Everything I hoped for! The 500-pager is remarkably thin and the paper quality is great. Shipping was prompt.
The opacity of the 68 GSM Tomoe River paper is perfect for this notebook. In the first few pages I've used Pilot Iroshizuku Ama-iro, a peacock blue ink full of character, as well as a bit of Fisher Space Pen ink. In time I'll be trying out old favorites: Noodler's, Lamy, Waterman, Sailor, and Parker.
Maybe some justification could be made to get a 300-page hardcover soonish. Hmm.
Great notebook, obviously love the paper, but especially love the number of pages that Odyssey crammed in this masterpiece. I use these notebooks for work planning and this is the only way I have been able to get more that a quarter into one book. Will certainly by buying again.
I really love this journal - using it for my 2023 bullet journal and so far it's absolutely perfect! Lovely paper, lays flat, and has enough pages for me to fit ALLLL the things I want in this year's planner/journal! I will definitely be buying another one!
As always, I start my planner/journal shopping early, and I knew I wanted something in a bigger size but with good paper, and more than 368/384 pages which is what most "big" journals have. This hit every checkbox. The cover is a fantastic "canvas" like texture, and despite being 500 pages, it does lay flat when you open it. At any point in the book. I won't be digging into this until 2023, but I am already super excited to fill this notebook up.
The best paper for use with
fountain pen with a beautiful cover.
I bought one Odyssey Notebook, the 500 page, A5 Tomoe River dot grid book. Wanted to see what they were like before buying more. The book is wonderful. The sewn binding is sturdy. But the book is made so that even brand new pages lay flat when open. The pages are numbered. Printed dot grid is dark enough but not too dark--perfect for me. I am very, very pleased. And icing on the cake, the book was well packaged and arrived in perfect condition. I don't think careless handling by delivery people could have damaged it. Excellent service. Fast service. Top quality product. Thank you.
I love these notebooks so much! The paper and the binding are immaculate! I’m impressed by the sturdiness of the soft cover too! Everything about it is perfect and I can’t wait to fill it up so I have an excuse to buy more!
The customer service is also excellent and the handwritten note was such a nice touch. <3
Great binding on these Tamoi River notebooks. Great quality, would buy again in a heartbeat!
