Tailor-Made Pen Case

Recommended Posts

I wanted a single pen case to carry my fountain pens: Waterman Carène, Parker Premier and Caran d'Ache Leman.

 

I found some interesting options, but had to import them. There was also another issue: I wanted a case that could also carry a spare cartridge.

 

What I did was, based on this Lamy design,

asking for a tailor-made one at a good shoe shop at my hometown - these people know how to work with leather. They even put a kind of shammy inside, to keep the integrity of lacquer and external paiting.

 

But what makes it really tailor-made, to my "specifications", was the little "pocket" to carry the cartridge:

Not that beautifully finished, but very functional. http://www.freesmileys.org/smileys/smiley-cool14.gif

 

Regards,

Marcelo

That was really well done. Nice idea for travel if you don't want to carry an ink bottle.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
