Stephanie @ the Spiritual Evolution of the Bean, with her thoughts on the new Web Notebook, especially how it works with different inks and nibs:

“13 different fountain pen inks (3 different manufacturers – Herbin, Noodler’s and Diamine) tested in 13 different fountain pens ranging in extra fine to medium nibs plus two cursive italics in .5 and .7 nib widths. This paper is super smooth with every single pen/ink combination tested, and I experienced no feathering, spreading, (meaning that each nib wrote at it’s actual size) and no bleed-through to the other side. ..”

There are concerns, and she notes among others:

“…the signatures are sewn a little tight, (like most Clairefontaine products) and it prevents the book from opening completely flat – like the Moleskine. In my opinion…it’s flat enough – but I wish they would consider improving the tension…”

In the end,  this nice compliment. Rest assured our R&D people are listening/reading.

“…while this product may not be all things to all people, I’m going to say that it’s immediately moving to the top of my list as the #1 plain black journal for “preferred writers.”

  1. I’m interested in the new Webnotebook, but would recommend that if you must include a “Rhodia” mark in the bottom corner of the page, I’d rather see a subtle watermark-type instead of the brazen stamp currently used.

  3. Love Stephanie’s blog.
    Her tests with a wide variety of fountain pens and inks will make ex-molie users of many of us.
