Review: Piccadilly Notebook Graph
When I came across the Picadilly Essential Graph Notebook I was looking for an alternative to the Moleskine notebook. I like graph paper in my notebooks, and that is what this one is.
My notebook is the medium size, which is my preferred size. My notebook has a hard cover much like the Moleskine cover. It takes the wear of being in a bag well.
It has the features of a Moleskin notebook; elastic to hold it closed and pocket in the back. The elastic is comparable to the Moleskine. I believe the pocket is well made and will hold up as well as a Moleskine's.
So far I have used Pilot G2 pens with this notebook and Waterman fountain pen ink (Brown), and they take the ink well. I see shadows on the reverse side of the pages when I write on the back, but the ink does not bleed through. Based on the use of the pens I have used I have seen comparable paper to the Moleskine in quality.
I would definitely purchase this again. I have been happy with it, and feel that it is a great value when compared to the Moleskine.
- Slightly less expensive
- Easier to find, as it is usually available where Moleskine notebooks are.
- Paper works well with Gel pens and fountain pens.
- Cover is heavy duty.
I give it a rating of 10 out of 10.
