Kin Kaku Den Paper Review

I confess, I get a little weird and rambly in this review. I don't think I've ever used a more elegant paper, even with pens that decided to run out of ink. Check out the video.

I really, truly, intensely dislike this paper. It is so textured that I feel like I have to drag my pen across the sheet. Because of all the fibers, it looks like it feathers like crazy, although it's just the rough texture that makes the lines look uneven. It feels weird to the touch. It turns even the biggest fire hose of a pen into a 15-year old Sharpie you've left uncapped at the bottom of the drawer. It's not good with shading. Forget sheen. The flipside of the paper is, if at all possible, even worse than the front.  And to add insult to injury, it's more than twice as expensive than any other decent Japanese paper. Urgh. I'd rather write on toilet paper, thank you very much. 

What is this money pit obsession hole I have fallen into?

That was my primary impression too. Even the texture makes the line from the fountain pens look like dried-up felt-tip pen. I'm struck by how often the video reviewer comments 'oh, my pen picked today to misbehave' or 'I'm running out of ink on this pen too'. Maybe it's not that all your pens decided to dry up today! Maybe it's that the paper is terrible!

I played this video for my boyfriend. He looked at me when you said you had feelings for this paper...mainly because I was nodding that I understood your feelings! :)
