Grierson Studio

Pioneer Journal - Smooth Cherry

NOTE: Check out the video below to see how the notebook is designed and how to change the notebook refills. 

The beautiful burgundy tone of the leather in this Pioneer Journal gives it an elegant look while still allowing the character from the cowhide to shine through. The pull-up (change in colour when folded or creased) gives it the look of gradient colors and its smooth, waxy finish makes this leather a treat to hold in your hand.

At Grierson Studio, we know how difficult it is to keep a written record of your notes when your journal keeps springing shut as you try to write. That’s why our Pioneer Journals consist of two Moleskine Cahier notebooks, with off-white colored paper, that we have hand-stitched together so the journal lies flat when in use.

Featuring Australian made marine grade elastic cord, the Pioneer Journal has been designed for durability and to withstand the rigors of everyday use.

This versatile journal allows the notebooks to be replaced when full so you can continue to enjoy the leather cover and the unique character it will develop over time.    We have three notebook styles to choose from: lined,  dot-grid  and plain. You can configure your notebooks in any combination to suit your personal preference.

The handmade leather Pioneer Journal comes in two handy sizes – pocket and large. Both sizes are light-weight, designed for easy traveling, and made from the best quality leather.

Custom laser engraving is used to achieve the highest quality images.  It will never fade.  We offer a 124 character maximum and the default font will be a western typewriter style.  Both the font and number of characters used can be changed for an additional fee.  Graphics can also be added for an additional fee.  Please let us know what you need, we are happy to help.

      NOTE:   As leather is a natural material, some journals may have minor scarring, barb wire scratches or insect bites which only adds to the authentic and rugged nature of our journals.
