My Instagram is pretty much just fountain pen pictures, and pictures of my dog. I thought I would do a semi-monthly update here and host my pictures from Instagram. If you can absolutely not wait a whole month to see these pictures of pens and dogs, follow me for some real-time action.
Handwritten Review – Whitelines Grid Notebook – Grey 80g – A4 Size
Pen: Pelikan Souveran M605 – “Binderized” Fine Nib
Ink: Vintage Sheaffer’s Peacock Blue
This notebook was given to me, and at first I threw it to the side and ignored it for a while. I have a smaller journal by the same company that has regular line ruling in it. I wasn’t really the biggest fan of the journal, the paper was weird, it didn’t lay flat, and was awkward to write in. Fast forward eight months later, I came across this notebook in my book shelf and decided to give it a try. In my opinion, the grey paper / white ruling works out much better with a grid than it does with standard lined ruling. The paper performed pretty well, but there was a bit of bleed through / show through going on. While it’s not as good as Rhodia or Maruman, it’s definitely worth checking out. Enjoy the review, and please feel free to comment if you’ve tried out the brand.

The TWSBI Diamond 540, a well built very affordable piston filler.
The Noodler’s Tiananmen looks great sloshing around.
