This Partagas “Homage to Benji” is one of the most beautiful boxes I’ve found, and it was really fun deciding how best to finish it as a pen box.
The box features a glossy two-toned dark and light brown exterior finish. The arched lid is dark, with a tasteful emblem in the center, while the remainder of the box is lighter in color. It has a magnetic closure rather than a more traditional latch.
It measures 10 1/2 inches by 7 3/4 inches by 2 5/8 inches and will hold ten pens, each up to 6 3/4 inches long.
I have stained and varnished the interior surfaces, which were unfinished wood, in a color to complement the exterior.
The pen compartment is lined in patterned two-tone gold microsuede cloth. The pen holders are stained wood with the individual pen slots lined in the same gold cloth.
The bottom of the box is covered with a 2mm thick foam pad.
The Partagas Homage to Benji ten pen box is priced at
