  1. Henlo!!!! I'm new here. I was wondering if any could point me towards some affordable pocket notebooks to write in that work well with fountain pen. I've heard of feild notes but I heard some of ya'll don't really like them.. also, bare with me, I don't really know how a forum works... Thanks!
  2. Hey all, we all love fountain pens and we all want to write with them. So at one point we need to find ourselves some nice paper. In my case I also wanted a nice notebook which contains the paper. Eventually I discovered the Midori Notebooks and loved them. Simple design but a very thought through, cool looking little system. The problem that I had was the price. I just did not want to (and shouldn't at the time) spend 50$ for a notebook. So I had the idea to google a little bit and see, if there were people who made their own versions of that Traveler's Notebook. And I was lucky. I found

    Best A5-Sized Notebook?

    Hi all, I've been sneakily reading the posts on this site for a while, but it's the first time I actually write a post (except for the FB page). I've been looking for the best notebook for journaling and such for some years now, and I figured I would share my experiences and disappointments, and hear about others' thoughts on this. I started using Moleskines (classic, large notebook, hardcover, black) way before I was using fountain pens. I had to switch to something else when I started using FPs due to heavy feathering and bleeding. (And in the case of MB toffee brown, discoloration.) But i
  4. I bought the beautiful montblanc notebook (#146). The cover is so luxurious that it'd be a waste to discard it once the notes are done .. Is there a way to repurpose the notebook with Tomoe river paper? I.e. purchase blank/lined TRP and bind the montblanc notebook with it?
  5. Hello, this is my first review of any kind here, I hope it's alright. Redbubble is a website where independent artists can upload their work and have it sold on t-shirts, bags, prints, phone cases, and various other things. You can find both fan-art and original art there. Of interest to me was their spiral notebooks. I wasn't expecting much since this is not a company that specializes in paper and writing products, but a couple of my friends sell art there, so I decided to check them out. The only info given about the notebook's paper was that it's 90gsm and came in a choice of ruled or gra
  6. This is just a quick assessment based on only having the notebook a few days. I purchased a Tul leather notebook from Office Depot after being disappointed with a low-end Levenger (Sliver) notebook that was more expensive (too flimsy). I checked ahead of time and the spacing on the discs was the same so I can use my Levenger punch when needed. The paper feels, to the touch, like it would be cheap and rough and tend to bleed but it is not and it does not. In the picture you can see a few inks and their nibs. If you look closely you can see some ghosting from the other side. That is the Emerau
  7. Big thanks for everyone in this forum for their suggestions and ideas regarding my Mega Monster Pocket Notebook review. I've now published the first review for the Story Supply Co. Edition 407 Pocket Notebook. I've also built out a main Mega Monster review page to aggregate basic data from all the reviews in this series, and I've put together a spreadsheet that will contain all the specs and performance findings for all notebooks in this series. Of course, there's only one in there right now...I'll be fleshing that out as I publish the other reviews. Here's the review for the Edition 407 Poc

Will you recommend it?

    Noodler's Bernanke Blue Issues?

    Hey everyone! I recently recieved a sample of the ink mentioned in the topic title. As a leftie, I have high hopes for this ink, but as soon as I started writing with it in my pen(a fine nibbed Pilot Metropolitan), I noticed it bled through the paper of the notebook I was using! Has anyone else experienced this? My other question is should I give up in wanting to use this ink? Thanks for any help you can provide, Rosendust!
  10. Hi all, new member here. Trying to play by the forum etiquette. I've read through some of the sticky topics but didn't really see my question answered so figured I'd give it a try. If I missed something I'm sorry, please let me know. Now for my question. For work, I currently use Moleskine Cahier XL notebooks. They're perfect in practically every way: soft, kraftlike cover; side bound; lays flat; not too expensive; their size. But, of course, the paper is not very fountain pen friendly. My issue with some alternatives are mainly that they tend to be thicker and hard covered, which writes a b
  11. I recently purchased a "traveler's notebook" (in quotes and not capitalized because it's not Traveler's brand... is there an accepted way to refer to these when they're not made by Midori or Traveler's Company?) that takes 3.5 x 5.5 inch notebooks. I have a Clairefontaine in there (which is spectacular) but I'd REALLY love some dot grid paper. Does anyone have any recommendations for a fountain pen friendly, dot grid, 3.5 x 5.5 inch notebook with a soft cover? Staples vs stitched binding doesn't matter to me but I don't want glue and I'd like it to be relatively small - the Clairefontaine h
  12. While perusing Badger and Blade yesterday (as it seems a number of us do), I found a running thread with this title and wondered if it could be adapted to FPs. So to break the ice, here's my starter for 10: Pen - Conway Stewart 58 - UK Ink - Pilot - Japan Paper - HP 32lb Letter - US (Yes, I did carry a ream back in hand luggage !) Notebook - Clairefontaine A5 - France Diary - W H Smiths mini leather A6 6-hole refillable - UK Is it a goer?
  13. I posted a couple of weeks ago about the Robert Oster ink exclusive that will be a part of the Hippo Noto Kickstarter campaign, because I was lucky enough to get a sample of it to test out. But I'm impatient because I'd really (really) like to try out the notebooks. I go through journals at a fast clip because mine are a way to capture what's going on in my life, the things occupying my brain, any data points I want to take note of, etc. etc. Anyway, I go through paper. Also because I love playing with inks (oh, those colors) and that takes paper. None shows off inks better than Tomoe River, a
  14. Is this notebook a real Moleskine? I found it in a newsagent and was able to get it for AU$2.90 (about US$2.20). It is a sewn 20 sheet, 40 leaf, 80 page Kraft-covered cahier. There is a simple pocket in the back cover. The paper is cream/beige, and after trying it with a number of pens and inks, it seems to be quite well behaved with inks. The pages are a narrow A5, being A5 in length, but almost 1 1/2 centimetres narrower. The notebook I got was plain, unlined, but I was able to print a guide sheet to A5 and then trim the long sides to fit. So far, the inks I have tried it on are —
  15. Hi All, First time posting on here. I have recently become fascinated with the fountain pen and paper realm. Curious if anyone has seen my dream notebook? !!WANTED!! B5 Threadbound Hardcover 90+ sheets FP Friendly paper (obvious no?) Dot Grid Multiple ribbons Numbered pages 81 - 100 gsm 10-20 perforated pages If not? How do I find a manufacturer to create this unicorn notebook? I appreciate all your advice in advance. Best, Oscar

