Wanted to love these as I'd coveted them since I first saw. The covers are soft and flexible and a beautiful color of blue. The paper feels heavenly too. The only negative was in using wetter inks or even average inks via a wet nib or a flex nib that lays down a thicker line; this would result in feathering. Inks I've never had a feathering problem on Rhodia/Clairefontaine and/or Japanese type papers were all predisposed to light feathering when used with very wet nibs or heavy flex nibs. I should point out that the feathering was very nominal. If you write with fine or extra fine or even a medium nib with an average or dryer ink you'd likely never see feathering. Thus my 4 star rating. I'll just make sure I use this notebook accordingly and eliminate the problem. Otherwise, it's top notch.
