Options for smooth, matte or semi-matte papers that use PK ink

Hello fellow printers,

I have a sc-p600 that is going strong since 2019 and I have not since performed any MK/PK switch. Thus I am afraid to perform it now, as the MK has surely settled on me and might ruin the valve.

So I am stuck with PK for now.

I have a collection of great glossy, baryta type papers and love them. I also have some satin like papers such as Ilford Gold fiber silk and Bonjet Atelier Fiber and Bonjet one. So in that regard I am saturated.

I am now looking for a paper that fits these requirements or comes close:

- uses PK ink

- smooth surface

- matte or semi-matte finish with as little reflection as possible

- as heavy as possible, preferably >300g/m2

- can be on the warmer side of the color spectrum

I have tried  Canson RC photosatin (too cold) and Ilford Mono Silk Warmtone (too flimsy). Both come close to my requirements but not quite. Any suggestions?
