Acid Cigars by Drew Estates sells their wares in some handsome boxes, but most are odd shapes that don’t play well with fountain pens. This one, though, is an exception, so I decided to see what I could make of it.
The result is a box suitable for your desktop, holding your current rotation plus some small odds and ends in the compartment at the back. I complemented the simple but elegant design of the box with a wood and leather theme inside.
The box was originally unfinished inside, but luckily I had some stain that matched the exterior quite well. Since the box is quite long (8 1/4 inches inside), I added a divider at the six inch mark so that the extra length became a 2 by 4 1/2 inch compartment for paper clips, ink cartridges, etc. I lined the bottom and the sides with suede cloth that is patterned to look like tooled leather and the pen rests are lined with another suede cloth leather for some contrast. The bottom of the box is covered with a 2mm foam pad to protect your surfaces.
The box measures 5 1/4″ wide, 9″ front to back, and 2 1/4″ deep.
