Sailor Clear Candy Fountain Pen - Medium Fine Nib - Clear Black Body - SAILOR 11-0103-313
  I'm pretty much a newbie..., December 29, 2012
I'm pretty much a newbie to fountain pens, but I'm very happy with this pen. It writes with a very nice, fine, consistent line and the ink is very black. I was afraid the clear plastic would get scratched up and ruin the pen's looks after a while, but I've had it banging around in my pencilcase for several months and it still looks fine.
Uni-ball Signo Broad UM-153 Gel Ink Pen - White Ink - UNI UM153.1
  While drawing I like..., December 24, 2012
While drawing I like to use white gel pens to draw highlights over black ink or to correct tiny mistakes; but none of the white pens I've tried over the years has really been up to the job. This, however, is pretty much the best white gel pen I've ever used. The ink goes on thick and smooth and the pen doesn't get dried up and crusty like most of the other gel pens I've tried.
Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencil - 0.7 mm - Red Body - Red Lead - PILOT HCR-197-R
  I have three Pilot Color..., December 24, 2012
I have three Pilot Color Eno pencils: this, the violet, and the light blue. The violet is quite dark, great for writing, not so great for erasing; while the light blue feels a little too light at times. Of the three, I find the red to be the best for drawing -- dark enough to show up clearly against the paper, light enough to easily erased and inked over. Take note that the lead lays down more of a light red/pinkish color than the very vibrant bright red of the casing.
Pilot Color Eno Mechanical Pencil - 0.7 mm - Violet Body - Violet Lead - PILOT HCR-197-V
  Of the Pilot Color Eno..., December 24, 2012
Of the Pilot Color Eno pencils, I have this, the red, and the light blue. Out of those three, this is the one I've found most suitable for writing, as it's a nice dark color that's easy to read. Of course, that also makes it the hardest to erase out of those three. I have to press quite hard to erase, and even then traces of the erased bits are still quite clearly visible. So maybe better not use this for anything which you want to erase very cleanly. I use it for marking up documents, where before I would use colored pens.
