    Default Japanese papers and bleed through.....

    I use mostly water resistant / bullet proof inks. And I tend to marry my pens to their specific inks.
    Here is a comparison of several Japanese papers and their usability in my case.
    I hope it might help some people.
    Note some of the ink/nibs I use are extreme, for ex. Kung Te-Cheng and fude nib is not the best idea
    Polar Green is written with a Kanwrite flex nib. It works well with Midori with minor bleed through if I flex.
    General of the Armies with a Kaweco double broad, very wet.
    My favorite paper remains Midori and the runner up is Tomoe River 68 gr.
    My least favourite are Mnemosyne and Slalogy. They are way to smooth for my taste.
    Life paper is too rough. Midori cotton is too thin and not really suitable for inky business
    Scans:
    STALOGY Sorry for the Apache Sunset drops. If I have to choose between this and TR, I'd go the latter. I prefer the texture.

    MIDORi COTTON - Thin not the best paper for FP... It is stated it is best for drawing...
