Fountain Pen Notebook Update

Fountain Pen Notebook Update

I’m thinking the initial run will be between 4×6 and 5×7, use double-wire binding, heavy covered board covers, and smooth paper stock that is thick enough to not bleed through or feather using a Lamy Medium Nib w/ Noodler’s Bulletproof Black. Fine Point Sharpie will be the acid test that would be nice; it’ll depend on the paper samples that come in and the cost. Also will investigate the rounded corner option.

I’m expecting to get some paper samples this week from the rep, and am testing various inks and pen combinations. If you have a suggestion on inks to test with, let me know your recommendations. Thanks!

    Great, I can´t wait to see the final version. Almost all that I have tried are not worth, ink always passes by to the next page.

    Pedro: What kind of pen / nib / ink are you using?

    I am really excited by this. I have been using Levenger and they have gone away from nearly all of their gridded paper.

    Can’t wait to try one. Parker 21 with Noodler’s blue among others (too many to list) waiting to try it!
