Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Blue Black - PILOT LHM-15C4-BB
  I have been an avid user..., August 7, 2013
I have been an avid user of the Hi-Tec-C pens for many years, and have had few complaints - they come with excellent ink color density, and the point is significantly better than other 0.4mm pens on the market. However, being equipped with large hands, the typical Hi-Tec-C always had me fumbling a bit to secure a proper grip before starting to write or sketch. I purchased the Maica after reading a review which indicated the pen was slightly larger in diameter, and a little longer than the normal Hi-Tec-C. The reviewer was spot on, and the Maica has quickly become my favorite writing instrument! I write, sketch, and make engineering design notations in a journal, every day of the week, and this pen is well suited for all the tasks.
Stabilo Bl@ck Roller Ball Pen - 0.3 mm - Blue Ink

I was fairly disappointed in this pen. The point size is more like a 1mm than a 0.3mm, and the ink bleeds through even the best of papers. The only plus is that it is comfortable to hold.
Tombow Zoom 505 Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black - TOMBOW SH-2000CZA11
  This is one fantastic..., June 29, 2012
This is one fantastic pencil! I have used Pentel Kerry's for over 10 years, and after damaging my last Kerry I decided to try the Tombow Zoom 505. I have now been using the Zoom for over a year for note taking and technical sketching, and have found it to be extremely well balanced, and a joy to hold (because of the "perfect" rubberized texture on the grip area). The lead feeds precisely, and the chuck holds on to the lead until that last bit is gone. The cap posts smoothly with a quiet click, and the lead advance provides a controlled amount to the tip every time. The pencil finish is superb, and does not show any wear or scratching, even after a year of long days in the field with some not-so-loving treatment.

While the Zoom was about double the price of the Kerry, I have found it to be well worth the extra cost. Actually the pencil is a real bargain, considering the exceptional workmanship and materials used.

If you write or sketch for long periods on a daily basis, this is the pencil you you will want to buy!
Pentel Tradio EnerGel Combo Gel Ink Pen - Nature Matte Body - 0.7 mm - Gray Body - Black Ink - PENTEL TRL92N-A
  The Tradio Energel is..., April 3, 2012
The Tradio Energel is simply a fantastic pen! Great balance and grip area, and with a 0.5mm refill installed in place of the standard 0.7mm refill, it puts down a perfect line width of extremely smooth, fast drying ink. Just great!
Pentel EnerGel Euro Needle-Point Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Blue - PENTEL BLN25-C
  Fantastic pen! I have..., December 5, 2011
Fantastic pen! I have used the Pilot Hi-Tec for many years, but thought that I would give the Pentel Energel Euro a try. The ink is wonderfully smooth, dries quickly and is a deep rich color of blue. If you are accustom to using a 0.5mm (Hi-Tec), you may want to try one of the finer points, as the Pentel 0.5mm seems a tad broader. The pen size and weight, in conjunction with the grip is much more to my liking in comparison to the Hi-Tec. Once again, JetPens has provided another great writing instrument, which can't be found anywhere else here in the U.S.
Pentel Hi-Polymer Ain Pencil Lead - 0.5 mm - 3B - PENTEL C255-3B

Flat out - this is the best 0.5mm lead I have ever used! I have tried them all; the Ain is exceptionallyl smooth, dark and extremely strong. Don't mess with the rest - you won't go wrong with this lead!
Seed Slendy + Super Slim Knock Eraser I - Black Body - SEED EH-S-K
  This is truly the best..., September 9, 2011
This is truly the best eraser I have used! The flat configuration of the eraser itself provides total, precise control and the eraser carrier is very thin making it convenient to carry in your pocket. Because of the precise control capability, I find that I use less of the eraser and the refills seem to last for a good deal of time. Well worth the cost!
Rotring 800 Drafting Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black Body - SANFORD 1904447
  This is the ultimate..., July 12, 2011
This is the ultimate 0.5mm pencil! I have owned just about all the others, and while many have been good, none have approached the "great" which this pencil represents. The advance/retract mechanism is smooth as silk, and the balance and weight of the 800 is absolutely perfect. Yes, I understand that the price is a bit above some other contenders, but no other pencil comes close in comparision.
Uni Pure Malt Wood Grip 2 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Navy Body - Limited Edition - UNI MSXE3100507.9
  OK! I am totally impressed..., May 9, 2011
OK! I am totally impressed with the Pure Malt Multi, but if you want an unbelievably beautiful one, try this limited edition navy.
The Uni-ball Pure Malt pen is both, a very unique multi-pen as well as an extremely functional tool. I was impressed with the exceptional design characteristics, as well as the flawless construction of the pen. Fit, finish and performance are fantastic. The blending of the Suntory cask wood into the pen construction makes each of these instruments totally unique. A very reasonable price for such a wonderful pen!..
