Giveaway: Yak Leather Pen Cases from Pen Boutique

Today we have a pen case giveaway for two lucky readers of The Desk.

Pen Boutique generously sent us two pen cases to share with you. The first is the Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case, Black (Reg $80.00, Sale $49.99). As the name implies, this black buffalo leather case was designed to hold 24 of your most precious pens.

The case is divided into two sides, each with 12 pen loops. The loops themselves are interesting; they are double loops with leather loops on top and elastic loops underneath, to hold your pens securely in place.

The divider between the sides is removable (it is held in place by velcro) so this case can function either as a travel case or to display your pens. The case closes with a sturdy zipper, and there are even slots where you can lock the case closed with a small travel lock. Closed, the case measures 13″ x 9.25″ (32.5 cm x 23 cm).

In general I was impressed by this pen case. It seems sturdy and well made, and the leather is nice and soft. My only complaint is that the soft black velvet inside seems to attract lots of dust and fuzz – it was crazy difficult to photograph without all those little motes showing.

The second case we received from Pen Boutique is the Yak Leather Premium One Pen Pouch, Brown ($20.00).  This is a brown leather case, with a classic look and a flap that folds over. It is perfect for holding a pen in your pocket with style.  When closed the case is approximately 7″ x 1.5″ (17.5 cm x 3.75 cm).

This is a nice case as well and held most of my pens comfortably.  My only complaint about this case is that it is somewhat stiff.  This might be the point of the case (to provide a more rigid case for your pen), though I expect it the leather might break in and soften a bit over time.

TO ENTER: Leave a comment ON THIS POST ON THE BLOG and tell us which pen case you would like to win! Only one of each model is available so in drawing a winner, we will select the first name and they will win the pen case they have chosen. The second name selected will win the pen case they have chosen, assuming it is not the same model selected by winner #1. If they picked the same model, we will select another name until we have selected someone who has chosen a different pen case… and so on, until we have given away both cases. Make sense?

FINE PRINT: All entries must be submitted by 10pm CST on Sunday, April 29, 2018. All entries must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Monday, April 30. Winner will be selected by random number generator from entries that played by the rules (see above). Please include your actual email address in the comment form so that I can contact you if you win. I will not save email addresses or sell them to anyone — pinky swear – just email you if you win. If winner does not respond within 7 days, I will draw a new giveaway winner. Shipping via USPS first class. Additional shipping options or insurance will have to be paid by the winner. We are generous but we’re not made of money. US residents and APO/FPO only please.

  1. Beautiful leatherwork! I would love the single pen case, it’s a lovely piece of leather. Thanks for the giveaway!

  2. I like them both, so I’d be happy to win either one! But if I have to choose, I especially like the single pen holder. I don’t know how many times I reach into my purse and can’t find my pen because it’s worked its way deep into the pocket where it lives.

  3. What a great giveaway! I would love BOTH – or either one! The big case would suit my needs better, but both would be wonderful.

  4. Both are beautiful but I would love to have the 24-pen case. It would hold most, if not all, of my collection!

  5. Ooh. Nice give-away and perfect timing. I’ve accumulated about 10 pens thus far and most are still in the “pleather” case they were shipped in. I’ve been on the hunt for a case that holds about 10-12 pens.

  6. Excellent giveaway Ana! I would love to win the Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case. Thanks so much … ️

  7. Thank you for the opportunity to win. I have a lot of pens, which are stored in a larger case. However, I do not have something to take one pen with me as my daily writer. I think the single pen case would best suite my needs currently. Gorgeous craftsmanship too!

  8. Decisions, decisions! 🙂 I would love to win the 24 pen case! I’m fairly new to fountain pens, but already have nearly enough to fill that case so it would be awesome to have a special place to keep them all!
    Thank you for this opportunity!

  9. The Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case would be the perfect carrying solution to the multiple pen notebook system I’ve worked out. Four recent pen purchases from Pen Boutique now have me needing a protective carrier. The Yak case would be fantastic!

