Handmade Leather Wet Mold Pen Case For 5 Pens With Old School Closure


Undyed Leather - Not covered Un-dyed leather means, nude leather, with nothing covered up - so this kind of leather will have some natural marks, scars, and other blemishes. In other words, this leather has not been processed to make them appear perfect, like something you would get in a department store. When you get your brand new un-dyed vegetable-tanned leather good, it looks a natural color. The hide is effectively naked and so will age and darken with the sun just like your own skin. Aging will help it develop a rich color and patina. Sun exposure, daily handling, water, and conditioning give natural vegetable tanned leather a rustic look over time.  Read more about vegetable-tanned leather.


Will fit pens up to about 15 cm long and 1.5 cm in barrel diameter.

Came with several stains/scratches

My pen case came with several stains/scratches which became even more prominent after applying leather balm. I do understand that leather products may have some imperfections but the number and extent of them was really a lot more than I expected. Certainly not the quality I expected paying quite a large sum for a pen case. Generally not happy with the purchase

Dear Leila, sorry to hear that your dissatisfaction. Actually these pen cases made of undyed leather, means there is no covering and finishing. And due to molding technic we can see some imperfections , marks. Which is stated product descriptions for this color. This leather aging, getting darker in use and will get a beautiful patina. If you are still dissatisfied we can try to find a solution.

기대처럼 예뻐요

언제쯤 만족스럽게 구워질지는 모르겠지만 꽤 괜찮습니다 하지만 트레이의 끝부분에는 달리 처리가 안 되어서 트레이 그대로 꺼내놓고 사용하기는 무리가 좀 있어요 그런 일은 드물겠지만 그 틈으로 뭔가 들어가서 만년필에 손상이 가지 않을까 하는 우려도 있습니다.

Light, strong, and beautiful!!

It's a well-made case.
I'm fascinated by the natural and beautiful colors, and with fountain pens it looks more luxurious.
and leather balm is a must.

클래식한 염색안된 생지가죽 케이스

염색안된 가죽케이스는 작은 흠집이나 오염이 묻어 보이는것도 있어서 조금 실망 할 수도 있다. 하지만 태닝하고 에이징하는 과정과 결과물이 기대되기 때문에 구매 했다.
예쁘게 태닝된 케이스를 기대해본다.

Retro and perfectly me

An overseas friend sent me this for my birthday. The quality, like all my other Galen items is perfect.
The craftsmanship is amazing.
I get so many complements on it when it’s sitting on my desk at work.

New Favorite Pen Case

This is my second pen case from Galen Leather, and I'm so happy with it! The leather is beautiful. I can't wait to see how it patinas over time. The closure mechanism is sturdy and smooth, and I love the pull-out "tray" that fits inside. It's so nice to take out and put on a desk or table while writing so you can see all the pens you have with you. My only concern is that the leather on the inside of the case feels pretty rough, and I'm a bit worried that it could scuff up my pens. I've been using the case for a little over a month now and haven't noticed anything, so maybe I'm just being paranoid. Overall, I'm pleased with this case and I wish I would have purchased it before the zippered case I already have.

2nd one's a charm as well!

This is my second 'The Old School - Leather Molded Pen Case'. Got it in the undyed leather because I saw a picture of an 'aged' undyed leather in one of the reviews, and I wanted to have one to grow old with me. The undyed leather feels harder than the Distressed Leather one I got previously. It's a good, strong case to keep my fountain pens. Still love the old school brass closure. I'm waiting for the leather balm to be available, so that I can get it to condition my new case!
