Bought this for watercolors. The paper is excellent for that purpose, but really is a little to textured for what I think of as standard flash card use. Medium weight for watercolor paper.

Very nice, a little scratchy and can skip a little bit while drawing a steady line, but the feel of the pen is great in the hand, as the grip is soft yet non-yielding. Haven't tried to purchase refills for this yet so can't say if there are any. The clicking mechanism is a little loud for a classroom.
My first fountain pen....

My first fountain pen. I love the extra fine nib, can be scratchy on cheap paper. Ink lasts much longer than the fine nib even. I like the clear body so you can see the ink flow. Allows you to write softer than with a gel pen, which helps my hands while scribbling notes for hours in class. Grip is slick, but never slips because of the ergonomic ridges. Excellent everyday carry pen. I have it in my backpack, have tumbled it around a bit, and everything is still strong and is definitely not leaking.

Beware: this is an entry point for fountain pen addiction, purchase with caution.

Just an everyday mechanical pencil. Long, with a rubber grip portion. Not heavy. Not really great for carrying in your pocket. Works without being too expensive. Won't have to worry about losing it.

Works just like all of the other Kuru Toga models out there. Slick barrel which can be uncomfortable. Very light weight. Eraser looks large, but I haven't used it to erase anything. Nice to be able to see the mechanism and the lead count. Perhaps a little greener than the picture.
Great gel highlighter...

Great gel highlighter in pale colors. Will cause gel ink to bleed after two swipes, no matter the age of the gel or the type of paper. Pencil lead has the same characteristics after being highlighted, will smear.

Don't use with fountain pen ink writing at all. Instant smear, which I really should have expected, but decided to attempt anyway.

Haven't tried this with ballpoint but it really might be the only option left. I am rather disappointed that I can only circle things with these highlighters with my current writing instruments. Will work well on laser printed sheets and most textbooks. Will not work well with inkjet prints.

The Sharpie Gel ones are better with gel ink.
Excellent knock eraser....

Excellent knock eraser. Wide enough for larger erasing, and narrow enough for some detail work. I use this while completing my engineering homework which can be detailed and long and I hate recopying it. Works well with heavier marks and I tried it with success on a grade H lead. Does have dust gathering properties.

I have a lot of erasers, and if I am erasing less than half a page this is my go to choice.
I was forced to buy this...

I was forced to buy this elsewhere due to not being able to wait for JetPens to get this back in stock.

The lead sleeve is what really sells this, it extends with advancing the lead by clicking the button on the end, but when you use the clip the entire sleeve is retracted. Makes a little bit of a loud sound when the sleeve is retracted, but perfect for pocket carry. Heavy but lighter than the rotring 600. The grip is nice and will not slip. Good for hands of all sizes.

I would recommend getting a high purity graphite lead darker than a HB, otherwise the line is very light and a little difficult to erase. Have not had issues with lead breakage yet.

Excellent lead for the Kuru Toga pencils. Has an excellent quality of lead. Does have a better wear pattern (slightly) than normal pencil lead so I would say it is worth it if you have many rotational action pencils.

Excellent pen for those who like a fine line, but not too fine. Has much more ink capacity than Uni-ball Signo pens available in your ordinary office supply shop. Similar tip though. The grip is useful but not cushiony.

The main difference for me between the Signo and the Hi-Tec C is the tip of the pen. The Hi-Tec has a needle point with some give to it, so if you are prone to writing hard, the Signo might be better. I have not had any ink flow problems with this pen (I had some issues with the Hi-Tec C due to keeping it in the wrong position in my pencil bag).

If you have a heavy hand and like less give on the pen tip, the Signo might be the best choice for you. I haven't really found a difference in ink quality between Signo and Hi-Tec C, but I haven't dumped any water on my writing for a while.
