Pilot Juice Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - 12 Color Set - PILOT LJU-120EF-12C
  Let me start off by saying..., February 6, 2014
Let me start off by saying that I'm not really the type of person to pick and choose brands or to outright hate an entire brand's product line. I generally enjoy Pilot's products and have enjoyed many of their high-quality writing instruments. Unfortunately, I have few positive things to say about the Pilot Juice pens.

Pros:
+ There is a very wide selection of colors, some of which are very unique.
+ The first time I saw a spring-clip, I thought it was the dumbest and most useless idea ever. I was wrong.
+ The general design of the pen is cute and simple.

Cons:
- These may be the scratchiest gel pens that I have ever written with, even at 0.5 mm. I couldn't imagine how scratchy the 0.38 mm is.
- The Hi-Tec-C 0.38 mm pen writes a million times smoother than these pens.
- When writing, even without applying pressure, you can see a line where the ball point of the pen separates the ink. I'm not sure how to describe this accurately, but it basically looks like a hollow line; the tip puts out two thin side-by-side lines because the tip scratches through the middle.
- The colors, though there are many options, are not very true-to-title. By this, I mean that the colors are not vibrant and do not closely match their names or the color of the barrel.
- I experienced a lot of skipping with the medium colors. The very darks and very lights were okay.

If you're looking for a smooth-writing gel pen with a spring-clip and a large variety of colors, I recommend the Zebra Sarasa line. They are almost identical in design and work much better in my opinion.
Inkwell Bag + Tip Cards - INKWELL PBP 2
  I'm not going to lie,..., November 22, 2013
I'm not going to lie, I didn't think this bag would hold that many items when I looked at it here. I decided to order it anyways, impulsively. I must say that I am extremely impressed with this cute little bag. There are so many things about it that I absolutely love.

Pros:
+ strong, durable material that looks and feels like it will last a long time
+ the color makes it suitable for both males and females to carry around
+ it looks small, but it unfolds into a roomy bag that's compact when closed
+ closes securely, so there should be no worries of things falling out
+ the tip cards are comical and helpful at the same time
+ it holds a lot of things, so it's great for everyday carry
+ the deep pockets allow ample space for the bulkier items (tape, staplers, etc.)

Cons:
- I really personally don't care much for velcro, so I would have used more magnetic snaps

Overall, it holds a lot, including the larger and bulkier items that you may need, and still remains compact enough to fit easily in a backpack, bag, or purse. I wish it came in more colors, but for now it's still pretty awesome!

So cute. I use mine to cut yarn, and my dad put one in his tackle box! To close it, you must push the two scissor "handles" together and then retract the tip the same way you let it out. :)
J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Fountain Pen Ink - 50 ml Bottle - Rouge Hematite - J. HERBIN H150-26
  A lot of reviews have..., August 30, 2013
A lot of reviews have mentioned that the color is a blood-red. So perfect. I kind of feel like I am writing with blood, as odd as that may sound. If you have every purchased a bottle, or when you receive yours, you will probably agree that the ink itself looks very similar to blood. Another review said that the ink was an odd shade of brown, and that is also characteristic of (dried) blood. However, on the right paper (I use kokuyo campus paper, it works well enough, as I don't carry around tons of rhodia notebooks for school notes) with a wet pen, this ink is a beautiful dark-red with the most gorgeous gold/green/red sparkle to it. So beautiful! If you have this same experience, I also recommend Sailor Jentle Sky High ink, pretty basic blue with a red sparkle sheen! This Rouge Hematite ink is beautiful inside the bottle and outside.
J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Fountain Pen Ink - 50 ml Bottle - Bleu Ocean (Ocean Blue) - J. HERBIN H150-18
  The pictures just don't..., August 30, 2013
The pictures just don't show how beautiful the bottle is. I ordered two of these, and two of the rouge hematite (one of each for me, one of each as a gift). I am sad to say, however, that BOTH of my bleu ocean inks had leaks in the box, yet I couldn't locate where it was coming from (the bottle wasn't wet, there were no cracks, the seal was intact, strange...). Since I couldn't actually find a leak, I can't dock a star. It's beautiful, and I got a sneak peak of the color of the ink in-box before using I guess!
The color is hard to describe, it is very unique. It is so different than other blue inks, the same goes with J. Herbin's forget-me-not blue (in the heart-shaped bottle). I think each individual penstroke offers something different.
J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink - 50 ml Heart-Shaped Bottle - Bleu Myosotis (Forget-Me-Not Blue) - J. HERBIN H152-15
  The presentation is beautiful...., August 30, 2013
The presentation is beautiful. I ordered two of these, and both came with very adorable (yet, both different) tissue paper in the box (less work for me!). The bottle is so cute. It is not extremely heart-shaped, as the first reviewer said, but it is heart-shaped enough to know that it is supposed to be heart-shaped. The first reviewer also said that they couldn't use this with their fountain pens- a simple solution to that would be getting a pipette or dropper to get the ink out. Another possibility would be to get a small syringe (optional with needle, maybe an unused insulin syringe) to inject the ink from the bottle into the converter or chamber.
The color is so difficult to describe. The other two reviewers below have it spot-on, yet they aren't even close at the same time. One said denim, one said purple-ish. Both are entirely right, both are just a little wrong. It's truly a unique color that can't really be compared to any other color. Awesome!

If I could give this pencil more than 5 stars, I definitely would. I have written reviews on other colors of this pencil. It is my absolute favorite, and I own one of each color offered here!
Kutsuwa Dr. Ion Mega Pencil Case - Black - KUTSUWA 168DRBK
  I bought this, and the..., June 25, 2013
I bought this, and the Super Mega Pencil Case (the slightly larger version) based on the reviews I read here. I immediately regretted my decision upon arrival, but I decided that I would give it a month or two to see if it got better. It didn't. I haven't had any problems with staining with any of my pens (even the white-gripped Dr. Grips and the Alpha-Gels). My main gripe with this case is how awkwardly it all fits together. When you fill it with a lot of items, it gets bulgy. Though it has a lot of spaces to put things, I feel like my pens, pencils, and accessories are extremely disorganized in this case. Personally, I'd rather carry multiple smaller cases. If you're considering buying these, think twice. You may be satisfied with it, as many other reviewers are. I personally would recommend any of the following cases instead:
1- Lihit Lab Teffa Pen Case - Book Style (Roomy, and much less cluttered than the Dr. Ion cases.)
2- Nomadic PE-06 Side Zipper Pencil Case (I originally used this as my "necessities" case, but it holds a lot more than you'd think!)
3- Nomadic PE-10 Tri-Fold Pencil Case (This is your basic tri-fold so it's not going to hold everything, only what you need.)

I left a review on the 8-piece set of these pens as well, if you need more review information. I just wanted to add a bit to this particular member of the set after a bit more use. This one smears. Also, if you erase over them, they peel off and fade! When I say that they "peel" off, its kind of like wiping off correction tape from a page. I used these on Maruman paper, on standard copy paper, and on a cheap sketchbook. All had the same result. I was very disappointed at the quality of this set. :(