    Mb 146 Notebooks

    Has anyone tried the new MB146 notebooks at all? Are they any good? I just noticed that the paper is 85 gsm - where I can get 100gsm for a fifth of the price. Is the paper any different than other stuff?
  18. Hi all: My job is often filled with details I can't remember so I want to get a notebook I can write things down in and hopefully, remember them. I have read good things about the Leuchtturm 1917 in the that is about 5 x 8. I saw them in a store tonight but they are in plastic so I was unable to feel the paper. Any thoughts on this brand of notebook? I tend to write with broad nibs and use Noodlers ink. I do not mind a touch of bleed through but I am hoping it is held to a minimum. Any opinions on this for a notebook to use to jot down ideas and things to get done? If you do not lik
  19. Alright, I've got a search challenge related to several practical limitations. I'm a hook handed lefty that has been using ef to med nib fountain pens for everything, but I've recently run into a problem where I can't find notebooks that fit my needs. The following preferences for the notebook are in order of relative necessity. The notebook has to be bound, glued, or otherwise spiral free (because spirals are murder). It has to be either grid or dot graph. Preferably 3 mm-4 mm I'm not opposed to it being a nonstandard graph such as isometric graph, because, why not. I have to be able to fi
  20. Hi everyone, I am new to the forum and was hoping you guys could help me out with a new found hobby. I've recently retaken up writing with fountain pens and now I want to jump into the world of binding my own notebooks, it's fun and I get something really nice at the end. I've done a test run of all of the paper I could get my hands on so far and my favorite is the 85 gsm bioprima paper found in the Fabriano EcoQua notebooks, the problem I am having is I dont' know where to get just the paper. The EcoQua notebooks seem to be everywhere online and in local art stores but I can't for the life
  21. Hi, I am currently a student in college. I would like to share this notebook that I recently bought. This is the MUJI Notebook B5 with 6mm ruling. http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0765.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/Front.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/Back.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0766.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0767.jpg http://i186.photobucket.com/albums/x187/sofia819/IMG_0769.jpg Pros: Relatively cheap, about $11-$12 for five notebooks right now. However, I bough

  23. Hi guys, I'm looking for paper that is lined and could be classified as "school use". My only complain with my current composition books is that they bleed and feather the heck out of me. It didn't originally bother me, but eventually it got so bad that I went back to ballpoints for a while. Another major concern is that I'm not a fancy person, I go through paper very quickly so I don't want to get the expensive paper like Rhodia or some other fancy brand. So any suggestions?
  24. I have been wanting to try out bullet journaling for a while so I went and did some research on which notebook people recommended, the Leuchtturm 1917 hardcover came up constantly. I figured if people were recommending this notebook that it must be good right? (Btw even people using fountain pens were recommending this) So I bought one for $20 (which is a good amount of money for someone in college btw) and couldn't wait to start writing in it. The notebook itself seems great but as soon as I started writing in it I was immediately disappointed in the paper quality. I was getting bleed throu
  25. Pretty much anyone in the UK over a certain age will have memories of the classic red covered Silvine exercise books, or the ubiquitous memo book. I'm still fond of the latter now for its fountain pen-friendly paper, if not for its rather flimsy cover, so was interested to come across the recent launch of a high quality re-tread of these old favourites. http://www.silvineoriginals.co.uk/ Lots of sizzle going on there, but what's the steak like? I emailed them to ask after the FP-friendliness and was assured they were "very happy" with fountain pen ink, so naturally I wanted to try one. And
