This notebook is definitely a conversation starter, and the paper is so unique.
I did some testing of my own on one of the pages in the back of the book, just
to see what writing tools were best to use on the paper. What I found was gel
ink pens less than 0.5 mm worked the best, the smaller the nib the better.
Ballpoint pens came in second and roller ball pens and pencils were a no go. The
paper isn't as absorbent as regular bond, so the ink kind of floats on the
surface until it dries. I'm left handed and saw that the roller ball pens
smeared, a lot. Pencil also didn't make the cut because I did an eraser test
with a polymer eraser and rubber eraser and saw that the lead did not erase well
at all. I did a few pencil sketches on my test pages and didn't have an issue
with using pencil on the paper, however, the fact that erasing doesn't work
defeats the point of using a pencil.
This pen is definitely one of Pentel's smoothest writing ballpoints. The ink
doesn't smear or skip and writes a solid black line. The only con is the pen
body. The green part of the body is a type of soft plastic, that has some give
but isn't as soft as most pen grips, so it's not very comfortable. Rather than
have the pen go to waste, I reused the ink cartridge in another retractable pen
body. I probably won't buy this pen again, but will definitely purchase the pen
When I first started using the pen I noticed a rattling noise, which I think is
caused from the clicking mechanism on top of the pen. The noise doesn't really
bug me, what I don't like about the pen is how the ink skips. I'm not sure if
it's the angle that I'm holding the pen causing the ink to skip, but I noticed a
significant difference from the regular Uni Jetstream 0.5 pen. I wanted to try
this pen out because of the slim body but I'm finding out that the regular
Jetstream writes better.
This bag is the perfect size. I keep it in my purse and use it to carry work
home and as a book bag. I don't think I'd use it to carry groceries, because the
print is really pretty and I wouldn't want to mess it up. When expanded it fits
quite a bit: my folio (9.5"x13"x1.5"), a few magazines, a couple of books, a few
notebooks, and sometimes my pen case. The fabric isn't as thin as some of my
other nylon shopper bags, and has held up nicely to daily use. I definitely
recommend this bag and will be buying some of the other colors.
The erasable ink piqued my curiosity so I thought I would try this pen out. I
wasn't really impressed when I started using it, although the ink is erasable
with the frixion tip on the opposite end, the ink itself is more pink in color.
The ink also skips, which I thought was weird because usually gel ink pens write
nice solid lines. The pen body isn't as comfortable as it looks, the body is
actually very stiff and the rubber grip isn't very comfortable on the fingers.
Its a nice looking pen and if you're looking for ink that erases then I would
recommend buying, otherwise I don't think I'll buy this pen again.
I really like this red pen. The ink rolls out smooth just like the name
advertises, and the ink does not skip. I also really like the ink color, it's a
nice medium red shade. The rubber grip also has a nice subtle curve to
accommodate fingers. I will definitely buy this pen again and in other shades.
As mentioned in other reviews the rattling can be a bit distracting. I don't
dislike this pen, but it's not my favorite. I like the fact that it has a wooden
body which is soft to touch and light in your hand, however the wood is prone to
dents, marks, and other types of blemishes. I haven't experienced any issues
with ink flow, or ink beading at the tip but I don't use this pen extensively. I
purchased it as a companion to my A6 pocket notebooks which I use for writing
lists or jotting down short notes.
Felt = fur-ball magnet. This bag is so cute in person, just the right size for
a small bag, with a nice amount of pockets, and pretty details in the stitching
and buttons. BUT it attracts so much animal fur, I have a gray tabby cat and
his fur shows up so prominently on my bag, so I'm constantly picking off his
hair. Otherwise it's a cute small bag and I've gotten many compliments. I
bought this color because I figured the cream would go with any outfit (typical
girl) but after seeing how the bag attracts my cat's fur I should have gotten a
I love these crayons, I bought a set for my nieces ages 2 and 5. They fit
really well in small hands and aren't toxic at all. Depending on what side
you're using they can draw a line or color in a large area. The have an oil
pastel like quality to them, you can blend the colors, overlap them to create
new colors, and smear them - but the color stays on the paper and not hands!
These are cute little paper flags, but the scent isn't as strong as I would have
liked it to be. The tacky side holds it's grip on pages and doesn't leave a
sticky residue. If I wanted to notate something on the flag I noticed that
pencil and ballpoint pen worked best, the paper is too slick for roller ball
pens and the ink doesn't get absorbed by the paper. I bought the yuzu (orange)
along with the grapefruit (light green), lavender (purple), and rose (red/pink).
I use them mostly to flag recipes in cook books and magazines.
