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.”

  1. I can’t say enough how amazing the No. 33 notebook really is. Once I got my hands on it, I couldn’t stop staring at it! I can’t believe I just found Colonel Littleton a few months ago. I am a forever customer!! Thank you Colonel for putting out the best products! This notebook is my personal favorite item, but all the products made there are amazing!!


  2. I just received my No#33 notebook as my first order, the quality is incredible. From the leather to the stitching and even the packaging was top notch. The only flaw I see is the studs on the memo pad are slightly off making the pad sit at an angle. A very small angle. Overall I love the notebook.

  3. I wanted something that said, “This person is serious about their work”. The minute I pulled the notebook out of the canvas bag it shipped in, I knew it was something special. I had a much less expensive leather notebook I typically carried with me at work. I immediately put that notebook away and made this my go to. The first day I had the notebook I was called to work on a particularly important project. I was glad to have the No. 33 with me. It will be something I treasure for many years and someday I will pass it on. You can’t go wrong with this notebook. (verified owner)

  4. What can I say about No. 33 Notebook in Tobacco Brown American Buffalo. When first seeing this notebook I knew I just had to have it, yet I hesitated a bit, as it was a bit on the expensive side. However, once actually putting my hands on it, letting the feel and smell of the leather grab hold, and seeing the quality of the workmanship; it was well worth every penny. It is something I use throughout the day, every day.

  5. CL products do not disappoint! This notebook is stunning and I look forward to using it every single day. The quality is top notch and the design is remarkable! Can’t wait to get back and start a nice collection of CL products!


  6. From the moment you select a CL product, until the moment it arrives in the mail you are engaged in an exciting experience. The unboxing is a personal event. Quality is apparent from the time you raise the lid until you reach your product through the layers of packing. The moment of truth occurs when you open… the Moon Pie. Perfection. Then of course you reach your purchase. My most recent is the #33 notebook. It is as much a work of art as it is a functional product. Again the impact of quality is apparent. It is indeed a “want”. It is also destined as an heirloom. CL has stated these two facts unapologetically. So, plan accordingly. Your product will take on the features of “an old friend”, and you will use it for many years to come.

  7. I just received my #33 Notebook. I cannot tell you how great the quality is, the beautiful leather. Totally gorgeous. I have a number of Col. Littleton products and every one is beautiful. This one did not disappoint. Thank you for making such great quality products and the care in packaging. Always a thrill to open the box and see the care taken to package it.

  9. My lovely wife gifted me with the Colonel’s buffalo desk pad and matching mouse pad for Christmas last year, and I was incredibly impressed with the quality of workmanship and sheer beauty of the leather. After months of looking at the No. 33 Notebook, I had to have it. Quite simply, this little gem is a masterpiece! Functional, superbly designed and a joy to use – it’s the centerpiece of my desk. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants the best notebook ever.

  10. This is a stunning item. The Col. is right. If you hold one of these in your hands, you will have to have it. It’s that good. DT


  11. Received this today as part of a recent order. Truly a stunning piece. Beautifully crafted, and loaded with functionality. I look forward to using it for years to come. Always a first-class experience doing business with Colonel Littleton.

  12. Beautiful workmanship. Bought it as a gift for a friend and was told it was the best leather work he has ever had.

    I wish this style wrapper was in the legal portfolio on the interior as I would purchase one now. So, if the Colonel is seeing this review. Give me a ring when you make it and I will be the first one. Thank you, for the quality workmanship. CaptKirk


  13. Saw this new product and immediately was impressed by the beautiful leather. Great quality and service as usual. I was really impressed how soft the leather feels, as good as it looks! Well pleased!

  14. A rare treat to visit the store looking for a simple journal and finding this new product. The appearance of the leather and texture is exquisite, but the design is what sold me. A place to secure my large phone? Done. A large composition journal with room to write? Done. A place for writing instruments? Business cards? Additional memos? All done in a compact non-bulky well styled unit. Marvelous item. Very proud to give it a home and daily use.

    Many thanks.



  15. Absolutely beautiful and such high quality. Pictures don’t do it justice!

  16. I wasn’t sure about the new color at first but decided to go ahead and order anyway. So glad I did! The tobacco brown is such a rich classic color and the notebook itself is so unique. My phone fits perfectly in the front “pocket”, so this is all I need to grab for a meeting. Typical Colonel quality and attention to detail. My son has his eye on this and has already asked me to update my will!


  17. The No. 33 Notebook is exceptional and a work of art! Simply a beautiful design. From the first time I saw this journal online, I knew it was special but to hold it and feel the quality, exceeds expectation and now the burden is upon me to fill the empty pages with words that will be of value that will outlast the leather….

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.

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.
