    Default My Custom 3Wunder 3-pen Case 4 Years Later

    A little over 4 years ago I had a leather pen case made to my specification in exchange for one of my vintage german piston fillers.

    This has been my go to case for the last 4 years for the pens that will fit in it (my Aurora Afrika and Danitrio Mae west are too thick, and I didn't have them at the time of requesting this). Got this a few months after I first got into fountain pens.

    The full album can be seen here https://imgur.com/a/IItrblQ with the original showcase I did four years ago herehttp://pens.kbeezie.com/post/showcas...se-by-3wunder/

    His rough plan/design



    Some of the initial in progress images (from his blog entry)





    Some of the initial photographs I took when I received it







    And Now.... 4 years later

    So the dividers not only separate the pens but keep the flap clear of the pen tops and add rigidity. A nice touch. I like what time has done to the color!

    Are you sure you have the right name? Adrienne Crockett is a British female moderator on FPN, who makes pen wraps from material. Not a German man who is a leather worker.

    You're right I pulled the wrong name off my old blog entry (I used to have a wrap by her).

    And he's Austrian. (His name being Adi Dörflinger)

    What a lovely pen case! It's as beautiful today as it was when you first began using it.

    Beautiful pen case. Has the inside where the unfinished leather is softened or has it remained roughened? Any pen scratches?

    I'm wondering if there's any lined leather cases available.

    It has aged well.

    Cheers.
