Maruman Mnemosyne (Or Others): Perforated B5 Notebook Paper?
tvradio posted a topic in Paper and Pen ParaphernaliaI'm looking for a FP-friendly ruled B5 notebook/pad (spiral or not) that has perforated pages so I can easily remove them and file them. I'm currently using loose, ruled Kokuyo Campus paper, which is great except for it being 20-hole paper. I liked the look of the Maruman Mnemosyne notebooks I saw online but I can't tell from the pics whether the side-spiral pages are perforated (like top-spiral Rhodia pads are). Does anyone know? If not, can anyone point to any other ruled perforated B5 pads I might want to look at? I'm looking for something without insane dry times (so Tomoe River is out of the running).
Greetings From California Usa
bigkahuna posted a topic in IntroductionsGreetings fellow FP enthusiasts! I've been lurking here for a couple of months and finally made an account. About 3 months ago, I was talking to my son. He said that he had heard good things about fountain pens, and that I should try one. I logged on to the Amazon website and bought a Pilot Metropolitan (Medium). Worth a try for under 15 bucks, so why not? I liked it so much I bought some pens as gifts for my (adult) kids... Since I was buying gifts, I bought my self some good notebooks and accessories to reward myself for being such a generous dad. I liked those too so I bought some for my kids. Again, I rewarded myself for being so thoughtful. I also bought some pens and gave them as gifts to my friends, employees and coworkers. Again, I rewarded myself... and this cycle repeated several more times. After 3 months, here's the tally... Given as gifts: Pilot Metropolitans (several, M and F), Pilot Plumix (several, CM), Pilot Elite 95S (M), Pilot Custom Heritage 92 (F), Italix Churchman's Prescriptor (M italic), Pilot Prera (CM), Pilot Varsity/V-Pen (several, M and F), Maruman Mnemosyne B5 notebooks (several), Kakuyo Notebook Cover (x3), Aston leather pen sleeves/cases, inks, syringes, pen stands and other accessories. For me: Edison Collier with tuned nibs (B, EF, 0.8mm Daily Italic), Pilot Custom Heritage 92 (x2, F and M), Pilot Elite 95S (F), Pilot Prera, Italix Churchman's Prescriptor (M stub), Italix Captain's Commission (B italic), Pilot Lucina (x2, M and F), Pilot Penmanship (EF), Pilot Kakuno with CON-70 convertor (x2, M and F), Pilot Parallel calligraphy pens (one of each size), notebooks, notebook covers, calligraphy books, leather pen sleeves/cases, Maxpedition EDC and Beefy organizers, inks, syringes, pen stands and other accessories. One of my coworkers (who knows nothing about fountain pens) FOUND a fountain pen in the street and asked me to see if I could identify it and get it working. It turned out to be a Cross Townsend in Titanium Finish, with a gold-plated steel Fine nib, The pen was dry, and had been flatttened just a bit as if it had been run over by several cars. I conducted a thorough inspection, cleaning, tine realignment and re-inked it. The pen is fully functional and writes beautifully. I think it is a very durable, well made pen... and being suitably impressed by it, I am currently awaiting delivery of my first Cross Townsend (made in USA, Malachite finish). Shopping for Townsend #2 also. So, I'm starting to think that I may like fountain pens. I can't be sure until I try some more, and I've only been at this for a few months. One of my friends asked "how many fountain pens do you need?"... My answer: "At least one more."
