Carry your writing tools in this elegant pencil case! These beautiful roll-up cases are made from quality traditional patterned Japanese fabric and have a soft, luxurious feel. The three inside pockets are covered by an additional fabric flap, all tied together with a thick, black cotton cord. Different fabric styles and colors available. Made in Japan.
Case dimensions: Approximately 7.1 inches (18 cm) wide and 6.9 inches (17.6 cm) tall when unrolled.
I love the relaxed feel of this pen case. We live in an engineered world, where
buildings must be able to withstand wind-storms and earthquakes that have a
frequency of occuring once every 10,000 years. What is my point? Well, it is
simply that some things need to be built to survive meteor strikes, nuclear
holocausts, getting run over by cars, and rabid dog attacks, but pen cases are
not one of those things.
Zippers are used to keep things relatively air and water tight; polyester,
nylon, and leather are the building blocks of athletic clothing, camping tents,
and protective gear for motorcycling. If you simply need a case to keep from
losing your writing instruments, to keep everything organized, and to protect
them from scratches then get this case.
If you are want for simplicity, then look no further.
P.S. If you have uncapped pencils, then store with the eraser side DOWN unlike
in the picture. otherwise you will puncture holes in the cloth.
This is a lovely soft elegant case. I've been keeping it open and unrolled on my
drafting table, pencils inside it, so they don't don't roll off onto the floor.
I like that it closes without a zipper. There can be too many zippered
things–one zippered thing inside another zippered thing, zippered inside
another thing. I can unroll this with one hand and be drawing two seconds later.
Plus, it's pretty. Artists like the pretty.
This is a beautiful case, well-made with a wonderful fabric, a clever design,
and overall appealing Japanese aesthetic. However, I wish that Saki made this
case a bit bigger (in the P-660 or P-666 size), because while the case will hold
your smaller fountain pens, gel pens, and pencils, if - like me - you want to
carry longer or full-size fountain pens, the internal pockets are a bit too
short and it becomes impossible to clip the pen to the case. This causes your
pens to move around more than is desirable. These fabrics are only available in
the P-661 size for some reason; it would be great if Saki made used this fabric
(rather than the faux-leather) with their larger rolls. Still, with that
limitation in mind, a wonderful piece of stationery.
