Lihit Lab Teffa Bag in Bag - Size A5 (10" X 7.1") - Brown - LIHIT LAB A-7553-9
  This is an unbelievable..., March 15, 2013
This is an unbelievable organizer. I use it by itself, not inside a bag, and it is perfectly fine. On the inside of the main/notebook pocket I keep an older kindle fire (7.25" x 4.75" x .45") and a notebook (7.25" x 6.45" x .75"). This pocket can fit notebooks with a paper size up to 6.5" x 9.15". In the two flap pockets I keep smaller objects like wax for braces and earbuds. The larger flap pocket can fit objects smaller than 4.75" x 4.25". The smaller flap pocket fits objects smaller than 4.75" x 3". The pen pocket will not fit thick pens, and will not let irregularly shaped pens slip inside. I keep a Pilot Petit1 in the pen pocket, which slides right inside due to the streamlined shape. The two no-flap pockets are the same size and can fit items smaller than thinner than 4". Height does not matter because items can stick out of the top of the pocket. I keep my cell phone (5.5" x 3") in one of the no-flap pockets.

It seems as though no matter how much you put in this bag, it will keep nice and flat. That is why I love it!
Pentel Petit-Corre Correction Tape - 2.5 mm Width - PENTEL XZT162W
  This tape runs smoother..., March 9, 2013
This tape runs smoother than any other correction tape I have used. Some people have mentioned that it does require some work if it goes off the track, but if you just watch the tape while you correct so that it doesn't go too far from the side, it will not fall off. I recommend this tape to anyone who takes notes, writes music, or does other kinds of small corrections.
Saki P-661 Roll Pen Case with Traditional Japanese Fabric - Navy - SAKI 661077
  This is an excellent..., February 21, 2013
This is an excellent pencil case. I carry it along with a Dr. Ion Super Mega Pencil Case. This currently houses seven pens plus one pencil lead case. It is beautifully classy and small. The black fabric lining the case is quite tough, so ripping would never occur. The blue and brassy-golden cloth is very pretty. This case is a must buy!
Kaweco Ice Sport Ink Cartridge Roller Ball Pen - Medium Point - Blue Body - KAWECO 10000080
  This pen scared me quite..., February 17, 2013
This pen scared me quite a bit when I first got it. It skipped a lot. It ran scratchy. After a long process of priming and breaking in, this pen turned out to be great! I can use any kind of short international ink cartridge I want.

Pros:
Writes nicely
Cute colors
Very fun
So customizable

Cons:
Took a lot of breaking in
Bleeds quite a bit (it could just be the ink I use)
Pentel Multi 8 Lead Holder - 2 mm - PENTEL PH802
  This is such an amazing..., February 3, 2013
This is such an amazing product. Once you get the hang of using it, it will become one of your favorite writing utensils. The pencil is still a normal (medium) width even though you can store up to eight leads in it. It takes any kind of 2 mm lead also. I use this pencil mainly for adding color to illustrations, but you can use it for so many other purposes also!

There is no way to take the pencil apart- so be careful and make sure you only use this pencil correctly, or you WILL BREAK IT. Only change the lead after you put the one you used before back into the top of the pencil. Do not let careless people play with your pencil.

Overall, this pencil is wonderful for anyone who wants more in a smaller package (say you have a small pencil case). Also, this pencil does come with 8 different leads.
Kutsuwa Duplex Denim Pencil Case - Blue - KUTSUWA AK020
  This is a super cute..., January 27, 2013
This is a super cute case. It has room to carry a small selection of writing utensils, for when you can not carry them all. I found that the denim has a slightly waxy coating on the outside, nothing that would bother you of course, that makes the case much more damage and water resistant. Something I love about this case is the little strangely worded saying on it. This seems to me as a very japanese type thing, as little badly translated sayings are on a lot of my japanese things. Overall, this is a nice little informal pencil case to tote around for the essentials.
Pelikan Script Italic Calligraphy Pen - 1.5 mm Nib Width - Blue Cap - PELIKAN 940858
  This pen is a dream to..., January 26, 2013
This pen is a dream to write with. It is quite sturdy, not to mention quite pretty looking. The only drawback is that every once in a while the pen may take a second to start flowing ink. To avoid this problem, you can just hold the pen to the paper for a moment before writing the word. Other than that, there are no issues.

I use this pen with a converter, even though I use pelikan ink. The converter works very well with this pen, and there are also many compatible ink types/cartridges you can use (it takes universal standard cartridges).

Overall, this pen is a great addition to my pencil case. The 1.5 mm nib is amazing for writing varied size letters. The cap clicks on to the pen quite nicely, and if by chance the converter or cartridge pops out, it will not leak everywhere due to the screw on body.
Kutsuwa Dr. Ion Super Mega Pencil Case - Black - KUTSUWA 169DRBK
  This pencil case is very..., January 13, 2013
This pencil case is very unique. It is amazing for someone who carries a large amount of things with them. You can basically stuff whatever you want into it, but this is what I put:

-On the "pen side"-
8 sharpie markers
A small stack of notecards
12 multi 8 colored lead containers
1 kneaded eraser
1 pentel twist erase
1 multi 8 pencil
1 energel pen
1 clear candy pen
1 pelikan ink eradicator
5 pilot g2's
11 stabilo point 88's
2 lePen colored pens
1 lePen technical drawing pen
1 kuretake millennium
1 uniball vision elite
1 zig cocoiro letter pen
1 dr grip pen
1 pelikan script
4 faber-castell artist pens
1 perfection eraser-pencil
5 uniball propus window highlighters

-On the "utility" side-
2 white out tapes
1 medium size block eraser
1 Chapstick
1 white out liquid
1 tombow pit slide tape glue
1 hairband
1 mini post it note block
1 small stack of business card size papers
1 pentel pencil lead case
1 flash drive
1 pentel roll n' glue
1 calculator
1 pair of scissors

This case definitely has room for a few more pens. I attached a strap to the d rings on the sides of the case. It is a nice improvement. I really recommend this case.
Pentel Twist-Erase III Mechanical Pencil - 0.7 mm - Black Body - PENTEL QE517A
  This is my favorite pencil..., January 13, 2013
This is my favorite pencil for daily use. The eraser is easy to replace, which is obviously not very often, because it is at least an inch long (in full available length). Also, the reason I have never replaced this pencil with something like the Alpha-gel, is because the lead does not extend when the eraser is being used. If you look at the design of the pencil, you can see why. All in all, this is a great general writing or school pencil. (Also, it is one of the only twist erase pencils I have found. Papermate sells a twist erase pencil also, but it very low quality and over time pieces broke off until it was useless.)
Marvy Le Pen Technical Drawing Pen - 0.03 mm - Black - MARVY 4100-0.03
  This is my "eyelash drawing"..., November 20, 2012
This is my "eyelash drawing" pencil. It writes so small it isn't even funny. Also, to make the pen even better, the nib won't smush and break despite it's size. This is one of my new favorite pens!
