Chris:I have purchased many Moleskine books over the years to write with ink based fountain pens. I have loved them! They hold up well to heavy amounts of ink laydown and maintain a nice smooth paper feel.
However, this most recent notebook did NOT. I noticed that when using a fountain pen, the ink bled into the page and feathered heavily which makes it look cheap and sloppy. (see picture) The only difference between the notebook I love and the Blue one I just received was that the Good black one I have was made in China and the new Blue one (this one) was made in Vietnam. The paper feels slightly thinner in the new blue one.
Overall, I am disappointed in the quality of the new one, and am shocked that the quality between different color Moleskine books is so variable.Note: The pictures were written with the same pen, same ink, and taken with the same camera.—⭐
Yuriem:I purchased this notebook because I wanted to start bullet journaling. The Leuchtturm 1917 seems to be the most popular notebook for the bullet journal method, but I actually wanted a notebook that DIDN’T have pre-numbered pages or an index page already in there. I’m loving this one so far! I’ve had moleskines in the past so I’m not worried about the durability. I love that it is dotted because it allows much more freedom for the user to do whatever they want with it, as opposed to the grid and ruled types that are very structured and rigid (and frankly, an eyesore to look at). Something to keep an eye out for is ink bleeding or being visible through the pages, so if you’re worried about any fountain pens or markers you like to use, you can set aside a page just for testing those out. I only wish that this notebook was more readily available; it doesn’t seem to be available in stores anywhere (I’ve only seen the soft cover dotted ones available in store, not the hard cover). From what I’ve seen, the dotted hard cover also only seems to be available in black and not any other colors (though the soft cover dotted ones come in a variety of colors). I’m really hoping that they become more easily available because I don’t plan on buying any other kind of notebook for my bullet journaling!—⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Zach Leto:I’ve been keeping daily journal entries for the past four years, and this was the first time I’ve gone with a Moleskine journal. So here is what I’ve noticed:
Right off the bat, you can tell that this is a well-made journal. It’s very sturdy with crisp pages, a nice elastic band, and a handy bookmark that I’ve tugged on a couple of times (unintentionally) and it has stayed. The pages have very little bleed-through with ink despite the fact that they are so thin. I’m also a fan of the yellowed look. The warmness of that color under lamplight makes writing in this journal relaxing. I have literally traveled around the world with this journal in my bag and despite all the jostling and cramming, it has maintained its shape perfectly.
There is no doubt that Moleskine makes high-quality journals, but I won’t give it five stars because I still think it is overpriced compared to comparable journals on the market if you are willing to do a little digging. Plus, the first page drives me a little crazy because about a quarter inch of it is stuck to the second page making it a pain to write on those first couple of pages since they do not fold down properly. I realize this is nitpicking a little bit, but I feel like this is something that could be easily avoided in manufacturing.
If you have a couple of extra dollars to spend on a journal, get this and don’t think twice. If you want to be more frugal, shop around a bit, but you can’t go wrong with this notebook.—⭐⭐⭐⭐
