Fountain pens and bleedthrough

I am sure this question gas been asked before but which is the best paper to not bleed through fountain pen ink - in particular my Mont black. I have a Lamy safari which does not cause any problems but the Mont Blanc bleeds through most things. I am looking for a diary that I can use my Mont Blanco with. Any ideas please?

I have a couple of rhodia (colorama?) Notebooks - no bleedthrough at all from any of my fountain pens. I use an Oxford Project book (orange cover) at work and again no bleed through.

Clairefontaine paper is generally very good - moleskine notebooks are absolutley appalling!!

Thanks Happy.

I agree Moleskine is rubbish - even rollerball bleeds through.

I will have a look at

What ink are you using? I use a bottle of blue Waterman and I dont notice much of a bleed problem on writing papers over 80gms.

Nestinghedgehog : I dont use Moleskine but I am a big fan of Chubbypineapple Notebooks. They never let me down.
