Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.3 mm - Black - PILOT LHM-15C3-B
  AMAZING pen - one of..., May 21, 2014
AMAZING pen - one of my go-go gel ink writing implements. However, I prefer the better-flowing 0.4mm to the 0.3mm. However, I would give this a 4.5 stars since I'm buying yet ANOTHER black 0.3mm Maica right now... so I cannot say it isn't great. The limitations are as follows: 1) Scratchy in some instances but not all 2) occasionally skips 3) Fragile tip so it would be of limited use for heavy-pressing writers. Great pen at a great price. Once again, if I could I would give this a 4.5 instead of a 4, but that's sadly not an option. It's a great part of my pen portfolio & I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Black - PILOT LHM-15C4-B
  I have no less than 15..., May 21, 2014
I have no less than 15 of these babies....ranging in point size. But my absolutely favorite is the 0.4mm black pen. It's a serious bargain and it lasts a very long time. Granted, I have at least 4 on my desk at any given time, so I've never used one exclusively to the end of the ink capacity. The one thing to be careful with is the delicateness of the point. If you are a hard-pressing writer, perhaps you should re-consider the purchase. But if you are average to delicate, this is your pen. The 0.4mm rarely skips (0.3 occasionally has an ink flow issue) and does not bleed or soak through. It's versatile, attractive and one of my go-to pens. It's a gem in every point size, but by far the 0.4mm is the reigning king of the Maica Gel Ink kingdom!
Dong-A Miffy Scented Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Black - DONGA MIFFY 31
  What bang for the buck!..., May 21, 2014
What bang for the buck! This comical pen probably deserves a 4.5 simply because the scent just detracts from it's appeal, but I gave it 5 stars because for the price, it's one heck of a pen....and more. I like the fun cartoon embellishments, the darkness of the ink, and the nice width of point. I like that it has a cap rather than a retractable point. All this for that price. Wow! I came back today to buy two more, and couldn't resist writing a review touting the features of Miffy's 0.5mm pen!
Uni Mitsubishi Propus 2 Double-Sided Highlighter - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Sky Blue - UNI PUS101TN.48
  I just love the Propus..., March 26, 2014
I just love the Propus & Propus 2 highlighters. This particular number is perfect for my needs, but I must confess that I do not use it as chronically or extensively as the initial reviewer who uses highlighters as a full-time student. I use it every day, but no extensively. I own no less than 15 Propus and Propus2 colors, and it is definitely a go-to pen. The versatility of having both wide & fine points in one pen is pretty cool and for my purposes, they last about as long as expected, if not longer. I do love the blue, but if you need more than one, get yourself one of the hot pink Propus 2's and you will NOT be sorry.
Tombow Ippo Pinch-Point Pencil Sharpener - Blue - TOMBOW SM-IP41
  Terrific little sharpener,..., March 26, 2014
Terrific little sharpener, more durable than expected, and of course compact! I own no less than 30 types of sharpeners. Some might call me obsessive, others might say I was a connoisseur of sharpeners. Regardless, I not only ordered this product, but I RE-ordered it....dare I say more than once. I thought the spring would break and it has not - I thought the clip would break but it hasn't (yet). My only complaint, since I need to give you at least one - is that once the clip opened in my pencil case, and a few pencil shavings were released.... but this only happened once, so it did not detract from giving this little number FIVE STARS! And for $3.30 USD.....WHAT A DEAL?! Not convinced?? Order it and you too will believe! :)
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - Black Ink - PENTEL BG202-A
  In general, I don't just..., December 1, 2013
