Rated 5 out of 5 by from A-ma-zing paper This is super thin paper... and yet, it withstands even my most saturated ink that usually bleeds through everything (a mix of Noodler's Black Swan in Australian Roses and Pilot Namiki Blue). Ink takes forever and a half to dry on it, BUT it doesn't bleed through at all! It does show through, but nothing more than that, and I'm using this super-bleed combo using a flex nib that I do flex! Japanese paper really is something else! Moreover, the paper feels very smooth while using it (depending on what's the surface underneath it, actually, because of how thin it is). On a side note, this paper wrinkles very easily because of how thin it is, but if you're being careful it shouldn't be a problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Paper! I bought this paper a month ago for the use in handmade refills I made for a Midori style notebook. The Tomoe River Paper is a slightly off white color so if that will bother you this might not be the paper for you but I don't mind. Tomoe is somewhere between the thinness of standard printer paper and tissue paper so a single sheet feels quite fragile but I have not had any problems with tearing. The most important feature of this paper is that it is both very thin as I mentioned above and it writes incredibly well even with my very wet Lamy 2000 with medium nib. The ink does show through a lot but I still don't mind writing on both sides of a page. This paper served my purpose incredibly well!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice paper However.... A penpal sent me some to try since I didn't want to spend money for unknown paper thats a bit expensive. I tried it with almost 20 ink samples and bottles that I have (most from Goulet) and with 6 or 8 fountain pens and a dip pen with a flex nib. This is what I experienced. Due to writing styles, surfaces, and such your experience may be different. Below are the dry time experience and other notes. I first tried Noodler's Inks Bad Blue heron and and Black Eel. Using Monteverde Regatta 'M' nib, Jinhao X750 'M' nib and dip pen. I love Noodler's ink and was really disappointed that this performed the worst of all the inks. I should have timed it more precisely but it took well over 10 minutes (closer to 20) for it to at a no longer smudging although maybe not completely dry. I had excellent experience with J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir and 1670 Stormy Grey drying very quickly. It dried the quickest of all the inks I tried using a TWSBI Diamond 580 and Dip pen. Pelikan Edelstein Topaz, Omas Black and Lamy Black were right behind J. Herbin in term of dry times. Which was follow by Diamine (see below), Private Reserve Gray Flannel, Pilot Iroshizku Moonlight The most interesting thing was that inks on Tomoe River paper have a sheen that I have seen when I used the same ink with with other papers. In particular, Iroshizku Moonlight had a pronounced reddish sheen/highlight. Lamy black had one that was very visible with a lope. We all know about J. Herbin Stormy Grey but it seemed to be more pronounced with this paper. If I didn't mention a specific ink it was because there was noting special of note. expect standard dry times and properties. Since I like Goulet Pens I've limited this review to products available on this site. I used: INKS: Diamine Autumn Oak, Antique Copper, Merlot, Oxblood, Sherwood Forest, Eclipse De Atramentis Johann Sebastian Bach J. Herbin Eclat de Saphir, 1670 Stormy Grey Lamy Black Noodlers Bad Blue Heron, Black Eel Omas Black Private Reserve Grey Flannel Pelikan Edelstein Topaz Pilot Iroshizuku Moonlight (Tsuki-yo) Rohrer & Klingner Alt-Goldgrun PENS Jinhao X750 Lamy Safari 1.9 MM nib Monteverde Regatta Medium nib Noodler's Ahab with Goulet Stub 1.1 nib Noodler's Konrad Noodler's flex nib Pilot Metropolitan nib that comes with pen TWSBI Diamond 580 fine nib nameless dip pen with equally nameless flex nib. I am not affiliated in any way with the Goulet's or the Goulet Pen Co. I'm Just a nerd that got carried away with testing.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Really White I was aware the white wasn't a bright white, but it's not that close at all. (See photo of Tomoe River package of white on top of regular copy paper.) Too bad, as the ink shading performance is superior. Dry times were unusually long for some wetter ink/pen combinations.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great great paper I bought this specifically for the J.Herbin Emerald ink. This paper makes a HUGE difference and I love it. It is great for writing letters and brings out the aspects of the ink like no other paper I have found.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Paper For Fountain Pen at this time. This paper is wonderful. What else can one say except superb. All the brand needs are notebooks and they will be poised to put Moleskin out of business. I put the paper onto a clipboard and just write, and write. The wonderful packaging by Goulet Pens ensures this paper arrives in perfect condition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I make excuses to use this, even to the point of cutting the sheets down to use as "scrap" paper. Unreservedly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will purchase again Although I am a devotee of Original Crown Mill stationary, the Tomoe River stationary is excellent for someone who uses fountain pens and still writes snail mail letters. I've used a variety of pens and inks with no problems. Black inks can show through slightly but not so much as to render the page unreadable.
