I love the look of the Oberon covers -- thinking of the Raven in taupe or Creekbed Maple in green. I went to a local bookstore to see what Oberon products look like in person (I live a few miles from their factory). The journal covers were quite thick and hard, and the edges didn't feel smooth. I have an M-Edge Executive on order but I feel an Oberon splurge coming on . . . I use my covers folded back, so also wondering if the inside of the front cover feels smooth?
