Pentel Graph Gear 1000 Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - PENTEL PG1015
  Before ordering this..., June 8, 2010
Before ordering this pencil I was worried about the complaints I read: wobbly tip, unbalanced, unwieldy dimensions. I have since put those worries to rest. This is an impressive pencil. The clip alone means that I have it on me most of the time, which is when I need it the most. The tip is not wobbly at all, the balance is fine as is it's length. Though my preferred pencil is a Rotring 600, this Pentel has been seeing the most use lately. If I had to give it a grade, it would be an A.
Lamy Al-Star Fountain Pen - Extra Fine Nib - Aluminum Silver Body - LAMY L25EF
  The best fountain pen..., April 7, 2008
The best fountain pen under $100. I think that's what Forbes said. Anyway, it's great! I'd recommend getting the converter though and finding a bottle of ink with a color unique to you. If you're gonna use a fountain pen, you might as well take advantage of the things that make it special. Though, by default it takes cartridges and require no more thought than a ball point pen for the most part. It's reliable, uses quality materials, and thankfully is available in an extra fine nib. I love mine.
Tombow Mono Zero Eraser Refill - 2.3 mm - Circle - TOMBOW ER-KUR

Buy in bulk when you have the chance! A+ quality and essential if you have a Mono Zero.
Tombow Mono Zero Eraser - 2.5 mm x 5 mm - Rectangle - Silver Body - TOMBOW EH-KUS04
  While the standard circle..., April 7, 2008
While the standard circle style Mono Zero easily found a use in my kit, this one is still struggling to find it's place. The flat thin shape of the eraser makes it difficult to make sense of what it's ideal function is.

It's too wide to be precise, unless you use the corners of the eraser, in which case it's hard to see what you're erasing. It can be used as an all around eraser intended for a less precise function taking advantage of it's wide coverage. In that case it's kind of a rare beast to be used for everyday use. Keeping a healthy stock of refills might prove difficult in the long run.

Again, like the other models of Mono Zeros, the eraser does not extend to the bottom of the barrel. It's about three inches long with a plastic lead extending the length which feeds into the advance mechanism. While it sucks to have an eraser shorter than expected, the quality is tops. Tombow definitely knows how to make things disappear. Plus, it looks way cool.

I primarily use a Tuff Stuff for small mistakes, but this Mono Zero very precise corrections possible. It is now an essential part of my kit. Make sure to get a handful of refills though. The erasers are not long, maybe three inches or so with a plastic lead for the advance mechanism. I'm very happy with the quality and it's unique size. Thumbs up!
