    Default Single pen box for Namiki (Emperor) #50?

    I'm looking for a nice single wooden box for my new Namiki (Emperor) #50 Urushi pen. Does anyone have a specific item to suggest?

    Thanks,

    Scot

    In case anyone finds this later, here are two solutions I've found so far, although not the desk box I was looking for:
    Rickshaw bags will make a custom pouch for the Namiki - they say it's size 3XL, but they seem to speak fountain pens, so you can probably just specifiy your pen in the comments of your custom order.
    https://www.etsy.com/shop/AEGEANLEATHERCo - these look interesting, but I haven't ordered yet; I probably will unless I find something else better soon....

    Following up to my own post (does it count as a post if it's just a conversation with myself - I got all three of those products and each are great. The Rickshaw coozy is the cheapest and I tend to use it more often, but the two leather options add some heft and are good for going out and about a bit. Jemar makes a 1,2, and I think a 3 cigar/pen case. I've only tried the one, but it's made and works really well.

    I didn't quite find the box I was looking for, but I repurposed an old pencil box I had around. It works well enough, but I'd still do something else if I found something a bit more tailored for this particular need.

    I put my impressions up on youtube, too, if you're interested. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBLvmL_8oXo

    This is a late reply, but anyway. I am happy with https://www.sakurafountainpengallery...-toyooka-craft, it takes three Emperors and a Nakaya long cigar model in one tray. Beautiful wood and finish.

    Thanks - looks like some nice choices. I'm still keeping my eyes open for a box solution.

    Many pen stores and online retailers offer various pen boxes designed to fit different pen rainbow friends sizes, and some of them can accommodate larger pens.

    I finally found the box I was looking for - although now one for two Emperor-sized pens.


    It's a relatively simple lacquered box from a department store in Tokyo. I made the divider and it's just perfect for two large pens!
