  1. My question is whether the combination of ink and paper have an effect on how the nibs, especially the really wide ones, perform? I am relatively new to the world of Montblanc oblique nibs. My OBBB in the 149 is my newest acquisition. After it returned from the nib swap, I filled it with what I had in the office, which was a single bottle of Organic Studios Join or Die sepia. It performed beautifully. I had absolutely no problems and the pen would write at the drop of a hat. Yes I had to make sure I held it at the right angle but it was not particularly finicky, and would write easily. I use
  2. Can someone compare the dot grid on the Rhodia Dotpad No. 16 vs the dot grid on the Leuchtturm journals. Are the dot grids the same? Are the dots lighter or darker on one of them? Thanks.
  3. So I've been really struggling with finding a journal that works well for both me, and my fountain pens. Perhaps I'm being too picky, but I'm looking for a journal with the following characteristics: Lined Pages, 7mm or greater - For a journal, I need lines. And if the lines are too narrow I find I start to write very small and illegibly.A5 format - give or take. It needs to be large enough to write comfortably, and small enough to carry with me.Paper that won't bleed through. I don't mind some shadowing on the back, in fact, I find I somewhat appreciate it. Relatively white paperDurable
  4. For all you Australian readers out there (in case you didn't know this already!), I dropped in on my nearest Office Works store today (Wollongong NSW) and was amazed to discover that they had a reasonable selection of Rhodia and Clairefontaine notepads - at prices comparable to the online stores I've purchased them from before, but obviously minus the delivery costs and the delay in arrival from interstate... The checkout guy told me (in answer to my query) that these were a new entry in the system, but no indication that it's a short-term thing. So long as we make it worth their while to main
  5. So I thought I'd compare my newly purchased (for GBP 12) Ciak Paperchase and the Rhodia Webbie we all already know and love. Firstly is the Ciak Paperchase. I believe this is the new Ciak paper which is now dubbed environmental friendly as it is acid free (personally never read much into the whole environmental issues behind acid containing paper). I was initially hesitant to get it as I had at a time held a sample of the old Ciak paper, which we would recall was slightly toothy, fibrous, but oddly had a strange charm and texture to it. I never did manage to find another copy of the
  6. I've been wanting to get a fountain pen for a number of years, but never really got around to it. I decided to go ahead and take the plunge starting with a few Lamy pens and some Iroshizuku ink. While I was at it, I figured I'd take a few pictures of my humble beginnings into the world of fountain pens. My Lamy 2000 and some ink. Rhodia Webnotebook with my Lamy pens. Nomadic PD-03 pen case from Jetpens. Currently carrying my Lamy pens as well as a few Pilot V5's and Pigma Micron pens. It even stands up!
  7. I purchased the large-size Webbie back in March. I’ve been hesitating to do a review because I just wasn’t sure what my final verdict was going to be, but now I think I know. In case you’ve been living under a rock or something, here’s a brief overview of the Webbie: Made by RhodiaContains 90g creamy Clairefontaine paperSewn binding, all encased in a soft-to-the-touch leatherette coverIncludes a ribbon bookmark and elastic closureAvailable in lined, dot-grid, and blankThis size sells for $22+ online, depending on retailer (I bought mine for $25 from Goulet Pens)That’s the infamous Webbi
  8. Hi, I'm using mostly Clairefontaine notebooks for basically everything I write - 90g/m2 , white, very smooth and beautiful for fountain pens. With the large majority of my pens and inks I get no bleedthrough or feathering on this paper. Because I wanted something with a hard cover, which Clairefontaine don't seem to have in A4 size, I've acquired a Rhodia "webbie", which states to be using Clairefontaine paper, 90g/m2, but ivory instead of white. Both papers feel exactly the same and I feel no difference while writing. However, with a MB 146 M inked with J Herbin Bleu Ocean, on the Rhodia

    Why Rhodia?

