From The Desk - of Florida Bob

pencil case

Bob from Florida recently sent in a few photos of his Rosetta 20-pen case. As you can see it’s very well stocked, a case to be reckoned with. Bob’s only problem is that his wife and other ‘artistic’ relatives keep taking a liking to the contents, and frequent replenishment expeditions are required. He’s not entirely sure whether he should be thanking me or blaming me for all the money he’s spent on pencils…he's going to decide when he’s spent some more.

Looks like quite a smart pencil case. Pretty sleek way of storing and protecting a treasured collection. That Graphite 771 sort of sticks out huh? Well at least it's showing how the Rosetta case can hold wider barrel items.

Get a gun cabinet or fire proof safe and lock those suckers up.

Hm. I had found a similar case elsewhere that I was debating picking up, but one of the things that holds me back is the fact that it is made of leather. Same here but then I noticed "Ballistic Nylon/Napa Leather".
I searched Napa leather hoping it was a term for faux leather but rather the opposite, so I'm a bit confused - is it that it employs leather as well as nylon or that it is Ballistic nylon/faux leather (whatever one fancies)?

I'm an idiot, it is nylon made to imitate the smooth texture of "Nap(p)a leather" (the stuff found in high end car interiors according to wikipedia) obviously, ugh.

Or not: "Ballistic nylon with black leather trim"
