Sigel Conceptum A5

Return to Previous Page

I really like the ribbed cover, the double ribbons, the numbered pages and the pen loop.
Could have been my new go-to notebook, but sadly the paper is not very good.

Pretty much all fountain pens above F have bad ghosting, fineliner (F) was really bad with ghosting and some bleeding.
Most wet writers will bleed, but some inks did better than others.
(Parker Quink in a really wet writer only had bad ghosting.)
The pen/ink combination really seems to matter with this one.
