Not suitable for fountain pens!
on May 21, 2014
This is a handsome looking notebook, in a form that's hard to find in the US. I bought one as the next best thing to replace the hardcover A4 notebooks I used to get in England (from a standard office supply company).
However, I was very disappointed to discover upon starting to use it that with a fountain pen, the paper soaks up too much ink, and feathers and bleeds right through.
I'm using Diamine ink (a good quality ink which generally works fine on normal paper) and a pen with medium flow with a medium nib. It should not be bleeding through the page. This doesn't happen on normal paper, and really this is what I'd expect from a very cheap notebook using low quality paper.
