I absolutely love this...
Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this memo pad! It's perfect as a pocket-sized sketchbook. The paper is excellent quality. It's a nice white, and it's REALLY smooth, which I personally love. The smoothness is just about the same as Rhodia pads, and that's pretty hard to beat. The paper thickness/weight is probably about the same as as the Rhodia pads as well. There's a little bit of show-through with pens and pencils, but it's pretty decent. I don't think I'd use both sides of the sheet with some pens, but pencil is good. I also like that there's 80 sheets, that's a nice bonus. It seems pretty sturdy too, but I can't say for sure since I haven't had it that long and I'm gentle with my sketchbooks. Overall, it's very comparable to Rhodia, other than the paper being white and not ivory. No complaints here. I'm definitely buying more.

Great sharpener, it...
Verified Purchase
Great sharpener, it doesn't break pencil leads that my other sharpeners will. The pencil shaving it makes is also one long piece instead of little shreds. Also the sharpest point it makes is extremely pointy, which I love.

These Stad One-Push pencil...
These Stad One-Push pencil extenders/lengtheners/holders are awesome! I've been in search of the perfect ones for a couple years now ever since I started buying expensive pencils such as the Mitsubishi Hi-Uni and the California Republic Palomino pencils. I've tried about 4 or 5 different styles. These are by far my favorite! They are just the right weight, size, and texture - the whole body is really smooth aluminum (there's no rubber grip). The cap/button also has an eraser under it. The eraser diameter is the same as the Tombow One Twist Mini erasers, and you could in fact replace it with one.

They're so comfortable, I almost wish I could use them with my full sized pencils as well. They are super easy and quick to put the pencil in our out, which is a big plus since I sharpen pencils a lot. They grip the pencil really well and don't let the pencil move around once it sort of "locks" in (although sometimes you have to twist the pencil until the grip mechanism is all the way back like it is when there is no pencil in it.) I highly recommend these if you'd like to get a little more mileage out of your pencil stubs.

These are my favorite...
Verified Purchase
These are my favorite brand of colored leads for mechanical pencils (not that there's a whole lot to choose from!) I like them slightly better then the Uniball leads, although those are really high quality as well. These erase slightly better than the Uniball ones. The lead is really soft, so the only downside is you go through them really fast. But I prefer softer leads anyway so I'm used to it and it's not a big deal, they're well worth it!

I LOVE these brushes....
Verified Purchase
I LOVE these brushes. I've tried a few different brands of waterbrushes, and these are definitely my favorite. The water comes out just right when you squeeze it, unlike some which will squeeze out too little or too much. It's also really easy to refill. And the shape is great because it won't roll off the table. The brush/bristles itself are also the best around. My regular watercolor brushes are pretty much obsolete now because of these Pentel Aquash brushes. The large size is my favorite, but if you're going to be doing extremely detailed work you might want to go for medium or fine.

This pencil is great....
Verified Purchase
This pencil is great. I've been trying out different colored mechanical pencil leads to see which ones I like best, and this is definitely one of the best. It erases slightly better than the UniBall lead, but not a huge difference or anything. It also has a really good feel to it, it's not scratchy or anything like some leads are, but since it feels a little softer I think it also wears down a little bit quicker... As for the pencil itself, it is very comfortable and ergonomic, the grip is perfect. I just wish it had a bigger eraser and came in 0.5mm.

I just love these erasers!!...
Verified Purchase
I just love these erasers!! I recently discovered that they fit perfectly in my Papermate/Sanford Titanium mechanical pencils too, although they're a little too long (you can just use them in the mono twist eraser until they get worn down or you can just cut them shorter.) This is like a match made in heaven! Tombow Mono erasers are my favorite eraser, although the Boxy is pretty high up there too.
