The sleek, contemporary style of this easel fits any decor, and it looks as classy closed as open and exposing the pens. The finish is furniture quality, something you don't often get with other storage cases at this price. And it takes up virtually no room on a desk or on a bookshelf. I liked this product so much, I came back a few months later and ordered a second one.

This is a good news / bad news item.
The good news is the design is innovative and I like the way it presents my pens, the case is nicely constructed and finished and there are recessed magnetic clasps to hold the unit closed, a nice touch.
The bad news is the curved pen bed is a hastily molded piece of flocked plastic that varies wildly in depth, so my Lamy 2000 (a thick pen but not huge) will fit on one end but will not fit on the other. My Conklin Nozac will not fit at all. Even something as common as a Waterman Phileas is a bit of a tight fit, and not a large pen.
Long story short, the sale price is OK. The shop that made it was very skilled with wood and should have made the pen bed in wood as their skills with plastic need help.

Pen holder

By

This attractive holder is worth it when you have invested in pens. It keeps them together and protects them from the elements.

The tempered glass is a nice feature too.

Special gift

The pen easel was purchased as a gift for a pen collector with very fine taste. I was very pleased with the quality of the wood and the clever design. I had been looking for the perfect gift for him. He loved it!

Good for Average Sized Pens

By 

from Washington, DC

Site Member

I loved the case. Most of my Visconti and Omas pens fit nicely. However, I was disappointed to find that larger pens, such as my Omas Imagination, Visconti Titanic and Marlen Eclisse do not fit.
Measure carefully to make sure your pens are the appropriate size. That said, it's a gorgeous case!

Beautiful pen holder

By 

from Manhattan Beach, CA

I read the other review that said they liked it until it broke. Once I figured out how to set it up, I've left it open on my desk and I love it! It is very handy for selecting what ever pen I want at the time, and it looks beautiful. I can't speak to its durability, but the way I use it, it's great.

Excellent display

By

I purchased this as a gift for someone else and liked it so much I got one for myself. It is an excellent way to display favorite pens so they are within reach. The wood is beautiful, and the engraving is top-notch.

Beautiful, but with a hidden weakness

By 

from Boynton Beach, Florida

Site Member

I purchased one of these items from the Delray store a year ago.
For the first 10 months it worked great. Then the hidden weakness showed itself.
The unit's hinges are just brass pins, and when one works loose, like mine did, the whole unit becomes useless. The construction does not allow repair without some of the interior being removed. While it works it is great, when it breaks, it is just sad.
