    Sweet! I'd like to try those pens someday, myself. They look very nice. I like Pilot pens! I have two Prera pens, and they write very well.

    The Decimo is a recent acquisition, but the VP I have been using for well over a year now. All day, every day at work. I love that pen. The Decimo is just like it, but a little thinner and lighter.

    I would hate to go w/o them.

    I use it mainly for journal writing. Awesome quality and feel.

    I have Lamy Safari in graphite matte for more than a year. My work requires writting but didn't use it much 'cause it is ruining the page on the other side. Does not bleed but when you write on both sides of a page, it is more difficult to read it because of the oposite page writing. And I am using the Lamy T10 refills. And I know it is the notebook's fault so that is my question - what brand/type of notebooks hold on to the ink. I am currently having notebook, gifted to me by one of our company's clients and it is great! You can barely see the fountain pen writing on the other page - awesome!
    And only you - fountain pen users can help me with that!
    I was re-reading the writing instrument threat and this one (naturally) and ordered 3 more fountain pens - one fine and one M nib + a total of 65 ink refills (2 lots of blue ink 35 and 1 lot 30 pieces different colors cartriges). Just cheap chinese pens - Jinhao x450, Jinhao 599 and Hero 901 - want to explore a little bit before spending more money.
    I will be supplied to the roof when they arrive, all I need is decent paper.

    @IGetov: Rhodia, Red 'n' Black ', or Clairfontaine are highly rated. So are many of the Japanese brands such as Apica and Maruman Mnemosybe.

    For more info than you ever expected, suggest you visit Fountain Pen Network. They have dedicated subforms to paper evaluations (and just about every other thing related!)
    Here is a link: http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/308687-the-perfect-notebook/

    L'chaim!

    Thanks a lot, Moshe! I was discussing this with Floyed and he also gave me recomendations of Clairfontaine and Rhodia. Lucky for me, local bookstore offers Rhodia notebooks and will deffinately buy some.
    Japanese brands are interesting also but naturally more expensive but will consider them in the future.
    And thanks for the weblink - will have a look at it this evening.
    God bless you for the help and advice!

    My Lamy Safari graphite matte and my work notebook (no brand but good enough to sustain the ink with no bleeding). Blue ink T10 Lamy refill. Black writting below is from my Fisher Rocket pen I used at the office.
