My Review:

I had a pile of 30 A5 journals and I was faced with the decision to pick the next notebook to use for my new bullet journal. I actually sat down and looked at all of them. Opened to the pen test pages and sorted them into piles of “yes” and “no” so I could narrow down the search. There were only about 5 or 6 options in the yes pile and when I went through the second round of review, the Tekukor rose to the top of the heap. Why do I like this one better than the others… especially when so many of these notebooks have such similar specs?

I thought it was important that I choose a dotted journal (even though at the beginning of this search I was on the hunt for a lined journal) and that I needed numbered pages (even though I rarely use the index, so numbers aren’t important after all) and that it had 3 bookmarks (even though I’m now using book darts instead of ribbon bookmarks). But I still love all those things about this journal. I also love the extra wide elastic closure – it feels so much more secure than the notebooks with a thin elastic band. The paper here is amazing and feels much brighter than those that are ivory or cream. The paperweight is 100gsm and I never have a problem with ghosting or bleeding. There’s a coating on the paper so also no feathering either.

So yes, I love this journal. I love the paper and the size of the page. I love the way it feels in my hand. Even though it’s in the budget category at less than $13, it feels like a high-end journal.
