IIWY, I'd add some internal dividers* in a row, ( in the manner of those in cigar holders built for two or more cigars ) to stop the pens rattling around in there, scratching each other's casings,  and possibly leaking ( due to being horizontal or inverted  during transport )..some leather cylinders stood next to each other in a row, and stuck in with contact adhesive ( it works even if you cant pre-coat both surfaces ) would work..

*One pen per cylinder.. maybe even leave some space at one end of the pen case for erasers or a small sheet of folded blotting paper,

 

I'd be a little worked about that "clear" edge or band on the outside of the case, eventually getting inky or dirty? is it sealed ?**

 

A version with "tooling"/"carving" in place of where the black panels are would be interesting..and allow for "monogramming/ personalisation"..Exclusive "one off" "Gift"..sell nicely , especially pre-Christmas, or Mothers day, or Fathers day, present for writer or artist.

 

Curiosity..The pens..for writing, or sketching, or both  ? :)

** I didn't watch the youtube..I have too many tabs open ( 1500+ ) in this browser ATM to "allow youtube" and risk crashing the browser with all that scripting..already have "here" allowed, which is "tempting fate" ..
