Adore It

Absolutely adore this pen rest! I plan to buy more as gifts to my friends and family. Not only can I use it to hold my fountain pen, but I can put my makeup brushes on it too!

Good vibrations.

This wooden pen stand definitely puts out good vibrations. It sits atop my desk holding two foil rain pens and I use the third slot to hold the pen cap of the pen I am writing with when Unposted. The wood is superior in feel and appearance.

Simple and perfect

Great, simple accessory keeps my babies from rolling off my desk. Previous reviewers have said the slots were small for three pens but I can fit three fair-sized fountain pens with no issue. The color is less warm in real life than the product photo but that's pretty much true of all the photos on this site; I really wish they wouldn't kick up the saturation so high on their photos, they look beautiful but people want to know what the products actually look like. Still beautiful and exactly what I wanted.

Simple and Elegant

Simple and functional. Makes the pens the focal point when in use, but looks nice even without them.

Pen rest

This is a fabulous little item that came along at the right time. I have a wooden dip pen which I love to use, but I had no way to store it when not in use. Then I saw the Walden Woodworkers pen rest from Galen Leather, and ordered it. It holds my dip pen perfectly and sits on my desk looking very attractive in front of my big brass ruler. The pen rest has slots for up to 3 pens, so I also keep a nice wooden mechanical pencil there and sometimes a fountain pen.

Charming pen rest

With three fountain pens rattling around on my desk I was greatly in need of something to keep them in order. I’m delighted with this device which goes beautifully with other nice ornaments. And made for three pens too.

Great Craftsmanship, Bit Small

I bought two of these to house my pens. They look beautiful! I was just expecting them to be a bit bigger. I own a lot of fat pens, I guess, and I can't store them very easily on the pen rests. So, keep that in mind if you have larger pens. For example, two Lamy Al-Star's and a TWSBI Eco are hard to keep all on there. Thin pens work best. Five star craftsmanship and design, three star function, for my purposes. Regardless, I'm still so glad I got these. They display my pens beautifully and look great in front of all my ink bottles! :)
