(Amazing notebooks. Perfect tiny squares, soft smooth paper, clean-rip perforation. I could not ask for a better notebook!)

Verified Purchase
I have loved every Mnemosyne notebook I've tried so far. This is one of my least favorite (my favorite being the 8x11-or-so 5mm gridded one), but that's not saying much. The paper is smooth, which makes it an absolute delight to write with very fine tipped pens. My only problem with it is that I wish the lines were spaced closer together (for those of us with small handwriting, this is important because it feels like we waste so much vertical space with widely-spaced lines!)

Other than that, I like that there are three "sections" on each page - most of the lines are made of tiny dots, but there are three solid lines (one at the top, one 1/3 way down, one 2/3 way down) that separate the page into sections. They aren't exceptionally obvious, so if you want to use it as one continuous page, it wouldn't look weird or anything, but if you do choose to separate the page into thirds this makes it very convenient. I use this notebook for taking notes in class - since usually about 6-10 different topics are covered per class, I use 2-4 sheets each time and take advantage of the separations.

This is an amazing notebook. The paper is smooth, especially when writing with gel ink pens. The grid boxes are tiny, which is wonderful if you have small handwriting so you're not wasting half the height of the line. It's great for those who don't take notes in just sentences (for example: if you include pictures, diagrams, flow-charts, graphs, tables, etc) because the lines help to visually space everything out evenly and neatly. The perforated edge is perfect - it doesn't rip if you don't intend for it to, but if you do start tearing it it comes off cleanly (without any of that annoying tearing-into-the-page-3cm-from-the-end junk).

Be aware that the grids are only on ONE side! The other side is blank. I like it, because it means I don't have to write on gridded sheets if I don't want to (for example, if I'm drawing a big diagram that doesn't require or benefit from gridlines), but it might annoy you if you expect this notebook to provide double-sided grid-ness.

I use this as a wallet when I don't need coins, tons of store loyalty-program cards, etc. This EASILY fits at least 5 bills($$, I mean), license, health insurance card, 3-5 credit cards, and maybe a little more if you try. I love this thing. It fits in most, if not all, of my jeans' pockets, so I don't have to carry a purse all the time.

I agree with the other review - I wish this thing had refill instructions in English! Also, jeeze, this thing is EXPENSIVE! It works, as long as what you're trying to cover up isn't on glossy paper (matte is best, like regular paper). If it's glossy, it will smudge even if you let it dry for several minutes before touching. But yes, it does work. There are probably less expensive alternatives out there, but if you're Mr.Moneybags, this is certainly an effective product.

I made a stylus for my ipad out of this pen! I glued (krazy glue) a piece of sponge to it, and it is a much better stylus than anything on the market! This is because the entire pen body is metal. As a pen (its intended function), this is fine. Small, compact, absolutely tiny. It is a good length if you put the cap on the back end. Perfect for a small women's purse or clutch, or for any other small space.

Verified Purchase
I have all three sets (I do a lot of highlighting). The grey one is the BEST HIGHLIGHTER I HAVE EVER USED (and I do not take writing in caps lightly). Seriously, this is the best highlighter. It highlights, but reserves the really super important highlights to brighter colors. It lets you know what the important information is without making you inclined to overlook the rest of the text. It's like a little star next to a paragraph (vs. a bold paragraph), but more specific in what the little-star is referring to. Then you could mega-emphasize the ultra-important information with brighter colors.

I would get a pack of just grey highlighters if I could. Instead, I will probably just get 2 more of this set.

Verified Purchase
These notebooks are really small, they are not the size of the average US notebook. However, that's not a bad thing, especially for outlining before exams or trying to consolidate information. I tend to color-code my classes, and I've found it nice to have one regular-sized notebook for taking notes and doing work along with, in the same color, this tiny one for preparing for exams. My favorite thing about this notebook is that the paper is just so soft and smooth and hasn't given me a single papercut (yet). It feels especially smooth when I use my Hi-Tec-C pens to write in it.

Verified Purchase
Scissors can't be all that interesting, right? Well, yeah, you are right. But I can say that these are remarkably comfortable scissors! I use scissors a lot, almost on a daily basis, and these are really great and don't leave my hand sore or tired after using them. There are these delightful rubber cushions all around the inside of both finger-holes, making the grip really comfortable and preventing any points of pressure or pain from gripping the scissor too tightly. It's still just a scissor - there are no bells or whistles or bluetooth laserbeam magic jetpacks - but it is much more comfortable than any other scissor I've used. I will be getting another pair.
