  1. The Paper Plane – Endless Recorder A5 Notebook (dotted) A while ago I reviewed the Endless Recorder A5, which is a great fountain pen friendly notebook with 68 gsm Tomoe River paper. With the somewhat heavier 68 gsm paper the pages are a bit less flimsy, which suits me better for an EDC notebook that gets intensive use at the office. And you keep the advantages of Tomoe River paper: the notebook can handle practically any ink & nib size with close to zero see-through and bleed-through. Here I give you an update to my previous review, where I examine the dotted ver

    Tomoe River Blank Books

    I'm offering blank books with Tomoe River paper at PaperForFountainPens.com This paper has inspired me to write more than I ever did before, and I've had to create the product line that I wanted for my own use. Now I'm sharing the results with you. Happy writing! —Jay
  3. The Paper Plane – Endless Recorder A5 Notebook I've been enjoying this little corner of the web for some time now, mainly focusing on inks and pens. But these are more or less useless without the humble paper or notebook that will let you capture your thoughts. So here comes the "Paper Plane", where I review some of the paper and notebooks that I've enjoyed using over the years. Today's guest is the Endless Recorder A5 notebook, a minimalist notebook with some very fine paper. This notebook is produced by Endless Works, a company that clearly states its focus on simpli
  4. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-IzMDZRypqcE/ViQ20CCjxLI/AAAAAAAACag/EETndYJjdRA/s1600/IMG_9214_R.jpg Greetings, FPN fellows! After being away from making journals for a while, I wanted to show you these books that I made some months ago for a FPN friend, LuMa, since I will return to my work space. I am very excited to contact all the members who have patiently waited for me. Finally, I'd like to show you some of my past work that I had not been able to present to you before. Some months ago, LuMa contacted me for a custom order. She originally wanted a journal, but after showing her all the o
  5. I came across this notebook on Amazon recently and just got one. For $27 plus shipping and tax it seems like quite a good value. The official name is Wonderland222 (the seller) WonderPlanner A5 Daily Notebook. As my title says, it has 368 pages (3 for key/index and 365 numbered) of 52 gram per square meter cream-colored Tomoe River paper. It is printed with a 4mm graph grid in a light brown color and has line as well as page numbers and a date/signature block in an upper corner of each numbered page. The notebook is about 12mm thick and has a thin but fairly stiff cardboard cover clad in som

    25 Inks, 3 Papers

    HP LJ 32 lbs, more readily available in some parts of the world, does take a little while to dry: Fabriano: dries more quickly. Tomoe River, great thin paper.
  7. Hi guys. A while back I got a sample of tomoe River paper from cult pens, and I absolutely love it. It's so smooth, it makes my Rhodia paper feel rubbish! So what I'm wondering is, what is the best way of getting tomoe River paper in the UK? You can get it on Amazon but it's VERY expensive. Around £15 for 100 sheets the last time I checked. Is buying in bulk an option, and if so where can I get it from? Thanks!

    For The Tomoe Fans

    Just receive an email notification from GLP Creations. Their 192 page 68gsm Tomoe River Author Notebook is now available. Dot or 7mm lined.
  9. I've seen with one of my wing sung 3008 pens that there's always hard starts on cheaper paper. If i press hard on the nib, the flow resumes but is a bit too wet. It does not write with it's own weight. This led me to think it had baby's bottom since the tines appeared aligned. However, when I use Tomoe River paper, it writes the first time every time. It also delivers a wet line, not a faint one. So is it a feed issue? I've never had this kind of a problem before. There's no issues with the feed keeping up with Tomoe River. I'm willing to experiment on this pen as well and would love any a

    Diamine - Steel Blue

    Hi folks, I have decided to finally post a review and not just spy around Diamine Steel Blue is easily one of my favourite Diamine colours, it's that happy-teal-colour family which we cannot get enough of I took couple of notebooks and written a page to demonstrate what the ink looks like on each paper. Please do let me know if there are any other papers you'd like to see...so far we have Leuchtturm, Rhodia White & Ivory and Tomoe River. Enjoy! Mishka (^_~)
  11. Hello everyone! Today I’d like to share with you a very big book I made last month. The style chosen was German Springback. It had to be A4 size and 4 cm of thickness of the paper. My first thought was: “oh my, this is going to be heavy!”. The paper chosen was Fedrigoni. This was the stack of paper I used, after cutting it to A3 size to fold it. The sheets were folded and sewn. Glue on the spine and some trimming done, it was rounded. Then I applied some backing cloth to reinforce the spine. I finished the spine by applying a couple of bookmarks, some headbands I sew off the book and

    Tomoe River Longevity

    Hello All, Just a random inquiry here. As my love affair with Tomoe River continues, I looked at another pristine sheet of Tomoe River in my Seven Seas Journal and can see the translucent areas on the paper, holding it up in front of a dark object. I'm wondering, does anybody know whether Tomoe River has archival qualities? Will the paper be around, decades, or centuries from now? A part of me wants it to self destruct, because I don't want my private thoughts to be around after I'm gone. But I don't have the heart to burn my journals or shred them to dispose of them forever.
  13. This might not be the right place for my topic (I wasn't sure if I should have put it on Market Watch, but that was closed to starting a new topic), but I wanted to confirm with some of you who may have tried it that this is a reliable site. I got some Tomoe River paper samplers from JetPens and absolutely fell in love with the paper. The website has a great price for 3, 100-sheet correspondence pads that I was considering getting. Any experiences with this site are greatly appreciated!

