Visconti Stackable Pen Case

Tuesday, October 13, 2009

My fountain pen collection was expanding and I was trying to find a way to store them neatly. So I went looking around for a pen case. I found this beautiful Visconti stackable pen case at Swisher Pens. Because they had a discount on it I was to late ordering it. After one week I got an email from them that they were back in store if I still was interested. Yes, was my reaction. They shipped it very quickly to Europe. Thank you guys.

I think the quality is great. It is made of wood of good quality. It has a looking glass on top. And there's a lot of magnetic fields in it. The drawer is magnetic closed. But on the bed of the pens is also some magnetic field that keeps the pens in their positions.

The case is also stackable. I bought two of these fine cases. Up to now I have some room for more pens (I hope my wife don't reads this..... ;-D). Stacking is magnetic fixated.

Hey Woodworker,

De Parker 2e van rechts, is een Parker 25 als ik het goed zie, en geen Vector.

Bedankt voor je reviews! Keep up the good work!

Thank you Zekay...... I did not know what kind of Parker it was. Thanks for the compliment.

I agree with Zekay, Woodworker. The unknown Parker is a Parker 25. I have a similar pen, you can see it here: http://archer-rantings.blogspot.com/2009/07/parker-25.html

Cheers!
