Maruman Giuris Loose Leaf Paper - A5 - Lined - 20 Holes - 100 Sheets - MARUMAN HL300H
  Smooth but strange with..., January 9, 2013
Smooth but strange with fountain inks: bleeds yet slow to absorb so smears and transfers.

I got the 5-pack of this paper and the binder from Maruman, both expensive propositions. The paper is very smooth and attractive, and the 20-hole format is very stable; however, my experience with three different Noodler's inks has been poor. With all of them, my writing bleeds; with the red and the blue, it takes a while to be absorbed into the paper, which causes transferring to adjacent pages, which makes it a pain to use. Takes the pen reasonably well, though maybe even too smooth such that there is not quite enough bite for the pens I use (F to EF nibs from Sailor, Pilot, Lamy).

Nice nib, good flow, but resin body is too light and scratches way too easily at this price point.

For this price, I would expect a more resilient and weighty pen. I think it goes for twenty bucks or less in Japan.

That being said, I like writing with it and use it often with the cap posted. The fine nib is very fine but doesn't gouge paper.
