Does anyone know where I can find some plastic pen cases for shipping/storage of my pens. Like the cases Montblanc uses for their repairs. See attached image/example.

For shipping the best is that pvc pipes for electrical wiring, cutting the right sizes. Also there are various diameter dimensions to choose from. Use bubble wrap to protect the pen inside the barrel, then tape at both ends.

One brand name is Quadro-Pack. I found sources in Asia but generally the minimum orders are huge. I have attached one link if you would like to further pursue, I have not yet.

If you only need a couple you might check with a machine shop that uses a lot of machine tools. They are often tossed out.  I first saw these with drill bits, etc. packaged in them. That is where I got the few that I have.

 

I think they are brilliant in the way they expand to fit the product.

 

Good luck

I've notice recent that cardboard tube from cling film used in kitchen can be cut in half and use as well as alternative.
