Mekuru® Pen Case - Liscio -
Flip" pen case
A small pen case for adults.
Mekuru" fits neatly in the side pocket of a bag or the breast pocket of a jacket, and allows you to carry only 2-4 important pens, smartly.
The challenge of a slim pen case
For those who carry only a select few pens, a slim and small pen case that fits in a bag or pocket is perfect.
However, the slimmer the pen case, the harder it is to see what is inside, and the harder it is to take out a pen. It is not smart if you cannot take out a pen smoothly.
Mekuru" is slim, yet solves this problem.
Flip it open and take it out in a jiffy
Mekuru features a zipper that extends to the back of the bag. This ingenuity allows the user to "flip" the top and remove the contents with a minimum of movement.
This "flipping" sensation is pleasant to the touch because of the luxurious 2mm thick leather. You can use it for a long time without worrying about the lining fraying.
Open wide to use as a pen tray
By opening the zipper wide, you can use it as a convenient pen tray while leaving it on your desk.
Compact and lean size
Holds 2-4 pens.
Because it is compact, we focused on a lean and compact size.
The leather is not bound together, and the zippers are used as gussets, so there is no waste in size at all. The exceptional leather and the perfect size make this a comfortable pen case.
Attention to detail
The zipper pull is an original, custom-made mold from YKK.
The surface has a simple design consisting only of straight lines and circles, with no logo. The holes are perfectly circular to prevent unnecessary force from being applied to the slider and to ensure durability.
The brand logo is engraved on the back of the puller as inconspicuously as possible, so as not to spoil the simple design. The convex shape also serves as a non-slip surface. The thicker the tip is when viewed from the side, this is the result of our attention to ease of picking it up.
Although it is a very small part, it is a condensation of SYRINX's design philosophy.
EXCELLA", the highest grade of YKK zipper, the pride of Japan
For the zipper, YKK's top quality "EXCELLA" zipper, which is used by many high brands, is adopted.
The difference between EXCELLA and ordinary zippers is that each element is carefully polished to the utmost precision. However, unless you use a loupe, you can hardly tell the difference from the outside. In fact, you would be surprised if I told you that normal metal fasteners move more smoothly. Since EXCELLA has less play in the engagement, it is harder to use at the beginning, and you may feel a little snagging.
So why Excela?
It is because they are different in durability. The less precise the fastener is, the less engagement, the lighter the movement is, but the longer you use it, the more trouble you will have, such as the fastener coming off. The durability of EXCELLA is said to be several times greater than that of ordinary fasteners, because each tooth (the metal part that engages) is carefully polished to the utmost precision. The more it is used, the smoother the movement becomes.
Although EXCELLA is usually used for high-end wallets and is rarely used for pencil cases, we are particular about its high quality because it is opened and closed many times every day.
Smooth-textured vacchetta leather
The leather used is vacchetta leather, which has been used in the Tuscany region of Italy since the early 9th century. The leather is tanned with vegetable tannin and soaked with oil slowly, so that you can enjoy its almost permanent moisture and glossy texture.
The silver surface is smooth and fine, with a natural color variation due to the dye finish, giving the leather an elegant and tasteful look.
The aging process of vacchetta leather stands out among other Italian leathers, and the color and luster deepen beautifully.

Animals are bound to have scratches, stains, insect bites, and other blemishes.
In ordinary leather, these are covered up with pigments and enamels.
However, this leather is dyed to preserve the original texture and feel of the leather. Therefore, the following "living proofs (natural marks)" are often engraved on the leather.
These are the unique characteristics of natural materials and are not defects. However, each person has his or her own taste in the appearance. If you wish, we can replace them. If you wish to exchange the item, please check the exchange section of " Warranty, Repair, Cancellation, and Returns" before proceeding.
The cows that are the source of this leather are raised on pasture so that they grow up in a healthy and stress-free environment. Therefore, there are many small scars and insect bites from bumps and fights. These scars are "rose scars. The better the leather grows in a natural environment, the better the quality of the leather, but the more rose scars there will be.
They are scattered throughout the leather and only small parts can be removed if they are avoided. Therefore, they are often found on large parts.
This is a unique expression of natural leather that can never be seen in man-made materials.
The most common sign that a leather is natural and not man-made is the "blood streak", a pattern unique to natural leather.
These are the traces of blood vessels under the skin. Some are faintly visible on the silver surface, some remain as light wrinkles, and some are clearly visible on the floor.
A long stripe pattern created when the complex shape of an animal is flattened into leather. It is called "tiger" because it looks like the stripes of a tiger.
Tigers are especially common around the neck, and since this leather is shoulder, tigers are frequently seen. The area around the spine, where there are many tigers, has a high fiber density and the leather is of good quality. Flat, wrinkle-free leather is not necessarily better quality.
In Italian leather, tigers are a very popular characteristic that enriches the look of the leather.
Pores and hair follicles remain in the leather and are called "pinholes.
The leather is often seen as a natural expression, especially when the leather is only dyed and has little surface treatment, as in this case.
