Planner of the week-series - Balmoral 10CLF Karung Raspberry
11.04.2020: This week my planner of the week just arrived here. It is a vintage model which was produced in the 1980s. It is not easy to pinpoint it in the Filofax-catalogues. There are mentions of build-to-order models made of exotic leather like this Karung snake-leather and the colour-options for Karung include violet and pale-plum. I would call the colour of my Karung Magenta or Raspberry though.
The style of this one is like the Vintage (1980s) Balmoral 10CLF, which is a trifold with a jot-pad on the right. Two very long pen-sleeves and a big pocket on the left. Did I mention 30mm rings?
The leather has a very special touch - you can feel the small scales of Karung snake. It is a stiff planner, does show no fading of colour and is in a very very good condition.
I was unsure of the colour judging from the preview photos of the seller. But I do like it and it is useable for me.
