No. 33 Notebook in Tobacco Brown American Buffalo

The No. 33 Notebook may well be the epitome of the take-along notebook/journal. It looks impressive in business venues, but also works exceptionally well when you’re on the go. Extremely portable and made to take everywhere, it is a compact, multi-purpose notebook . . . or really a cross between a notebook and a journal.

“If you could just pick up this notebook and hold it in your hands, you’d probably want one even if you never wrote a word in it . . . seriously, it looks and feels that good. I promise you will definitely create a great deal of ‘notebook/journal envy’ everywhere you take it.”
– Colonel Littleton

Well-known YouTuber, Carl Murawski agrees with the Colonel when talking about the No. 33 Notebook. Watch his full review of the No. 33 Notebook above.

Functionality and Design 

Colonel designed the No. 33 Notebook in our wonderfully textured Tobacco Brown American Buffalo, which is dry-milled for a soft hand and trimmed in our traditional Vintage Brown American Steerhide. Two front straps with brass ball-stud closures complete the look. An 8 ¾” x 5” pocket under the front flap holds your phone and/or writing paraphernalia.

Open it up and you have your office on the go. On the right interior, in addition to a business card and pen holder, you have a replaceable 5” x 8” ruled Memorandum Pad for jotting down quick notes and lists. On the left interior you’ll find Colonel’s Journal Register (9 ¾”H x 7 3/8”W) which contains 160 ruled and center-stitched pages (80 sheets). Date the registers on the inside cover and file them away for future reference. Great for journaling, compiling business plans, speech writing or any way it fits your needs.

The tri-fold construction of the notebook allows you to fold it to the section you want to use when space is limited, and it’s easily compatible with left or right handed users. Take it on extended flights, while waiting for appointments, to the beach, to the office or anywhere you choose to do creative thinking and writing.

Make it undeniably yours by personalizing it with three initials on the front brass oval plate. Made in the Col. Littleton Workshop – Lynnville, TN USA.

When it comes to American Buffalo, Colonel says,
“Expect a leather that is unapologetically rugged with more character, nicks, scrapes and variations in color.”

    I am a writer and I love notebooks, journals and folios. Pocket size, medium, large, I love them all. And I love leather. Which brings me to Colonel Littleton Leather Company. The place is addicting. I have purchased numerous notebooks, journals and folios. And wallets. I could not be more pleased with everything. The workmanship is impeccable. The is leather buttery soft and luxurious. The customer service is exceptional. Oh, before I forget, the No. 33 notebook in the tobacco brown American Buffalo is a work of art.

    Last week I drove from my home in Alabama to the Colonel Littleton store in Lynnville specifically to buy this No. 33 Notebook in CL Buffalo. Having watched the videos and reading the reviews I was already sold before I ever arrived but when you actually see this piece in person it is absolutely stunning! The quality of the leather and the workmanship is amazing. This notebook has been my constant companion since I bought it and it will continue to be at my side in and out of the office, courtrooms, and meetings. The combination of the composition journal for thoughts and items I need to remember and the small notepad for miscellaneous info makes this notebook exceptionally functional. And as an unforeseen bonus, while I was looking around at all of the other items in the store I found a Buffalo Commander briefcase that matched my notebook perfectly so of course I had to buy it as well. The combination of the Commander Briefcase and the No 33 Notebook is perfect for courtroom appearances, client meetings, etc. I get compliments and questions about both the notebook and the briefcase daily. I’m looking forward to making some additional purchases including a medium writing board. Thank you to everyone at Colonel Littleton for producing such amazing heirloom quality products!

    I purchased the No. 33 Notebook in November 2020. It is a faithful friend that is with me all the time. The workmanship is superb. Being a very unique notebook I’ve received a lot of compliments on it. I have several of the Colonel’s products and this is by far my favorite. You won’t go wrong purchasing any of the the leather goods produced in their shop.

    This is without a doubt some of the finest leather work I have ever seen. Rarely have I smiled for so long after opening a product. That’s all well and good, but what really gets me is the level of class that this company has. The extras are what truly sets Col. Littleton apart from everyone else! Other companies should take a page from the colonels playbook. I know that I will use this journal many times everyday and that it will out live me. A true pleasure to use and a real treasure. For sure I will be back.

Our Story

Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

Our Craftsmanship

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
