Sunday Leather Craft’s Bespoke Pocket Knife and Pen Case

I asked Toto of Sunday Leather Craft to make me a leather simple leather case so I can carry my pocket knife and fountain pen together. Since it’s nearly impossible to find a case that was meant for this purpose, the only way to go is bespoke.

I like that the case is super simple. It uses a soft kind of leather, and the stitches go well with the color of my knife.

The length is just right, and it does the job well enough. I just made a slight modification to the pen slot to make it easier to pull out.

Since the pen is so slim, putting it in a roomier pouch will not hold it securely. I trimmed the top of the pen slot a bit to make it easy to pull out the pen. Not to mention that it shows off the Kaweco Liliput logo nicely. 🙂

Bespoke Leather Pen Case from Alunsina

Last year I asked Alunsina Handbound Books to make me a leather pen case. I didn’t want anything too flashy, I just wanted a safe way to carry my pens around and pull them out faster. I wanted to try an alternative to my usual pen wrap. I sent them an example of the case that I prefer and then just waited for them to finish. I realize that I placed my order at a bad time because the end of the year is a very busy time for them. So, a few days ago they sent me what I ordered for.

I liked it a lot, though the pen slots were initially a tight fit for most my pens. Then I realized that I needed to stretch the leather slots a bit by actually pushing a Sharpie through them. That seemed to do the trick, though it still doesn’t fit my bigger pens like the Bexley and the Micarta. The others have no problem fitting.

It has a space to fit in one jotter notebook, but I realized that since the outer leather is thick and holds its shape, I can use the space for the notebook as an extra space for my other pens. It can fit 7 pens (4 in the slots and 3 in the grooves between them). Actually, you can fit in 9 if you use the leftmost and rightmost grooves too. I used those grooves for my Parker 51 pencil and my Parker 45 Harlequin ballpoint pen. The thick leather holds its shape and holds all the pens in place.

The size of the whole case is about an in or so longer than Kislap, but it’s small enough to fit comfortably in my bag.
