Tomoe River Paper

The 52gsm paper is incredibly thin, and very fountain pen friendly. This paper shows off the sheen and shimmer in inks unlike any other paper can do.

Our Tomoe River paper is the same Tomoe River paper that's used in the Hobonichi Techo. We use the same 52 gsm paper as the Hobonichi.

Fountain pen enthusiasts who favor shading ink, those that create subtle color gradations as ink is laid on the paper, will appreciate how the paper shows off subtle color variations. Sheening inks also perform well as pools of color will sit on the surface of the paper and when dry will create the reflective look so many fountain pen users love. It’s important to be patient and let the paper fully dry to prevent smudging, especially when using sheening or metallic inks. Click here to read our blog post about Tomoe River Paper

The card book

The perfect little note pads for rubber stamping and the 5 pack means they get tucked into every folio. Rec’d in a week, as usual. Thanks Galen Leather for another wonderful product.

Tiny enough to bring anywhere.

A practical intersection of my fondness for notebooks and tiny things. It can easily fit into pockets and pencil bags, great for jotting down notes or letting the kids draw in if they get bored in waiting areas. I wasn't expecting the paper to feel so thin, but it doesn't feel flimsy, and more importantly, the ink doesn't bleed through to the other side of the paper (I use a fine nib fountain pen), so I can use both sides. It does show through a bit, but no more than with the 80 gsm paper I typically use. It's very smooth, and a pleasure to write on. Now I am tempted to find a correspondingly tiny pen.

Little Stationary

I bought these to go with my EDC Wallet. They fit perfectly and sure do come in handy. You never know when you need a piece of paper!

Ok

It's ok... but the pages are separating too easly from the back.

You dont know you need them till you use them

I got these on a whim as I added these to the cart. Have been using the Rhodia No. 11 as my pocket scribbler for some years now. And there were mixed reactions when I saw them in the packages. Size of a credit card, these are super sleek and given they are TR52, hold a lot of pages in a very thin stack. Super smooth to write on, tearing did cause me a little concern (the perforations on one of the books was under the binding), but its been my go to product for making lists, taking notes on the move. Definitely becoming a part of my daily carry.

Great for Shopping Lists

These 5 packs of pads are perfect for slipping into the pocket and jotting down quick to-do lists and shopping lists. Just flip the top open and cross your groceries off your list. A great compact size, perfect for a jeans pocket.
