For The Pen Geek Who Has Everything - A $50 Cartridge Case!



Recommended Posts

Okay, technically it's just $44.04. But I bet it would climb with the postage, particularly if you're not in Japan.

 

It's made by Pilot in collab with another brand, presumably of leather goods since it's all leather (anyone knowledgeable about Japanese brands care to weigh in?) As far as I can tell it closes with a magnetic flap, and those look like Pilot cartridges in the piccy, so Int'l standard might be a poor fit. Bah! Then it won't work for me, tsk tsk.

 

(yep, it's that, and NOT the fact that my regular pen budget tops out at $30 each lol)

I carry my cartridges in a "Velamint" tin. I feel like such a slub. I wonder how many cartridges fit in a sliver

snuff box.

my carts are bundled three or four together with an elastic and use up one elastic slot in a pen case. 4 on top elastic 4 on bottom elastic and then you have 8!!!

The leather company is Somés Saddle. I have a couple of the items in Pilot's Somés collection (the three-pen pocket case and the desktop box with removable tray, but not the cart holder). They were expensive, but thankfully not made out of air and advertising: the leathers and workmanship are high quality and beautiful to handle, and I think will last a long, long time with a little care.

Wow, those look perfect! And the logos and stuff on the cover don't look half bad, actually! Pretty sure you could get the same size in blank and decorate it if you wanted, though :-)

 

I see your silver snuff box, and I raise you one of those fancy silver cigarette cases - for long Int'l Standard cartridges or Parker carts :P

Love this! So simple and immediate :-)

Thanks for the name! It did look like some pretty high-quality stuff, so I'm glad to hear it was more than looks! Love the expression 'made of air and advertizing' :P With your permission I'll start using it - there's a lot of things about that this describes perfectly yet concisely!

 

This is why Game Boy cart cases exist.

haha, I really wouldn't have a clue! I'm completely video-game illiterate, I'm afraid :P

      Even so, you'd end up with a fragmented list, and it becomes an O(N²) process for each prospective requestor to check what is available: effectively recreate the list of currently active servers (without any reliable up-to-date info upfront about the inks and number of samples on offer in the thread) from the sequential list of posts, which may be spread over two or even more pages, and then query each server independently to check what is currently on offer.   It comes down to not hav

      If one wanted to do this, one could just use the "About Me" field which appears to be unlimited in size.  And if a bunch of people wanted to cooperate, the Member Title field (or signature) could be used to this end - "Ink Giver" (or some such) could be used by those with inks to give...  No software edits required.

      I suppose the update issue could be mitigated.  One would post a link in signature, to the particular part of your profile where you list the inks that you're willing to post samples to others, gratis.  But looking at profiles, I suspect that would require an edit to the board's software, potentially a nontrivial task.
    • A Smug Dill
      I read your idea as getting willing givers to publicly register as members of a set of heterogenous servers, in a system in which a client would explicitly select an available server from a list, to which he/she will then send a request privately and asynchronously. Request handling in the system is unmanaged, and individual requests are handled by the targeted servers completely independently on each other. I think the model is fine, although there are some operational concerns you may want to
    • Daneaxe
      First thought on the method/system of ink sharing: Think the best way, to begin with, is to follow the way of the US thread: offer up a (small) list of inks you are willing to PIF, to whoever expresses interest. Write clearly in the "mission statement" how it works, with a tiny "quid pro quo" that even a struggling student can comply with, i.e. post your opinion and a writing sample, with option of a full review if desired.   So yours truly might say: "I'm offering up samples of D
