  1. This is an initial review of a 60-pen storage case, named "3 in 1 Pen Display, Carry and Storage Case" (the "Case"), manufactured (I think) and sold by Penn State Industries ("PSI"). I have no affiliation with PSI or its owners or employees and have only purchased this and some other pen storage boxes in the past. This one I received last week, so this is an early review. I thought this Case would be worth a review, as, if it works as designed, it may provide a convenient way to display pens at pen shows; it displays pens at an angle, rather than flat, and "protects" the pens (from, e.g., quick theft) with an see-through acrylic cover that must be lifted to get access to the pens. The exterior dimensions of the Case are 17" x 15.5" x 4.25" -- in metric, approximately 43.19 x 39.37 x 10.80 cm. Here are photos I took of the case standing and laying flat. In the website's description of the Case, PSI incorrectly describes it as holding 64 pens -- 32 pens in each of two sections. In fact, when one counts the foam inserts' pen spaces, there are two sections that have space for 30 pens each, for a total of 60. Here is a photo of one of the two identical foam inserts. See my next post for more.
  2. Inspired by Do-It-Yourself pen boxes (like this one by StephanV), having a STRONG aversion to the smell of tobacco rendering a re-purposed cigar box unviable, and with a desire/need to keep costs down, I decided to make my own pen box. With the input and help of a good friend with a woodshop, this is what I came up with: I'll post some process photos and a description of how I made it in the event that it may help a future fountain pen enthusiast who wants to give it a go himself.
  3. I stopped by an antique store that is going out of business and found a Sheaffer Antique display cabinet. (photo of cabinet still in the store) I was able to negotiate a final price of $60.00. It has a few minor issues but nothing big. It has the original finish, the logo on the front is in great condition, no cracks, good glass, and has the back door with the original mirror. It is missing the top tray (pictured in the photo I have attached that I found on line) and the bottom door knob and latching mechanism. I am searching for someone who may have one of these as well that wouldn't mind sharing some information on these missing items. I am looking for detailed photos etc... I think I'll just keep the original finish even though the odd in me wants it to look new as it did in the early 1900s. LOL. I am looking forward to putting in back together and filling it up with a few Sheaffers. Thank you, Rob

    Plzeň / Pilsen Pen Display; February 2, 2012

    Dear all, Couple of years back, my friend http://www.debashishchaudhuri.com/ who - among other things - is a true pen expert, invited me to take part in this tiny pen show he was then asked to arrange. It was presented during an event where guests did not expect it, but thanks to Debashish´s work, it turned out to be a success. Here are some pictures, if you are interested: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lamy_fp/sets/ or: Plzeň - pen display; Feb. 2, 2012: https://www.flickr.com/photos/lamy_fp/sets/72157649142264756/ Kind regards, Jan My FLICKR account.

  6. So, in the never-ending quest for interesting displays for our library (I work at the 2nd largest library building in Washington State, and the most upscale, LOL) I have been volunteered to do a fountain pen display, which will include books we have on the subject, and maybe some books about writing letters, fictional epistolary novels, blah blah blah. In addition to a few fountain pens, an inkwell, and maybe a blotter can anyone give me a few ideas of anything else I should include? I am going to a couple of antique stores before my display in October to find a dip pen (for historical purposes), and I'll put in a bottle of Ink or two, but any other ideas?
