Review: Tomoe River Paper 68 GSM Notebook - Interested?

Review: Tomoe River Paper 68 GSM Notebook - Interested?
This is a half review. This is a sample notebook sent to me to check out. It's filled with Tomoe River, but not the 52 gsm variety we all know. This is 68 gsm - slightly thicker than the very crinkly 52 gsm. Please have a look and see if you'd be interested in a notebook like this. I'm not affiliated with the person who is interested in making these available, nor will I receive any of the proceeds. This is just to help out and help you out in case you'd be interested in a notebook and paper like this! If you would be interested in this paper (pricing details and all that will be available later, this is just about the paper still!), please leave a comment below and let me know!

ABOUT

Color: Off-White
Ruling: Blank

APPEARANCE

The notebook is not the final product, so I won't focus on that. It's a very nice midnight blue cover with rounded edges, and two bookmarks.

PERFORMANCE & FEEL

This paper is a lot less crinkly than the 52 gsm Tomoe River paper. Personally, I love that crinkle and think that's half its appeal, but some people hate it. If you're one of those people, this paper offers what Tomoe River offers: highlights shading, sheen, and no feathering.

Show through is lower than on Tomoe River, although I found bleed through to still happen. Not often, but it happens. Have a look at the images and you can assess for yourself! With normal use, bleed through should be very minimal. I really pushed it with wet writers, and a few flex nibs.

Good sheen,  no feathering, nice particles. I love filling this notebook up because it has that "written on paper" feeling. Delectable.

Would you be interested in a notebook with this paper? It should be priced at a comparable price to other notebooks of its size/type.
