Otherwise, this is a great small notebook - high quality.
You will love the feel of the cloth hardboard covers. The paper holds up excellent (no bleed through) to both my Lamy rollerball and Kaweco Sport fountain pens. I love the dot grid as opposed to the rules or graph versions of other notebooks. The lay flat option is also a great feature that yields full use of the page. The sewn binding enables this. 12 perforated pages in the back give you that option for rare instance you need a looseleaf without messing up your notebook. There is no brand markings to be found anywhere in the notebook except for the bottom of the last page in the back. While I love the feel, width, and contrasting color of the ribbon, it does have a slight fray. (I'm sure they will fix this in their next version, as Baron Fig has invited feedback from all users.) This is my only critique.
It does tend to lay slightly open after use because of the absence of a closing elastic band, which I think can be cumbersome and become a nuisance as they stretchout overtime. Put it under a heavier book and it lays shut again.
Streamlined and simple, I prefer the Baron Fig without options as it comes. Fix the fraying ribbon and it is perfected.
First off, dot grid option. So much yes. Minimal design, which is always a plus in my book. I prefer pocket notebooks so I can't really comment much on the size("smart dimensions"), but I can say that I prefer it over other larger size notebooks that I've used so far. 192 pages of good paper. Handles fountain pen ink pretty well. Perforated pages in the back are nifty. It has some shortcomings, but the packaging is nice and the company seems open to feedback so I am willing to support that. Plus, it's a dot grid notebook. I think the only other decent dot grid notebook in these sizes are Leuchtterm1917's.
- Unique size makes it enjoyable to write
- Opens flat so that it is easier to write on the inside near the spine
- Fountain pen friendly
- Perforated pages
- Minimalist branding/design
- Ribbon seems cheap and frays. Also doesn't stay flat.
- Doesn't close all the way(although I think this is due to the open flat design and I gladly accept this tradeoff. I also prefer that there is no elastic strap, even though that would be useful)
- Single size and color option
