Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen - Extra Fine Nib - Brass Wave Body - KAWECO 10000728
  I love the brass versions..., July 1, 2014
I love the brass versions of the Liliput. They have some weight to them, which makes them feel more comfortable than the aluminum variety of the Liliput (I liked those so much that I purchased two of them in the raw aluminum, EF). Clean the nib unit prior to use. I used J.B.s Perfect Flush and a Q-tip, because I was so impatient. I also used a syringe bulb...the kind that come with newborn babies, to flush the nib unit with water. I let it air dry and then installed my ink cartridge. I have Montblanc Leonardo DaVinci Chalk Red in this pen and I have to say that the combination is perfect. These pens are uncoated brass, so they take on a patina with use. I think it makes them more original.
Uni-ball Signo UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Mandarin Orange - UNI UM15105.38
  Love these Uni Ball Signos...., December 5, 2013
Love these Uni Ball Signos. They are chemically resistant and work well in challenging (earth) environments.
Ohto Multi-Smart 4 3 Color 0.7 mm Ballpoint Multi Pen + 0.5 mm Pencil - Orange Body - OHTO MF-15ST4-OR
  Just received this pen..., December 5, 2013
Just received this pen and I really like it. I am mostly not a fan of ballpoints but, I do like the needlepoints from Ohto. They are great for tiny handwriting. I am always striking through mistakes in my laboratory notebook and documents that are archived and the needlepoints allow me to write very small and insert these comments in a limited space. Gel rollers are my choice, especially the Uni Ball Signos, which are chemically resistant but, I find this pen to be a plus because of the 0.5 pencil for processes where I must repeat steps. The compact size is great for pockets. I am quite happy with this pen.
Seed Super Gold High Class Rubber Eraser - SEED ER-MO 1
  This eraser is GREAT,..., August 8, 2013
This eraser is GREAT, provided you use it with certain paper types. I notice that using an excellent eraser like the Pilot Foam or the Pentel Ain (which someone sent me as an extra gift with an order...I wish I could recall who, so I could order from them more often) they do not work well on Rite-In-The-Rain or the Field Notes Expedition paper but, this eraser works wonders. It is also a GREAT way to clean suede shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is one of those things where you have to have the right tool for the right job. For multipurpose paper, I would use the Pilot Foam. For glossier-type, all-weather paper, try the Seed. It is made from natural rubber, so it's not hell on the planet, as well.
J. Herbin 1670 Anniversary Fountain Pen Ink - 50 ml Bottle - Rouge Hematite - J. HERBIN H150-26
  I love this ink! The..., July 9, 2013
I love this ink! The shading is incredible. It initially looks bright red but, when it dries, it has a golden color as an overtone. I currently have it inked in a TWSBI VAC700, 1.1 and a TWSBI Diamond 530, EF. It looks great with both sizes of points. I wonder how it would work with the Monteverde One Touch Engage but, mine is filled with another color presently.
Pilot Iroshizuku Ink - 50 ml - Ina-ho Rice Ear (Ochre) - PILOT INK-50-IH
  I just filled up my TWSBI..., June 12, 2013
I just filled up my TWSBI mini with a 1.1mm stub nib using this ink. It has subtle shading and is a golden-green shade, rather less red than the packaging led me to believe. The quality of the ink is consistent with the other shades of Iroshizuku ink that I have. I would recommend it for its uniqueness and quality.
E+M Artists 2062 Nib Holder + Nib - Mahogany - E+M 2062-3

I love this holder. The bevels on the mahogany make detailed writing easy. It has a nice, warm look and feel. Perfect for the holidays!
E+M Standard Pen Nib - Pack of 6 - E+M 2063
  I have been using these..., December 13, 2012
I have been using these nibs with the E+M holder in mahogany. I love the shape and feel of the holder and these nibs hold a fair amount of ink and they fit for very fine writing. The nibs are fairly bendy, though but, at the price I am not bothered at all. I like the flex and so far I have only used one.
Kaweco AL Sport Touch Ballpoint Pen + Stylus - 1.0 mm - Silver Body - Blue Ink - KAWECO 10000478
  I love this pen. I have..., August 25, 2012
I love this pen. I have an iPad and am a chemist. I primarily use this pen when I have nitrile gloves on and need to enter data onto my spreadsheet. It is ideal for this use and I suggest the Sharbo X gel pen refill instead of a ballpen refill. It just writes much better and they make a blue-black refill for those of us who don't like to write in black pen but find most blue ink colors to be too bright of a shade. I thought the clip would bother me because I normally do not use them but, it has not got in my way and I can clip it to my lab coat.
Kaweco Sport Leather 1 Pen Pouch with Flap - KAWECO 10000266
  I purchased this pen..., August 25, 2012
I purchased this pen case for my iPad Kaweco AL Sport ballpoint pen. This pen would not fit in the 2 pen case without the flap and I want to keep the stylus part intact. It has been a nice addition to my iPad Kaweco pen and I would recommend it highly. I prefer the two pen case without the flap for the normal sport pens but, this works the best for the iPad pen.
