How do you store your pens? I love trying out new pen cases almost as much as I love buying new pens! While in the past I’ve collected cases from Galen, Rickshaw and the sadly-closed Nock Co., I came across the Saki Pen Rolls ($16+) while on Jetpens a few weeks ago, and wanted to give them a try.
These Japanese-made pen rolls are made with traditional Japanese prints on the outside, and plain black fabric on the inside. They aren’t padded (just a few layers of fabric), and have a sturdy black cotton cord that can wrap around twice to hold them shut. Inside there are three slots for pens. Each slot can hold more than one pen, if you’re comfortable with your pens touching, or you can keep three pens relatively separated within the case. With these cases, what you see is what you get. They’re simple and perfect for dropping a few pens into a purse or bag, or carrying along with your favorite notebook.
The reason I ordered these cases is because a case from Galen or Rickshaw that will accommodate 3-6 pens will set you back more than $16. I do think they have other bonuses (more variety on prints, extra padding, etc.) but if you’re just starting out and looking for a way to carry a few pens, these Saki rolls will serve you well!
I mentioned a giveaway right? We’ll select two winners who will each win one of the Saki Pen Rolls pictured above (Purple and Maccha Green) plus some ink samples and swag. The pen cases are brand new, only used for the photos above!
TO ENTER: Leave a comment below telling me about your favorite pen case! If you don’t have one yet, let me know which color Saki Roll you’d like to win. (Play along and type in something. It makes reading through entries more interesting for me, okay?) One entry per person.
