The modern look and high quality construction makes this the perfect notebook for both work and personal projects.

The grid style paper is very versatile, and the cover material is extremely flexible while also being strong enough to hold up to months of use.

Why We Love It

We are so excited that the Kunisawa line is part of our Ink+Volt store. In fact, the brand's U.S. debut was right here at Ink+Volt. Like all things Kunisawa, you are truly getting a special product. Kunisawa notebooks are made with the finest paper. When you glide your fingers across the page, it feels so smooth and slick you almost can't believe it's paper. In fact, the company describes the paper as being "as smooth as silk." We can verify that claim.

The truly special and unique part of the Kunisawa line is the amazingly smooth paper. All of Kunisawa’s books use “foolscap” paper, which has a very interesting history. As told by our friends at Kunisawa:

“Britain’s foolscap paper is relatively well known, having even made an appearance in the English novelist Arthur Conan Doyle’s 19th Century Sherlock Holmes series, which is said to be the origin of the phrase. The “foolscap” name is said to come from the jester’s hat that was originally used as the watermark for the paper.

First imported to Japan from Britain in the Meiji era (1868-1912), the paper was perfect for note-taking due to the smooth writing feel and excellent ink absorption it provided for fountain pens.

The first Japanese foolscap paper was born under the name “OK Foolscap Paper” as a response to the demand for paper with such qualities to be produced domestically.

As Japan’s only paper dedicated to executive-grade note taking, it is used locally for high-class, watermarked notebooks, letter sets, and other materials.”
