These pens are really nice to use, though they do feel a little cheap and don't have a whole lot of weight to them. The ink flows smoothly, doesn't bleed, dries fast and has yet to skip on me.
Pentel Stein Enhanced Silica Pencil Lead - 0.3 mm - HB - PENTEL C273-HB
  Personally, this lead..., March 28, 2012
Personally, this lead suits me perfectly. It has never broken on me except for when I've accidentally dropped the pencil and it landed at an awkward angle. I'm a little heavy handed when it comes to drawing but it's still held up strong for me as long as the lead isn't way too far out.

While it claims that it doesn't smudge, it does, but far, far less than any other lead I've ever used does. Normally I'm covered in graphite, but this lead reduces it by at least 90%, making my paper much cleaner when I draw.

You get 15 leads per tube which is 3 more than you'll get with other leads from Pentel.

Also, the case these come in is perfect. You twist the cap, not pop it open, making accidentally spilling and losing all of your lead much harder to do. As I wrote this, I popped open a case of the o.7mm leads to compare them to this lead, and they spilled everywhere.
Pilot AirBlanc Mechanical Pencil - 0.3 mm - Soft Blue - PILOT HA-20R3-SL

These are great pencils. They're comfortable to hold and they have a tiny bit of weight to them, which is really nice. The gel grip feels really good too.

The erasers don't last long at all, but unfortunately, Jetpens is sold out of them. If they're ever in stock again and you tend to erase a lot, definitely get a few refills.

The colors are very nice too. I love having multiple pencil colors to differentiate lead grades easily and these pencils are perfect.

And lots of people tend to think that .3mm lead breaks very easily, but I haven't encountered a problem with it.

I would highly recommend these pencils!
Uni E-Knock Eraser - Blue Body - UNI EH105P.8

The pen/tube itself is comfortable to hold, and despite its simplistic design, it's kind of pretty, too. Love matching it with a 0.3mm Pilot airblanc pencil.

The eraser is great. It can get into small areas and it erasers better than any other retractable eraser I've used. However, if you push too hard or use the eraser at too much of angle, the eraser can break off. It's not a huge problem, just something to keep in mind.

I personally love the eraser and already bought a second one and plenty of refills.
Kuretake Fudebiyori Pocket Color Brush Pen - Light Gray - KURETAKE CBK-55-091S

This brush pen is fantastic! It works just like a marker, and goes on a little opaque, allowing you to build up color a little. It's a nice, light color that you can easily darken by going over the same area twice, which is great for shading art.

It seemed to be picking up the black ink I used on the outlines a bit, but it wasn't very much at all and it didn't cause a ton of bleeding. I only wish there more colors to choose from, because I would totally want a full set.

I LOVE this pen. It was my first brush pen but it's gotten me hooked. I'm ordering more, in fact!

The tip is nice and flexible but easy to control, though I'm worried it'll give out quickly, especially if you push too hard. Either way, it's great for the price, the ink doesn't seem to smudge or bleed through and it gives some really great outlines when inking pictures. Even the fine tip makes filling in larger areas nice and fast while still being precise.
Zebra Regal Arrow Liquid Ink Roller Ball Pen - 0.7 mm - Pink - ZEBRA 44570

This pen writes very smoothly. Beautiful design, lovely, vibrant ink color, really smooth flowing ink with no skipping. The area of the pen that you grip feels very cheap, but it hardly detracts from how nice it is to write with this pen.
