Collections Pen and Paper
July 1, 2012 – 10:10 pm
Yes, that’s right, another pen blog post. I may have a problem. Anyways, I have some new additions to the family and I didn’t want them to feel left out, so here they are!
Pens and pencils from left to right:
Pilot G2 Limited w/ Mont Blanc Refill – Probably my favorite pen at the moment. The metal body with the rubber grip is nice, and the Mont Blanc refill is as good as it gets.
Retro 51 Tornado – Another one given to me by my Uncle Paul, this is a great pen.
Pilot Multiball – A great-writing pen. It claims to write on any surface as well, including things like glass. But will it write on those glossy, ink-smearing, christmas gift tags? Time will tell.
Stabilo Bionic Worker – Cool-looking pen, and the all-rubberized body is nice, but the tip is way thick for a 0.5mm and the ink is very prone to smearing.
Zebra Regal NR5 – Very similar to the Pilot Precise V5.
Rotring Tikky Rollerpoint – Had high hopes for this one, but like the Stabilo, the tip is very thick for an “extra fine.”
Morning Glory Mach II – Yet another one very similar to the V5.
Uni Mitsubishi Pin – Love this one. It is a felt tip like the Microns and Sharpie pens, and the 0.1mm tip is super fine.
PU Rollerball – Don’t know a whole lot about this one, another given to me by my Uncle. Solid rollerball.
Uni-ball Power Tank – An air-pressurized ball point similar to the Fisher space pens. Writes upside down, which comes in handy whenever I’m hanging upside down.
Zebra Surari – A pretty good ballpoint which could maybe even rival the Jetstream.
Quasar Pen – This one, which I just rediscovered recently, was given to me by my grandma when I was a kid. Click the top and you’re treated to a light show of a rainbow of pulsing colors!
Laser Pointer Pen – Another one from Uncle Paul. It has a laser on one end and the other end can be pulled out into an antenna-style pointer, perfect for those impromptu orchestra conducting sessions.
Zebra F-701 w/ Fisher Refill – Solid all aluminum ballpoint, and the Fisher refill makes it even better.
Boardwalk Pen – My dad bought this at the Ward World Championship Wildfowl Carving Competition (that’s a mouthful), which he annually competes in. A guy made this out of the scrap wood from the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland.
Zebra Tect 2Way Drafting Pencil – A shaker pencil and a clicker pencil all in one!
Skilcraft Drafting Pencil – Another old rediscovered item.
Rotring 600 Drafting Pencil – One of the best there is. By far, my favorite pencil.
2 Uni-Ball E-Knock Erasers – Use these all the time in school, these are the best. I prefer them over the Staedtler Mars Plastic sticks, as they are a little softer and much easier to deploy.
and last but not least and not pictured, is the Zebra Expandz Ballpoint Pen. This is the one that I carry around on me every day. I love this little guy.
Notebooks from left to right:
Moleskine Passions Music Journal – This isn’t as good as I’d hoped it’d be, but it’s still pretty cool. Has all different sections for the musical adventures in your life.
Behance Dot Grid Journal – I’ve mentioned this one here.
Moleskine Lego Limited Edition Notebook – So awesome.
Rhodia Stable Bound Classic Notebook – A lot like field notes but just a little smaller and lot oranger.
Rhodia Reinforced Stable Bound Notepad – Nice little notepad.
