Passport 005 Lightweight Paper Refill

09/02/2018
Mark S.
These are my favorite inserts. Tomoe River paper is truly in a class of its own when it comes to fountain pens in particular. The thinness of the paper means you won't be adding a lot of bulk to your notebook.

As a bonus, the pages are perforated. This doesn't interfere with writing in any way, it's very subtly done and you can write right over the nearly invisible line. It's nice to have the option....


Iroshizuku Ink

09/02/2018
Mark S.
The bottles are a work of art unto themselves, and you won't find a better quality ink anywhere. I have collected many brands over the years but if I had to pick one, or suggest one for someone new to fountain pens, this would be it.

I picked up Ina-ho (Rice Ear) from Tokyo Pen and of course it was packaged perfectly. If you are from the midwest you will recognize the color as the golden-brown with a hint of greenish undertone of growing wheat. So the name is appropriate.

All of Pilot's colors are great and have that unique Japanese quality of color that we don't have a word for in English. Refined, soothing, soulful? Try some and you'll see what I mean....


Mind Wave Page Flags

09/02/2018
Mark S.
These things are absolutely perfect. Each design is distinctive and a well-organized person could easily assign different meanings to the different flags if desired.

I had seen reviews elsewhere that these tear easily or don't stick. I've used them all and not found that to be the case. I suspect people are trying to quickly rip each flag off the pad in a hurry. Just take your time and ease each one off like a normal person and you won't have any trouble!...


Mark's Inc. Washi Wanderlust

09/02/2018
Mark S.
Reviewing the cosmic design here, and I couldn't be happier with it. Totally appropriate for all space-lovers, no matter if you are a guy or gal, old or young. It's hard to find that quality in Washi tape.

Tokyo Pen has the best selection of authentic Japanese Washi tape and they package everything absurdly well!...

Finding Washi tape for guys has been a real challenge. It's a shame, the stuff is really useful. I'm glad Tokyo Pen carries some guy-friendly designs, very few shops do....


Prera Iro-Ai

09/02/2018
Mark S.
These pens are a tremendous value. Perfect to give to someone just starting out in fountain pens or just collect them for yourself!

All of Pilot's pens write as well or better than other pens 3 times more expensive and Tokyo Pen has a fantastic deal on these Preras!

The capping mechanism is satisfyingly clicky, the demonstrator body is fun, and the accent colors pop more than is shown in photos.

For something different, try the stub nib. It will add a subtle calligraphic character to your handwriting;...


J. Herbin 30mL Ink Bottle

09/02/2018
Mark S.
You can't go wrong with Herbin. The Vert Olive ink is a golden green color. Saturation is mid-to-light like most of Herbin's inks. So, probably not one that would be great from a fine nib but in a broad, stub, dip pen, or brush this ink is great.

Tokyo Pen wrapped this bottle well, as they do with everything....

I ordered the new Rose Estia case & love it. The leather is so incredibly soft & the color has to be seen. It is a beautiful, deep rose. This is my third Estia & cannot recommend them highly enough....

Debbie Y.
I love this pen case. I ordered the Rose case on Thursday of this week & received it today. The color is so rich & the leather is so soft. This is my second medium pen case & Milloo is a fantastic brand. ...


Uniball Signo DX

08/14/2018
Sarah T.
I originally got the maroon .38mm in one of the starter pen packs, and quickly fell in love. I love smooth pens that don't smudge and have a fine, distinct line, and this is it. I love all the variety of colors, and my college notes are more concise now. I went on to buy red, black, and emerald in .38mm, and lilac in .28mm. I loved the .38mm and almost used the black one all up, but I found the .28mm would occasionally struggle with dryness and would quit in the middle of continuously writing. This didn't happen with the .38mm, so I'll be sticking with them from now on, since they still have a fine tip but never quit on me....

Erasable Frixion Ball 2 Biz

08/09/2018
Debbie Y.
I delayed ordering this pen for months, believing I didn't need it. I was wrong. I ordered the Ice Blue. I love the weight of the pen. I have wine red & violet in it. If you like Frixion, this is the one to get....


Uni Whiteboard Marker

08/02/2018
Weslley L.
It does not have a "strong" color compared to the others sold in this store, but if you are a math teacher, you will love it when drawing geometric figures or making tables. For physics teachers it is great for drawing diagrams, because being thinner allows you to have more details. For writing, the letter improves reasonably, although it does not have a darker color. I recommend it for detailed drawings....


Board Master Fat Chisel Tip

08/02/2018
Weslley L.
This marker is great for use in large whiteboards, but in small spaces on the whiteboard it stands out equally well. There is the possibility of changing the thickness to a fine letter holding the marker to have contact "In the thin end of its tip." Being smaller gives a better sense of control of writing....


Board Master Medium Chisel Tip

08/02/2018
Weslley L.
I really liked the writing of this whiteboard marker. There are two types of thickness, depending on the angle, and the way you hold the marker: Fine print and thick print. Also, depending on your ability to write, it is possible to have a Gothic style letter....


Platinum Preppy Crystal

07/25/2018
Deborah E.
I received this item in the Signature Stationery Set #1 and I love it! I haven't used a fountain pen before so I feel like this is a good first pen to try. Loading the cartridge was quick and easy, and the clear body looks cool but still professional. ...

Limited Edition Mary Quant Series Barrels

This was one of the first Coleto barrels I got and it started an addiction! I wasn't familiar with Mary but after some research, I fell in love with her designs! I also managed to get the matching ink refills with the flowers on the knock!...


019 Free Diary Weekly and Memo Refill

NZ1381584 Laura H.
This is my favourite refill for my TN. Plenty of space for daily events, scribbles, sketches and best of all: it doesn't waste half a diary if you have a couple of weeks that are a bit boring! Highly recommended for a more casual journalist....
