    Thanks. Thought of that when my boy was about four or five (suppose that might have had something to do with it.) I think the eye glasses case is way cooler, though.

    Oh yeah, those are nice!

    Okay, those are sweet! I love the color of that ripstop--is the picture close to true? And that Revolution--just stop! Wow.

    Thanks for showing!

    Thanks, yes the colors are pretty close. The pouch is a kind of steel blue color. Jet pens has a ton of pouches, many of clever design.

    A round leather tube with a cap would be nice. The inside could be divided up into pie sections. Say maybe 4 pens. I have never made a hard case out of leather, might be a neat project.

    That's a neat idea. Perhaps you could talk to Michael (MY63) about it? See this - http://fpgeeks.com/forum/showthread....192#post145192

    A Nock three pen case, plus a Nomadic roll-type case that JetPens no longer sells. Sometimes I carry my Lihit Teffa Pen Case: http://www.jetpens.com/Lihit-Lab-Tef...-Green/pd/7668.

    I love the Nomadic pen cases.

    I also have the same Lihit Teffa case but in a dark gray. Great for storing pens currently out of rotation.

    5 inks: green, black, red, blue, purple in a Chan's handmade case. Black and blue for official stuff, everything else for notes and informal stuff.

    Either a Lamy folding cardboard case (the ones that come with Studios, CP1s and L2ks) or one of the new Franklin-Christoph zipper pouches in my murse. Usually no more than 3 pens at a time. I seem to pick my pen brands according to the usefulness of their packaging (at least some...)

    That is a project I would try to do myself. I dabble with leather now and again.

    I carry my pens in my shirt pocket or attached to my collar when I wear t-shirts. The disadvantage of the shirt pocket is that, when in a rush, the posted pen goes in my pocket. A sign of being old.... A pocket protector from the old days or a modified eyeglass case that was open topped and had a spring clip would be better. Kind of funky though. MY63, a thought for a future design when you get bored.

    Armstrong I hope you are going to share your case a round case with dividers sounds interesting.

    Hawk I have made many different types of case

    The first black with red interior has a spring clip on the back

    The purple case has a "D" ring on the back to wear on a lanyard

    IMG_9291 by my0771, on Flickr

    This black case is hardened leather designed for someone in New York who wanted to carry it in his front trouser pocket without bending the pen

    I use leather Pelikan pen cases (usually triples, but doubles and singles, too) tucked into whatever is going with me.
