Put Your Best Pen/Pencil Forward

I was reading a blog about pens, and the blogger said (paraphrasing) that it’s important to use quality pens/pencils when writing to really bring out your best in what your doing. I thought about it and I have to agree, most of the time I'll just grab the closes pen that I have and jot down some notes but I think it's important that if there's something I care enough about to write it down, I have to use a quality writing instrument to display it in the proper ink/lead. Now I'm not saying to spend tons of money on pens/pencils (if you have go for it), just use the best product you have.

Review: Sakura Pigma Micron 01

What a great pen! I was a bit nervous about the fine tip thinking that it would break because I have a tendency to press down hard on my pens when writing but this wasn't the case. I love these pens for taking notes on fine paper like a bible because the ink doesn't bleed through the page. If you looking for a fine tip pen pick these up. The ones that I purchased are the 01 - .25MM nib, 6-color pack. This isn't where I purchased them but I love this store JetPens!

The Starting Point

Back in college (2003) a classmate who was majoring in Graphic Design gave me this pen. I used it on occasion and over the years forgot about it. On Monday (11/17/08) I was going through my pen drawer and can across this old favorite! It works like new, the description of the pen has faded over the years but the ink quality hasn't. It's a ITOYA Finepoint System .2. It's a gem to write with, doesn't bleed, works great if your using it everyday.

These are the pens that I see everyday in my home office.
