Hi everyone! I've had this case for about two days, so it's not so much a review as it is an overview, but even so, I figured I'd share.

 

Last week, my in-laws gifted me a Pelikan M1000 as a college graduation gift, and I wanted a pen sleeve/case to keep it safe in my bag. I like to use my stuff, but I didn't want it getting all dinged up with all the odds and ends in my bag. The Pelikan case was too expensive for me, and so i headed over to Etsy to see if I could find something good. I came across a shop on there called Lepus Leather, which seemed to have some pretty good looking pen cases for about $18. They ranged from 1-5 pens in size and came in a variety of leather colors. I was afraid the big Pelikan wouldn't fit, so I messaged them and sent the dimensions, and they said they would make me a larger one at no extra charge. They also include monogramming in the cost. The work was fast, and a week later I was holding it my hand after it had come all the way from Poland.

 

To try and rate it, I'll use the following categories:

 

Looks : 5/5

 

It's really good looking. It looks really expensive. The monogramming it well done, and the font choice isn't something you see everyday. The stitching is a good color compared to the leather. Small-1.jpg

 

Feel: 5/5

 

It's hard leather, and extremely thick, so there's pretty much no flex. I do photography for several leather bag makers, and can attest that it is good leather. The outside is smooth finished, and the inside is an extremely fine suede texture that should keep your pen scratch free.Small-2.jpg

 

Functionality: 5/5

 

Being made specifically to hold an M1000, it does perfectly at this role. the flap top closes securely, and the case is sized ins such a way that the pen doesn't have to be forced in, but yet doesn't seem to rub or wiggle when shaken. A small cutout at the top allows the pen to be easily grasped by the finial to be removed. I also like that the back of the case is flat, so that it takes up very little space in my bag, being molded leather, it is crush resistant, and would easily protect a pen from a substantial fall. Small-4.jpg

 

Cost: 6/5

 

For what you're getting, the price is insanely good. Like I said, I photograph leather goods as one of my side jobs, and so I understand the cost that goes into them. The case is very well made, and if I find myself in need of more cases, I wouldn't hesitate to purchase from here again. Small-3.jpg

Glad to do it! I looked for a few hours for a pen case, so maybe this will save others some time.😊

I have to agree, this really sets off a great pen, I am tempted even though I don't need another pen case at the moment.

Very pretty.

Is it me or is the link to Lepus Leather on Etsy missing in this entire thread?

 

Anyway, I found this:
