Lennon Tool Bar Egret Paper

I was curious when Lennon Tool Bar launched their Egret paper last year and bought a pack to try. The papers are 65gsm, plain white in colour and available in A4 or A5 sizes.

At first the Egret paper is only available in a pack of loose papers but now you can also get the Egret paper in pocket notebook form.

The notebooks are 90 x 148 mm (3.5 x 5.8 inches) which makes it slimmer than A6 size. They contain 32 dot grid sheets and are available in 5 different cover colours: red, yellow, green, blue, brown. The string used to bind the notebooks is dyed using Lennon Tool Bar’s own blue dye. The blue dyed string is a pretty cool touch, tying back to their start as an indigo dye company.

The Erget paper is white and soft. When I wrote on it, I could feel a slight drag, but it wasn’t unpleasant. The paper had an interesting texture. Using a somewhat obscure example in this day and age, the paper gave me the sensation that I was running my hand across a blackboard and coming away with my fingers covered in chalk dust. I can’t tell you how many times I stopped and looked at my fingers, expecting to see white powder on them, but of course there are none.

I tested it with Pilot Iroshizuku Kon-Peki and the results are:

  • Shading: Yes
  • Sheen: Yes
  • Feathering: Nil
  • Bleedthrough: Nil

Below are some photos of what it looks like when written with TWSBI ECO-T medium nib.

A bit of sheen in the “i”

Below are a couple of photos showing what it looks like when written on both sides of the paper.
