Time for my first review. It is a semi handwritten one, so excuse the little smudges. They are not a fault of the paper but of me being a lefty m(_ _)m
Maruman Mnemosyne ring notebook, 5mm ruling
The writing/ruled part is 13x21 cm. I bought the notebook with 5mm ruling but there is also a blank version. The grid is only printed on one side of the sheets and the pages have a perforated line for ripping out the pages -> as the name suggests its main purpose is for writing little notes.
The paper is a little beige with a dash of greyish green and I would say it is about 80g/mē. There is some showthrough, no bleedthrough, and almost no feathering - I have the feeling that there is less feathering than with my 90g/mē Clairefontain paper! The paper is as smooth but not as smooth as Clairefontaine.
The have a pretty strong cardboard back so you use it even when there is no table available.
Did I mention that it looks pretty nice ^_^
Price of admission: 525 yen for 70 sheets, so it is on the expensive side.
Would I buy it again: Nice for business meetings, but too expensive for everyday writing.
