    Looking for great and beautiful Apple Pencil Cases? Google,Amazon for chopsticks with cases!
    There are many out there, and they have more or less the same length.
    This saves the Pencil or Pencil Nib from breaking in you backpack. :)

    They actually start at £28 although the colours are limited. That said I rather pay more for a quality product that is going to last then a low price for something that will inevitably be need to be replaced plus won't look or feel as good and is not specifically made for the pencil.

    I purchased this in smooth black leather, yet I haven't received it. I too would rather pay for quality.

    I totally agree on paying for quality and not cheap. I just think personally this is a way over inflated price :p

    Year i saw this, but i fear loosing the Pencil Cap. Its also just leather and doesnt save it from bending in a backpack.
    An hard box is saver.

    Yeah a toothbrush box is not bad too, but somewhat ugly.
    Thats why i had the chopstick idea.
    They exist if different designs, even with HelloKitty designs for Kitty fans, lol.

    I got this Cosmos pencil case from Amazon for $10. The description said it was ready for Apple Pencil and Wacom Styluses and that's exactly what I needed it for. I had to put a microfiber cloth beneath the rubber thingies holding the pencil (without it the Pencil felt loose), but with the little cleaning cloth (I carry around anyway) it is firmly in place (even when shaking the case) and the case itself is hard and unbendable so I think it provides some nice protection.

    Note - I found an identical case branded Case Star too. It's probably the same case :)

    Nice, Do you have a link to where you bought it? Also was the CaseStar brand cheaper? I searched on Amazon but didn't see it.

    Can't find the Cosmos version any more, but here is the Case Star. It's priced the same. It seems this one comes with two capacitive styluses too :D But the case looks identical to mine.

    The CaseStar case came in and it works great. Just the right size. Thanks Aevan for the link above.

    Surely you've the skill, don't need much, and time to do that yourself, £55 really? If you want to spend silly money get a Graf von Faber-Castell case, have one, very well made. Wouldn't have one if it didn't come with a GVF pencil I picked up cheap though.

    ?? My links / post that you quoted were to an $8 (£6) single pen case, and a couple of loop style holders for about the same price as another alternative.

    Perhaps you quoted the wrong post, or the link went to one of the bigger cases for you, or shipping across the pond a bit much?

    $8 doesn't seem too bad for this (if the Apple pencil fits)

    Hey it's like Apple made it.
    --- Post Merged, Feb 24, 2016 ---
    True, hey if we paid 80 pounds for the pencil what's 40 more? Ha

    I've just ordered my apple pencil magnet

    I agree with you about the soft case not offering much protection for the pencil. A hard case would definitely be better.

    You'll love it. Works brilliantly. Not very versetile if you go out and about with it, but great if it's stuck on your desk next to you all day. Wouldnt be without mine :)

    Appart from sticking to the top bezel it'll also glue itself to the space bar too if you wish :)

    Yeah will be ideal just to stick at the top or even on the Smart Cover in certain areas when putting it in my bag

    That's interesting. I purchased one, tried to put it on but it was WAY too tight--couldn't get the tip of the Pencil to make it out the other end no matter how hard I twisted or tugged. Tried inserting the Pencil from either end, no joy.

    What's worse is that the second time I couldn't even get the sucker off. Finally had to CUT it off.

    Useless piece of junk, IMHO.
