Field Notes Workshop Companion – Staple Day
Staple Day has arrived on my Plumbing No. 05 notebook from the Field Notes Colors Edition Workshop Companion. It’s the first book in my journey to the Butcher Orange. The notebook is holding up extremely well, which is to be expected from the heavier Kraft-Tone paper. Here’s a quick look as it stands after 10 days of use. I’m really loving this edition. The thick paper has allowed no bleed-through with my usual pens, including my Lamy w/Medium nib, and that includes some pretty heavy application of the fountain pen.
I really like the way it’s starting to wear through the blue. Unfortunately the wear on the top half doesn’t show through as nicely without a full color application. However, I’m glad it’s starting to look like it’s actually been used. There’s a solid crease that developed on the spine. The cover stays open flat without any resistance when I lay it down.