    Best A5-Sized Notebook?

    Hi all, I've been sneakily reading the posts on this site for a while, but it's the first time I actually write a post (except for the FB page). I've been looking for the best notebook for journaling and such for some years now, and I figured I would share my experiences and disappointments, and hear about others' thoughts on this. I started using Moleskines (classic, large notebook, hardcover, black) way before I was using fountain pens. I had to switch to something else when I started using FPs due to heavy feathering and bleeding. (And in the case of MB toffee brown, discoloration.) But i

    Diamine - Majestic Blue

    Hi folks, Diamine Majestic Blue is one of those inks that sheens like a champion Why did no one tell me about this ink earlier? The colour is a true blue, it flows very nicely even with the finest nibs. Sheen does take over and often covers the entire letter. Tomoe River is the best paper to display sheen, but this ink does show on other papers too. Majestic Blue is not waterproof; it does not wash away completely, so I would happily use it to address envelopes. It would make a perfect every day ink. Strange coming from teal/green/orange person but I really do like this one. What do yo
  16. I filled out Tomoegawa's online inquiry form on the main company website yesterday, and haven't heard back... Maybe I am just being impatient, but has anyone here purchased a bulk order of Tomoe River FP paper directly from the manufacturer before? Is there a quicker way of contacting them about such things? Or perhaps a reseller in Japan who is known for selling bulk/wholesale orders? TIA for any suggestions!
  17. Where can I buy a case of Tomoe River paper? I don't mind importing from Japan!
  18. I posted a couple of weeks ago about the Robert Oster ink exclusive that will be a part of the Hippo Noto Kickstarter campaign, because I was lucky enough to get a sample of it to test out. But I'm impatient because I'd really (really) like to try out the notebooks. I go through journals at a fast clip because mine are a way to capture what's going on in my life, the things occupying my brain, any data points I want to take note of, etc. etc. Anyway, I go through paper. Also because I love playing with inks (oh, those colors) and that takes paper. None shows off inks better than Tomoe River, a
  19. Hi All, First time posting on here. I have recently become fascinated with the fountain pen and paper realm. Curious if anyone has seen my dream notebook? !!WANTED!! B5 Threadbound Hardcover 90+ sheets FP Friendly paper (obvious no?) Dot Grid Multiple ribbons Numbered pages 81 - 100 gsm 10-20 perforated pages If not? How do I find a manufacturer to create this unicorn notebook? I appreciate all your advice in advance. Best, Oscar
  20. Hi folks, I have just finished my A5 Taroko dot notebook when it hit me...I don't know a lot about the brand or the makers... Quick nosy Google search took me to their Etsy and Facebook page, but that did not satisfy my curiosity. Stationery world is very personal, the notebooks are a hit, so I have reached out to Steven to share something of his background and love of stationery. I hope you will find this interesting...I had a great time chatting and geeking out with him. Enjoy! Interview Tell me a little about your background. What was the impulse to start making your own notebooks?
  21. Hey pals this is a group buy/interest check for Tomoe River A4 52gsm paper (white from here: http://global.rakuten.com/en/store/auc-shikisai/item/50602/ ) It costs $105 CAD + ~$150 CAD shipping (TBA) for 4000 quality pieces. Which comes to $31.87 per batch of 500 sheets. PRICE LADDER (per 500 sheets at each tier=4000 sheets.) 1) $31.87 2) $22.50 So ideally, we get more local pals to sign up, we get a better deal . Feel free to split ream costs with your local friends as well! This paper is super nice, smooth, & light; I'm interested in it for book-binding and making my own s

  23. Notes - Having produced a nicely formatted article in LibreOffice Writer, I found that the only way to transfer that to the FPN without losing the formatting was to save the pages as JPG, and attach the images. The photos of the products are arranged alphabetically as they are first mentioned, so you know what to look for if you want to get any of the products. I will try to add some scans of representative bleeding and feathering examples.
  24. Hi, I am planning to import Tomoe River paper from Japan. In case any of you are interested, let me know and i can perhaps order for you as well. Specifications: Size: A4 Colour: White/Cream (as majority decides) Thickness: 68gsm (normal is 52gsm, this is more expensive and has less showthrough as compared to 52gsm) Expected Price: INR 11-12 per sheet I will only place the order once i have confirmation of people taking 4000 sheets. Edit: To avoid any confusion, this group buy is only for Indians living in India. I don't have Paypal to accept money from abroad and neither do i want to
