Lightweight Pen Display Case - Hyakumi Collection
This handmade fountain pen display case is another limited edition that caught my attention. There are two versions, one is 2-floor case and another one is 4-floor.
Normally it takes around 2-3 months to wait for this pen case to be made. Wancher states that this collection is 100% handmade and I can verify it after inspecting the case.
Why this is super lightweight?
This pen case is made from Paulownia wood, one of the most lightweight wooden materials for production. In Japan, as far as I know, Paulownia wood is widely used to make Koto, a stringed musical instrument as well as many other Japanese instruments.
To store 16 pen cases, normally a wooden display case will weigh around 1 to 1.5 kg but this weighs only 800 gr.
1. Insect Deterrent
Paulownia wood contains some ingredients that repel insects, so this material is the best suited for keeping art works or expensive item.
Paulownia wood contains a large amount of tannin (a highly anti-corrosive ingredient) which make the corrosive resistant in the humid climate, inhibits the growth of mosses & bacteria, and renders durability that lasts many years.
3. Substantially free from shrinkage
Dried Paulownia wood hardly shrinks. And Paulownia products can shut out the air from its inner space and are not affected by the climate such as temperature and humidity.
4. Constant humidity is maintained
Maintaining a constant humidity is an important condition to store an item. Paulownia wood is not an exception for maintaining a constant humidity, it can be able to adjust a difference between high humidity and low humidity by absorbing and releasing moisture.
5. Heat Resistant
Paulownia wood is flame retardant. It has a non-heat conductive structure and hardly cracks when heated.
Beautiful and durable design for any pen with any size
Different from normal display case in which all blocks are divided by cloth liners, with this Hyakumi case, each block is created separately and tightly fit in the case. You can easily take out the block and use it separately as a pen holder.
The length and width of each block is 165 mm by 20 mm which can hold most of the fountain pens even the big ones such as Sailor King Professional Gear or Namiki Urushi No. 50 fountain pen.
