Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Thick, creamy paper that doesn't let ink bleed through. Index and numbered pages to track months or dedicated sections. Pocket in back to store keepsakes. Can be used as a journal, calendar, or appointment organizer.
The quality is incredible and it just feels so luxurious to write in every day. In fact, I can confidently say that my bullet journal habit became much easier to establish once I switched to a Leuchtturm1917 for the first time.
Expandable pocket on the back cover. Table of contents and index. Hardcover journal to protect pages.
As I'm sure you know, the medium/A5 dotted Leuchtturm1917 is my favorite notebook. It has pretty great details that make it a prime choice for Bullet Journal purposes as it has a built-in index, pagination, and quality paper that will keep your memories safe.

What reviewers didn't like

May not need an index if its being used strictly for journaling. Not everyone will like or need the dotted paper.
The Leuchtturm1917 isn’t the cheapest journal you can get your hands on. Leuchtturm1917 notebooks might be tough to get your hands on — this is especially the case for certain countries or regions. There can be some ghosting with certain pens. At 80 gsm, this is to be expected.
Binding came undone quite easily. Noticeable ghosting and bleeding with Sharpies. Some pages are off center.
When you write on the Leuchtturm1917, it does have a fair amount of show-through. What this means is that when you write on one side of the paper and then flip to the next page, you will be able to see faintly what is written on the other side.
