  1. Perfect lined notebook 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Aug 2020

    As a fountain pen user, I am quite particular about paper quality. This notebook is a hidden gem. I don't understand how there is only 1 review other than mine. 200 pages (100 sheets) for $8 is a steal for this paper quality. This paper is 81.4 grams per square meter, is smooth, and of all the inks I've used only one feathered (I think that was do moreso to the scratchy nib than the paper). I tested 7 inks in nibs ranging from my normal fine to the odd stub/calligraphy nib and there was no feathering. My Robert Oster inks had wonderful shading, the sheen from Organics Studio Nitrogen was visible.

    If you're looking for a lined notebook, don't think about it. Just purchase it.

  2. Tsubame A5 College Lined Notebook Review 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jun 2020

    Smoooth paper in signatures that is so pleasurable for writing. Subtle lattice lines are seen when held up to light. I use these notebooks for journals. I scribble away every day and really like the enhanced experience of my fountain pen nibs on this excellent, lined paper. The notebooks lie flat when open. The line spacing is just right for my handwriting. What a great find!

  3. An excellent notebook 5 Star Review

    This is a very nice notebook (at an excellent price). The paper holds ink well and is a good length for many projects. I note also, the price is quite good ($8.00) for a 100 sheet (200 page) quality notebook. Now if only there was a 100 sheet version of this notebook with grids!
