These journals are just gorgeous. I have two, one in black and one in saddle, to house letters to my late parents. Chad and Jessica worked with me to make sure the leather and design I chose were just right for something so personal - they really lived their brand through their personal and caring customer service. On both, I got the zipper pocket and double button closure. The journals are a pleasure to carry and write in, both because they age so beautifully, and because they are so functional. Pockets for notes or idea cards, a zipper for my favorite pens, and a high quality notebook - it makes these into heirloom-level possessions that hold my memories in a special way.
Super pleased with this purchase!
Nice leather quality. Like how soft and supple it is. Not the biggest fan of the double button closure. Would prefer a single button or some sort of clasp closure instead. Also because of how close the outer pen/pencil holding slot is to the upper button, you cannot both use the pen slot and use the upper button closure, which kind of defeats the purpose of having two pen slots. Would definitely recommend getting the zipper closure option or else the frost journal with its single pen sot.
Two pens, a notebook. The whole thing protected by a beautiful leather cover. Going to meetings with this original and well crafted journal cover is extremely satisfactory. Can't wait for the next one!!
I will not go into the details of the design, because in it’s self is an adventure. But my parents were leather workers at a point. I have works from both. My father gave me his leather was, with Chinese keys on it, which was patina in his pocket. Two thief’s tried to steal it from him getting on the bus, but grabbed it before one pulled it out of his pocket. The leather is much thinner then this, I can carry this by hand or in my tactical Fanny pack with kindle, extra glasses, you know all myTibetan la EDC. Everything for reading and writing in my Bullet journal method. As a BuJo newbie I am doing a flurry of notes these days, my BuJo is always open. Like my father’s patina leather legacy, this is my patina, even if I have other leather supplies, but probably will not patina like my father’s wallet.
