Clairefontaine Classic
Clairefontaine Classic Staplebound Notebook - Lined (3.54 x 5.51) is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little notebooks These were sent out to ink drop members in September. I loved them so much, that I came back and ordered 5 more of them. I gave one to each of my grandchildren and kept one to use for my ink samples. I'm new to fountain pens and I wanted to write down the name and brand of each ink as I got it so that I could remember if I like it or not. I use the one I got with my ink drop for the ink drop samples. The paper is wonderful! Very thick and smooth. There is very little shadowing on the back and I have not had any of the inks bleed through to the back yet. I like them so much, that I ordered a large one today to use as a journal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I carry it all the time now. I got this book for random scribbling and such -- writing to do lists and random thoughts. It hasn't received any more than expected wear and tear from carrying it in my pocket for two weeks -- it has held together quite nicely. (And, I do a fair amount of walking around campus with it.) Also, the paper behaves well with my fountain pens, with feathering and bleed-through at a minimum. The lines on the pages are a light, blue-ish purple color. The only real drawback I have noticed with this book so far is the dry time. It does take my ink slightly longer to dry on this paper than other, more common papers (printer paper, etc.), but that is to be expected with Clairefontaine paper.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So many uses, such great value Slightly bigger than the pocket version, these are more versatile because they can hold that much more information per page. Enough sheets to be highly useful but not so many as to be cumbersome, I find them perfect for jotting down the occasional note or keep a separate book for different projects. The same wonderful Clairefontaine paper as all of their other products, fountain pens love these! At two and a quarter bucks, the best value among all booklets of this size. The coated cover is quite durable, lasting well even after carrying around in a hip pocket. The only possible improvement would be a bookmark and elastic band; easily added in a two minute DIY with a pocket knife, a ribbon and a piece of elastic band.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for Midori Traveler (just about) I use this Notebook in my Passport sized Midori Traveler and while it does not fit perfectly (slightly too tall, sticking out about .5 inch at the ends), it is one of the best quality papers you can use in a Midori at a reasonable price. The paper is thick and smooth, ensuring that all inks do not bleed through and most do not even show through. The binding seems adequate, the paper color is a pleasant bright white, and the design/colors of the covers are a nice touch. This Classic Clairefontaine notebook is very high quality and nearly ideal for a Midori Traveler Notebook (if not for the size difference. Highly recommend for back pocket use/traveling/on-the-go/Midori use. SEE INK NOUVEAU VIDEO FOR SIZE DIFFERENCE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great paper, great size. My usual go-to paper is Apica. I love that it's soft, and my pens are always whisper quiet on them. But they don't make a notebook this size, and I'm a pretty big guy, so I wanted one that wasn't too thick while also being tough. So far this notebook has been a champ. I carry it in my back pocket every day and, while it's definitely beat up, the paper has performed beautifully and the notebook itself saves me from watching good inks go to waste on post-it notes that I'll just lose anyway. 10/10, will always have a few of these around.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Typical Clairefontaine Excellence I have a number of other Clairefontaine notebooks and they are all top quality. The paper is superb quality and perfect for fountain pens. I wanted a smaller notebook and bought 3 of these. Same wonderful paper, high quality construction as all my other CF notebooks, highly recommended for anyone using fountain pens. One of these will contain a continuing record of each of my inked pens and which ink they have in them. Tired of trying to remember or sticking labels on my pens.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clairefontaine Notebook - 3.5 X 5.5 I purchased both this size and the smaller size Clairefontaine notebook after watching the video. I used to use a Mead mini-journal; however, Clairefontaine paper is fountain pen friendly and works well with the inks and pens that I have in rotation. The 3.5" X 5.5" format will fit in a shirt pocket and is great for many purposes. However, it extend out of a shallow pocket. If you wear shirts with flaps over the pocket - you may want to consider the smaller 3X4 size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you note--------book Instead of a "Thank you" card, I send a "Thank you" note in a nice notebook. It is more useful, and keeps longer. The 3.5 x 5.5 Clairefontaine is perfect. I hope some of the business cards you included bear fruit.
