Your Magnet - Mobile Accessory - Red
  I received this when..., January 19, 2014
I received this when I won a JetPens giveaway, I probably wouldn't have spent the money on it's really a surprisingly nice item! It attaches to the back of my Samsung Galaxy easily, stays attached without moving or slipping, and removes easily. The coolest thing, EVERYONE does a double take because they think it's an actual magnet, so it's really fun to use, and I get to spread the word about JetPens. After seeing the prices of other phone stands, the price isn't really that bad at all. I'm certainly grateful to have won this giveaway!
JetPens Kaweco Sport Exclusive Music Print Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - JETPENS KW1 F
  Really great pen, especially..., January 16, 2014
Really great pen, especially at the sale price. When I first received it I was anxious to get it started, and I just inserted the cartridge that came with it without flushing it with water first; it wrote well but the first stroke on each letter didn't have any ink flow. I took the cartridge out, put a drop of liquid soap inside and then flushed it like crazy, let it dry, then inserted another cartridge (the Kaweco sepia, sweet color) and primed it by squeezing just a little, and now it writes like a champ. I wrote for a couple hours the first night with no skips or blobs or misses. I can't believe I didn't buy one of these years ago. The first fountain pen I ever tried was a big heavy brick of a thing that needed constant care, and it turned me off fountain pens for a long time, but I couldn't resist this print and price of this one, and I'm really glad I bought it. Can't wait to collect more colors and sizes!
Zebra Limited Edition Sarasa Clip Sweets Party Scented Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Chocolate Brownie - Black - ZEBRA JJ29-S-BK

Writes very well, looks very pretty with the little bit of sparkle, but I can just barely smell it. Bummer. Maybe it's just my nose.
Uni Power Tank Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Black Body - Black Ink - UNI SN200PT07.24
  This is a little too..., January 11, 2014
This is a little too fine a point for me to use for every day, but the grip and feel of the pen are awesome. If I could get a refill larger than 1.0 (like really really broad) I might use it more often, but it's not a deal-breaker. I keep it in my bag for those times I need to sign a receipt (not all pens work well on that thermal paper, and I don't like to use the germ-infested pens that retailers keep at the counter). It just feels great in my hand; I'm going to keep my eyes open for a larger refill.
Maruman Mnemosyne Today's Act Note Pad - A6 (4.1" X 5.8") - Special Rule + Perforations - 80 Sheets - MARUMAN N197
  This quality of this..., January 11, 2014
This quality of this notepad is so nice that I didn't want to use it as a to-do checklist, but the way the page is laid out it's irresistable not to. I use a very modified version of David Allen's GTD system, and I was previously using a ruler and drawing an extra line in another notepad to create the same type of layout this notepad already has. Works well with every single pen in my desk drawer, fits in the side pocket of my handbag, and everyone who sees it asks me where I found it. Worth every penny.
Pentel Tradio Stylo and Pulaman Fountain Pen Refill Cartridge - Black - PENTEL MLJ20-AO
  Scratchy and imperfect..., January 11, 2014
Scratchy and imperfect in the very best way possible, I use this refill in the Tradio Nature Matte body, and it's really satisfying to use for short lists and notes...not for long writing sessions, but I love the feathering and feel of it. Nifty and unusual.
Pentel Tradio EnerGel Combo Gel Ink Pen - Nature Matte Body - 0.7 mm - Brown Body - Black Ink - PENTEL TRL92E-A

Not my cup of tea, but it does have it's good points. I love the color and the matte finish, love both the Energel and the Pulaman refill for it, but it's just too lightweight and the cap doesn't stay posted for me. If I could figure out a way to put some weight in the area around the pen cartridge in the body, I would, but I haven't quite figured out how to do it and keep the balance right.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Brown - PILOT LHM-15C4-BN
  Lovely pen, lovely ink..., January 11, 2014
Lovely pen, lovely ink color. I'm using it in my Field Notes grid notebook, (the Lagers version with tan grid lines) and it's a perfect partner, very matchy-matchy. I didn't realize how delicate the tip was, and I bent it a little when I first started using it, but it doesn't affect the performance at all. I gave it 4 stars because I wish it had a clip, I'm keeping it attached to the notebook by sliding it under a rubber band, and it finds it's way to the bottom of my bag on a regular basis.
Clairefontaine Collection 1951 Notebook - 5.75" x 8.25" - Lined - 48 Sheets - Black - CLAIREFONTAINE 195236
  Very luxurious paper,..., January 11, 2014
Very luxurious paper, I find myself running my fingers over the paper in the notebook when I'm not actually writing in it. I like to use Pentel Energel and Pilot G-2 wider tip pens, and they work really well, as does my Fisher medium point Space pen. I also use a Hi-Tec-C Maica .4, and that didn't do so well, but I think that's more about the wide rule, the pen worked fine on the paper, but I found myself writing really large letters to fill in the line and it just didn't feel comfortable. Cheaper ballpoint pens (InkJoy and Parker Quink) seem to need more friction to write well than this paper gives, but that's OK, I prefer the gel pens anyway. The ONLY negative I can think of: I wish the rule were thinner, I prefer 6.5mm over any other. But that didn't stop me from ordering one in each color a few minutes ago! I'm hooked. I see a future of a shelf full of a rainbow assortment of these notebooks.
Pilot Dr. Grip 4+1 4 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - White Body - PILOT PBKHDF1SF-W
  The refills which came..., June 5, 2011
The refills which came with this pen write very nicely, a fine line but not too fine, and no globs or smearing. The pen is well-made and is a very nice color, a pearly white and the grip looks like it matches really well. I don't rate it well because, for me, it's too difficult to write with: the silicon/rubber grip is too loose. I tend to grip my pens and pencils a little tightly, and it makes the grip on this pen slide all over the metal sleeve underneath of it.
