Best case yet!

Recently received this case after looking for something suitable for ages. Have to say I am impressed on all fronts. The design easily accommodates even my biggest pens, and with the removable insert - an inspired idea - the pens slide in and out effortlessly. The leather is wonderful to the touch and still has that new leather smell, which I confess I do like! While the finish on the leather is not quite as distressed as I imagined it would be, my own use of the case will no doubt add additional character to it. Prior to this I was using a softer material case, but this new Galen Leather 5 pen case will be much more protective and I will be able to carry my pens with confidence!

I received a pen case from “Galen Leather” (Turkey: Istanbul).

The handmade 5 pieces, the removable pen tray, the texture of the leather and the brass fasteners are really nice.

I am looking forward to aging and it is a wonderful product that can be used for a lifetime.

Sentimental choice, delight!

My order arrived very quickly, perfectly secured, with lovely giveaways [coffee and tea sachets, a beautiful card with a sentence, a discount coupon for next purchases, "Evil Eye" pendant - thank You! - and ... ;-) what a wonderful smell of a refreshing handkerchief - tobacco - such a trifle, and how much surprised and pleased me! Thank You!]. Old school leather molded pen case for five pens - it was my first choice and purchase at Galen Leather. I liked the old-school look, the inner part - the separator for five fountain pens - can be removed, plus the clasp like in my father's old briefcase. A sentimental choice, but well-thought-out and I don't regret it. I am delighted with the quality and precision of workmanship. And it is beautiful! I was surprised that the case is rather soft, because in the photos it looked like stiff leather, but in a good way soft, it works very well, and the surface of the scented leather is almost velvety to the touch. I am very grateful, I have been using pen case for a month and I would not change it for any other! [although I have already made two more purchases, two different, differently fastened cases, so that all my fountain pens have well-padded cots ;-)]. Thank You! And I recommend shopping here definitely, to all undecided future customers. These are beautifully handcrafted little pieces that will last a lifetime.

The must have

The feel, the look, the smell of leather is unbeatable. Galen leather pen cases are the best

a must have!

This pen case is beyond beautiful. The pictures do not accurately portray how lovely it is in person. A lot of care went into making this case as well as the packaging. Included was tea and coffee from Turkey plus who made the case. Thanks Yusuf! It was tough to decide which pens to put in here but ultimately I decided on: Pilot Vanishing Point, Lamy 2000, Sailor Pro Gear Slim, Monteverde Ritma, and Lamy Studio.

올드스쿨. 레트로한 펜 파우치!

기본적으로 매우 부드러운 짙은 갈색 가죽과 걸쇠, 기리메 칠 안되어 있는 절단면등 레트로 감성이 물씬 난다. 내부 칸막이는 undyed 가죽으로 언밸런스 하지만 태닝(에이징) 시키면 괜찮을것 같다. 몽블랑 149도 잘 들어가는걸 보아서 큰 펜들도 무난하게 들고 다닐 수있다. 자석식 5구파우치와는 또 다른 매력이 있는 파우치 이다.
