Fantastic! My dear wife even thought that they looked handsome!
The journal was a Valentine's gift from my wife, given this past weekend as she has been out of town working for the past month. I only mentioned to my wife that I'd like a nice journal to write in and this is what she got...exactly the journal I had been looking at. She must have done some looking back into the internet explorer history to find it as she swears she spoke to none of my family about it...what a great wife!
In regards to the specifics of the journal, it is the "large" writing journal from renaissance-art.com. It has the wrap closure, lined pages, my name stamped into the leather on the front, and a custom title page created by my beautiful wife. Personally, I wanted the wrap closure as it offers extra protection of the open end of the book whereas the strap closure does not. The book's construction looks to be first rate and I expect it to last a lifetime. Apparently, it was shipped within 24 hours as is advertised for most of their products.
I have not yet taken my Pelikan 400 and Noodlers Legal Lapis to the hand torn pages of this immaculately constructed piece of work, but I cannot wait for tomorrow morning to come (I am at work and on call all of tonight). The description from the website states that this paper is fantastic for fountain pens, light watercolor washes, pencil, and pastels. This book, for example, seems to remind me of scenes from The Lord of the Rings where ancient writings were kept in beautifully constructed bindings for thousands of years. Hopefully, my writings in this book will be worth re-reading many years for now...maybe as a daily journal or as a creative writing piece.

3017'ers Know How To Get Loaded
This week it's been a Merkur HD and Futur, Nancy Boy Shave Cream, 100 Feathers and 100 Derby's.
Nice razors. That Aristocrat should shine up very nicely if you do it right.
Christmas arrived a bit late for me this year, but it has finally arrived. These are products from a wish list that I have been building for some time now. A couple of the items are new to the list, and a handful of them have been on the list for 8+ months. All of the items have been thoroughly researched (minus the Azzaro EDT's) so I don't anticipate being anything besides thrilled with each one.
Complementary Alum Block
QED DaVinci Water
Merkur LH Razor
QED French Green Clay
Complementary 5-pack of Derby's
QED B&B Shave Soap
Castle Forbes Lime
Azzaro Vetiver EDT
Azzaro Lavender EDT
and when my B&B Brush & Razor arrive...it will be time to order something else!
