In search of the best paper for fountain pen use

Introduction

Hello everyone! πŸ˜€ This has been a long time coming but I finally managed to get around to it. So this idea came to me when I received a notepad from Colorverse that had Tomoe River Paper in it. That paper is regarded by many to be the best paper for fountain pen use and it produces the highest amount of sheen with inks out of all the papers. I thought to myself that there is surely paper better than Tomoe River floating around somewhere, I just need to find it. So I decided to go on a quest to find the best paper for fountain pen use!

As it turns out, there isn’t a paper (or I haven’t found it yet) that excels at everything. Nonetheless there are a couple of good papers out there that I can recommend for you guys to try out. I’m not going to babble on much longer so let’s start.

Or you can skip to the “Final Thoughts” section -> here

Today I have for you something very special and interesting! I recently (well today) got my hands on a new product soon to be released by Colorverse and I’m telling you it’s going to be great! 🀯Especially at the price point they are targeting for the current design. Naturally before we delve into anything I would like to thank C.K. for providing me with samples!

Oh and let’s just do a quick recap of who Colorverse are!

Colorverse is a South Korean ink maker best known for their beautiful colors, their use of natural dyes in their inks and of course their unique glass bottles. If you want to check out there inks please click here.

Colorverse decided they are going to expand their product range with a new product and they called it the Nebula Note. Now if you have read the title or have seen the cover photo you already know that the Nebula Note is their notebook that’s going to appear in the near future.

Pennonia Tintenbuch – Ink Swabbing Book

Pennonia-Tintenbuch-ink-swabs-swatches14

Hi! Today I’m going to present the Pennonia Tintenbuch. It is an ink swabbing book that will help you view the colors in your ink collection, you’ll be able to organize and compare your inks as you see fit. Our American readers are more than likely already familiar with a similar product called the Col-o-Ring created by The Well Appointed Desk. The Tintenbuch was created to fulfill my personal need to have a similar product at my disposal. I’m an avid pen enthusiast with a huge ink collection and I’ve been longing for a similar product like this ever since I saw my first ink swatch card. The problem and was that it is simply too expensive to buy products from the US when you are located in Europe. Not only is shipping expensive, but you will have to pay customs tax and VAT as well. If you’re also like me who lives in a small town you’ll also need to travel to the nearest customs office (which is 30 km from me). That’s basically why the Pennonia and the Tintenbuch exists.

So to sum it up, the Pennonia Tintenbuch is an ink swabbing book for us in Europe so we can also enjoy and organize our inks into neat little color swatches. Without further ado, let’s jump into the presentation!
