These scissors have an nice weight and cut very well. The adjustable bands take some getting used to but once you get your finger positioning down, the scissors feel very good in the hand.
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - Brown Ink - PENTEL BG202-E1

Okay, I'm removing a star from my last review. Slicci's overall are wonderful pens, but for some reason I have had trouble with the brown-ink pens.

I have had not trouble with the black or blue black pens. However, all of my brown-ink Slicci pens (3 so far) keep dying on me with at least 3/4ths of the ink left. For a $3 pen this is very disappointing. I tried all sorts of methods to revive the pen, but nothing worked.
Uni-ball Signo UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.28 mm - Black - UNI UM15128.24

I have used .25 Hi-Tec-C's and .25 Pentel Slicci's. They're both wonderful gel pens, but I think the Signo DX UM-151 is superior to both.

Although the Signo is not as slick as the Slicci, it has a thinner more consistent line. The pen feels like a Hi-Tec-C but the tip of the pen does not stick or catch on the surface paper like the Hi-Tec-C. The weight of the pen is wonderful and does not feel too thin like the Slicci's and Hi-Tec-C's sometimes do.
Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - Midnight Blue Ink - PENTEL BG202-CA

The "Blue Black" label is misleading. The pen I received says "Midnight Blue" on the cap which is a closer description in my opinion since the ink is lighter than what "Blue Black" (which to me means a really really dark blue that looks black.)

Here's an a good example I found of what the ink looks like (via Pen Addict):

I am an art student and I was originally a Hi-Tec C user, but decided to buy this Brown Slicci on a whim.

This pen RARELY skips, in fact, I only remember my Blue Black Slicci skipping once. The pen fits comfortably in the hand and is great for sketching. The flow is so smooth that I can use it for quick gesture drawings and receive a clear solid line. I can also vary my line weight very easily while sketching with this pen.
Tombow Mono Eraser - Large - TOMBOW PE-07A

I am currently an art student and this is the best eraser that I have ever used. The difference between this eraser and my last eraser (Staedtler Mars Plastic) is astounding. This eraser erases with even the lightest touch. It gives me finer control. The material itself also has a very smooth/soft touch that I find pleasing to hold.

Essentially, it's effective and produces great results!
