HelloÂ everyone today, I’m doing a review of this notebook mate, but a company Red Co Goods.
So this is called the Red Co Flying Owl Journal and it is the color midnight blue and it is made with it says on a website, vegan leather. But it’s just a PU leather, it’sÂ really soft. The cover feels really smooth almost slightly rubbery, very nice to the touch, and then it has this texture here in the color, which is nice too, and then there’s the Flying Owl in here.
In the backÂ there’s the logo Red Co, there’s the spine and it has aÂ elastic, strap and bookmark. That’s black, oh nice watch here and there’s there’s no pocket.
The dimensions are 5 by 7 inches or roughly 13 by 18 centimeters. So it is smaller than an a5. It’s the size that I personally really like is a wee bit more compact, but it’s still enough writing space.
The edges are rounded, as you can see, and there’s barely any overhang like not even maybe a millimeter at most. So that’s really nice that the paper pretty much lines up with the cover. I really like that a notebook.
It has 240 pages or a 120 sheets, and the ruling is 6.5 millimeter and there is a margin around the page, as you can see what the ruling and it lies really flat too there’s another big Bonus there, you can see that really well, so just open it up and just press down a little lie super flat.Â
The paper is evory color. It is 80 GSM paper, so it’s a nice thickness and let me show you the writing sample. Obviously the notebook is stich and bound as you can see right here.
There’s the writing samples. So here we have a pencil, a ballpoint pen, a 0.4milimeter gel pen, 0.7 millimeter gel pen, and then here we have the fountain pen, the pilot of Metropolitan Medium Diamine Marine ink and there’s a litle bit of fettering, but barely any. I don’t the camera picks this up, as you can see, so I can definitely use a fountain pen off the paper.
In the back there is ghosting with all the Pens, but there’s no place for really with theÂ fountain pen. So I would say this is definitely fountain pen friendly paper, so I got no problem there, especially with finer nibs. Even have these super wet ones, but the finding is there’s no problem whatsoever, so nice paper quality there.
It seems like it’s manufactured well, so I mean time will tell how it will hold up, but so far so good and there’s a white cover page here in the front and then there’s the cover page, also white back right here.
The cover is, I would consider this a hardcover notebook, but it’s actually slightly flexible. So if you like that, a notebook – and it’s definitely one for you, so I don’t like one cover the super thick super stiff and like actually like this. A lot was just liked has led gifted, but still enough supportive when you just open it up and I’m holding just right like this. You still have you know it’s not just totally bending on you, so it was another big bonus.
The lines i i’d say a guard gray. You see right there . I think this is a really nice notebook and, as i said, i love the size. Five by seven, you don’t find it as much as a standard a5. So it’s a little bit smaller, i’m a little bit more compact and the price is really great on those they’re about ten bucks on amazon. So i think it’s a really nice notebook considering the price
