Galen Leather Is So Much More

If I can give this company 100+ stars, I really would. First off, I am going to review the wonderful pen rest. This is a beautiful piece of wood, fashioned after a pen nib to hold your most precious fountain pens. It looks gorgeous on any desk (even my messy coffee table) and for the workmanship and quality, it's a STEAL. It is made with thoughtfulness and care taking into consideration what a pen lover would want in a pen rest.

The story behind this company brought me to tears and this company has left an indelible mark in my life. The founder was an amazing woman who starting a business, enduring a chronic illness to sell her leather goods. Her family has continued her legacy with passion, loving grace and memory, connecting people through the beauty of their amazing products. Their generosity should also not be overlooked as I received extra goodies with my very small purchase and felt the very special treatment of my purchase did not equate to that of a faceless internet customer, but as a dear friend who was given a very special gift. Thank you to the Galen family for making my very first purchase with you an extremely special one.

Great Product

My favorite author is Henry David Thoreau and I found the plate on the product saying “walden”.
Along with my addiction to wooden pens, this product is perfect to put pens.

Worth It!

This pen rest is perfect for displaying that one pen on your desk you use all the time. It not only shows off the pen, it also establishes an aesthetic on your desk that will have you smiling whenever you look over at it. Great craftsmanship, as always. I think it looks best with large size pens, but that's just my personal opinion. ;) You definitely won't regret getting this.

Beautiful pen rest! Love the quality products & the wonderful service. I can't say enough great things about Galen Leather! :-)

Super friendly contact and great customer support.
Super fast production
and delivery (to Frankfurt, Germany).

Wonderful, very high-quality products, the "Pen Case" as well as "the nib rest" look even more beautiful in reality than on the already good photos on the homepage.
I am sure that the two parts will reliably accompany me for a very long time and that they will acquire an even more beautiful appearance (patina) through the aging and use process.

Thank you, dear Galen Leather team, keep it up.
Stay healthy and all, all the best in this crazy time.

Lovely wishes
from Frankfurt.
