I love these notebooks!...
Verified Purchase
I love these notebooks! Not only the layout, but also the fact that the back side of each page is blank (which actually disappointed me at first, but then I grew to appreciate it, because it facilitates more freeform use).

I write in mine with both pencil (generally a 3B Hi-Uni) and also a few different very fine-nibbed fountain pens (typically with Iroshizuku inks) and find they both work just great on the smooth finish of the paper Maruman uses here.

A couple nice touches are the classy but understated front cover, which makes this notebook look perfectly at home in a conference room, and the nice sturdy cardboard back cover, which offers plenty of support even when you have to take notes while standing.

I love this sharpener!...
Verified Purchase
I love this sharpener! And it works great for the triangular Uni Penmanship pencils; the Kum two-hole "triangular and hexagonal" sharpener I tried first didn't. The Kum's small hole was too small for the Uni and the large hole was too large, causing me to use up too much of the pencil trying to get a good point, and I still didn't manage to get a good point. This Stad sharpener is perfect, though. The colored pencil hole puts a great point on the triangular Uni without any waste. Nice pocketable (blue jeans) size, too, but make sure to empty it first; I ended up with a pocketful of pencil shavings one day because the top somehow popped off. Another nice feature is that this sharpener was obviously designed to fit the hand perfectly while in use; feels extremely natural, secure and comfortable while sharpening.
