I'm a bit underwhelmed...
January 23, 2015
I'm a bit underwhelmed by this notebook for the price. The binding is funky, and
every other page is stuck/glued together by about a millimeter along the
binding. This prevents the pages from laying completely flat--and it's just
annoying. Also, the tabs don't come in all that handy, and they take away
valuable writing space from an already small notebook. Also, the grid lines are
very dark (even though they're yellowish brown) and distracting. Lighter colored
inks are drowned out by the grid lines.
Overall though, the paper quality is good, and it's a sharp looking notebook. I
haven't beat it up much, but it seems durable. Definitely fountain pen friendly
(no show through or bleed through), but I would recommend the Buncobon Dot
http://www.jetpens.com/Kokuyo-Buncobon-Dot-Cover-Notebooks/ct/958 They're almost
$3 cheaper, have a bookmark, and are more enjoyable to use.