In general, I don't just love Slicci pens, I LOVE them. Love. However, I would steer you toward the 0.3, 0.4 (my fave) or 0.7mm which I have given a 5 out of 5 stars (but would love to give them a 10 out of 5 stars if possible!). The 0.25mm Slicci skips a lot, always feels on the verge of dried out, and with the least amount of pressure, bends the tip rendering it useless. It feels strange giving any Slicci 2 out of 5 stars, b/c I use this brand the most of ANY pen I own (and I own more than most here can imagine) but the 0.25mm doesn't do the name justice, and I think they need to either improve its function/design or just stick to what they do better than well, wider width tips. Buy the Slicci, just not the 0.25. 0.3 and 0.4 are plenty fine - and the 0.3 seems to write like a 0.25 of other brands, so you won't sacrifice in fine-ness, but will get significantly better quality if you just size up. Slicci is a bargain for the quality, and once you find the width that works, buy a lot, but watch out if you store the refills - I've had issues with ink drying even in fully packaged refills, but that's for another review! :)
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Black Ink - PENTEL BG207-A
  Let me prefaces my review..., December 1, 2013
Let me prefaces my review by saying how much I adore the Pentel Slicci pens in general. I love them, and have just about every size in many colors - but my second favorite is this, the 0.7mm black Gel Ink Pen. My fave is the same pen in a 0.4mm size (which appears not to be in stock currently). This pen is fantastic...does not skip and produces a very nice dark line. It does tend to use a lot more ink than the 0.4mm but then again that goes without saying since it's a 0.7mm. Considering the price, quality and usability, this pen is clearly a 5 out of 5 stars and I would HIGHLY recommend this to one and all. But since you are still on this site if you are currently reading my review.... go put the 0.4mm AND the 0.3mm in your cart. However, after purchasing all the other widths, I recommend you avoid the 0.25mm width because I find it skips more than it writes, and even considering the thin width of the line, it is nowhere near dark enough. For the tiny width lines, I would go to another model instead of the Slicci (several here on Jet Pens are amazing) or consider a drawing pen. Anyway, I would give the Slicci 0.3 - 0.7 ten stars if that were possible!
Uni Propus Window Double-Sided Highlighter Pen - 4.0 mm / 0.6 mm Twin Tip - Green - UNI PUS102T.6
  I think at this point,..., December 1, 2013
I think at this point, I have well over 10 Propus Highlighters. I like the softness of the edges, ability to fill in with the fine-line end and the precision. The only drawback I have experienced isn't universal throughout all of them, but has happened with this product - how long it can last. Some have full lives, others seem to have a very limited life of use. I give this product 5 stars, but think it would be 4.5 stars if that was a choice. I will continue to use and purchase this product in many colors, but don't expect all of them to be super long-lasting.
B.B.Begonia Leaf-it Memo Note Set (20 Sheets / Leaf) - Maple - Yellow - C209YL003S
  I agree with the initial..., May 4, 2013
I agree with the initial reviewer - they are beautiful. But as far as usefulness, no so much. The glue is not up to snuff, and if they functioned more like brand name Post-It notes, I would buy tons of them. But they tend to stick together, and leave a layer of glue on the next sheet. I do, occasionally use them on calendars or notepads and they look adorable. I use permanent markers on them because the sheets tend to be a tad resistant to non-durable gel ink pens. the cuteness factor is a 5/5 but the usefulness and price factor into it, it brings me to an overall rating of 3/5.
Adhesive Memo Notes - Animal Series - Panda - 2.8" X 2.9" - 50 sheets  - MZD-01
  This adhesive panda note..., May 4, 2013
This adhesive panda note pad is definitely adorable. But at 5.75, I would expect a more usable pad. It gets a 5/5 for cuteness, and for the idea...but after having it for a while (months), the adhesive on the sheets became (or may have always been) overly aggressive, and the sheets were pretty hard to pull apart. If this worked like a real post-it pad, I would not mind the price tag. But for the price, I would have expected sheets that were easier to remove. If you are too aggressive pulling them off, they tear, leaving their sticky part on the pad. I actually wanted to give this a 2 of 5, but the cuteness factor made me go for 3 of 5. If you're looking for cute, and pricey...get it. But use it right away, so if you can't pull the pages apart, you know it's not for lack of trying it right away!
