I think it might be better to ask at the boutique where you bought them.  :)

Try the Visconti pen pouch. I find it to be the greatest case of all!

I have some Montblanc and Graf von Faber-Castell leather 2 pen cases listed here, if you are interested. But I agree that Visconti's pen case has the best design! Visconti's pen case's leather quality seems slightly less premium, but still holds up very well.

Hi, thank you for the reply.  Is this the pen case you were mentioning?

Yes. Personally, I have a 6 pen case and 3 pen case, but not the 2 pen case.

 

I like that the zipper seems to be plastic, not metal, which is less risky to cause any scratches to the pen, when the pens move around, or get pulled out of the case.

 

The 2 slots on the sides are only slightly less spacious as the other ones in the middle. But in almost all cases, those slots can fit almost all of my pens. The material used inside is soft enough to not damage the pens.

 

I like zipper cases that provide the full protection to pens. After that, my second choice will be the pen pouches that have a magnetic closure.

Thank you, I ordered the Visconti 2 pen case just now!  I appreciate all the help!  Happy Holidays!

Well for future reference, I would say for the same or less money you can get a custom case made by our very own member my63. I don't know that he has done zippered cases, but I have two that slide closed and one with a flap right at the top. You can get your own dimensions, leather color, etc.

Either case would work fine.

I have the two pen zippered one and it takes the heritage 1912 without any size problems.

However the zip can easily scratch the pen on the way in and out. It's a daft design.
