I love notebooks! I own many different styles in many different sizes and shapes. But, sadly, as much as I absolutely love my notebooks, I abuse the heck out of them :(.
Remember Elmyra from Tiny Toons? Remember how much she loved animals? Loved them to death - literally?! Yeah, that's me with notebooks. I love them and hold them and carry them all over... and then they start to fall apart and, after a short life, die a horrible death --*if*-- they aren't good quality.
I bought the CD-11 in black, light blue, and sky blue from here and I also have the CD-15 in red. They are excellent. I have drug them everywhere for about a month now and they have held up after all the love (abuse) I have given them. And - the paper!! Not only is it nice and smooth to the touch, but there's no fountain pen ink bleed through.
Thanks, Goulet, for your personalized service, and prompt delivery of great quality products.

Good Little Notebook
September 23, 2013
from Lynchburg, VA United States
These notebooks have good paper, nice and smooth with nibs from EF to B. Only 28 pages, but that is good for single subjects or just to tuck away for when you need it. I got longer dry times than Brian did on his video. Noodler's Black in my TWSBI M smeared a lot after 30 seconds. In a Lamy EF the bottom of my lines smeared somewhat after 30 seconds. Diamine Ancient Copper in a TWSBI B nib took 50 seconds before it did not smear. Humidity in my house could be higher, it has been cool so the AC has not been running much. No bleed-through at all and no show-thru to worry about. I like these thin notebooks and recommend these.
