We’ve been carrying these Quiver Pen Holders for a few weeks now, but with the Christmas hustle bustle and all that holiday eggnog, I haven’t gotten around to giving a little more attention to them.
These pen holders are made out of real leather, and you can see the precision of the stitching around them. Each holder will fit one medium-large sized pen (below in the black I have the Platinum 3776 and in the brown I have a Lamy 2000).
If you’re using non-fountain pens, like disposable gel pens, or skinny fountain pens like the CP1, you can squeeze in two.
The elastic on the back is nice and strong, giving you good tension so it doesn’t slide around on you. It is designed to fit an A5 notebook, such as the Rhodia A5 Webnotebooks, Leuchtturm A5 Large Hardcover Notebooks, and Moleskine (though we don’t carry those). These don’t fit on the larger Habana Notebooks.
Over time the leather will start to soften a bit, and especially if you put your notebook into a bag or use it well, you may find it really starting to get that leather patina. You can see on the bottom of the pen holder starting to develop that aged leather glow (with a little sunlight reflection help!). This may also be because we get people picking it up and rubbing the leather to see how it feels in the shop.
Of course, being that I run a pen shop, where we hope that your pens serve you well and write for you for many, many years, I love products that will last for many years and with good use. My leather Midori is starting to get that I-am-leather-and-I-am-loved look, and I have a leather satchel that I’ve used for years. These leather pen holders are designed to keep with you for as long as you need, as you move them from notebook to notebook.
