    Default Tomoe River paper

    Given the fact it's on the thin side, has anyone ever put it in a 3 ring binder and used it without it tearing?

    I use it in A5 6-ring binders, which works fine for my purposes. If you’re thinking about letter-sized sheets, I’d be a bit dubious about durability without hole reinforcements. For sheets that large, I use a Japanese 30-hole binder and corresponding hole punch, which work beautifully. But it wouldn’t be a casual switch. Hole reinforcements are cheap.

    I was intending use hole reinforcements. It would be letter sized, yes.

    No, but due to the recent shortage of other paper, we kept Tomoe tablets in the bathroom.

    There is a 68gsm thicker version that would probably work better than the traditional 52gsm thin version.

    I confess to having never tried Tomoe River paper due to concerns about its long-term durability. There's a perception it might wrinkle with excessive handling over time.

    I have books printed with the thinner TR paper. It’s often used for dictionaries which get a little more regular use than the average book. It holds up, though pages do get folded over.

    I agree with Chrissy which I was also about to mention as well. The 68 gsm version is the one I prefer for larger sheets, longer writing/drawing sessions or wetter medium.

    Yes, it is thin but it perfectly manages to allow all nib sizes from 1.5 mm to Japanse EF nibs without features and no bleed. I love to use it in cream colour.
