Good product

As all Galen products I've purchased so far, the item arrived promptly, packaged beautifully with gifts.

The stand does have imperfections and machining scratches as expected from a wooden product.

Overall I'm satisfied and happy with the item, it's not perfect but the price seems right.

Galen Leather Treasures

I debated a while before I made the decision to purchase this particular pen rest. I love the smell of the wood. It reminded me.of my uncle cutting timber. There is nothing like having something you use that brings loving memories.

Just having it on your desk feels like an upgrade to the desk. The woodwork is clean and there's no worries about rough spots scratching up my pens.

Kim (Dalseo-gu, KR)
Too many scratches

The screw is crooked, the metal plate has too many scratches. I was disappointed with it, so I asked to replace it but Galen leather said it is normal condition.
After that my email has been ignored.
I don't know the reason why but only one thing I recognized is Galen Leather never minds about customer's inconvinience.

Classic pen rest

I really liked the pen rest. It was exactly like what I imagined - finish, make and colour.

Such a great pen rest!

This pen rest is such a great size to set my pen down in between writing needs. I know that when I set it there there is no risk of it falling off of my desk risking damage. There are also tiny rubber feet on the bottom so the stand itself is sturdy on the desk and won't slide around.

Adore It

Absolutely adore this pen rest! I plan to buy more as gifts to my friends and family. Not only can I use it to hold my fountain pen, but I can put my makeup brushes on it too!
