Ducati Leather Pen Case

Ducati Leather Pen Case

While browsing fountain pens online, I ran into a leather pen case that peaked my interest. I don’t generally go for branding but this pen case happens to have Ducati branding on it. It is small so I decided it was alright. I have looked at three pen leather cases in the past and I have always had questions regarding my taste for larger diameter pens. Most cases looked like it would be a chore to remove the pen from the case. This is where the Ducati case is different. It has a removable “tray” that is easily pulled out using a small tab.

This tray is removable because the case is supposed to double as a glasses case. For my purpose, it just makes retrieving the pens much easier. If the tray were not removable, placing my widest diameter pens in the case was not an issue as it has plenty of room. You could leave the tray out and probably fit more pens in the case but I have an odd obsession of not letting my pens touch when in storage.

The black leather has a nice feel to it. It has a snap button closure that feels secure. The tray itself has dividers that make it so your pens do not touch. The orange “racing stripe” makes a nice accent. It is a bit large for a pant pocket. It may work in a shirt pocket but it will definitely look awkward. I have been carrying the case in my EDC bag and placing it on my desk at work. I am used to this as I do the same with a 12 pen case I already own. Overall, the case is attractive, holds three large pens with no issues, and is made of leather. Three positive things that I look for in a pen case. The bonuses is that the pens do not touch and they are easy to retrieve from the case. This makes it an overall no brainer for me.

For a bit more money, they also come in a yellow stripe version:

  1. Wow good find and thanks for the review. I am a carrier of pens on the larger size so you have peaked my interest. Looks like the length is sufficient as well.

    1. Thanks Bogon. It does look to be good with a Rhodia pad. I’ll have to compare to be sure. The Micarta has not faded. It may be the fact that all my other photos of it have been done in Instagram and have been warmed up by the effects I use. I did have trouble getting the photos to show the true orange color of the case so that may have played a factor in the Micarta color too. My section has darkened quite a bit though.
