White Lake, MI Flag: Started by Arts11Jan 15 Like the thread title states, the pages are bound by glue with a taped spine. Posted 16 January – It wasn’t that expensive so I figured I could seriees it. Remember me This is not recommended for shared computers. I’m in the process of resolving this issue with JetPens [not affiliated], and hopefully I can get some sort of refund on the difference or something. I always take a smaller sized one with me as a travel journal and Kokuo have never had problems despite a lot of abuse.
Despite the fact that the product description says 40 sheets, it only comes with 30 sheets. In terms of marketing, you get a snazzy cover and some factually questionable claims about how students who pass the Tokyo University entrance exams tend to take notes. Kokuyo Campus Notes are my favorite paper. Please log in to reply.
Serles binding is extremely sturdy and so are the covers. Also, when people recommend “Kokuyo Campus Notes,” which item exactly are they referring to? seeries

Posted 17 January – You really should post this in the Reviews forum too! I’ve forgotten my password. I believe a notebook, no matter its cover design or construction, is only worth as much as its paper, and luckily, the Kokuyo doesn’t disappoint.
At the very least, I hope they acknowledge the mistake and adjust it on their website. They are very hardy notebooks.
Has anyone tried Kokuyo Campus Todai Series Pre-Dotted Adhesive-Bound Notebooks?
Posted 21 January – Apica is usually smoother, but otherwise the construction is of similar quality to Kokuyo. I’m looking forward to trying them out.
I’m a couple dollars short of free shipping at JetPens [not affiliated, etc. The Fountain Pen Network.
Of course the various notebook sizes from each manufacturer have slightly different paper, so YMMV. It seems pretty strong too: I have one or two that by all rights should be destroyed by now, and would be if they were the typical offering koluyo Staples or Office Depot.
The page size is referred to as “Semi-B5,” so it’s smaller than a piece of computer paper, but bigger than a sheet serjes true B5 paper.
The slight feedback is why I prefer it over Apica, despite Apica’s better construction stitched and lays flat, paper smooth like Clairefontaine.
The “regular” seriew have dots only on the topmost and bottommost rows. At the same time, I consider Kokuyo’s paper czmpus be smooth so you won’t be “dragging” your nib across seires pages either.

Before I checkout though, has anyone tried it before?
The underlying messages and the assumption that they’ll resonate with the target demographic are troubling: This might be important in Japan but if you look at international university rankings you might not want to pursue the same methods yourself, if getting into university fampus what you’re aiming at. Although I haven’t used this specific notebook, I just wanted to chip in to say that Kokuyo papers are from my experience the finest available.
For comparison, it’s got similar dimensions to a composition book, but it’s cover is just a little bit narrower and a bit taller [however it’s much thinner given the difference in page count]. Hopefully someone can answer this cammpus soon so I can checkout. Edited by Arts11, 20 January – Posted 20 January – Apica and Tsubame are also good if you can find them.

Rules – Market Watch Rules. Please be so kind to add fountainpennetwork. General Help Classifieds 1: I find both Apica and Maruman to “open up” more after use than Kokuyo, which stays flatter and more compact. You can seires the best product in the world but, if no one knows about it and isn’t compelled to try it, it’ll sit on the shelf.
Maruman is unfortuantely very prone to bleed-through.
