I just read the reviews out of curiosity because this stapler did not have 5
stars. Be clear: Patrick is absolutely right. It is an insanely good stapler;
buy it and then give away your others. I bought the pink and blue Power
staplers when JetPens carried all three colors, and they are simply outstanding.
In the US back in the 1970s and 80s, the #10 staples were used in efficient
small Swinglines, and I loved using my Dad's little stapler. I much prefer the
small #10 staples. As an adult, it took years for me to find a quality stapler
that uses the #10s. First JetPens got the Racchikisu and I thought that was
wonderful and then they got the Power Racchikisu. Now (in my job as a
professor) I can staple much longer journal articles and drafts of papers. I
came back to JetPens today for another, and will buy the yellow green, because I
needed to use a less amazing stapler this morning and was frustrated. I need to
have another Power Racchikisu for a different location. These Power Racchikisu
staplers never fail or jam, they are compact, function smoothly, staple large
numbers of pages, and I never want to have to use a lesser stapler again. Get
one. Get more than one.
This is a beautiful light pink, fine-tipped marker. It does not dry out even
when I forget to put the cap on. I prefer to underline in textbooks and write
in the margins rather than highlight, and this light carmine pink is perfect.
It helps me to notice certain sections of text without it being distracting.
Staedtler Triplus Fineliners are sturdy, beautiful marker pens; they do not
bleed through paper and they come in wonderful colors--love them.
This notebook is AMAZING but hard to find, so when I saw that JetPens started
selling other notebooks from Life I requested that they find the Vermilion and
they did! It is small enough to fit in a purse or small pocket of a book bag,
the stitched seam along the spine (rather than a squared book binding) makes it
open flat and easy to write in, and the feel of the paper is luxurious. I use
tiny-tipped pens, and the paper has been wonderful for every pen I have
tried--including the Pilot Prera fine and Lamy extra fine fountain pens, the
Pilot Hi-Tec-C .25 and the Uni-Ball Signo Bit .18 gel pens, and the Uni
Jetstream .38 ballpoint pen. If you like soft and creamy paper in a small but
not too small size--the Vermilion is an excellent buy. It is difficult to
convey how amazing this paper is to write on. Great job again, JetPens!
An update from three weeks later: the more I use it the more I like it. It is
writing smoother on regular paper, leaves no globs, and is a still a nice small
pen in my hand. I am on the JetPens site specifically to order another one in
case I leave this one somewhere!
Delightfully fun little memo pad--Great for lists because you can tear off just
what you need/are done with. Smooth paper as well. The trick is to remember to
work from the bottom of each page up, so you can tear off what you've already
done but save the rest of the page in the notebook. I would appreciate having a
choice of 30sheets or so per pad rather than only 80sheets, but I'm happy with
it as is. Also has a pocket in the cover to tuck pages/things in.
A smooth writing experience--delightful to write with. It makes a thin line,
does not glop at all, does not cut out. Writes very well on high quality paper
like the Kokuyo Campus Line options or the Kokuyo Campus MIO, AND also writes
well on regular American papers. A wonderful writing experience along the lines
of the Uni-ball Jetstream series. I'd love to see the Pilot Acroball come out
with a colored line such as the Jetstream.
This pen is a nice petite body style to fit in my purse or pen case, but it has
a tendency to be scratchy. It writes much more smoothly on my Kokuyo Campus
Todai and Campus MIO papers than on regular American paper. So for those of you
who write primarily on beautiful smooth papers this pen will work just fine--for
those who don't you might have trouble with it cutting out. Another new pen I
got this week was the Pilot Acroball Smooth Writing Ballpoint .5mm. It has the
styling of a regular ballpoint pen (not like the metal of the Pieni) and the .5
tip is noticeably bigger--but it writes beautifully on any paper and is still
quite nice for those who like thin lines.
These new Style Fit Slim Gel Ink pens are divine! I received the first .28mm
today and immediately ordered the rest. They are as perfectly smooth as the
Uniball Signo DX UM-151 .28s, yet they are small to carry and use as the Pentel
Slicci. Unlike the Slicci, these are a clicker pen instead of capped pen.
Delightful fun--I can't wait to use them to write in my Kokuyo Campus High Grade
