One of the best papers for fountain pens if not the best (can be used with other pens too) available. I also use it to sketch and draw on this paper. Very smooth, perfect. Included in each pad is a lined sheet of paper which can be placed behind the blank white sheet as a guideline if want to write neat or cannot control a straight line.

Top paper.

No ink I have thus far used on this paper has feathered or bled through. It is excellent in that regard, and has a nice weight to it. However, it is extremely glossy, almost slick, in a way that I definitely did not anticipate. Rohrer and Klingner's old gold green ink on this paper almost feels like it doesn't take (It does. The low viscosity of the ink plus the smoothness of the paper just makes it feel like it won't.). Note that these observations are from a dip pen, not a fountain pen though. It's vastly better than regular printer paper. Just a warning that the surface is very slick.

Crisp and wonderfully smooth without appearing to be glossy. The texture is ideal for writing with fountain pens, and the A4 size is perfect for letter writing.

The pad is sorta falling apart and pages don't stay together. Other than that, it's the best paper I've used.

The paper has a gorgeous finish and would have been perfect if I'd needed something for letter writing. Triomphe's slick surface, however, meant that the nib of my 1.5 Rotring art pen skipped horribly. No matter how I played with the pen angle, the pressure, etc. this skipping along the letter edges could not be eliminated. The Pilot Plumex (a smaller nib) and the Pilot Parallel Pen (a wetter option) performed better, but the edge of their nibs still refused to stay in complete contact with the page. Before buying I read as much as possible, and inferred form reviews that both Triomphe and Tomoe River were the best options for this project I'm planning. I wish I'd gone with my gut and purchased the Tomoe River first. It works like a dream with no skipping issues on the horizon. Clairefontaine Triomphe was not a *bad* purchase, I just have to find a new use for it now which is kind of annoying.

TL;DR - Beautiful paper that is fantastic for normal fountain pens. If you plan on using italic/calligraphic nibs, buy Tomoe River instead.

Wonderfully smooth and heavy. I've never seen feathering or any kind of show/bleed through, even when I had a Nib Issue that dropped huge amounts of ink onto the page. There are times I write extra-long letters to friends just for an excuse to use this paper.
This paper is luscious!...

This paper is luscious! Smooth and my pen glides across it.
