I saw somewhere that another artist had made a sketchbook with Rives BFK paper, so I included some in my current sketchbook, since I happened to have some on hand. It's a printmaking paper and has a soft surface. When it's wet, it gets kind of fuzzy. This is good for intaglio but not so great for ink and watercolor. The drawings come out softer and more diffused looking, which is a nice change, but I don't think I'll use it again.
