    I just find them a little too big for front pocket carry. Why-oh-why isn't there an A7 moleskine :shrug: ??

    there have been some people that have made some ultra tiny moleskins using a powered bandsaw... just hold the book closed real tight and it should cut through the cover and pages pretty good! some people have even made custom shapes with a jigsaw...

    allthough im not so sure about the elastic band remaining though... youd have to work around that...

    I cut a Moleskine cahiers pad in half so it would fit in my wallet. I attached it to a table with wood clamps and used a razor knife and a metal ruler. I just kept going over the cut again and again until it was all the way through.(a work table not a kitchen table) It worked well. I'm sure a table saw would be better but I don't have one.

    for me the band is better lengthways anyway; easier to attach a pencil.

    hmm, yeah I've seen some stuff about cutting them up to make them smaller. I'd better search around to see how hard it would be to create a frankenskine. pics will follow if I go through with it. thanks for reminding me

    Well after reading your posts and praise of moseskines I went and purchased one today (hardback Lined pgs.), as well as a Fischer Bullet pen.
    Now I had a Fischer in the past (never could figure what happened to it) and loved it. But the Moleskine is something new.
    I love them both. Can't wait to use them up ;D

    That's a great combo. I carry a matte black Fisher Bullet Pen and two Moleskines every day (the Hong Kong City Edition and a plain notebook).

    nah, I'm not very handy with powertools. Computer geek through-and-through. I found a nice A7 pad that is perfect for me and lasts me about a year, so I bought 15 of them. Maybe in 15 years I'll remember the Frankenskine idea and hack one to pieces, but until then I've found my notepad nirvana :)
