    I'm interested in getting both a desk version, and perhaps a traveling holder. I've been keeping them in a pouch and I've noticed the ends bending a bit.

    I know it's frivolous, but I keep mine in a coffee mug. But, I am having one made of some armadillo hide that tanned last Spring to match a pipe bag that I am having made also. I'll post pictures when it gets here. It will fit in my shirt pocket and keep them all straight. I hope.

    Make an order from Pipemakers Emporium and they send you a plastic sleeve for holding pipe cleaners.

    That's the only kind of portable holder that I've seen. Though I assume that some of those fancy tobacco pouches would have a slot for it.

    I did some buisness with Neil Flancbaum of Smoking Holsters.com on some leather pipe socks recently. His fabriaction and quality is beyond reproach. He offers travel pipe cleaner holders made of just about any hide you are willing to pay for. You may want to check it out.

    I use a large tobacco jar in the workshop.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    For travel I put a gradual bend in some and store them in an altoids container. I also keep a 3"x4" little ziplock bag of tobacco which fits in the tin as well.(can also fit a czech tool in there too)

    Crude, but gets the job done.

    For desktop I use a very nice single stem glass flower vase. Looks as though it were made for the job. Other than that I don't have any concerns as I very rarely smoke a pipe except in my home or on the home premises.

    Go to Home Depot and get a 2" piece of threaded pipe. You decide on the material of pipe, and a base flange to screw it in. That way you can have a piece of pipe holding pipe cleaners.

    You're welcome!!!

    Here's my desktop pipe cleaner holder. It's made by Corning and holds over 400ml of pipe cleaners. I keep about 5 different kinds in it: Thin, thick, bristles in a couple different brands. I'm not sure if these were made specifically for holding pipe cleaners, but it works ok, and it was free.

    YAY Woodsy!!! +400ml worth

    Plus, if you decide to dump them all out at once, they'll pour out evenly.

    The Teflon was an impulsive splurge, but I like it.

    Truck: bag of cleaners in the console.
    House: old vase.
    Pack: bag of cleaners stuffed in amongst the lenses.

    Usually there is a fistful in my vest and my jacket.

    Also, if you buy Dill's, they come in a cardboard holder already.

    Like Cosmic, I have a large coffee cup on my desk that will hold 4-5 bundles of Pipe cleaners. I made one from the trunk of a small ( 1 1/2" ) Cherry tree that I cut. Used a piece about 3" long and drilled a 1" hole in it about 2" deep. I keep it on the table by my recliner.

    Based upon an idea prompted by the images posted above by Jeremy Baum, why couldn't one use a soft eyeglass case such as is pictured below?

    I cut a piece of 1/4" copper tubing and soldered a cap on one end, then friction-fit a cap on the other. A pipe to keep pipe cleaners in...

    For desk top or pipe shelf, a pencil/pen holder might do the trick, especially if you keep a good supply of pipe cleaners on hand. Or you could put a piece of folded cardboard in there if your supply dwindles and you want to keep them upright. The high price cigar tube sounds like a winner for a portable pipe cleaner case, and
    it gives you an excuse to buy and smoke a fancy cigar. Dill's cardboard case is also excellent. The inside pocket of a sports jacket or suit jacket will keep pipe cleaners
    in pretty good shape if you don't use it otherwise, but don't put pipe cleaners in any garment you would run through the washer or dryer; you don't want those little wires in the laundry machine gears.
