I love my new case. The quality and craftsmanship are exquisite and the color is just gorgeous! Thank you so much to the Galen team!

Excellent workmanship and great value

Love my new pen case. The metal clasp is beautiful, the color vibrant. It also fits into a purse pretty easily, and I carry a small purse. Fits all of my pens except the Benu Scepter which is very chunky. This doesn't diminish my satisfaction.

BARRIE J. (Batley, GB)
Beautiful case

This case is gorgeous! The I love the purple against the undyed interior. Really solid to protect my pens and a good size for larger pens too.

Happily met my expectations

It’s just as pretty in person and came with no scratches, dents, or other micro faults. Can fit up to my Esterbrook Esties, but anything longer might not fit lengthwise. The keyhole in the clasp is my favourite part aesthetically. Excellent customer service as well.

Beautiful work

Great Case

Nice thick leather, good stitching, great dark purple color, holds my largest pens comfortably, definitely recommended

My thoughts of my pen holder..

The pictures of the pen case does it justice. It looks just the like picture and is very usable. It is strong hard leather, instead of soft. The pen slots are wide enough for my primary pens I use. I put a piece of velcro in the inside flip of the lip so when I am at the office it gets attached to a specific spot - so it doesn't roam. When I close it, the clip keeps the pens secure and I have had a number of compliments on it already!

Extremely well-crafted.

This pen case means business and you can see it from the first moment you set your eyes on it. Tough leather, like good working boots. I’ve thrown it in a backpack, a handbag, even a canvas tote. It took a tumble with laptops and notebooks. Even then, it only has very few scratches on the back. I’ve owned it for a few months and carried it everywhere, everyday. By everywhere, I mean on public transport, school, libraries, cafes, museums, between cities. I put off writing about this case because it shows no signs of that use. I could’ve easily told you that I bought this case yesterday (at least from the front, the back does have those few scratches). Not a hair out of place. It’s wild.

Awesome purchase

Fantastic pen case. The construction is wonderful. The stitching, "old school" closure and color really make the case pop. A great addition to my bag. The perfect size.
