The Leuchtturm Notebook has many great qualities from the table of contents to the numbered pages, but it is not without fault. Depending on the nib size and ink choice, if you use fountain pens in your Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal, you may see ghosting or bleed through. Yikes!
To avoid that happening, Kara and I have put together 5 pens and 5 inks that will minimize these effects in your journal and help you make a beautiful and useful BuJo totally tailored to you. Kara is going to take on the pens, and I (Madigan) will take on the ink!

After watching Brian’s video, I decided to go with the EF nib — knowing full well that the line weight would be similar to my Medium Pilot Metro. I keep my Fountain K inked up with Iroshizuku Ku-Jaku and use it mainly for headers in my Bullet Journal. The Fountain K comes in parts, meaning that you get to mix and match to create a truly custom pen. They range from $75 to $125 depending on your combination choices.
