I always bust the leads on mechanical pencils because they're so thin and I tend to press hard. This lead holder has a nice thick lead, so it doesn't break even under the sort of pressure I use. Love the colour and smooth finish as well. The sharpener cap is a clever extra.

These are great little notebooks for keeping in a purse. They don't tear or get all dog-eared and grubby, even after spending a week in my bag with three pens, a multi-tool, a set of gaming dice, a comb, two pots of lipgloss, my wallet, and a packet of Fisherman's Friend cough drops. Love the dot grid too. Goes well with my new Fisher Space Pen.

Ooh… it's so *tiny*. And *shiny*. And it writes so very well on *everything*, including napkins, my arm (didn't have a piece of paper handy), and my new Field Notes Expedition Notebook. I love fountain pens for letters and journals, but this is my new favourite purse pen.

The perfect shade of emerald green. Closely matches the swatch on the website, and flows evenly (used in Pilot Metropolitan pen). Not much else to add. If you like green ink, get this.

I haven't had a fountain pen since the nib on my old one (a high school graduation gift from 1989 (!)) bent when a friend borrowed it and pressed too hard. I figured this would be a good re-entry level pen, going by the reviews. Wow - I may never use a ballpoint pen again. This requires hardly any pressure to write with and glides across even cheap looseleaf paper (although it does bleed through a bit, but this is the paper's fault, not the pen's). I'm using the cartridge it came with, but I also bought a converter and a bottle of Herbin's Lierre Sauvage ink to try later.

The ink comes in a lovely frosted bottle and smells very noticeably of violets. The scent actually lingers on the paper, which is surprising and very, very romantic. The only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5 is that it's not quite as dark as I was hoping.

Just got this in the post today and gave it to my son. He's in kindergarten and has been having some trouble maintaining the correct grip on his pencil. He loves this pencil. I might have to get another one for him to keep at home, because he wants to take this one to school and show his teacher how well he can hold it.

I've never used a brush pen before, and I don't know how I ever managed without one.
