I actually like this...
October 18, 2015
I actually like this pen quite a bit. I normally like to use the Papermate Flair for smaller sketches, but now I think I like this one more, as it's a little bolder and I can get some (very slight) line weight variation out of it. (But it's still a felt pen tip, so not too much variation.) The ink is a very dark and rich black, it glides on paper smoothly, and dries super fast - no smearing (and I've gotten smearing problems from other pens before.) It does feel a little rough when you keep going over the same area where you've put down ink, but it's not a big deal as I'm not typically doing that. It doesn't bleed through the paper I've used it on either, for either the Fabriano EcoQua notebooks (85gsm) or 24lb laser paper.

Great pen, I will definitely consider getting it again, after I try out all of my other felt tip pens from JetPens!

(As a side note - I'm not having any of the problems that the other reviewer had. No smearing, and no real problems when erasing over it - just very, very slight fading when using a Tombow Mono eraser, and that's after going over the same area a lot.)
I've had and very regularly...
October 6, 2015
I've had and very regularly used this pencil case for about 5 or 6 years now, and out of all the pencil cases I own (and have owned and given away), this is by far my favorite. It is pretty minimalist, but that's what I love about it. It's super thin, and it has a very thin amount of padding, which has been good enough for me since I don't really abuse it (though it has been thrown in a backpack countless times without any problems.) Mine holds about 6 pens on one side, and 6 or 7 pencils, a small eraser, and a pencil extender on the other side. It's great, because if you keep it around this amount, you can immediately see all of your pens and pencils in one layer laid out in front of you. And you can add quite a bit more, if you don't mind bulking it up and not being able to see everything at first glance. I love it much more than the other pencil cases where they just have one giant compartment, and stuff is harder to find and gets tossed around way more. And I like it more than the Lihit Lab Teffa bag which is way too big and bulky for my taste (though I can see how other people would love that one.) I highly recommend this pencil case, as long as this is the type of thing you're looking for: slim / low-profile, slightly protective padding, semi-organized and simple.

I absolutely love this...

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...

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...
July 7, 2010
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...

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....

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.
