Staedtler 925-25

12/08/2018

This is one of the best mechanical pencils available today. The grip is near perfect for me, just the right diameter, close to the tip, and the knurling is sharp but shallow allowing a very secure hold to your finger's skin but not deep enough to be felt below the skin. Just like all Staedtler products, every aspect of the ergonomics of this writing instrument are well thought out and refined.

The price is higher than many other mechanical pencils but it's well worth what you get. The mechanism is solid and the all metal construction very durable. I have every size available to the USA and have never had the first problem. The only improvement I would make to this line would be the addition of my favorite lead size, 0.4 mm....


S3 Sharp Drawing Pencil

Brass clutch, metal clip, lead jam clearing rod, very good diameter grip which extends close to the writing tip for great control, available in two great lead sizes for detailed work, 0.3 and 0.4 mm. This Pilot has many features to it's credit at a fraction of the cost of most drafting style pencils. I keep reaching for it and plan to purchase several more. Highly recommended....


Acro 300

For me, writing with a specific pen comes with certain feeling. The 300 makes me feel like I'm writing with an upgraded BIC stick pen. Is this a good feeling? Yes. I remember a time when BIC pens were quite popular and what everyone used. Teachers and students, moms and pops, the service guy, the next door neighbor, everyone! The 300 ink is an upgrade as well; ballpoint ink that's darker and smoother. Also, oil-based ink as well as hybrid ink which the Acro 300 contains are excellent to use with highlighters; the ink doesn't smear at all. Am I happy with my 300? Have I purchased one a second time? Yes. Would I buy a third? Yes. Would I recommend to others? Yes!...


Zebra Rougel

Snatched up the yellow, orange, pale pink, and pale blue. I bought the Rougel in the past, but they were offered in different colors. A pen having a great design, great weight, great ink, and now great new colors still remains to be a great metal-bodied writing instrument!...

The last time these pens were offered at TPS, they came in white, gold, red, pink, and light pink. I had gotten all five and ordered them QUICKLY. I've learned from past experience that you had better snatch limited pens up as fast as you can or you'll lose out. These pens are fabulous! Great ink, great weight, and great design. Just ordered the orange and yellow to replace the gold and red I had given away as parting gifts to coworkers. Perfect gifts for female family and friends alike! I recommend this item....


Suatelier Korean Sticker

I absolutely love the suatelier stickers in general. My friend gave me the rain drop sticker sheet (the gold colors are so pretty) and the expressions are the best! I then ordered the animal farm and the panda stickers and im honestly so worried to use them because its so cute!!! Cannot reccomend these enough, its really affordable and absolutely adorable. I always use them on letters for my other college friends and they just add so much fun and flavor to the letter~ perfect for planners as well (had a friend use it for spacing so she can immediately get to a page in her planner!)...


Acro 1000

11/26/2018

I purchased a Parker Jotter because all the reviews I read said it was a wonderful pen. After I received one I asked myself, "What was all the rave about?" Needless to say, I didn't use it often. I was still searching for a pen that could take its place when I came across Kimberly's April 24, 2015 "Acro 1000" YouTube video. For some time, I questioned the price and wondered if I would like the ink as I'm a big fan of Jetstream ink, but I knew had to try it at least. I received my order today, ripped open the packaging (love the candy treat and personal note, thank you) and put pen to paper. I am happy to announce that the Acro ink has surpassed my expectations. This pen body is simplistic and professional looking. Yes, the body is metal and plastic but it doesn't take away from it looks or feel whatsoever. While I don't think I'll ever stop being a fan of Jetstream ink, I have to say, Acro ink is surely a runner up!...


Nano Dia

Nano Dia is really good. I bought four Uni 552 drafting pencils in 0.4 mm lead size and loaded them with the four different lead hardness grades of Nano Dia. After writing several pages, I can't decide which I like best, they all look good. This formulation works well in every grade. I'm keeping Nano Dia in all four pencils for the fun of experimentation!...


Mitsubishi Field Pencil 2.0mm

If you're looking for a knock type 2.0 mm pencil you'll love these. Good mechanism, solid build, and very good knurling. Using these you can feel the quality, very reasonably priced....


Pentel Orenz Grip Metal

11/26/2018
Mark M.
This pencil is in a league of it's own. For precision work, there is none better. In fact, it's as close as a 'do everything' mechanical pencil available today:

Lead protection is very effective, i have Ain Stein 0.2 2B loaded and rarely have lead breakage.

Long writing between knocks gets it close to an autofeed pencil.

Lead rotation is unnecessary with the 0.2 mm size, the 0.3 does benefit from rotating the pencil in your hand every few words but it's optional!

The grip is different, but I quickly became used to it. It is secure and somehow contributes to the precision of putting the lead in an exact location.

I have a notebook with an extra extra narrow line spacing. At first it was almost unusable for me so I practiced tiny penmanship in it. 0.4 mm is a little big for this application. With other brands of pencils I use 0.3 mm, when I switch to the Orenz metal grip in 0.3 my writing naturally speeds up! With the 0.2 the writing is natural, precise, and even faster. It's just so controllable.

The cost for all this goodness is lead usage. Naturally, very thin diameter lead will wear down faster. For me it's a very acceptable trade-off. ...

Useful for scrapebooking or other project for school and you want to want to stick stuff to poster boards. These come in handy. ...


Mono Graph Zero

11/14/2018
Mark M.
Bought one of these to try after watching a Clutch Situation video featuring this pencil. After experiencing this pencil with the Tombow lead I just bought two more! Very reasonably priced for the quality. The blue pencil is drop dead gorgeous and I'm thinking about ordering the pink one if it's more red than pink like the picture.

Not only do Tombow get the lead right, they also have dialed in an ideal knurling....


Mitsubishi Mechanical Pencil

These simple yet sturdy drafting pencils are a real find. They are reasonably priced, so having several of one size in order to have a range of lead grades available for drawing is quite practical....


Pentel Orenz Grip Metal .5mm

11/14/2018
Mark M.
I really enjoy all 3 sizes of the Orenz. At first, you may think that the advanced lead protection features of this pencil are not necessary on a 0.5 mm lead size. 2 features make this an exceptional pencil in this size: 1.) the lead sleeve completely retracts, making this model pocket safe, and 2.) the lead sleeve moves into the body as you write. This much travel gives me a full written page (with 0.5) before the next lead advance.

The grip feels unusual but I adapted quickly. I found the black anodized grip gives less 'bite' to the rings and is a little more comfortable....

Lovely pencil! I was surprised by the twist eraser. Great quality, customer service, and fast shipping. ...


Acro 1000

Dzevad B.
I love the Acro 300 and this one is the same but with metal heavier feel to it and my pens came matte (black and light blue versions) which makes it even better as they are more grippier. These are perfect for me as they are not too heavy (I hate heavy pens), write superbly, have classy design and are of perfect tapered diameter around 1cm which is just perfect for my fingers. 5 stars and more for sure...

I wasn't sure what to make of these at first but I've used them twice now. They are quite handy and attach and fold over really well on the page without added bulk. ...


Uni Style Fit Shell Three

10/09/2018
Lori E.
I received the black with polka dots pen body for my birthday, along with the Uni Style Fit Meister 5. The black with dots version is beautiful. It surprised me to see it alongside the rose pink Meister looking so pretty. I selected black, blue black and brown black for the inks. Even they look attractive through the clear section.

I chose the .5 ink tips, and they give a smooth, nice writing experience. I’ve tried the .38, but prefer the .5 The Uni ink colors I’ve tried (12 or 13) are all nice colors. I highly recommend the Uni Style Fit multi pens and their inks. ...
