    I have had a journal before in the UK but recently lost it. On arriving for a few days in the USA ordered a new buffalo one to be delivered to my hotel- less than 24 hours later it arrived. O so good. Perhaps another order next trip.

    Do not hesitate any longer! Buying this journal will be the last one you will ever have to purchase. The craftsmanship is stellar, and the leather is buffalo rustic adding legitimacy to the adventures, I mean fishing truths, I will be able to describe within the now family heirloom. I went with the Colonels journal because I have multiple examples of his other superior products and have confidence in its durability. As far as price, I use the mantra of cry ouch one, but pay once! Also what seals the deal is buying Made in USA!

    OMG, Colonel, I just received , yet another Littleton product and it AGAIN feels like Christmas all over again.
    The excitement started when I saw on-line and then viewed in your catalog the No. 9 Journal that I have been eyeing for ages. The excitement continued when I placed the order and patiently waited until the big day of it’s arrival in the mail. The excitment peaked!
    Tho not my 1st purchase, it seemed and felt like it as I knew the additional suprises of the treat and notes of explanation AND the bag for the Journal, which I did ot realize came with it.
    My great grandfather was a harness maker so I have leather running thru my blood. I have fine quality belts, boots and shoes as THERE IS A DIFFERENCE !
    I so , so much appreciate your approach and attitude toward life and work and quality and rural life development. Because of all that, I proudly buy from you and your community and feel proud that I can support USA, quality-made products.
    Speaking of quality, Colonel, do you recall your gold ‘surveyors’ twist pen from ages ago ? I want you to know my 1st entry into the Journal was made by this pen I bought probably 25 years ago. and still use to this day.
    I love it as my favorite pen.
    I now love this Journal as I love to write and I just FEEL GOOD entering notes into my brand-spanking new Colonel Littleton No. 9 American Buffalo Journal!
    P.S. I also want you to know that I did also find all those little Colonels as part of last years Contest.

    I received this journal from my wife as gift. It’s absolutely beautiful. I’m a guy who who loves tech, but for there is noting better than sitting down and capturing your thoughts than pencil and paper.

    The craftsmanship of the Buffalo leather cover provides a great vintage feel in a high tech world. It’s the perfect way to escape. The quality is amazing and you can that over time it will wear with rugged look and feel that others will envy.

    I am a first time customer, and now a loyal one. This journal is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship and it will be a real pleasure to use. If you love good leather the way I do you will not be disappointed with this product. Even the packaging was a real treat! I look forward to my next purchase from the Colonel, and writing in this journal for a long time!

    This journal basically makes me feel more manly! I love the color variations in the buffalo and it holds well too. If your looking for something to last for generations, then The No. 9 journal is for you.

    I spotted the No. 9 journal several years ago and instantly knew I was going to own one someday. And then they started offering it in American Buffalo. Being from Nashville I’m lucky enough to not be too far away from Lynnville and the Colonel’s shop so I made the trek down a few weeks ago to pick up my journal. Upon arriving in Lynnville I was instantly greeted by the small-town charm and atmosphere advertised here on the site (and I actually met and talked with Bud from the video for a while… I hope your hand is doing better, man! It’s almost primo riding weather again!). Bud and Charlene (she’s in the video as well and she was just as nice and lovely in person) were more than helpful enough to get me the perfect journal for me. I only put it off so long because I was just a bit unsure of the price/quality ratio and I can say now that all of those concerns were for nothing. This thing is built with a beauty and quality that is just lost on almost every other product readily available today and just holding it and feeling it for yourself will give you the impression that it is built to last! Your family will be fighting over well after you’ve filled it with messages for them. If you get the chance head down to the shop for yourself, say hi to everyone in there working so hard, and get yourself one of those little moon pies. You won’t regret it!

    The No. 9 American Buffalo Journal is the best and last journal I’ll ever have to purchase. The quality and craftsmanship is second to none and let me mention it’s stylish as well. I’m a happy customer!!

    When my wife asked for a journal this Christmas,I knew exactly where to go for something that would be appropriate to hold her memories forever. For the past several seasons, I’ve bought products from Colonel Littleton knowing that, in the years to come, they will be still be appreciated for the quality as well the value placed upon the product and the customer by the good folks in Lynnville. I’m a very happy repeat customer. Thanks.

    I ordered this as an early Christmas gift only 2 days ago. They even send a personal message to make sure you are happy with your product.

    I use a journal daily for work. I cant begin to speak about the craftsmanship. It is lovely and Im looking to using for many years to come.

    This is my second product and very pleased!!!
