Giveaway: Galen Leather Pen Cases

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

Galen Leather generously sent us two pen cases to share with you.

Galen Leather Cases

The first is the Leather Flap Pen Case for Three Pens in Brown ($44.00).  This is a very classic pocket pen case, and holds three of your favorite pens near and dear to your heart.

The leather is a rich brown and the edges are beveled, waxed and burnished for a finished feel.  The case is slim – I couldn’t fit a Platinum 3776 into it, so I stuck with a Lamy Logo, a Kara’s Kustoms Fountain K and a Pilot Metropolitan.

The second case we received from Galen is the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown ($45.00).  This is a zippered case with three pen slots on each side, and two super soft suede flaps that cover each side of the case and keep your pens from touching each other.

This is a nice case as well and held most of my pens comfortably.  The slots here are bigger and could accommodate a wider pen, although a super long pen might not fit.  The case measures 15.5 cm (6″)  x 9.5 cm (3.75″) when closed and obviously there is a bit less height inside because of the zipper.


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, July 1, 2018. All entries must be submitted at, not Twitter, Tumblr or Facebook, okay? Winner will be announced on Monday, July 2. 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.

DISCLAIMER: The items included in giveaway were provided free of charge by Galen Leather. Please see the About page for more details.

  1. I really like the look of the 3-pen case – I’d love to win that one.

    Question: Do you think a Lamy Safari would fit in it?

  2. I would like the Galen Flap case for three pens. Thank you and Galen for doing this.

  3. What a wonderful giveaway! If chosen, I’d opt for the six-pen model. Thank you very much for the opportunity!

  4. Galen Leather products are gorgeous. I have notebook covers in two sizes in Crazy Horse Brown (which I bought after seeing a review on The Desk). The zippered case would be the perfect companion.

    ps.- I love that you share generously with your readers 🙂

  5. I’d love the zippered pen case! It looks awesome. And I love the leather they used.

  6. I think you’re going to get a lot of comments on this one – these are both very nice cases.

  7. Gloriously beautiful cases. I would love both.

    Since I must choose, I would like the 6 pen case. I have 6 favorites of mine that come to work with me each day. This would be perfect for that.

  8. Those cases are absolutely gorgeous! The zippered one is my favorite – I don’t have a case like that, yet!

  9. Wow, great giveaway! I would take either of them – they’re beautiful. But that zippered one would get pressed into service immediately upon being received! Wonderful.

  10. Ooh! The zippered one – love the look of the leather. This is an amazing giveaway!

  11. Both are simply gorgeous but I’d live the six pen case if I won.

    Thanks for the giveaway and thanks to Galen Leather!

  12. Oh, I would love to win the zippered pencase. What a beautiful leather and perfect for thicker pens.

  13. Thanks to The Desk and Galen Leather for this awesome GAW.
    I think the 3 pen case is beautiful.

  14. Galen Leather products are so gorgeous; they’ve been on my wishlist for a long time. I’d love to win the 3-pen case.

  15. Since I only ink up about three pens at a time, the three pen, flap closure case would probably be more my speed. Excited to see this opportunity–huge thanks to Galen Leathers for providing the cases!

  16. I would love the 6 pen case, my husband has been looking for a case for his tiny (but growing) fountain pen collection and this would leave him with a bit of space. I may just have to get one for him anyways…

  17. The pocket case. Let’s see… Three pens? That should be about right for a day!

  18. Hello!

    I would love to win the zippered 6-pen case, and thanks for the giveaway!

  19. Is it fair to say that I’d be happy with either one of them? Because it’s true!

  20. Thanks for the giveaway! The 6 slot pen case would best fit my usage, and I like the look of it.

  21. Either one would be great but I definitely favor the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown because it looks like you could fit a small notepad inside along with the pens.. Eithe way, thanks for the opportunity.

  22. Thanks and a great review btw. For me it’s the three pen case. Not a fan of zipper cases.

  23. Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown is my pick! I like the way the stretchy strappies might give a little more room for tubby pens…

  24. Thank you and Galen Leather for this opportunity to own such great looking pieces. If lucky enough, I’d love the 3 pen flap case.

  25. I’d love the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown. Looks rugged.

  26. The three-pen case would be perfect for carrying in my bag for school.

  27. I really love the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown; that leather looks like it distresses beautifully with age. Thank you for the opportunity!!

  28. I would love to win that flap case- thanks for doing the giveaway!
    Happy Summer! ☀️

  29. I’d be interested in the flap case. I have the 10 pen version of the other case, and the suede flaps are seriously fraying. Not a fan of that design.

  30. The second case with 6 slots would be the holder that I prefer if I were to be chosen. I absolutely love the look of these and can’t imagine the texture. Thank you for having such a nice giveaway. This is my first time entering one of your contest. 🙂

  31. I would love to win the Galen is the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown!

  32. I’d love to get the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen Case in Crazy Horse Brown even though the first one’s appearance is more attractive but the second one would be more functional!

