I've been a happy repeat customer of Fountain Pen Revolution for a couple of years now, and wanted to post a quick 'first-look' review of their latest new release: a 2-pen case made of leather. These are currently for sale on their website (www.fountainpenrevolution) for US$24 plus postage. In honor of the launch, they're including a FPR 'Indus' fountain pen, valued at US$17, for free - in a randomly-selected colour and nib size. I purchased two - one to keep, and one to give away.
Onto the case itself, though - which conforms to a fairly standard design. The front of the pouch is made of fairly stiff, double-layered leather, with some kind of stiffening material inserted between the layers. The back of the pouch is roughly twice the length of the front - with a sizeable flap that folds over and tucks into the loop that holds the case closed. The sides of the pouch are thinner - just a single layer of leather, allowing the case to expand slightly as needed to accommodate larger-diameter pens.
The leather is a warm, chocolatey-brown colour, with the FPR logo prominently emblazoned on the front of the flap:
The dimensions of the pen case are roughly 15cm tall x 4.5cm wide x 2cm deep - though the flap is long enough to accommodate taller pens. I found that my Diplomat pens (the Aero and the Diplomat Excellence A) were a very good fit; my 'girthiest' pen, a black Jinhao 159, took up a little more than half the width of the pouch, but could also be accommodated.
The interior of the pouch has a 'divider' running down the middle, that ensures the two pens inside don't bump or scrape in transit:
I have to say I'm very impressed with these cases: they look great, the stitching is neat and even, and they seem very sturdily constructed. I'm looking forward to carrying one around with me - and am pretty sure that the recipient of the second case will appreciate the gift.
That's about all I can think to say - feel free to ask any questions if you'd like to know more!
