    • Chemicals will weaken the leather over time. Be patient. Its ruggedness will grow in character with you.
    • Don't be afraid of a scuff. Lick your finger. Rub it in. The oils from your skin shape the patina's look over time. So go ahead. Handle it!
    • Avoid leaving leather for extended periods of time in direct sunlight or extreme heat. We recommend Rustico's Custom Designed Leather Cleaner for additional leather cleaning and conditioning.

    Better than expected

    I ordered this as a gift for my best friend and I was simply blown away by it! The craftsmanship was top notch and it was beautiful. I'm definitely ordering more in the future!


    Since it was a gift I was told it was beautiful and well made. Perfect place for secrets

    Journal very nice but the pen...lacking.

    Journal was exquisite. I collect leather journals to write in and I collect fountain pens. I have 30 or so fountain pens and enjoy experimenting with the writing. I always use the adapter with quality ink. This pen did not meet up. It does not flow well. Hard to get it started and is more scratchy. Not enjoyable to write with. Possible lemon defect but disappointing for me. I would recommend the journal, but not the pen. Maybe if it were replaced and a new pen which wrote smoother and better without skips thenI could change this review.

    Better than Santa

    I don't know how they do it, but that Rustico team sleighs with their gifts they make. Perfectly hand crafted, and the customer service is North Pole-worthy.


    Very nice
