When I was a student I took all my notes on paper, and usually wrote first drafts on paper as well.

My setup then was in the beginning to use Pilot G2ā€™s and Retro51ā€™s on Moleskine. Then I got into Pilot Metropolitans, before eventually getting a Lamy 2000.

My paper choices went from Moleskine to whatever college rule was available before I eventually landed on these thick A4 hardcover notebooks. There was a few different models, ranging from like 200 pages to 500 I think.

There was a lot of feathering going on, but it was a great compromise for me back then to use these. Because they were the only notebook I could get locally that handled fountain pens in any usable way. And not having to pay for international shipping for notebooks saved me a lot of money.

When I had the Lamy 2000, I used to refill it every morning and if I for some weird reason ran out of ink Iā€™d just use the Metropolitan as a backup.
