    Sketchbook and Pen pictures

    I took some fotos... because that is what I like doing. :-)

    For sizing of the pen: here it is next to a Lamy Safari and a Pilot G2


    This is the Small Travel Tray


    And this is the Large Travel Tray:


    I hope this is helpful

    PS: this is the picture where I show off the many O-Rings this Sketchbook features:

    Love the photos, very helpful!

    So the pen is actually shorter than a normal Bic 4-Color? Mine doesn't fit in a small travel tray.

    @Cristina you can buy mini Bic 4-colour pens ..... I'm guessing this is one of those rather than a custom size.

    I had the same reaction as BW!

    Ilkyway, thank you for the lovely picture, would you mind sharing the size of the OP's?

    i assume the bag is the Little Swift.

    @backpack first I owe you a big appology: I meant to hit reply with quote but on my phone everything is so small that I by exident hit Edit Post. So I first put my answer inside your post thinking... that looks weird... When I realised my mistake I deleated my answer out of your post hoping I left your post as it was. Please check. So sorry about this. I am too old to post form my phone it seems.

    Ok now the answer: the Litte Swift was correct. The pouches are two Clear Organizer Wallets and two Mini Organizer Pouches (which are the same size as the wallets).

    Ilkyway

    PS: again so sorry!!!

    Ilkyway, I am actually happy that you didn't quote me because, I was in a hurry to post, storms all night long on Friday, today and now lots of rain, so I forgot to use a capital with I.

    More questions: Does the sketchbook fit in the Medium OP? Is it fountain pen friendly?

    Sketchbook and Pen pictures

    @backpack

    This pictures shoes a Mini, Small and Medium Organizer Pouch with the Sketchbook:



    The Medium is a nice fit:




    The paper is very smooth but I am hesitant to call it fountainpen friendly:





    There is the tieniest bid of shadowing which is neglectable.
    And only the DeAtramentos ink bleeds through (also not too bad) but if you compare the lines: fountainpens on this paper will write broader as the inc soaks a bit into the paper and that makes the writing feel a bit slower sort of. But with an unproblematic inc and a fine nip this will defiantly work.

    Ilkyway

    PS: writing with a ballpoint or gel pen is a delight for the smoothness of the paper.

    On the positive side for us lefties who love fountain pens, soaking in a bit means less chance of smearing!

    Good point! I managed to smear a bit on the non-soaking paper as you can see and I am a clumbsy righthanded person.
