That's a nice looking notebook and the price is sure right -- thanks for the link. Where is it made, can you tell?
Interesting. I've used these off and on throughout the last couple of decades, just not for fountain pens, yet. Definitely boilerplate. They have a no-nonsense, retro look.
Edit: I went back to take another look at them, the paper is "white sulfite paper." Looks like its pretty good stuff: here's one link about it.

I use the "Markings by C.R. Gibson" Eco notebooks from Wal-Mart. They're fairly cheap and the paper works pretty good with most pens and inks. I've used it with my Parker "51", Kaweco Ice-Sport E.D. (EF), and Platinum Preppy E.D. (F), and Noodler's, Diamine, and Private Reserve inks. No bleed-through and almost no feathering with all of them (Private Reserve's a bit wet for most pens, so it feathers a little bit.) Not bad for a <$5 notebook. They hold up fairly well, too. I carry one in my back pocket every day and the only wear is a little bit of bending. If there's one complaint, it's that they put the elastic keeper too close to the edge for that method of carry and it slips off the cover now and again.
