September 21, 2011
My absolute favorite notebook. I've been a student for 25 years and am very particular.

Great:

-The dots make creating outlines, doing math, drawing figures, making physics diagrams, and mapping organic chemistry a joy
-The paper is thick and smooth
-They stand up to a lot of abuse with very few signs of wear
-they work wonderfully with every pen and pencil I have tried, and hold up to repeated erasures

Not so great?

-They are pricy for students
-I wish they came in an 80 page version

Please restock.

This is the best paper I have ever written on. It's perfect for fountain pens. Worth every cent!

Paper quality is so good! There is little shadowing and my pens move so smoothly. I only wish that they made the B5 ones with the same paper (weight wise) and with more sheets.

Very good quality notebook but it needs more pages - about 128 should be good enough

I love these notebooks.
Even though they are only 40 pages they hold quite a bit of information.
I used it for my organic chem class and was able to fit an entire semester's worth of material.
The paper is smooth which allows the pens and pencils to glide.
No bleed through, though I did not use fountain pens on it.
The thing is, I apply a lot of pressure when I write, so if you are like me you will see letter dents on the other side but not as noticeable as with cheap paper.
On cheap thin paper I tend to be able to see the letter dents after turning a couple of pages. Glad that is not the case with these.
Please don't discontinue selling these.

Great for math! Paper is smooth and heavy enough for a F or XF fountain pen. Enough tooth for a pencil.

When will there be a restock? This is a must for any student. It's a huge bummer that there's none in stock when college is just around the corner. I don't want to settle for any other notebook than this one but I do need notebooks for class. Jeez, I'm bummed.

I love these notebooks, I cannot get enough of them. Just would like a little pocket in the back, but I made one out of the last page. They're awesome.

A disappointment!

I can't agree with the other reviewers on this one. I bought this notebook for use with fountains pens and have been thoroughly disappointed.

The paper in the notebook I received does not react well with fountain pen ink. Unlike Clairefontaine and Rhodia papers, which are coated so that ink dries on the surface and is not absorbed by the paper, the paper in the Kokuyo notebook soaks ink into the paper. What happens after that has confounded me ever since I started writing in it.

At first I thought it might be moisture or oils from my hand causing the effect, so I started using a double-folded sheet of copier paper to mask my hand. No such luck. At random spots on the paper, the ink feathers so severely that letters become illegible blobs. It is as if the paper had been sprinkled with water and allowed to partially dry before one started writing.

This effect occurs no matter what size nib I use. From fine to medium fine, medium and broad, the ink randomly feathers to illegibility from page to page. Jinhao, Faber-Castell, TWSBI, Pilot, Platinum, Noodler's, Pelikan, Acme, Edison, Sheaffer's...Pen brand doesn't make a difference. Ink brand doesn't seem to matter much either. I use mostly Diamine and J. Herbin inks, with one pen filled with Waterman Serenity Blue. They all do the same thing.

I will finish the notebook, write it out, so to speak, but I will not be buying another one. I probably won't purchase any more Kokuyo products either.
