Iwako Box Set - American Food Box Novelty Eraser - Small Yellow Box - Assorted 4 Piece Set - IWAKO ER-981066 Y
  You can get similar sets..., February 12, 2014
You can get similar sets of these erasers in the US from Target for under $2. I got a biscuit, ice cream cone, cupcake, birthday cake, donut and popsicle stick for less than $1.50 (with tax). The erasers flake a bit when handling. I got them purely for their looks, so I don't plan on using them as erasers.
Zebra F-402 Stainless Steel Retractable Ballpoint Pen - 0.7 mm - Black - ZEBRA 29211

I have to say, I was not impressed with this pen. I could have picked up the 301 (same 0.7 size) in my local Office Max, but I wanted a retractable pen. Unfortunately this pen felt bulky and awkward in my hand and the ink was scratchy, IMHO. I ended up giving the pen away to a coworker who said he liked it. For the price, this pen was too expensive for how little it performed.
Kutsuwa Stad T'Gaal Pencil Sharpener - Orange - KUTSUWA RS017OR
  I love the ability to..., December 29, 2013
I love the ability to chose the type of sharpening this gadget performs on any standard size pencil you try. I have had no problems with it's ability to sharpen, so far.

However, after using this sharpener only a handful of times, it no longer closes when you turn the dial to close. To close it you have to open up the back of the shavings and tug at the small white arm that releases the white trap door. Also, because the door doesn't close on it's own (and I didn't realize that for a week) the shavings spill out a bit. Good thing I had this tucked in my paperclip and eraser pouch! Even so, this guy got pencil fuzz/dirt all over him. I typically keep my things very neat, organized and above all else CLEAN, so this was a shock to find when I went to use it.
Uni-ball Signo RT1 UMN-155C Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Black Ink - Aqua Body - UNI UMN155C38.32

I love the way this pen writes. The ink is smooth and I haven't have a problem with it smearing. I bought this and the light blue pen at the same time from JetPens and both quickly became favs.

However, the barrel of both pens appear stained after normal wear and storage. I (like you if you are reading this) am a pen/stationary aficionado. I always cap/unclick my pens/pencils when storing and periodically clean my storage pouches (a bit like in the movie Amelie). So the discoloration would not have occurred from a messy pen case or someone else using it with dirty fingers.
Uni-ball Signo RT1 UMN-155 Gel Ink Pen - 0.38 mm - Light Blue - UNI UMN15538.8
  I love the way this pen..., December 29, 2013
I love the way this pen writes. It has been one of my fav pens since I bought it here on JetPens. Personally, I also love the 'knock' style (the way the pen clicks) too. However, the barrel of this pen is getting discolored. I never leave pens or pencils in my pocketbook uncapped or open, so I do not see how this is occurring. I can only assume that typical storage is the problem. I love the color of this pen (bright and cheery) but may have to buy a dark colored barrel to avoid the discoloration.
Uni Color Pencil Lead - 0.5 mm - Mint Blue - UNI U05205C.32
  Overall- pretty excellent...., April 5, 2013
Overall- pretty excellent. When this is in stock here on JetPens, I usually get a couple packs because it is that good. Creamy and beautiful light shade of blue.

PROS
Light blue is non-repro. I have used this for sketches and my lines do not show up in a black and white copier. I supposed one could use a color copier and this might show up, but I have not tried it.

CONS
I do have *some* breakage when I use this lead in my Pentel GraphGear 1000. However, when I use it in my Uni Kuru Toga automatic pencil I have not noticed breakage. I wish they offered it in a 0.7, they don't so I have to go with Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencil Lead - 0.7 mm - Soft Blue for heavier lines.
Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen - Hard - Blue Body - TOMBOW GCD-111
  This is my fav brush..., April 1, 2013
This is my fav brush pen. I have tried more expensive brush pens, but this one has everything I like! It is compact, glides across the page effortlessly and is responsive to the pressure I apply to it. It does fine and thicker lines very nicely for me (I may have a heavy hand though). I would highly recommend it. I have already bought several, and have even given them away as gifts!

Does anyone know how an iPad fits in here? I know it dimensionally is 1 cm too small, but is it workable? Anyone brave enough to find out?

Does anyone know if this ink is NON-Repro or NON-COPY?
Nomadic PE-09 Flap Type Pencil Case - Red - NOMADIC EPE 09 RED
  I bought this in green...., August 15, 2011
I bought this in green. I must say- I still cannot believe how much it holds- A TON! I thought I needed a larger pen case to cram all of my pens, pencils, lead holders, erasers and such throughout the day. I was wrong. This almost holds too much to stuff into my work bag. I did not try putting pencils in the bag as I did not want to mark the fabric and/or my other writing instruments. I do like this bag for an all purpose stuff everything in it now and sort it out later bag.... I am just too overwhelmed by all it carries and have trouble remembering all that I have in it. (That's probably just me)
