The Berlin Style baton case was designed for a client in, you guessed it, Berlin, Germany. He wanted to store his pencils inside the baton case, so this is the design I came for him. It seems in recent weeks it has started to get popular among orchestral conductors. So I have officially added it to the store!
This case obviously hides your writing utensils in an internal pocket that is sewn into the case. It takes a bit more time creating the stitch groove, a very careful process that if done wrong, requires me to start with a new front panel, hence the increased cost of the case. The pocket will fit two regular style pencils in it, snuggly at first, but you are assured that they will not fall into the dark caverns of the main pocket and become unretrievable.
It will easily fit any single type of writing utensil. The pocket is 5" deep and leaves enough room in the main compartment to fit two batons easily. You might be able to squeeze in more batons with smaller handles. And of course if you need to fit more batons into your case, then the width of your case can be adjusted. Some of the perks of working directly with the leather craftsman!
You will also feel confident packing your baton case in your travel bags as I am now including a steel rod sewn into all my cases.
