Beautiful pen case!

I decided a while back to migrate my 120+ pen collection from display cases, which take too much space, to a more compact, portable, and convenient means of storage. The Girologio 48 Pen Case is perfect! The case itself is sturdy and well-made, and worlds apart from the cheap, flimsy folding cases I've seen elsewhere, that hardly seem a safe place for your valuable pens. After receiving this case, I purchased two more, in the 24-pen size. Thank you!

Girologio Brand Pen Cases Are My Favorite So Far

Firstly, I guess the first thing I notice is that this product is a high-quality leather product, clearly made to be both highly usable and durable. The zipper is mounted on nicely-flexible canvas cloth, and operates easily in both directions without any difficulties. The loops and velvet-ish soft surfaces of the interior are sure not to cause any wear on even your finest pens. I would like to mention a few things that I didn't really pick up on from the pictures, and which I found pleasantly surprising:1. The exterior leather surface is pleasingly soft -- rigid so that the case holds its shape well, but not hard like a certain other brand (which can be nice if you like it that way). Instead, the surface is soft like suede. I really like that.2. The case has 2 loops per pen, and while this is not quite as convenient as the single-loop cases, it is certainly no hassle either, as pens are easy to get in and out. When unzipped, the cloth material around the top edge of the top rows easily moves out of the way for getting pens in and out from above the top loop. One thing that is pleasantly DIFFERENT from the single-loop cases is that the lower loop holding the pen barrel securely, DEFINITELY ensures that even if the case is dropped hard on its edge (like from a 2-story building), your pens are NOT going to clank together inside and possibly be thereby damaged. This is a nice quality given how much value I place on some of my pens and their appearance. When pens start to get very pricey due to exotic materials (e.g. $800 and above), this quality in a pen case starts to become more and more important. In my opinion, while convenient, single-loop-per-pen cases would not provide adequate safety for super-exotic pens, whereas THIS (two-loop-per-pen) case would.3. In the 48-slot case, there are 2 rows of 12 slots each on the inside of both the front and back panels with a soft separator between the two panels to keep pens on opposite panels from touching each other (and possibly clanking against one another if the cases was dropped). This is evident from the pictures.4. Packing Other Stuff: Once loaded with pens, there is just enough extra space around the spine of the 48-slot case that it allows for things like spare nibs, and up to 3 small ink containers. Three Pineider Pen Fillers (10 ml) will fit end-to-end in this space and there is still some extra space for other things such as spare nibs and/or a small quantity of cleaning supplies and/or paper towel (needed sometimes on trips). In the case of TWSBI nibs, they come with their own protective cases. But if the nibs are loose, I recommend placing them in a protective case (e.g. Goulet Empty Ink Sample Vial). Alternately, either of these could be safely mounted in a pen slot.5. For those who care about where their money is going, Girologio leather products appear to be sold from headquarters in Niagara Falls, New York. I didn't find any statements about where they were made, but can only suspect they are made in the USA. (This latter is an assumption on my part.)6. After close review, this brand DOES seems to accomplish one of the aims in the mission statement on the Girologio website: Girologio believes that leather accessories for pens should be of high quality, affordable for the masses, and provide great attention to detail. With the manufacturing partner committed to this vision, Girologio has crafted a product line that is unsurpassed with respect to price and quality. I believe this aim has been achieved: it is my opinion that the Girologio brand offers the best value for the money of all the brands I have sampled so far.7. Although scuff marks would probably not even show in this soft leather, if you want to put the case into storage, or are traveling with it in the trunk of a car (or in my case the saddle bag of a motorcycle) or any other place where it could slide or bounce around while traveling, the case ships with a nicely-reusable synethetic cloth envelope with a Velcro securing tab for the flap that folds over the opening. I find this very useful for such circumstances, to keep the case looking new.Finally, I have tried a sampling of pen cases from various brands in order to find out what I liked best and what seemed most workable when carrying a small collection of pens around. Because I am so fond of the soft outer surface, it currently looks like Girologo is the brand I will be buying more of as time goes forward and as my collection grows.

Great Purchase

I lucked out and got this in the bottom shelf, no idea why it was there, as it is wonderful condition. My non-pen friends are impressed. Only negative thing I could say about it. It has caused me to feel the need to fill it up.

Virologist 48 pen case

Great case. Has plenty of room for the pens not to be scratching each other. Handy to get in and out of. Not as heavy as I was worried it might be. All in all, a superb product!

FAQs about Pen Storage

What’s the best way to store an inked fountain pen? 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

There is no right or wrong way, but a lot of people find that storing them nib up is good if your pen tends to run wet, or nib down if your pen is more dry writing.

Horizontal is never a bad way to store your pens either, and is what the majority of the Goulet Pens team does.

Here's a video on pen storage options:

Help! My pen leaks when it’s in my purse/bag/pocket! 8EDA1617-F73A-4DAF-8245-6D2BF4ABEB7B

As fountain pen ink is water based, and fountain pens are basically a controlled leak, any type of jostling motion can cause the fountain pen ink to leak out. We recommend you do not carry them loose in anything where they could get jostled and cause the ink to leak out.
