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

Well tested and tested well

I've been using these Galen Leather Everyday Books for a while now. Daily for well over a year. The paper is exceptional: thin, smooth, attractive, perfect with fountain pens. They are thin enough to tuck in a purse or backpack. I LOVE the enclosed guides and blotter and I prefer the box packaging to the previous pouch. I use about 1 per month and buy a years worth in January so I'm prepared. Highly recommend.

Oh no, I like tomoe river now...

I brought this to see what all the fuss as for tomoe river paper. I've tried cheaper alternatives to it usually recommended, and wasn't impressed. On a whim I brought this along with the purple Kaweco, and really glad I did. I now see what all the fuss is about, and oh no. Oh no no, I've developed an expensive habit. The sheening! I can actually see the glitter some of my inks use! And it shades so nicely! Aaaaa I can't go back.

What really converted me was the lovely care Galen leather put in with this set. The blotter, guides and cute little box were very much appreciated, and really helped the writing experience too.

Excellent Travelers Notebook Refill - Passport Size

I like this passport Size even more than Regular Size Refill von Galen, because they have even more pages than Midori lightweight paper refill passport size. It is a perfect item if you want a thick travelers notebook. And the included brown fabric pouch is also beautiful and well made!

A No-Brainer

These nicely made thin Din A5 notebooks - like all Galen notebooks - still contain the OLD Tomoe River 52g/qm paper. The old version of this famous paper has become hard to get, and in my opinion, it’s sooo much better than the new version.
So if you are a fountain pen lover, grab some of this incredible paper here while it lasts. When it‘s gone, it‘s gone forever.
The books open quite flat, which makes writing in them even more enjoyable.
Although they are pretty thin, they do fit into the DIN A 5 Galen notebook leather sleeve.
Of course, they are extraordinarily pretty without a leather sleeve as well.
Mine did not come in a fabric pouch but in a beautiful black cardboard box/envelope with magnetic closure.
Highly recommended!

Awesome paper

A perfect fit for my folio and a great paper for use with pencils, pens, ink, you name it.
If you treasure the writing experience, try these pads. They're awesome.

Everyday notebook ~ regular size

Tomoe river kağıtlarının kalitesi zaten belli. Regular boyutlu bir defteri ilk kullanmışım olacak ve boyutunu çok kullanışlı buldum. Dikişleri hatasız ve iyi görünüyor. Paketleme her zaman olduğu gibi mükemmel, defter boyutuna uygun kumaş fermuarlı çantasında, kılavuz ve kurutma kağıtları ile birlikte geliyor. Süreç de sonuç da tatmin edici idi. Harika paketleme ve Türkiye'ye özgü hediyeler için teşekkürler.
