Which is a shame!
When I first touched this Kensington, I was amazed about how soft and plyable the leather is. Very unlike the Mini Kensington I once owned, which was very stiff and which seemed to have been made of much thicker leather than this one. The black leather has a very nice shine!
On the left the Kensington has 8 card slots with a full height vertical pocket behind it. On the right there is a very roomy gusseted zip pocket with another vertical pocket behind it.

The pen loop is made entirely of leather. But since the leather is so soft and bendable the penloop is a lot more flexible than you'd expect. In fact, I would love if all Filofaxes came with these penloops!

Alas, it only comes with the standard 23 mm -rings. It really would have deserved 30 mm rings!!!

Of course, you'll want to know if this baby lays flat? Well, to be honest, it does a LOT more than that!
Have a look!
|Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's a Filofax!!!|
Even my favourite Malden isn't that flexible!
And in case you wondered how it would look stuffed, I tranfered the guts from my Personal Malden to the Kensington. I'm looking forward to the test drive!

Hope you enjoyed this little tour. If you love Vintage Filofaxes you should come back, because I have a very rare bright red Winchester coming (should the seller ever decide to ship the darn thing ...!).
