I wanted a single pen case to carry my fountain pens: Waterman Carène, Parker Premier and Caran d'Ache Leman.

 

I found some interesting options, but had to import them. There was also another issue: I wanted a case that could also carry a spare cartridge.

 

What I did was, based on this Lamy design,

lamy_dialog_pen_case_open.jpg

asking for a tailor-made one at a good shoe shop at my hometown - these people know how to work with leather. They even put a kind of shammy inside, to keep the integrity of lacquer and external paiting.

 

But what makes it really tailor-made, to my "specifications", was the little "pocket" to carry the cartridge:

Not that beautifully finished, but very functional. smiley-cool14.gif

That was really well done.  Nice idea for travel if you don't want to carry an ink bottle.

That's really great thinking. Maybe someone will catch the motivation to make a market version.
