I recently bought one each of the large/small Moleskine sketchbooks without knowing what kind of paper was in them. It reminds me of the "Oak Tag" paper used for Manilla folders. It seems that my regular pens/markers are reacting differenty to this type of material and I was wondering what kinds of writing impliments people favored for use in the sketchbooks.
Sakura Pigma Microns. I love them, but I go through them very quickly. The nibs break fairly easily too. Though I am currently using a Pilot G-Tec-C4. I use a Lamy Vista fountain pens for my journal though.
23rd spiral says:
in my new London City Notebook my trusted Waterman fountain pen bled odly and horribly. On cheep paper it beeds out in all directions, in this moleskin it bled in small lines like streams away from the writing. Argh!!
So, in starting my first Moleskine pocket weekly diary i had a crisis… risk streams of ink or use a biro! I had no gel pens left, and needed to start on new years day of course. Also, because i only get 7 narrow lines to record a day’s activity, the pen can’t be too thick. Any UK-avalible ideas?
I see many of you use fountain pens, any ideas why mine went so wrong?
