pilot-drawing-pen-2-150x150-9319080

  Alex from Economy Pens was kind enough to send over this great guest review of the Pilot Drwaing pen. Browsing through the ‘Felt Tip Marker’ category on JetPens, I came across this, the Pilot Drawing Pen. I haven’t heard too much discussion about this pen, so I decided to add it to my cart in hopes that it would be a new favorite. Sadly, this will go in the kitchen pen cup and will not hold a coveted position in my pen case. Allow me to … [Read more…]

pilot-petit-series-tips-150x150-5011327

The nice folks over at JetPens sent me over the series of Pilot Petit pens recently and I was initially a bit slow in trying them out but I’m glad I finally did so.  I’ve used the fountain pen version before, but the other two were new to me for this review. … [Read more…]

schrade-tactical-pen-nib-150x150-8761585

I’ve had my eye on a few different tactical pens for a while, and they are all very interesting but with quite a few differences between the features they offer.  Recently I came across this Schrade Tactical Fountain Pen, and it was the first tactical fountain pen I had ever seen, so I immediately contacted the manufacturer and they sent me this sample model to review free of charge, so a big thanks to the folks at Taylor Brands for making this review … [Read more…]

zebra-sarasa-se-07-150x150-9415379

    A while back, my friends at Zebra sent me over a bunch of their new Zebra Sarasa SE pens and I’ve been using them ever since.  At first glance nothing really jumped out at me about these Sarasa SE 07s.  When I picked one up and started using it I was pretty impressed.  The Zebra Sarasa SE Gel ink pen is available in 8 colors:  Blue, Black, Red, Green, Violet, Lt. Blue, Pink, and Orange. … [Read more…]

visconti-michelangelo-facets-150x150-4555119

My first hands on experience with the Visconti Michelangelo was at the National Stationery Show in NYC earlier this year, and just seeing it person instantly made me want to buy one for myself.  I was able to try out an Extra Fine version of the nib at the show, so once I got home, I jumped on my computer and checked out the Goldspot pens site to see how much the pen might set me back…minus a nice bloggers discount (thats for you FTC) to make the … [Read more…]

ohto-comfort-sharp-lead-holder-150x150-7350917

The Ohto Comfort Sharp Lead Holder is something I probably never would have tried out, had it not been for the generosity of Brad and Jetpens.  Typically I don’t like to use lead because of its tendency to get flat and dull very quickly, so to date I stick to my Kuru Toga that automatically rotates the lead to keep it constantly sharp.  For those of you that do like writing with lead, this lead holder is an interesting option. … [Read more…]

richard-binder-nib-adjustment-comparison-150x150-9816657

    Earlier this year when I went to the Philadelphia Pen Show, I was lucky enough to stop by the Richard Binder table to drop off some of my pens to have him adjust the nibs for me.  One of the pens I left with him was my stainless steel Lamy Studio which I love, but I’ve always wished the Studio EF nibs were a bit more fine. … [Read more…]

kaweco-sport-classic-fountain-pen-uncapped-150x150-8145864

  My good friends from Jetpens.com sent over this great little Kaweco Sport Classic Fountain Pen that I’ve actually had my eye on for a while, but had kind of forgotten about.  Normally I wouldn’t share a picture of just a box, but I really like the color combo here as well as the design and font, just a very “charming” looking box if you ask me….and I really don’t use that word very often. … [Read more…]

quiver-single-pen-holder-on-rhodia-150x150-3426878

There are many different pen holders and attachments for notebooks out there to hold your pens, however I think the Quiver Leather Pen Holders might be the nicest and most nice fitting that I have seen to date.  Also, just for the record, these were sent over to me courtesy of the manufacturer, but as always the review remains completely impartial. … [Read more…]

bic-4-color-grip-ballpoint-comparison-150x150-3224405

The Bic 4 Color Grip Ballpoint Pen is a new twist on the classic version of the Original Bic 4 Color Pen.  It has been out for a while now, but there has been quite some time that has gone by between the release of the original, and the release of the new Bic 4 color grip ballpoint pen. … [Read more…]

zebra-r301-uncapped-150x150-1961501

Our friends over at Zebra sent some samples of their new pens over recently, and the one that really grabbed my attention was the sleek looking R-301 Stainless Steel Refillable Rollerball.  I’ve been using it for a few weeks now, so lets take a look, shall we? … [Read more…]

zebra-erase-away-erasabel-pen-150x150-8776888

As I mentioned earlier this month, the folks from Zebra were nice enough to send over a bunch of their new line of pens, so today we will take a look at the Zebra Erase Away Retractable and Erasable ballpoint pen.  My pen of choice isn’t usually an erasable ballpoint pen, but I still wanted to give this a fair look. … [Read more…]

magna-tank-pilot-g2-comparison-150x150-9563823

    Earlier this week I reviewed the Magna Tank Long Lasting Gel Ink Pen that claims to have three times the ink of standard gel ink pens, and with a claim like that I couldn’t resist coming up with some sort of test to see if it was true.  After literally days of scribbling on paper with the Magna Tank and a Pilot G2 I’ve got some answers. … [Read more…]

magna-tank-gel-ink-pen-uncapped-150x150-4718828

    I stumbled across this Magna Tank Long Lasting Gel Ink Pen on Amazon one day and was surprised by the claim that it lasts 3 times longer than a regular gel ink pen.  With that kind of claim about being a long lasting pen, it was kind of impossible for me not to buy one to get a better look at it.  This will be part one of a two part look at this pen, with part two being Monday’s post. … [Read more…]

zebra-z-grip-gel-stick-150x150-9607254

  A little while ago I got a great little package of new pens from the folks at Zebra, which included these nice Z-Grip Gel Stick pens in blue and red.  I know many of you prefer to hit up Amazon or Staples for lots of your office supply shopping, however the link there is right to the Zebra Store since it looks like lots of places are not carrying these yet. … [Read more…]
