This paper is highly recommended by fountain pen users, but I am disappointed. Whilst the ruling is fantastic for practising handwriting, calligraphy and fancy lettering, and the surface is nice enough to not bleed or feather, I find that it is far too 'toothy'. It does not feel as smooth as I would like, or as I was expecting it to feel. It is usable, even with a wet writing fountain pen, but it is not a pleasure to use at all.My other problem with it is the hole punching. I bought this to use in my standard two ring binder, but I am dismayed to find that the punching is far too wide for use in *ANY* UK standard size binder. This renders the holes punch in the paper, totally useless and just in the way. If I want to use this, I am going to need to re-punch it all with a standard punch. This is stupid, time consuming and something I have never had to do with any other brand of pre-punched paper. Photo included to show the position of the holes next to a standard size ring binder.
