If you're a fan of pens, you may already know about Brad Dowdy, the man known as The Pen Addict. His blog is a popular read for pen addicts everywhere and The Pen Addict Podcast which he hosts alongside Myke Hurley is a favourite for many of us pen people.
Brad's problem was that although he could find lots of pens he loved, he had no such luck with finding ways to carry them. When he got into discussions with Jeffrey Bruckwicki, they hit on the answer - design and make their own cases, to some seriously exacting standards. So they did, and shared them with the world.