  33. Love the smell of leather! Would put the 6-pen case to great use. Thanks for the opportunity!

  34. I love the leather flap. I have exactly three fountain pens and would love to be able to carry them in such a gorgeous case

  35. Thank you for hosting the giveaway! I really love the zippered leather case. If I actually win something I might just fall over in a heap.

  36. The flap, three pens case — looks like a very handy size. Thanks for doing the giveaway.

  38. I would absolutely love the 6 pen Zippered Case in Crazy Horse brown. It would fit my favorite implements perfectly. They are both beautiful. Thank you.

  39. The flap case is a perfect way to transport and protect. Nice give-away. Thank you!

  40. Those are some lovely leather pen cases by Galen Leather and so it’s hard to choose between the two! So I’ll have to pick the Leather Zippered 6 Slots Pen case as I prefer my cases with a zip. Thanks for the giveaway!

  41. I would love the 6 pen case since you said it will hold larger pens. I’ve been looking for a case that will hold my Fat Rotring core pens

  42. I can really use a nice leather pen case for my EDC pens. They need protection!!

  43. I love this blog! I would love to get the 6 pen case. Perfect for protecting my pens in my purse or at work. Even R.N.s need the perfect tool for the job!

  44. The pen cases are lovely! Thank you for this giveaway – so kind of you!

    If I were to win, I would like the small 3 Pen piece – it’s very compact and purse/pocket convenient, isn’t it?!? 🙂

  45. Those cases are lovely! I’d love the first case if available. Best of luck to everyone who enters!

  46. The Flap Leather Pen Case is gorgeous. Great for taking a few choice pens on the go! Thanks for hosting this giveaway. Very generous of you!

  47. I find myself drawn to the 6 pen zippered case because I think it would hold my every day writing pens and a few sample vials of ink.

  48. Lovely looking pen cases. 6 pen case would be such a pleasure to own. Just placed my 1st Galen order for a notebook cover.

  49. My buddy Neil Young would want me to win The Crazy Horse brown that holds 6.

  50. The three-pen flap case is quite nice, so I’d love to win that one. So glad to see meet Ana at the STL Pen show this weekend!

  51. I love the 6 pen case. Galen leather looks like a good member of our pen community

  52. I would absolutely love the 6-pen zippered case in Crazy Horse brown. It would fit my favorite implements perfectly. They are both beautiful. Thank you.

  53. Oh, I’d love to win the 3-pen case if I could!! I’m still slowly and tentatively transitioning from getting into fountain pens for the first time and collecting some lower-end models, and I haven’t made the investment in any sort of case yet — and I’m going through college, so I certainly don’t have the money!! That 3-pen case would probably work better for me as well… and heaven knows it looks wonderful

  54. I am in love with the leather flap pen case in brown. It’s a manly looking thing, but would be most cherished by a woman’s touch, my touch. My back jean pocket is itching to cradle such a beautiful, beasty product. I would lovingly feed it the beautiful pens that it would deserve should it become mine. I feel like I’m window shopping. Sigh… Gonna keep eyes, fingers, and toes crossed.

  55. They’re both beautiful, but I think I like the zippered 6 slot pen case better.

  56. Both are very nice, but I would love to win the zippered pen case. It’s perfect for my needs. Thanks for the giveaway!

  57. What gorgeous leather from Turkey! I am looking forward to one day owning a writing box and a Leuchturrm case from Galen leather. A giveaway is the perfect place to (hopefully) start my collection. I’d like the 6 pen case please!

  58. I love zippered cases so would love the 6-pen case! Thanks for the giveaway and the review. Galen Leather is wonderful – I have a zippered Weeks Mega and love it!

  59. I love the zippered case. That looks perfect to carry pens around safely. Thanks

  60. The three plan flap case would be perfect for me. Thanks for doing this giveaway.

  61. I would like the three pen case, I would be able to carry my EDC pens with it.

  62. Gorgeous give away! Thank you so much! I would love the 6 pen case. LOVE your blog!

  63. I’d like to win the zippered 6 slot pen case. Thanks for the chance!

  64. The zippered case would make a great gift for my son, who makes pens. Both are beautiful, and I’d love to win one.

  65. I like the Three pens in brown zippered case. Thank you Galen Leather for sharing this with us!

  66. Ooh, tough choice, but I think I’d love the zippered 6-pen case! The more pens in a case, the merrier! 🙂

  67. I would love, love the zipper case it will go perfectly with my new travelers notebook and my new fountain pen I just unboxed. So excited to begin this new journey and look forward to making a awesome collection.
    I found your site just yesterday…while surfing youtube I became hooked on journaling which lead to all kinds of places! Within a week I’ve ordered my first travelers journel, fountain pen and paper, and have met many like minded people. Its the fountain pen that lead me to you while searching how to write on unlined paper. Your site is full of information and I am very thankful for the guides I was able to print…I printed them all on transparencies.
    Thank you, your site is very valuable to all but especially informative to this newby.
