    @niels The Clairefontaine DCP looks very well behaved.

    We have some very good options listed here. I continue to practice with the Kokuyo KB and have no issues with it. While not as smooth as Rhodia, itís smooth, and not toothy at all. I also havenít encountered much in the way of feathering using a variety of inks (Diamine Oxford Blue, Pilot Shin Kai, J. Herbin Bleu des Profondeurs, and Waterman Mysterious Blue).

    I do not recommend the Hammermill Printer Paper, Premium Color 28 lb Copy Paper for fountain pens as it feathers a lot with various inks (not just boutique inks). Otherwise, the paper is lovely, bright, and has a pleasant texture. Wicks ink almost like a paper napkin. Amazon reviews disagreed but it feathered badly with think and thin inks, flex and fine writing.

    Try your local paper merchant that supplies local printers or thepapermillstore.com and look for Domtar Cougar Smooth or Super smooth or Digital. If they don't have Domtar Cougar ask what they would consider as a substitute.

    I looked on Amazon.co.uk to find the Kokuyu KB paper. It is very expensive. I'm sure a cheaper US printer paper can be found that is smooth and fountain pen friendly.
    My printer isn't always 100% reliable at printing and every so often it screws up a piece of paper. I couldn't pay the price of Kokoyu KB here that's for sure.

    Wow! Itís around twice the cost in the UK as it is in the US. If I lived in the UK I would certainly look for an alternative.

    I don't have any experience with either Domtar or Xerox branded paper, but as far as I know Domtar makes the Xerox paper. So that might be another route to find it.
