    Default US Source for Basildon Bond?

    Wondering if anyone knows of an online (US) source for Basildon Bond other than Amazon?

    Many thanks!

    My research indicates it is no longer imported into the USA and I was unable to find any old stock in the states. You will likely be limited to used packets on eBay.com as they may be listed by a USA seller from time to time (I see none at the moment).

    Try Amazon.co.uk. You will find it there. Paying for the postage should be an acceptable cost for having what you want or need.

    Thanks so much! I just keep hoping someone will have it in the states, but alas...

    I had just heard it was a fabulous, fountain-pen friendly paper. I was finally able to get some. Unfortunately it was only the smaller tablet and envelopes and not appropriate for the LONG letters I tend to write, lol. Now I'm on the hunt for B5 lined letter paper from Midori. Life is a constant search for me it seems!

    Here ya go, Sheila!

    I've done business with jetpens and they are very reliable, especially if you are looking for Japanese products. They are based in the Bay Area, California. BTW, when I first quickly glanced at your title I thought it said "US Source for Basilisk Blood." Too much Harry Potter exposure, I guess.

    All the Best.

    Lol to Harry Potter. Thanks for the info. I am (much to the dismay of my credit card) a happy customer of Jet Pens and they are indeed amazing! Their customer service is fantastic. I have ordered the Midori from them but now am trying to find one that is a larger size. Evidently this one, (B5) isn't generally imported to the US. I used to get them from Nanami Paper but they have exhausted their supply and aren't restocking. Leave it to me to always want the hardest thing to find. Thanks for checking in.

    nanamipaper.com has the Midori B5 listed, but out of stock. Might be worth dropping them a note to see if it will come back. I've ordered a number of times from them for Japanese paper, good folks.

    Hi Jon,

    I ordered their last B5. Dave has said he doesn't plan to restock...I hate that he seems to be paring down his products, I ordered from him regularly. The B5 is a really nice product for lengthy letters. Thanks so much!

    Sheila--You might ask them if they would consider importing it. I asked them about a product once, and they got it in. So they might consider the Midori B5, too.

    Thanks Lady Onogaro. I have been in contact with JetPens. The one I want is evidently out of production or at least not showing up in inventory. They are hoping to introduce a new tablet from Midori fairly soon, hopefully in the B5. Hopeful!
