    Scooby. I'll send you a pm. Due to seperation I'm looking at selling most of my high end pens and therefore won't have use for this.

    I just got one of the Nockco cases last week. It's a definite steal at $20.

    If I carry a pen it is usually only a Parker Vector or more often even a Caran d'Ache 849, but I did recently acquire a Peli 1075 laptop case which, with the handy pick n pluck foam, was easily repurposed as a very capable pen case.

    After secretly mocking others for doing so I ended up buying a Pilot Somès. However I did get mine in Japan at a steep discount. I got the 3 pen flap top one. I have used it every single day since and while I rolled my eyes at everyone who said they were worth the price I'll gladly eat crow on that account. I like mine way more than I anticipated. I also have one of the cheaper Pilot Pensemble zip cases and like that a lot too but the Somès is fantastic. Only beef is that you are not getting 3 large pens in it. You can get one large pen in there or maybe 2 if the third is a snorkel or something but even there none of that M1000 biz. You can't even fit 3 CH912 in there. Not a case for monster pens but a very sweet hunk of leather.

    Sorry to pull an aged post back up from the depths of this thread but if RP is still around it would be great to see a picture of your case...

    Once upon a time I had noticed a massdrop offering of a FC leather case of two pens, it has served me well and it stylish.

    Nice! (Wow, I have been MIA a long time.)

    My wife has one of these, but it's yellow. I like the blue a lot more.

    Absolutely. It's definitely my EDC. If I do any travel, or feel I might run low, I also toss in the DIY Ink Box. With this stuff, it's all I need.



    BTW, as far as EDC, I've also recently found my other solution... I sometimes end up with a lot of down time at work, and it's perfect for correspondence, but I was always looking around to throw items into my shoulder bag to get it done. I found two different sizes of the Lihit Lab Teffa Bags (pictured is the smaller, A5 size) that can carry all my writing needs, even a beater pen if I just want to take that bag.



    This is a quick-and-dirty pic of my setup, which includes: Fabriano EcoQua dot-grid pad, PaperForFountainPens.com Tomoe River (paper) pad, grid sheets for stationery, postcards, notecards w/envelopes, Thank You cards w/envelopes, extra ink cartridges and postage, @curnowbooknleather Backpocket Journal, and a pen I won't die if I lose - a Baoer 388 (Parker Sonnet clone) with a custom italic Knox nib.

    Leather cases made by Pelikan. How many one-, two- and three-pen cases I take along depends on the purpose and length of my trip.

    It really depends on how many pens I plan to carry. If I am only carrying 3 then I use my Ducati leather pen case. If I am going to carry more I have a generic leather case that holds 12 in elastic bands and more recently a leather case that holds 13 pens. The 13 pen case is made by Wancher.

    I have an Elizabeth Newton pen roll that I carry five in. It is easy to drop into whatever bag I am carrying. Everyday I have a Nakaya Dorsal fin and a Newton Orville in ebonite. Sometimes I just carry my Dorsal Fin in a single pen wrap.

    In my shirt pocket.

    The uniform shirts I wore in the Navy had flap pockets with slots to keep the pens straight up.

    Still carry two fountain pens in my shirt pocket. For road trips, I bring a few more in a Nock case that goes in my satchel.
