Kutsuwa Stad WK'Zool Multi Wooden & Color Pencil Sharpener - KUTSUWA RS012BL
  Best pencil sharpener..., April 8, 2012
Best pencil sharpener I have ever used. From electronic to generic Staples pencil sharpeners, this pencil sharpener easily outclasses all the rest. Lead breakage is rare unless it's from the pencil's lead problem. The cut is very very clean. The orb/ball thing allows to you vary the sharpness of the lead and the highest level gives a very sharp point.

My only complaint is that even with the cover, lead shavings do leak and escape if you shake it. Not a big problem considering I usually empty it before going anywhere.
Copic Sketch Marker - Cool Gray 3 - COPIC C3S

It's a Copic. It does what it is supposed to do. It also happens to be my first Copic marker and not regretting the purchase. Off to buy a larger set.
Sura Kura Pencil Bag - Large – Pink on Black - SURA PBC900B
  It was on the close-out..., March 24, 2011
It was on the close-out section and I couldn't pass up a relatively cheap pencil case.
Much to my surprise, it was pretty small. To be more exact, I couldn't visualize the 7.5 in length in the description. It does fit my assorted 13 pens and markers. Looks nice and basic.
Copic Comic Drawing Pen with Waterproof Ink - 0.1 mm - Black - COPIC F01DP
  More like 4.5 stars. Great..., March 24, 2011
More like 4.5 stars.

Great pen for detailed works. Nice dark ink and flows beautifully.

It does however, smudge a little, but that was stated in the description (which I missed). When you run Copics or other art markers on it, it only darkens around the marked area and smudges if you drag it out. On bristol paper, it doesn't smudge however.
Kaimei Drawing Pen Ink - 60 ml Bottle - KAIMEI SE-0009
  Absolutely love this..., March 24, 2011
Absolutely love this ink! No smudging whatsoever with my Copics. My Speedball India ink smudges horribly with my current paper. Higgens drawing ink didn't fare any better.

As I was beginning to think it was my paper (some type of smooth paper, not exactly bristol, but not some cheap printer paper. It's 180g/ m paper), this ink does not smudge no matter how much I douse the page with ink.

My only complaint is the opening isn't so big, but there's a nifty holder next to it.

Perfect for aspiring manga artists!
Zebra Comic Pen Nib - G Model - Chrome - Pack of 10 - ZEBRA PG-6C-C-K
  Love this nib. It makes..., December 29, 2010
Love this nib. It makes the thinnest lines possible with just skimming the paper and can also make thick lines. Holds a lot of ink. Perfect for manga artists. I'm giving up my Speedball nibs for these.

On a side note: When I got these, I was stupidly eager and went ahead and prepared all of them for usage (getting off the wax). It never occurred to me that I'm never going to go through 10 nibs soon and that it can possible rust form storage. Just prepare the ones you are going to use.
Tachikawa Comic Pen Nib Holder - Model 40 - TACHIKAWA T-40
  Looks as great as it..., December 29, 2010
Looks as great as it functions. I bought most of the Zebra pen nibs with this holder (G, Tama, and School. All chrome versions) and none of them fall out while using. The cap secures nicely on both ends.
Kaimei Manga Pen Ink - 70 ml Bottle - White - KAIMEI BO-8104
  First thing I noticed..., December 29, 2010
First thing I noticed was the smell. Smells like milk, so I'd say its calcium based. With it being calcium based, calcium sinks to the bottom. So you have to shake it every time you want to use it. Shaking it makes bubbles.

I think a brush would work wonders (I've never tried it), but you can use a pen nib. It's just that the bubbles don't give you much ink so you have to go deeper into the bubbles which makes a mess on your pen holder and gets all over your nib. Cleaning this is just like cleaning glue, it's not hard but a hassle to get your stuff clean.

About the actual ink, it works to some degree. When I was using it on black India ink, it sort of mixed with it even after drying and it came out slightly grey. It wasn't as flat as I thought it'd be too.
Tachikawa Comic Nib Fountain Pen - School Model Nib - Extra Fine - Black Ink - TACHIKAWA NP-40ABK-EF
  It's really good if you..., December 10, 2010
It's really good if you use it often. More like you NEED to use it if you want to keep it alive. Mine broke from just leaving it alone for two weeks after being swamped with school work. The ink inside the cartridge and some on the nib itself dried up and now I get inconsistent ink flow. If you really want to learn how to use a pen nib, this is a good intro to your learning, but actual dip pens with nibs are much easier to care for.
