    • Leather Care

    • 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.

Writers Log Large Leather Notebook


Exactly what I was looking for. Authentic leather.


Writers Log Large Leather Notebook

Top notch quality

As always, this journal shipped right away and was in excellent condition. The leather is awesome, smells amazing, and feels sturdy.

The notebook itself is pretty stiff, which made it challenging to write in for the first few days. Don’t be afraid to bend it and break it in, I put it through some serious stress and it survived! Easier to write in now, but my next journal will be one that lays flat more easily, like the Good Book or Traveller. Also, the paper is thick, but fairly absorbent, so I can’t really use my fountain pens without getting a really bold, feathered line. Extra fine nibs probably won’t have any trouble. Works great with my normal gel and rollerball pens though!

This particular journal wasn’t the best fit for me, but I don’t regret my purchase for a minute! The quality is outstanding and I love the look of it. I’m going to fill this one up and purchase from Rustico again very soon. 👍🏼👍🏼

Thanks for the awesome and helpful review, Gabe! We appreciate your business and love that you are breaking in your journal and really making it your own!
