The Ashton VSG Wizard is one of the few boxes deep enough for those tall Noodler’s ink bottles. It is relatively rare; this is only the second one I’ve found in nearly two years. It measures 8″ by 7″ by 4 1/2″ deep and I can fit it for ink only or for a combination of pens and ink. A combination box is especially handy on or near your desk, as it can keep your current rotation of pens plus your favorite inks ready for use, yet nicely stored.
I have not finished the interior of this box, so it can be set up according to your specifications. I am attaching pictures of a My Father Super Gordo that is similar in size to show one possible arrangement: a small pen tray for three or four pens sitting above part of the ink compartment.
The pen tray can be finished in any of my standard setups: individual wood dividers, individual covered dividers, or the “saddle” style pen compartments. Available materials include felt in red or green and microfibre suede cloth in black, yellow, dark red, Kelly green, hunter green, dark tan, light tan, and a leather-like look (still suede cloth).
The bottom of the box is covered with 2mm foam to prevent marring your desk or table top.
The Ashton VSG Wizard fitted for ink only is priced at
$40 plus shipping. Fitted like the Super Gordo with a removable tray for three or four pens, it costs $45 plus shipping. SOLD If you are interested, please email me with your location for a shipping cost quote.
