Preferences For Pen Cases?



Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Just wondering if anyone could tell me their personal preference for what to carry their fountain pens in? I'm looking for my boyfriend who uses fountain pens every day. He takes them to use at work and I'm thinking having some kind of carrying case would be a nice gift.

 

I've looked at different types but I thought it best to ask those who use them what is the most practical or preferred way.

 

Thanks for any input you have :)

What kind of budget are you looking at? How many pens does he take daily? Material preferences?

 

I am a leather person - so I use leather cases I got off FPN. They take 4 pens and can fit in a pocket.

 

Consider the Pelikan 3 pen case, the Franklin-Christoph 3 pen case or the Visconti Dreamtouch leather series.

 

If you are looking for nylon material, consider Nock Co. cases.

 

Hope I helped!

A sincere man am I
From the land where palm trees grow,
And I want before I die
My soul's verses to bestow.
 
All those moments will be lost in time.
Like tears in rain.
Time to die.

I was looking to get a 3 or 4 pen case and was hoping to stay under 60.00 CAD but with shipping and the exchange rate from USD, that's tough to do.

 

I've been looking at the Franklin-Chrisoph 3 pen case but I'm going to check out the other ones you've mentioned. :)

+ 1 for Pelikan 3 pen cases, my favorite. And should be (just) whiting your budget if you get free shipping:

I also like the Pilot Pensemble 5 pens roll, and the black one should be within your budget (but it takes a while to arrive from Japan):

Finally there is this Pilot 3 pen case that my wife has and I like a lot too (will be getting one for me as soon as possible):

All three are made of very good quality leather, so it's more a matter of the style you prefer.

 

Good luck.

All four of my carry cases are Nock Co. A couple of Lookouts, a Hightower, & a 3 pen/2 compartment bifold model that doesn't seem to be on their site anymore whose name I seem to have forgotten. They hold up well.

Definitely a nice gift, it depends on how many pens he carries, and his personal taste... As an example here are mine, the one on the left is a simple canvas case in a colour I like, the one in the middle is padded and stands on its own, the one on the right is a classic made from cow hide (unfortunately for a vegetarian!). I am also waiting for the NockCo lookout.

I have one of those and use it daily. It is very nice indeed. I fit my Parker 45 and 2 Sheaffer Imperials in there and even occasionally sneak in a fourth pen if it isn't too fat.

 

I use this and my Pilot Somes every single day. I like the Pilot cases much much more than the FC cases.

      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.
    • Arkanabar
      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
