SHORT FORM - WELL worth the wait, I love it!!!

THE REST OF THE STORY
I first spotted the Point of View Pen Case - Dark Cherry quite a while ago but couldn't manage to justify to myself the full price (which is very reasonable in my opinion) for something that I didn't need, but really, really wanted.

Well, some recent sales combined to put this gem of a pen case well within my ability to justify to myself, so I purchased it. It arrived this week and I'm completely delighted.

The construction is very high quality, as is the finish, the packing materials were very thoughtfully designed to protect the case in shipment, and everything arrived in perfect order. The look and the function are all just as I'd hoped. But there was one surprise ... but even that was a pleasant one.

I've loved and used fountain pens for over 40 years, and the one thing that has always vexed me is their tendency to go "temporarily dry" while between uses. There's plenty of ink in the cartridge, but because the pen was left point up or horizontal, the flow of ink from the cartridge to the reservoir behind the nib becomes interrupted and the tip dries out. You have to shake the pen a few times to get the ink flowing again. Well, this case is designed with an inclined storage bed, and while the photos show the pens being stored uphill, I store my fountain pens pointing tip down, to keep the ink in contact with the reservoir and nib at all times, and I'm finding that this works just great. I don't get that initial "ink stall" when I start writing now. Yay!! Another reason to love this pen case.

After a few days use, I did make one tiny adjustment to the case. While the lid and case come together perfectly "as is", there is as you've seen a piece of glass in the lid. Knowing that life sometimes comes with unexpected bumps, I took the precaution of adding a tiny bit of padding to the underside of the lower corners of the lid so that when I set the lid against the base, there is less vibration. If the lid gets bumped closed while it's open, it will now land in little felt pads, not "wood against wood", jarring the glass.

My technique? I took some small round self-adhesive felt pads (about 1/2 in diameter and about 1/16 thick), cut out 90 degrees from the full circle and adhered them to the underside of the lower corners of the lid, with the 90 degree cutaway aligned with the glass so the felt pads are not visible from the outside when the case is viewed. Now when I close the lid, the closure is very soft and I know the risk of damage to the glass is reduced should the lid gets jarred closed by accident.

I highly recommend this case to anyone who loves their pens and wants to show them off and take excellent care of them.

I'd been looking at this case for some time, and now that my collection has grown to a certain point, I felt I could justify the purchase. Unfortunately, I was disappointed with the quality and feel of the case. Cosmetically, it is nice. It doesn't however feel like a solid wood case, more like a composite (I believe Levenger's description of course; just conveying my impression.) Perhaps alder is a lighter weight wood than I expected, so I can let that go. The chintzy hinges are the biggest bugaboo. They are loose and insubstantial and rattly. This probably detracts from the handling experience more than anything. I'd have been tickled to get this case for $30; for $60, it just doesn't fully meet my expectations.

The perfect gift for the students in my family

Comments about Levenger Point of View Pen Case:

Actually I secured the case because of how handsome it looked, but after a few weeks I realized that, for the first time, I was able to find a pen at a moment's notice and find it again, as I have a place for the pens used in my medical practice once I am done for the day.

That is where my pens find a home…finally.

Comments about Levenger Point of View Pen Case:

It arrived on time, the case was packaged really well, including bubble wrap.
When I finally unwrapped it, it was simply gorgeous great dark cherry finish, well constructed and the felt lining inside was very nice.
I had the glass engraved and it was done beautifully.
Great product for the price.
Thank you Levenger!

The perfect way to show off all of my fancy Levenger pens!

By 

from Sugar Land, Texas

Comments about Levenger Point of View Pen Case:

In the past, I used a closed box to store my fancy pens, but felt as if I was not enjoying them as much as I should. This pen display case is the PERFECT way to not only safely store my pens, but also let me see them and enjoy them on a daily basis. .....If you are a pen collector, this is the case for you! It's beautiful and functional. What else could you ask for?!

Comments about Levenger Point of View Pen Case:

I love this beautiful addition to my Levenger collection! Everything is precisely as you would expect from Levenger - quality, quickness in delivery, care taken in functionality. One more great experience with Levenger. You can place your fountain pens in the case, point down, and the angle of display keeps ink in the nib at all times, so no more difficulty in using your fountain pens only occasionally! Great product and I highly recommend this one.
