Hi, 

 

I've been looking to buy a pen case for my Carlo Collodi edition & Gaius edition but I'm finding it difficult to get a case that suitable for such thick pens. 

 

My budget is 50$ as I've already spent money on the aston 2 pen case - but the pen doesn't go in smoothly and fits very tight (I'm scared it might discolour the pen) 

 

Would anyone have any recommendations? 

 

I was thinking of the Franklin-Christoph 1 pen case, but it says max diameter is 0.75" which is pretty much the same as the carlo collodi's width.

Thanks for your help! :)

You could try and get a wooden dowel the same diameter as your pen and use that to stretch the leather in your pen case, since it's not that much that needs to stretch.

Thats a good idea! Somehow stretch the leather to make the pen fit :D That would be a good option, thanks!

Looks quite interesting! I'm still hoping to find something off the shelve

I have got a Georgio Fedon 1914 leather pen case that can easily hold a MB 146 and the WE Swift:

Much as LOVE Franklin Christoph pens, the elastic bands in their pen cases are so tight, they have left marks on pens with soft finishes like my Porsche Design fountain pen with the leather pieces in the exterior.
