Leuchtturm1917 A5 RULED Notebook - Navy

  • The Paper:

    It’s a really, really smooth acid-free 80gsm paper, that will take fountain pens, Brush Pens and all fineliners without damaging them. But it has enough tooth to make you feel like you’ve got control of your pen while writing. With the relatively low gsm, some of your standard bullet journal supplies might ghost.


    Pen Test Results --

    Best used with (most of these will cause minimal ghosting, if any):

    • Tombow & Koi Brush Pens

    • Sakura Gelly Roll pens

    • Staedtler, MUJI and Sakura Pigma Micron fineliners (PN and other large nib sizes will ghost a little, but won’t bleed)

    • UniPosca paint maker

    • Uniball Signo pens in metallic colours

    • Pen tip side of the Zebra Mildliner

    • All watercolour paints


    You may experience some ghosting (depending on how much pressure you apply when you write) with:

    • The edge of the Zebra Mildliner (where you stop writing, the ink flow is the juiciest - that’s the only part where the highlighter might bleed through)

    • Tombow Fudenosukes (Hard Tip & Soft Tip) - if you’re heavy handed with them. I tend to apply pressure on my pens when I write, so these bleed through a little bit for me sometimes.


    Watercolour Test Results --

    You can use a decent amount of water to paint with watercolours in this notebook, and it will take it like a boss. I’ve even painted a whole page with a watercolour backdrop and used a UniPosca paint marker on top, and nothing bled through. The Leuchtturm1917 passed the watercolour paints test with flying colours.
