This really upset me...
I have a Conway Stewart 20 pen case and 12 pens. It never occurred to me that I needed to have the pens loaded into the case with the pen caps nearest the open edge of the case. I had had them loaded with the caps towards the center. When you have 5 Lamy Safari/AL-Stars, this is an important fact to know, because the Lamy caps are very wide and when I went to slip my new Lamy Accent on the other side of the case and then zip it shut...
The Studio clip was pushed against the cap and it scraped off some of the coating atop of the aluminum.
It's like the way a new car always gets a door ding within 48 hours of ownership regardless if you park it within the same county as another car.
Door ding faeries. Pen ding faeries.
I'll get over it.