  10. Hi, Laura!

    Thanks so much for your review and for the giveaway! I would love to win the black Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case. 🙂

  11. Hi to The Desk,
    Thank you for the opportunity to win the Yak Leather Premium Black 24 pen case.

  12. I would like the 24 pen case! That way I can have fun adding to my collection so I can fill it up!

  13. Thanks for the great giveaway! I would prefer the Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case.

  14. I would like the 24 pen case because it would be great for carrying my pens.

  15. I wouldn’t mind winning the 24-pen case. I need an excuse to add to my pen gear collection.

  16. I really appreciate nice leatherwork. They both look beautiful and interesting company name. I think I would go for the single pen holder.

  17. Thanks for doing the give-away. I really like the looks of the 24 pen case. Thanks! Dave

  18. Oooh! I love both cases, but if I have to choose I would rather have the 12 pen case.

    Thank you, as always, for such a generous give away!! LOVE your blog!

  19. I would love the single pen case for carrying a mechanical pencil in my purse/computer bag (because I don’t wear shirts with pockets so pocket protectors aren’t applicable, OK?) I’ve tried a number of ways to cap the pencil to protect me from the lead but I keep getting stabbed — those 7mm Kuru Toga leads are SHARP!

  20. 24 pens would be much more fun to work towards filling…it has my vote! 😀

  21. I think I have about 24 pens so that sized case would be perfect to win! Haha! Thank you.

  22. Funny! I had just been reviewing these Pen Cases from Yak Leather! I would really like to WIN the Black 24 Pen Leather Case…..Thank You for being so kind as to offer these as a Give-Away!

  23. I would live the 24 pen case. Beautiful style and colour and my collection would look good in it

  24. Wow, that large case would sure come in handy, my dumb pens are all over the place. Count me in, and thanks for the giveaway.

  25. Of course both are lovely but if I was to make a choice I would choose the 24 pen case. I have been looking for a nicer place to put my pens and pencils lately. (All mechanical as befits that sort of case)

  26. I’d love the 24 pen case, I’m trying to reorganize my pens and my most used could use a place where they could all hang out together!

  27. Finally a case that will hold FAT Fountain Pens. I’ve been looking for a case that will hold my Rotring Core Pens!

  28. I would love either one, but if I have to pick, I love the beauty of the brown one pouch.

  29. I’d go with the one pen pouch as I don’t know if I’d put all my pens in one place.

  30. I like the Yak Leather Premium One Pen Pouch, Brown as I only carry one pen at a time with me. Both products, however, are nice

  31. I would love the one pen case. I have had my gold cross pen for 35 years! I use it mainly for writing checks an IF I let someone borrow it, I stand there to make sure I get it back. I’m always searching the bottom of my purse for it, so I would love this case.

  32. I’d like to win the single pen case – the 24-pen case is really nice, but my pen collection (1 Lamy Safari and 2 Preppy Platinums) would look lost and silly in it. ^_^

  33. I’ve just been thinking I need to invest in a pen case, and the larger one would fit all my pens with a little room to spare!

  34. The 24 pen case would come in handy. Just discovered fountain pens and the collection is growing rapidly.

  35. I have a terrible weakness for brown leather and a brown leather chic sparrow that I don’t trust my fountain pens in.

  36. I love the look of the single pen holder. The leather looks like it will break in over time.

  37. Like some other comments, I’ve outgrown the first pen case I bought and could use the Yak Leather Premium 24-Pen Case, Black. Though if I was the second name chose, I could certainly use the single pen case. =)

  38. Hi,
    These both look really nice. I don’t have a single pen case, so that would be the one I’d be most interested in winning.

  39. Wow, these are fantastic pen cases. Pen Chalet’s price is pretty incredible, too. Great job all around for the Desk and PC.

  40. I would gladly accept the 24 pen case! That is a fabulous item! My Watermans would be so happy encased in such elegant luxury!

  41. I would like the Yak Leather Premium One Pen Pouch. It would protect a fountain pen in a pencil bag.

  42. Thanks for the opportunity. I would love to win the Yak Leather Premium One Pen Pouch
