Rustico Field Leather Notebook Review – The executive review aka the shortened version. Continue reading “Rustico Field Leather Notebook”
RichWorks Gear Field Coates This has been a review that was long overdue. I enjoy using pocket-sized notebooks for my everyday note taking and for work. These notebooks are small enough to fit just about anywhere without being obtrusive and provide enough writing space until you can get your thoughts into a more permanent form.
Urban Wrist – iZip iPad Wallet
I first heard of Urban Wrist on Instagram. I saw a picture of an iPad case in leather that I had initially thought was an “This Is Ground” Mod-Mini. (http://thisisground.com/collections/mod) Upon close inspection I quickly discovered it was not. After some questions on Instagram were answered, I placed my order.

Nock Co. Hightower
Nock Co. is the brainchild of Jeffery Bruckwicki and Brad Dowdy. I don’t remember exactly where I heard about Nock Co., I think it was an Instagram photo that started it for me. Later, I heard Brad talk about it on the Pen Addict Podcast. At that point, I did not have a Kickstarter account, but a few minutes later, I was signed up and waiting for the announcement that the Nock Co. campaign was live. A few months later, I had my Kickstarter Edition Hightower. I have been EDC’ing it ever since. Continue reading “Inktronics Reviews The Nock Co. Hightower”
I thought I would share this as it dawned on me that I have not reviewed it and I find it very useful. I have been using the Booksling Mini pen holder and works for even my biggest pens. It fits a Quo Vadis Habana just fine and I have been using it since 2011 with no issues. The pen is cheap and not why I bought it. I don’t think I have the pen anymore nor did I ever use it.

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:
and a black version:

Those on my social media feeds may have already seen this but I felt it needed a post on the blog. My wife likes to sew and she came across some material that she thought I might like. After looking at a pen wrap I have, she came up with this. 🙂 After all, a Fountain Pen Sith Lord needs to store his pens in style. 😀
