Hailstorm is part of Van Dieman’s Tassie Seasons series, inspired by the colours of each Tasmania’s seasons. This is one of the colours of summer.
This is a green-grey ink. To my eyes, it is more green than grey. This is supposedly the colour of a thunderstorm cloud. I said “supposedly” because hailstorms are rare in Singapore so I don’t know what a hailstorm cloud looks like. I don’t really like this colour but that’s just a personal preference. There is nothing wrong with the ink. It flows well and is easy to clean.
WORLD CRAFT is a Japanese brand. I am using the Freiheit Freestyle Grid Notepad which is made of smooth, cream paper that holds up well to fountain pens. There is a bit of bleed through at the back but not enough to bleed onto the next page. It is 21cm x 12.8cm, which makes it the same height as A5 but thinner.
The page is marked on front and blank on the back. The front of the page is divided into 5mm grid made up of brown dots. Two thin brown lines, one vertical and one horizontal, divide the page in the middle.
WORLD CRAFT also makes this paper in a notebook format.
This is written with a TWSBI ECO-T medium nib.
