What can you say, it’s Tome River paper. True to its rep.
Beautiful notebook! The paper is super nice and I’m really excited to use it!
This IS the notebook you've been looking for.
Each numbered page is a smooth, dot-grid dream! The vegan leather cover is like (of course, vegan) butter!
I use Odyssey Notebooks' B5 68GSM TOMOE RIVER NOTEBOOK for as my research notebooks. To the best of my knowledge, there is no other US-based notebook manufacturer that offers hardbound B5 notebooks with page numbers. Odyssey Notebooks' notebooks go even further by having high-quality Tomoe River paper and beautiful covers.
For me, a hardcover B5 is a sweet spot that fits easily in a bag and can be written on easily while sitting (even in a cramped space, like an airplane). The B5 size is large enough to fit in letter pages that are folded in half: e.g. a printed plane ticket or a conference agenda.
The paper takes ink well (e.g. Noodler's ink) and the dot grid has a light touch that doesn't get in the way. I can't stand notebooks where the lines/grids are printed in very dark ink that takes the focus away from your writing. The page numbers make it very easy to cross-reference earlier pages.
Having page numbers is a huge benefit for me. This means that I can use these notebooks to go through long calculations and cross-reference earlier pieces. I imagine this would also be a great fit for a bullet journal, recipe book, or any other type of notebook where you'll want an easy way to go back to earlier pages.
Details like a pocket for loose leaf paper, two bookmark ribbons, and an elastic band are welcome. The vegan leather covers are fetching and pleasant to touch.
If you like Leuchtturm1917 notebooks but wished there were a hardcover B5 version with a nicer cover, then you'll really enjoy Odyssey Notebooks' B5 Tomoe River notebook.
Odessey Notebooks continue to be an incredible product, with attention to detail, quick shipping and great pricing. My third order... that should speak for itself! Notebooks are archival quality- using to write memoirs!

I have been so busy writing in my new journal I completely forgot to leave a review! I saw this journal on Instagram and was intrigued because I love bigger than an A5 Journal. This journal is perfection! I can use my fountain pens in it, it shows off the unique qualities of the ink, it is a great size for me to write in and have enough room to say what I want. I am absolutely converted...this is the journal for me. Surprised at its affordability and lighting fast shipping too! I can't recommend this product enough! Beyond pleased and thrilled to have found this notebook.
Writing in these notebooks is smooth, no feathering. Quality paper and beautifully made.
Only thing that I would change is the amount of product I am able to buy ... I wish I could afford more ! Wonderful company, RAVE
Beautiful! I was so happy to find a nice, thick Tomoe River notebook in a B5 size. I opted for standard shipping and it still arrived lightning quick and packaged carefully. The notebook itself is really nice, the cover is gorgeous and the paper (of course) is excellent for fountain pens. The color of the Earth notebook is brighter and more green than it looks in the pictures on the website, but that's not really a problem for me as it looks wonderful either way.
This is the perfect notebook for writers and paper snobs. With fountain pen friendly paper it allows a multitude of useful areas. Practical additions with ribbon bookmarks, back pocket and of course an elastic closure. Let's not forget the sturdy but beautiful cover with a unique design.
I am so happy I got mine!
Amazing notebooks with great paper and stitching. So glad I grabbed 3 when I was at the DC show
