Handy papers and pens

Dear Readers,

Fountain pen without paper is either ugly and useless or standalone piece of art. Ok, there are also inks, inkwells, blotting papers etc. So, what you need to make a perfect combination in easy steps? Match pen with paper. It doesn,t look complicated in theory, but it is a little bit tricky in practice.

What do I recommend? Only checked solutions . What will happen if we combine Europe with Asia or vice versa. One option is to mix Japanese perfection in minimalism with a solid German technology. In other words Japanese papers and German fountain pens.

Today’s target: combination should be perfect for everyday usage, so it should be compact, small and very handy.

Within papers, I propose Tomoe River and Midori. This is a right choice for fountain pens, of course you can use them also with ballponts, rollers, pencils, crayons and whole rest of writing or drawing instruments.

My proposal is as follows:

  • Hobonichi Planner – Techo in european version in A6 size
  • MD notebook A6 size – MD probably stands for Midori Diary
  • Midori Traveller’s Notebook passport size – now without word Midori in the product name
Montblanc Boheme, Montblanc Heritage, Traveller’s Notebook and Hobonichi Planner
Montblanc Heritage and Hobonichi Planner

A good companion in your pocket or bag for small notebooks are sophisticated Montblanc’s writing instruments. Because today we are looking for handy ones, so size  is significant and should somehow correspond with the size of notebooks.

My proposal is as follows:

  • Montblanc Chopin 75 Anniversary
  • Montblanc Heritage Collection 1912
  • Montblanc Boheme Arabesque Azur
Montblanc: Boheme, 75 Anniversary, Heritage plus Midori Traveler’s, MD Notebook, Hobonichi Planner
Montblanc: Boheme, 75 Anniversary, Heritage plus Midori Traveler’s, MD Notebook, Hobonichi Planner

Why these products?  There are so many others on the market. These are my preferences and combinations which were carefully checked by me on a daily basis. You can try with your own but in my oppinion if you try with this one  you will not be dissapointed. If you are interested in more detailed descriptions of above mentioned product please chceck the blog regularly because they will have their own reviews in the near future. Montblanc Heritage 1912 review you can find here.

Thank you and meet you soon.

Maybe something bigger 🙂

    I’m a big fan of Midori MD paper and Hobonichi. In both cases great paper and lay-flat-after-opening concept. Hope to see different cover color options for Hobonichi soon. Thank you for the review and pictures.
