    FPs are what pocket protectors were invented for, aren't they? Have to say, though, I'm not really sure where one would find them. Would love to see the Adler--sounds so...James Bond, as my son just helpfully suggested.

I put three photos in the following album.

    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!
    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.
    I haven't seen these in person, but from the pics on jetpens, it looks like you could fit a lot of stuff in one of those Lihits! Very nice.

    Those Lamy boxes are pretty awesome, actually. Hmmm.....

    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

    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

    These are really nicely done! For the hardened leather: did you form with hot water, soak in wax, or something else? Is there a liner material? Thanks!

    The case was formed in cold water and dried out slowly. It was lined in black suede and sewn together with black linen thread.
    I did experiment with a two pen version that was shaped to fit around the leg but I can't find it at the moment.
    There was another idea to add a card slot to the back of this type of case but I not had the time...yet.

    They don't last forever, so getting a 12-pack was a smart move on my part.

    Thought I'd add to the thread...

    Depending on how many pens I want to carry and whether or not they are longer pens I use one of two methods.

    1.) Spare microfiber glasses bag inside an old glasses hard case. I had my fiance run a couple vertical stitches down the microfiber bag so the pens can't rub and scratch each other. This works for most of my pens and tends to be the option I choose if I'm traveling for work and don't want or need to carry more than a couple pens. My Edison Menlo and Franklin-Christoph Model 2 are too long for the glasses case to snap closed.






    2.) Aston leather case. This is what I'm usually carrying around daily. It fits very easily in my laptop bag for work and looks rather nice sitting out on my desk.

    One in the pocket. The others I keep in one of my Nadia's Pen Wraps, which I love.

    Although not cheap.

    This case has been amazing.

    Porsche design case.

    The microfiber bag conversion turned out pretty amazing. Not to mention, what a great way to repurpose. http://fpgeeks.com/forum/images/smil...:thumb::thumb:

    And I think that Aston pen case would look good on anyone's desk. http://fpgeeks.com/forum/images/smil...ilies/wink.gif

    Thanks for adding those pics to the conversation!

    It's only next to a 146. So it does appear to be large.

    Yeah, I'd probably find 12 other things to stick in there if it were me. The Vic and flashlight are great choices, and I can see wanting the Kaweco, depending on the situation. Options are good.

    This is a great topic. Loved seeing everyone's daily carry. I bring pens to work all the time and having this 4-pen case lets me be as discrete/compact as possible.

    The fifth pen is usually a "cheap-er" one that I would be comfortable leaving clipped on the loop or placed in my shirt pocket as an on-the-go option.

    I really like this. Porsche Design has some really cool ideas. I just wish they didn't cost as much.
