As soon as I saw it, I knew I wouldn't be using it.  If you look inside the loop, you can see the brass clip.  Trying to slide a pen through there would seem to guarantee scratches.  The company is called Asian Vintage.     fpn_1520381937__p1040028.jpg

It's not.  The Midori/Traveller loops (there's a small one for clips and a larger one for thinenr pens - I have both) has the leather pinned/riveted to the leather before the actual loop.

Thanks, I just found a picture of a real Midori.   So, the warning to those who might want this item:  There is no metal anywhere near the inside of the loop of the real Midori.  Two rivets on the real thing.  None on this fake.
