One of my presents for Christmas 2012 (!) was a Caran d'Ache pencil holder, which I have used on and off since. It has held up pretty well in my work bag, and usually holds a stub of a Staedtler Tradition HB. As you can see it is finished in a smart glossy red finish.
Although the quality is very good, the holder is a bit large for the Tradition so I need to put a piece of tape around the stub end of the pencil so it stays firmly held on to the holder.
