Smooth but strange with fountain inks: bleeds yet slow to absorb so smears and
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).
