  I am always on the lookout..., November 21, 2012
By john
I am always on the lookout for journals that are good for fountain pens... This one is not. It is made with Clairefontaine 64gr... but it bleeds through. Tried with are variety of fine and x-fine nibs and several brands of ink... half of it was bleed through the other half very dark see through.

Nice journal, but not for me... Leveger Stanley refill work great, and Rhodia webbies are fantastic.

  I love these journals...., March 20, 2014

I love these journals. For what it's worth, I always get the blank paper refills (no printing or lines on the page). I find the plain paper stands up better to fountain pen ink.

  Best journal I've tried..., January 25, 2012
By hwp...
Best journal I've tried to date. I am in the quest for writing instruments, pens & papers, as part of a self-imposed long-term songwriting project - going "old school". I turned to JetPens to find, and experiment with, tools for handwriting. Writing with pen and paper helps to start and maintain the creative process in a way that computers cannot.

So far the Exacompta Journal is about as close to perfection as I could hope for. The size is a great compromise between too small and too large. The paper is a pleasure to write on and the refillable cover holds the refill securely (and looks beautiful). The lined refill has room at the top of each page for date and notes. The pages are permanently bound, they are not removable nor can extra pages be inserted. This is very important for my work, especially when it comes to proof of copyright.

I love writing with this system. I plan to order a bundle of refills to keep a consistent set of records of my handwritten songs. I also ordered another Exacompta Journal in a different color to jot down ideas (e.g. TItles, themes, storylines).
