I know this is an old thread but having recently come across a ream of q connect bank paper I noticed the feel was similar to newsprint possibly even brown paper bags does anyone know whether the 'specially designed surface" contains silica or other abrasive partials to aid in making carbon copies that could potentially damage or wear down nibs at an accelerated rate?

It's lovely paper and behaves amazingly well with ink (id love to use it for my loose leaf journal, midori booklets or filo fax refills) but i am a little apprehensive to use it with my nibs.
I'm paranoid about nib wear to excessive degree though and it may be entirely unfounded

I've notice no adverse effects on any of my nibs with this wonderful paper. Great for refills and I've bought a rotary perforating cutter to give me the 'removable' bits at the end of the notebook.

That's good to hear :-)
It does seem well suited to refills even makes the thin branded sheets seem TOO thick and behaves a thousand times better

I have worked through a 500 sheet ream almost, and as the Captain says, not noticed any issues with nibs. 

 

HP Lovecraft wrote 100,000 letters and numerous novels with Fountain pens, and he apparently only wore out 5 nibs in his lifetime...... so i think you'd be pretty safe.

Just ordered a ream. I had been going to buy Tomoe River in order to make a diary for my Midori Traveller's Notebook, but this looks much better value! Thanks.

I've been using it in Fenner Crafts leather Midori-style covers, as well as the Midori themselves and it works out great value. I bought a rotary perforting cutter, so can even have the 'tear-off' facility as well!
