    Four months in still going strong

    I absolutely love this notebook. Yes it’s not TRP as expected but I’m still enjoying the book all the same. I tested out lots of pens and inks when it first arrived and settled on EF or F nib fountain pens with De Atramentis Document ink. There is very minimal bleed through which once you write on both sides is hardly noticeable. This is my everyday journal and commonplace notebook. Only I will ever read the pages so perfection is not important to me. Love the pocket in the back for some sticker sheets and stencils. If these get another batch made with TRP I’ll be stocking up for sure. It’s so hard to find a nice lined notebook, everything is always grid which I love for planning but much prefer lined for long form writing. Thank you Tess for providing a great alternative to the branded option out there that has the worst paper ever imaginable 😂

    Sehr gute Qualität aber..

    Benutze das Notizbuch jetzt seit 1 Woche.Man merkt die gute Qualität, nur leider leidet die Rückseite des Buches. Das Cover (schwarz) löst sich leider vom Buchrücken hab. Vermute, dass es wahrscheinlich an der Tasche, die am Buchrücken verarbeitet ist. Für den Preis, nach einer Woche Nutzung,(mit Schutzbeutel)sehr schade und ärgerlich.

    Agree with Verna Below

    I had really high hopes for this notebook and I agree that it will be absolutely perfect if it’s re-released with Tomoe River paper. The design is superb. The paper is still nice and thin enough, but there is a lot of bleed-through even with a fine nib. The ink doesn’t feather so if you don’t mind writing on only one side, it’s possible. But I’ll be using a Uniball One with it instead.

    Though I know there was an issue with the paper, I still love it. The size is perfect, the feel is great. Once it has the proper paper, it will definitely be a favorite and a 5 star!!

    A bit sad that the paper wasn’t as good as expected! But I’ll just use another pen than my fountain pen. And I really love the notebook. Can’t wait to fill this up! It’s gonna be my commonplace planner where I write whatever whenever, all my screenshots and everything I see that I want to keep or find interesting ❤️ thank you for making this notebook🥰
