The brilliantly designed Neo Critz pencil case by Kokuyo combines function with style. Zip it up and carry it as a pouch when on the go, then once you're settled at your desk, open the case and fold back the top to convert it into a standing pen holder. Watch the transformation in the video below! As a standing pen and pencil holder, it takes up little space on the desk, perfect for those of us who never have enough space. Your pens and pencils are displayed well and easy to grab. There are two small pockets that come in handy for stashing some correction tape, erasers, and lead.
Try using this case for other purposes too. Kokuyo reports that many ladies enjoy using it as a makeup pouch!

I don't think I can ever...
I don't think I can ever use a different pencil case! I purchased this one as a backup for my current Neo Critz I bought in Japan (the dark green exterior with yellow interior). My current Neo Critz has held up extremely well. I take it to work with me daily, it gets taken out of my bag, resides on my desk until the end of the day, then I toss it back into my bag. I've done this daily now for over 5 years, and there's not a tear in sight! The quality and make of this pencil case is phenomenal! The cardboard that makes up the 'holder' part of the pencil case is sturdy, and I've never had the pencil case fall over when exchanging pens.
It holds a fair amount of pens and pencils. Currently, I have about 12 various writing utensils (an assortment of Muji pens, Pilot Hi-Tec-C, a pencil, and 3 mechanical pencils), some post-it tabs, two kinds of lead, a small mono eraser in the front pocket, a ruler, and a mini white out roller. The best part... I think it can still hold more!
I do sometimes wish that they had installed a thin divider to divide the compartment into two, so I could maybe separate my pens from pencils, but it's not a significant enough issue.
If you own a lot of pens/pencils, and don't want to have to dig through a traditional pencil case to find the one you want, this is definitely the pencil case for you. I will not be using anything other than the Neo Critiz for a long while!

My kids gave me one for my birthday and it is AWESOME.
Holds a lot of pens and functions well as a pen cup when I'm working in and out of my studio.
Very handy and compact. I recommend it HIGHLY!
You will dig it!
