is an “almost” flex; not a ‘flex’ nib. It is great for regular writing with a touch of flair. It can give you some fancy; but it is not made for real fancy writing. For bit more of that get a maxi-semi-flex. Both spread tines 3X. Those are not "Flex" nibs.
Wider than Normal does not exist. Wider than Japanese does. Every company has it's very own standard + slop/tolerance. Developed from the users of it's pens and inks only; not the users or inks of other companies pens. The size you grind a nib to, is your standard only. Paper and ink matter to nib width. Thank god for 1/2 sizes or it would be boring.
