    I'm fortunate in that there is a local cigar place that had a big stack of boxes, and they sell them for $1.00 a piece, with the proceeds going to a local veteran's organization. I think that is called win-win.

    I've asked in one of the few tobacco-oriented stores left in the city (maybe even in New Zealand) and they didn't have boxes anywhere near as handsome as the ones shown here. The ones they did have were plastered with Govt. health stickers which are a pain to get off without damaging the box.

    On the other hand, a friend of ours who thought well enough of us to mark our recent wedding gave us a gift that came in this box.





    In the last image the pen in the box is a Pilot Custom 823, shown for scale. Now that I've done that I am wondering if i could use this box to store my oblique dip pens - my collection of these of these is larger than my FP collection. Musing.

    Beautiful box EoC!

    I found this in a Michael's store. It is a wood soda crate. Turned it into a wood INK crate........
