Signature Black Sketch A6
118 g paper
Fine Italian PU
Duo tone soft cover (soft black outside, soft brown inside)
The signature black sketch notebook is a very classic notebook, right down to its size. It is 108 mm x 149 mm, and thus is just like the Juicy notebook in its portability.

Rhodia Webbie covers. Don't be too alarmed by this. All this means to me is I won't shove it unceremoniously into my purse! The inside cover is soft brown and looks delicious like caramel and it matches the edges of the paper.
Pelikan M1005 fountain pen bled through but it wrote very wet and was freshly inked prior to this (ink on nib still). There is a little bit of show through with the Namiki Vanishing Point, again, it wrote very wet. The Sharpie bled through again as well but this is normal. Despite the bleed through, there was no feathering whatsoever, which makes this notebook pretty fountain pen friendly to my standards. I think under most circumstances, your fountain pen will not bleed through. The demonstrator is a huge nib and the medium point of the Vanishing Point was combined with a Noodler's Eel ink.

I have now reviewed three Daycraft products - the Executive Pocket Diary, the A6 Juicy notebook, and now this Black Signature A6 Sketch notebook. All three exhibit the same great quality - great covers, very polished look inside. The notebooks are fountain pen friendly and while this is not a make or break factor for me, it certainly serves in my favor. This particular black notebook is an ideal gift for someone else, or for yourself. It's classy, elegant, and simple in the best way possible. Don't hesitate to try a Daycraft notebook for yourself!
