Uni-ball Signo Bit UM-201 Gel Ink Pen - 0.18 mm - Black - UNI UM-201-18.24
  Yes, it's a specialized..., August 29, 2011
Yes, it's a specialized pen, and I don't think it would be comfortable for extensive writing sessions. (I'd suggest the Hi-Tec-C .25mm for that.) But I needed something this fine for annotations and small details in my sketchbooks. This pen has performed beautifully for three years now, on a variety of papers. A big plus for me is that the ink is absolutely waterproof, unlike the Hi-Tec-C's. So I can go over my drawings with watercolors without any fear of the color running.

I have been using this pen for about three weeks now, and I am really enjoying it. The ink flow is wonderful, and the slight flexibility of the nib brings subtle expressiveness on the lines. I have used it on a variety of papers, and it's been particularly nice on smooth Bristol and hot press watercolor. I draw with a light hand and rarely notice any scratchiness.

The nib on this pen is somewhat flexible, which allows you to vary the width of the line depending on the amount of pressure you use. I've been using it to sketch for the past few days, and I'm impressed with the inkflow (quite fluid) and the smooth feel on paper. It is worth noting that it does better on "hard" papers like Bristol board and layout/marker bond. I also tried it on softer finish papers, like sketch and drawing pads, and it felt a bit dry and scratchy. Definitely with the price.

This eraser is just brilliant. It reaches into tiny places with near surgical precision, and does a great job removing pencil marks. I can't recommend it highly enough.
Pilot Envelope Address Writing Gel Ink Pen - Broad - PILOT MNA-12MB
  It writes beautifully,..., July 21, 2011
It writes beautifully, smooth as butter. The ink is a deep rich black - superior to any other gel ink pen I've ever tried. It looks like India ink, for anyone who has done pen and ink work. And the ink is absolutely waterproof. The pen writes rather wet, but it dries quickly. It's a terrific bargain.
Pentel Hi-Polymer Ain Eraser - Soft - PENTEL ZETS07E
  This is an easy eraser..., June 21, 2011
This is an easy eraser to use. As described, there are very few shavings, even after erasing large areas. My complaint is that it doesn't fully erase pencil that is moderately or heavily drawn. However, this could be a characteristic of very soft erasers, and why Pentel offers this in different hardness.
Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Ink Pen - White Ink - UNI UM153.1

Nice opaque white, draws very smoothly, and dries well. (Like any white pen, you have to write more slowly than you do with colored gel pens, and give the ink time to dry.) I'm very satisfied.
Nomadic VS-01 Virgo-Attrezzo Standing Pen Case - Light Green - NOMADIC EVS 01 L. GREEN
  If it's possible to fall..., June 21, 2011
If it's possible to fall in love with a pencil case, this one would be my eternal sweetheart. It holds a ton of pens in the main section. The inner pockets are different sizes and ultra-convenient. And iit stands up very solidly. A great product.
Rhodia DotPad Notepad - Black - 5.75" X 8.25" - 80 Sheets - 5 mm Dot Grid - RHODIA 16559
  If I could rate it six..., May 31, 2011
If I could rate it six stars I would. I was a bit concerned about the visibility of the dot grid, brcause I find their regular graph paper too obtrusive for writing text. (I've only used it for diagrams though..) But the dot grid is perfect - neither too light nor too dark. And the paper is, of course, simply wonderful.
Uni Boxy Eraser - Black - UNI EP-60BX

A wonderful eraser! It erases more cleanly than any others I have tried, and it leaves no residue, so you can go over the area with ink or pencil easily. And cheap! What more could you want?
