As a tax accountant with...
June 20, 2014
As a tax accountant with an office supply/fountain pen addiction, I regularly
find myself carrying way too many pens with me in my purse from day to day. I
have bigger pen cases designed to hold lots and lots of pens, but I wanted
something small, slim and professional looking to fit into even my smaller bags.
I took a chance on this, and its been the best case I've found for my needs.
It is small, so all the other reviewers are dead on about that. But you can
actually fit a surprising amount of pens in here. Today, mine is currently
jam-packed and barely closes with three Lamy Safari fountain pens, 5 glitter gel

a better idea of what it can carry.
The brown color is fantastic too - conservative enough to be professional, still
casual enough for everyday use. The black I ordered by mistake, and so got to
see it before returning it - maybe even more professional looking in black, but
a little more generic and I rarely go for black anything! The red color seems
sassy and fun, but I consider red to be so ubiquitous it's almost like a "girly"
black. And white? For a pen case? Nuh-uh - of course I'd get ink all over it,
that's how the universe works! So brown seemed like a good compromise. And it
really fits perfectly in my purse or bag, where other pen cases can be too
bulky. If anything, it forces me to reduce the ridiculous amount of pens I carry
around with me every day to a more reasonable amount, which my back appreciates
All in all, the perfect purse or bag sized case at a great price. If I knew more
people who were into pens in my family/friends circle, I'd be giving them out as
