more japanese writing implement action
Okay, so I need to talk about pens and pencils again. Bear with me. I needed another mechanical pencil, so of course that forced me to place another order with Jet Pens
. The service was super quick as usual! I got the Pilot Presso Side Knock mechanical pencil
, but I’m not sure exactly why I picked that one. Maybe I thought it was cute. That is highly likely. Anyway, it has a side click and a pretty good-sized eraser on top. It feels comfortable in my hand and writes smoothly. I also got some lead in both H and HB. Now I am thinking I also need a mechanical pencil with a really fine, sharp lead. Probably a good idea, right? Any suggestions?
I also got a couple of new pens. My brother
had to fly to California for the day last week, and he ended up with some time to kill, so of course I told him he should go to Maido or Kinokuniya and buy me some pens. Ha! Lest you think I’m a big brat, I could
have sent him to the petite bra store, so you see, I am not so evil. Anyway, the green pen is the Uni-Ball Signo in .38mm. It is NOT the Signo DX, and I’m actually not sure what the difference is. If I were really obsessed, I would know. It’s a nice gel roller pen. The other pen is the Zebra Techno Line ballpoint pen in 0.4mm. I got it based on a recommendation from Lydia
. It’s a fine-point ballpoint pen, but I hate to say I am not feeling the love for this pen. I find that the ink is a little prone to smearing, and it lacks the smooth flow, the ink-skating-over-the-paper feel of the Uni-Ball Jetstream Sport. I am not, however, giving up on the Zebra. If Lydia says it’s great, I am willing to give it a chance.
