Absolutely love it!

As always Galen has made another needful and useful product. I love the latch on it. Holds all my different pen types. If you find you want to hold other things in it like cvape pens, loose change, candle, potion vials, your hopes and dreams, whatever it is you can slide the divider put and use it as a case for something other than pens. Really diverse use and beautiful work.

Nice new home for my Sailor Pro Gear trio

Really like the workmanship and the fact that the leather is pre-softened.

Top quality pen case

Things I like about this pen case....quality leather, great latch, leather insert to separate pens inside the case, old world style and great stitching. I would have liked a ring or loop on the back so you could attach a retractable key holder (see pic) so your expensive pens would not ever be left behind or stolen. This case is unique in that it is made of thick leather and the owner can feel secure that their valuable pens are safe...the tradeoff is that it is heavier than most cases.

Molded 3-pen case

After having used Galen's other cases I jumped on this one when it was released.
Perfect fit for my M805/M800 fountain pens. And awesome match to my Crazy Horse covers.
My next order is about to be placed shortly.

Worth the Wait!

I really love this type of pen case, since I already own a synthetic version of this from another vendor. I really like having an insert versus a fixed divider; someone mentioned that this is the only way to go, and I heartily agree. It makes it super easy to access and store pens of various sizes and clip designs. A side benefit is the smell and feel of real leather, as well as the easy-to-operate tongue clasp. Highly recommended!

Fantastic case

I've been using this for a while now. It's perfect for vintage pens that you want to keep separate or not rely on a strap to hold them, but still want the protection of a case. Fits my larger TWSBIs fine and then also my smaller vintage. Of course, the smaller pens will move in the case so that is something to keep in mind. Has a sturdy clip and strong leather.

Lovely case, few things to note

I really love this pen case! I wanted something that looked like an old fashioned pen case, and that’s exactly what this is. It holds the perfect amount of pens for me to carry around in my bag on a daily basis. That being said, there are a couple of things that I was not aware of when I purchased.

There are a few things that are worth noting. First off, the Molded case is soft. Not a problem, but it does mean that your pens are not completely protected from getting crushed in your bag if you aren’t careful enough. I did not realize just how soft and pliable the leather would be. I own the A5 Zippered Notebook case as well, and that leather is not exactly bendable. The leather for this pen case is soft and supple, not rigid like I initially thought. I just make sure that it’s not crushed at the bottom of my bag, and my pens are fine.

The other thing that I discovered was that the insert that holds the pens does not have a bottom to it. This means that when you pull the insert out, it does nothing to help you bring the pens out as well. I do wish that the insert had a bottom like the Magnum Opus cases. It just makes it easier to get your pens out quickly. That being said, my gripe with the case does not take away from it much. I genuinely love the product, but if Galen Leather were to update it in the future, I would much rather have that insert have a bottom as well.
