the new one is so poor that I wouldn't even use fountain pen on it, 11 Dec. 2014
Very disappointing - the paper is cheap and flimsy and certainly not the quality it used to be. I compared this notebook to a small plain one I bought a few years ago and the comparison is astounding. The older one had paper which was the weight of thin card and could have supported a range of mediums, the new one is so poor that I wouldn't even use fountain pen on it, as I suspect the writing would show through to the other side. Moleskine are obviously cutting quality to save money and hoping to just keep trading on a reputation which was built up over previous decades. Certainly this standard of paper will not acquire any favourable reputation in the future. My recommendation would be to look elsewhere.
