Golf Hole Pen Rest
See the real stuff at the 19th Hole website!
I'm always on the lookout for interesting pen cups, pen holders, pen rests and pen stands to display my own collection of pens. Often, I'm happiest to find something that didn't start out its life designed for one of those purposes! When I came across the item below, I immediately saw the possibilities and whipped out the pen in my pocket (it happened to be an oversized Sheaffer Grand Connaisseur), and eureka!, the Famous Golf Hole Pen Rest was born (the photos above show two different rests with a Pelikan 800 displayed).
These gems are perfect for the desktop of the fountain pen-collecting golfer, the weekend warrior who dreams of writing the Great American Novel about the experience of showing Tiger Woods how to really play!
Constructed of some type of ceramic/clay, they're quite hefty, weighing-in at about 1/2-pound each, which provides for a stable base that resists being accidentally pushed around (the bottom has a velveteen padding which also provides traction and helps prevent marring of the desktop).
Although designed only as a decoration, and not as a functional pen rest, the undulating topology re-created for each hole provides a near-perfect cradle for each different pen I tried (it takes a little experimentation to find the right tree, rock or hill upon which to rest -- much like real life). I only selected those which provided the ability for the pen to lay flat, or with nib slightly raised, without fear of rolling off.

Warranties and returns
If an item proves to be defective, in most cases the manufacturer's warranty will apply. However, please email us first so that we can determine the easiest way to resolve the problem to your satisfaction. In the case of fountain pens -- which are a bit more individualistic than other writing instruments -- what may at first appear to be a defect (hard starting or poor flow for example), can in almost all cases be resolved with a few simple 'tweaks' to the nib, which we'll be happy to guide you through or perhaps suggest returning to us for adjustment.
Should you wish to return a non-defective item within 3 days of receipt because it doesn't suit you for some reason, again please email us and we'll arrange an exchange, credit or refund (minus any shipping/insurance charges), if the item is returned in an 'as new' condition. If you've dipped a fountain pen to try its writing characteristics, kindly clean off any ink residue prior to shipping -- to save us both a nasty surprise .
We want you to be happy with your purchase from HisNibs.com and hope to have you join the ranks of our many long-term, repeat customers!