    Rhodia seems to be very popular with fountain pen users, but my experience with it has been less than stellar. It makes even my Pelikans skip a bit, and my cheap Chinese pens don't get along with that paper at all. So why is Rhodia so popular with the fountain pen crowd? Are people using pens that don't skip on it (if so, which pens?), or is it that people like smooth paper so much that they are willing to overlook the fact that it induces skipping?
  10. Folks, I did a search and found a lot of information on the Rhodia Webnotebook, except the answer to the question that started my search: Why is it called a "Webnotebook?" What exactly does that mean? Thanks for any insights anyone cares to share. Ben
  11. Intro: Last year, since the timing was right with and order from Goulet Pens, I tried a Rhodia Weekly planner with a grid. Up until then, I was using Moleskines that I bought from the local bookstore. I liked Rhodia pads, and I really liked the grid layout and hard-backed planner. I was very happy with my purchase. Unfortunately, I forgot to use my planner to order the next year's planner, and January arrived without a new agenda. So Rhodia: Nice feel, good build, excellent, fountain pen-friendly paper. Since January showed up and I was unprepared, I went down to the bookstore and boug
  12. I'm not getting very far in my quest to find the ideal plain laser paper suitable for use with a fountain pen! I know that rhodia is a coated paper, and that this coating is what gives it, its great properties when used with aqueous ink used in fountain pens. It never feather or bleeds through, even with my wettest nibs like the Visconti Homo sapiens stub. I realised that most colour laser papers are also coated but most seem to pale into insignificance when compared to rhodia paper. I've tried HP colour laser, staples laser, conqueror super smooth and conquerer bamboo, and mondi colour lase
  13. I decided that I would go through all of my paper and make a big review post. For me as usual I feel the most important part are the visuals which I will embed though the post, but are also all in my gallery here: Gallery The whole post is a little photo heavy and all of them you can click through to a larger photo on the blog. I ran out of steam as I was typing this up so I have not at this point added written commentary on feathering or a couple other attributes though you should get some idea from the photos. Eventually it might also be nice to get scans of all of them, but that would defi
  14. Hi all, Artyfect, an online art supplies shop with a modest line in Rhodia pads, is discounting heavily at the moment. I'd indulge but my paper cupboard is full to the burping-point. Therefore it's churlish not to share... http://www.artyfect.com (No affiliation etc) All the best, David H

    A5 Or Semi-B5 For College?

    Would A5 or semi-B5 paper be better for note taking? I checked out the Kokuyo Systemic refillable notebook cover and they seem really great. But they only come in 2 sizes. I feel like it would be good to get the A5 size because there are more notebooks in that size available, whereas the semi-B5 notebooks are a bit more difficult to find. But, I feel like I would go through A5 notebooks really fast. I want the Systemic because I would be able to fit 3 notebooks in it and I wouldn't have to really worry about anything getting torn up too bad, but if there is a similar product, please share!
  16. Almost done with my Ecosystem journal, and I'm looking for something a bit nicer to continue. I'm debating between a Large Leuchtturm and a Large Rhodia Webnotebook. I'm looking at blank paper, and this new notebook needs to be of the best FP friendly paper I can get, and it needs to be able to handle flex nibs with minimal ghosting/show-through, also needs to open flat. Opinions? Anyone happen to have experience with both and would be willing to share your thoughts? Thanks in advance!
  17. Has anybody tried either the Clairefontaine or Rhodia 3 hole punch notebooks? I want to get some good loose leaf paper - not the stuff that you can practically see through whatever you are looking at. I have some from last year and it bleeds through like it's nobody's business. Or would I be better off getting a notepad and using a three hole punch?

    Rhodia At A Discount...

    Just re-found this site - www.artistcraftsman.com/ and noticed that their Rhodia selection was offered at a 20% discount. In addition, shipping is flat rated at $7.00. Looked good to me as compared to some of the other prices (especially with a shipping charge added. No affiliation. Another attractive opportunity from your friendly pen, paper and ink bargain hunter
  19. I loaded up one of my pens (Homo Sapien F) with Noodler's Sequoia Green recently and noticed on Rhodia paper, it takes about 30 minutes to dry (yes, minutes). Dabbing it with blotting paper helps a bit, but still takes an crazy amount of time to dry. On photo-copy paper it dries within seconds. Is this normal??? My other pens I have inked today have include a TWSBI 580 with Lamy Blue and a GVFC Classic with De Atramentis Puccini. Both these inks dry relatively quickly. I'm wondering if I have a bad batch or do some inks simply take forever to dry.
  20. A couple of things those on the east of the Atlantic might be interested in. Rymans (at least the one in Tunbridge Wells) is selling Rhodia No.16 ruled pads at £1.99 which is far cheaper than I have seen elsewhere. When I don't venture into the big town I go to my local independent stationer who stocks "Initiative" products. They sell Initiative shorthand notebooks at 66p and the paper is really excellent. Perhaps the second side is not quite as good but you get a fountain pen friendly bargain whilst supporting your local independent - everyone's a winner! Martin
  21. Which is the "lesser of two evils"? I have one Webbie (140mm x 210mm - 5.5in x 8.25in; blank) with which I've not been all that enthused for all the usual reasons reported by others here and there: bleed/show/feather etc. Basically, I was disappointed that it wasn't of the same quality as the white Rhodia pad paper - you can, in my experience, apparently throw anything at that kind - broader nibs, wetter inks yadda yadda yadda. From what I've gleaned of the Leuchtturm notebooks, they're not any better. However, what I'd like to know is, to what degree are they worse? Provided that yo
