ToolComb Wooden Pen and Brush Stand Holder

$36.00 USD

100% Handmade in Turkey

The ToolComb Wooden Pen and Brush Stand is handcrafted from solid wood. Inspired by a mid-century Danish design, it makes the perfect vintage accessory for your desk. It's also the perfect paintbrush holder for an artist. Holds up to 13 pens and fits most sizes of fountain pens.

Size: 8x8x10 cm
Hole Size: 15 mm


This pen holder inspired by Danish designer Jens Quistgaard's designs. Known with his famous teak pepper grinders. We love his style, minimalist clean designs. Actual wooden tool comb designed by our founder, Fikret Zeynep, who passed away in 2019. So each design, each piece at Galen, has a different meaning for us.

Great desk accessory!

I don’t know why I waited so long to purchase this! The wood is gorgeous and my Kaweco’s fit perfectly! Lovely extra goodies as always from Galen and incredibly fast shipping!

Maura Flood (Camarillo, US)
Love my Tool Comb!

Why this is called a tool “comb,” I have no idea. It is a compact, well-made holder that can easily be used for fountain pens. Mine houses my collection of Kaweco pens - an idea I got from the photos on Galen Leather’s website. If my Kaweco collection expands (and it probably will!), I’ll be back to buy another tool comb.

Claire N (Alexandria, US)

This was perfect -- exactly what I was hoping for and expecting. I use it exclusively for my Retro 51 pens, which fit great and don't rub on the sides. Arrived extremely quickly too!

Love the Holder

This holder is great! It is unique and holds all of my pens no matter the girth. It is very well made and attractive. Love it!

Fun holder not just for fountian pens

Love it. Can fit just about every art tool i can think of.

Michel (Zwijndrecht, NL)
Galen never disappoints.

After seeing it in the newsletter, I just hád to get the Galen "ToolComb Wooden Pen and Brush Stand Holder". I still have no clue what those words mean, but this wooden contraption holds my fountain pens beautifully. I am loving it.
This is the second order I placed with Galen. Both orders were dealt with in a very professional way, which includes great communication.

David Walter (Baltimore, US)
Love it!

Saw a picture of this online and had to hunt one down for myself. It's a beautiful addition to my desk and is a perfect size. I was afraid it was going to feel bulky since it holds so many pens, but it's just right.

Fred Kruck Jr (Warrenton, US)
Unique; perfectly sized

I really like the unusual style of this piece — I use it as a fountain pen holder and the holes are perfectly sized to hold everything straight upright, but the holes are also big enough to hold any of my pens. Tactile Turn, TWSBI Eco, my collection of brass fountain pens - they all fit. Photos to follow in Instagram this weekend….

Eilene (Ellicott City, US)
Love this!

I love the design & it is beautifully made. I love that it holds larger size fountain pens also!
