... Kokuyo Campus High Grade Cyo-Bo Paper ...

Recommended Posts

This is a review of KOKUYO CAMPUS High Grade CYO-BO paper


Comes in A4 size

50 sheets only

Punched with 30 holes along one margin



Its stated as 100gsm

and listed as high grade paper

That is the article/product serial number




Made by KOKUYO in Japan




The backside of the packet









The inktestpage.

The paper is off-white





No feathering






I am impressed that it can take the SAILOR Red Brown ink written by a PILOT Custom <FA> nib.

It keeps its strokewidth of a lot of ink deposited on the paper. Especially the last 3 strokes.



The reverse side.

No bleedthru



Slight showthru due to thinness of paper and dark inks




Pretty costly.

Paid SGD$10 for a packet of 50 sheets.

I think its expensive


But the paper is super smooth. :thumbup:

And everything you expect of Japanese quality.

Thanks for the review!


I recently purchased a variety of Japanese notebooks. The paper is impressive. I'm offering a Sampler for those interested in trying these papers. Some packets are still available.


It looks like several will become my go-to paper for notes and journaling.

Kokuyo is good paper. While I have not tried the CYO-BO grade, I have used the semi-B5 bound notebooks and the loose-leaf filler for B5s in Kokuyo's translucent 26-ring binders.


The paper is a little thin which accounts for very mild showthrough but it is great to write with. In my area, Rhodia is not always available. When it is, the pads are reasonably priced but the notebooks are quite expensive for the number of pages they offer.


Kokuyo gives us an alternative. Compared to Singpore, I think the prices in Manila are a tad better. The Semi-B5 notebooks are at US$1.50 each, and a 100-page pack of B5 loose leaf is at US$3.00.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
