Absolute favorite pen. I am originally a huge fan of the Uni Jetstream Ballpoint
in .38mm, and when Jetpens started selling the three way multipen, I was
ecstatic. Super convenient as a multipen, it holds three colors that are
universally used. I generally though use the black ink the most and secondly the
red, so I find myself always buying refills of those two colors. I use this pen
everyday for writing in my journal and taking notes as I am currently a student.
This pen is great because it provides versatility with its different colors, is
durable, well balanced, easy to use, and produces a wonderfully smooth and fine
line. I also bought this pen in the clear body.
I highly recommend this pen to those who prefer fine lines, are always in a
hurry, or simply love the Uni Jetstream line. Students, doctors, nurses--this
pen is a must.
This is my absolute favorite note-taking pen. Smooth, comfortable and cute, this
pen has not failed me yet--excluding the one time I used up all the ink. When it
comes to ballpoint pens, I am very picky. It has to write flawlessly with no
clumping, and no sticking. And this is one of the only pens that does just that.
This is definitely the smoothest ballpoint pen you will ever find in its size. I
originally started out with a 0.5mm, but once this bad boy 0.38mm came out, I
can't stop myself. Right now, I currently own 5--two in my pencil bag, three in
my pen cup at home.
Tips for ballpoint pens: If your ball point pen stops working, try scribbling on
the bottom of your shoe. Sometimes the ball in the tip gets stuck with dry or
clumpy ink and the paper itself is not enough to get it started again. Trying a
different medium, like the rubber sole of a shoe, might have enough friction to
get you back on your happy pen way.
The Sonic Nobirura Extendable Ruler is a must for any math, science or OCD
student out there! With its retractable feature, this ruler can be easily stored
in a regular pencil bag, then extended for its full potential when needed. At
first, I was skeptical of the section that slides out. I thought maybe it would
break off easily, come loose or get stuck. To my great and happy surprise, the
extendable section slides out of position smoothly and clicks into place to line
up for the full 30 centimeters. With the clear body, it is easy to line up with
ruler with anything and will surely fulfill any OCD tendencies.
I do caution you that sometimes the second half (extendable half) will bend side
to side under pressure, so your lines may sometimes be crooked. To make sure it
does not move, hold down both sides of the ruler with one hand--your thumb on
the extended portion, your middle three fingers on the clear section, and your
pinky and palm on the table or solid surface.
If you have tried the original Pilot Frixion Gel Ink pens, then you already know
how well this pen works. With erasable ink, colored sketches, notes,
corrections, or doodles are endlessly fun and easy! Plus, with this new, slim
body, these pens can be taken anywhere without taking up too much space. The
retractable mechanism really expedites the process of changing colors, say when
I am taking class notes, and gives easier access. With the slim tip, writing
between the lines or along margins is no unbearable obstacle anymore!
To make sure that when erasing there are no random smudges and that the ink
"disappears" effectively, be sure to check the rubber eraser for stray ink marks
Like the original pens, I still wish the ink were slightly darker, but its
understandable that it isn't given that it is supposed to be erasable.
Here's a cool tip: There is a small hole in the clear lever that when you push
down retracts the tip. Use that hole by stringing it with string and hang it up
or tie them to a notebook so that you always have a pen readily accessible.
This is a fantastic pencil for anyone on the go. It is durable, smooth, compact,
and comfortable. The entire body is made up of plastic rubber, so the grip is
always comfortable. As always, do not use the end eraser, but instead have a
separate, hand-held eraser because the end eraser is too small to last. I do
recommend that you clean it every so often because it does get easily dirty
since it is primarily rubber.
This was one of the first pencils I bought, and I still use it today!
This set of vibrant highlighters have gotten me through hundreds of pages of
textbooks boring enough to make a rock snore. Their colors are highly
attractive, the packaging could not have been designed better, and the product
is double the use with double ended sides of different sizes.
The only concern I faced with this product was the ink flow. Many times,
especially with the skinnier twin tip, large amounts of ink would flow straight
to the tip and create a large blot on my paper. I believe this could be
accounted through the angle of which you hold your highlighter.
Nonetheless, I highly recommend this set for all you busy body studiers ;)
I love this pencil! In fact I love it so much I have about 5 different ones :)
They're great for taking detailed notes in smaller spaces, especially with the
0.5 mm lead versions. Finding the right lead for this pencil was a little tricky
at first though. I originally favored the 2B leads because they left a dark and
definite mark, but with these pencils, the 2B lead was too soft and tended to
shave excessively. So I switched to the 2HB leads, and problem solved!
I highly recommend this pencil for those who write with soft-medium pressure and
prefer to have a sharp edge on the lead.
For those with a heavier hand but still want the rotating feature, look towards
the 0.7mm Kuru Toga.
