Beautifully bound leather journal -
I couldn't believe how quickly the product arrived after I purchased it. I was delighted when I opened it and saw how beautiful and high quality it looked. I would definitely recommend this again and other products of this nature.
Simply beautiful -
By: dugon from UK
I know it's not perfect, like you can only write on one side, that it's a bit hard to write near the bottom edge of the paper, that the pencil supplied with it seems to not match the journal, and that it seems a bit expensive. However it is so beautiful that I just can't stop looking at it, handling it and using it. It's simply one of best things I have ever bought.
Leather Journal -
By: JCF1966 from Wilpshire UK
Let be honest here this thing is expensive, but i can say it is worth every penny though it does have some problems. the Cons 1, You can only right on one side, there are no ruled lines on the left sheet and because of how the Journal opens it would be hard to right on that side any way, 2, It really will not use paper bought from the UK. The journal is set up in a 2-2-2 holes for the paper but the UK has 3-3. now because the ties on you can make it fit but why would you, spending this much on a journal and then cutting the corner on paper, really. 3. The only other problem, and to be fair this is not just this journal is the paper pad is quite thick so when you are getting to the bottom of the page you hand need to be held away from the page 4, This is not a problem but more of a note, on the first page were you can put your name etc the is a quote, it is a nice quote but to be honest i wish it just had a few lines there so i could add something, may be not a quote but a list of what is in the journal etc. The Pros 1, This thing is stunning, it looks and feels like you have a very special peace of kit in your hands, and this for me, as some one who suffers from dyslexia is a great reason to pick it up and right in it. 2, Personalisation is nice but a little faint. 3, The paper is nice and thick and very nice to right in, the ink just flows onto the sheets. 4, Delivery, I think it said it was going to take about 8 weeks but it took 2. This was a nice surprise. 5, With the pad being quite thick i just bought another pad and use that to keep my hand level 6, This thing is stunning, now i know that is the same as number one but it is so important it is worth mentioning twice. Can I recommend this, very much so, i will be using this for many years to come.
Overcoming the conflict -
By: Sgt548 from Lord knows where in the Pacific
My oldest son is in the Navy. Currently he's shipboard in the Pacific. He's all that a Dad could want a son to grow into and getting better all the time, that is excepting communication. He's the quiet type. From his sparse emails and infrequent calls to his mother only under the strictest orders I can muster from several thousands of miles away does he share his experiences. This will someday be a loss to his own children and family for all the interesting things he's doing. All man, he's not prone to "writing" per-se but he does appreciate the legitimacy of fine things. This journal fits the bill and has overcome the conflict between a pursuit questionable to a young man (journaling) and what I'm sure will be a strong interest in these years of his life from family further on. Fine quality and convieniently refillable. Monogram in a nice spot too.

I can not adequately express how thrilled I am with this journal. It's so spectacularly crafted. If there is anyone in your life that you want to give something really special to, this is it. It's packaged beautifully, made so well, and has the touch of a hand signed little card of the "craftsman" who made it for you. One of the best gifts I've ever gotten! I'm trying to think who in my life is deserving of one now so I can give this amazing gift!
Amaing quality! -
By: Hippo33 from London
I first discovered the Col. Littleton brand in America last year and bought their ipad case. I was then delighted to find that Orvis stocked a small selection of Col. Littleton in the UK and they had the journal too! The leather is beautiful and the size is perfect for carrying in my handbag. The notepad inside is a bery good size and will last quite a while I think! Ideal for men and women, I would highly recommend this to everyone! Just wish Orvis would increase their Col. littleton range.

Gave this to my son last week for graduation from college. It was great gift! The initials gave it a great touch and the leather was of quality and wonderful craftsmanship. Worth the $$$$$ thanks Orvis
Excellent in all ways -
By: G8RHEEL from Chapel Hill, NC
I lille journals, love some. This one is exceptional. Leather is exquisite quality, filler is rustic in appearance, but fits the journal's style very well (and writes well). I really like this journal. My search has ended, especially with the refillable nature. Just what I was looking for.
