<![CDATA[Guide to Multi-Surface Pens]]>

Artists, scientists, engineers, and even parents often have to write on non-paper media; to do so, they use pens that write on multiple surfaces, also known as multi-surface pens. We put our multi-surface pens to the test on four common surfaces: glass, plastic, metal, and cloth. The best pens of the bunch are gathered in the recommendation sections below—most of them work well on the tested surfaces, with the exception of cloth, which has one standout pen. Read on to see the different applications and recommendations for multi-surface pens.

<![CDATA[Guide to Lead Holders]]>

If you've been using a wooden pencil to do drafting or other drawings, you should seriously consider the lead holder (also commonly called a clutch pencil). Lead holders marry the advantages of the traditional wooden pencil—variable line width and expression flexibility—with the convenience of a mechanical pencil. Mechanical pencil users can also benefit from using a lead holder; since lead holders carry thicker pieces of lead, typically 2 mm and up, lead can be freely extended without fear of it breaking. Read on to see our favorites and if a lead holder is right for you!
