    I've never found a (non-automatic) pencil that's not nice to write with, only problem is everything you write ends up looking like your shopping list.

    Still, good purchase, Boo.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Yeah, aside from clutch pencils or lead holders that carry full width 2mm leads, but 0.5 or whatever are crap to write with.

    Just a quick check before I go on a spree, has anyone ordered from www.cultpens.com?
  • Deleted user 11 July 2012 00:58:55
    Also any recommendations for a medium weight, metal, moderate width ballpoint. Something that looks classy, simple, perfect for quick note taking but not too heavy to sit with it in my mouth when not writing. Preferably not with a lid.

    CultPens are great. Never had a problem with them.

    At my work we tend to print our presentations white on black (yes, I know, believe me I've tried to alter this) so quite often I find myself having to make amends on print outs, and scrawling my comments on the tiny white margins.

    So anyway, finally had the bright idea of buying myself a white ink gel pen. Honestly one of the best things that's ever happened to me.

    Thanks Spanky and Jeepers.

    I bought a Faber Castell clutch pencil from there a while ago and it's fantastic for sketching so much better than crap I was using before (not literally crap, I'm not mowgli).

    At madgod's place of work they do their presentations with tongue marks on windows.
  • Deleted user 11 July 2012 10:25:03
    Haha :D

    It's more to be "cool" and "classy" as opposed to wacky, but it is retarded so I won't argue.

    *bump*

    I gots the urge to buy some pens. Any decent websites to recommend, stationery-whores?

    I'm looking for something to use with a plain-paper Moleskine notebook - want a fine line, with no bleed.

    I use a staedtler fine liner, size 0.3. I use it for sketching etc and have never had any bleed.


    I may have spelled staedtler wrong.

    The Pilot G-Tec C4 is great and very cheap compared to some. Great, robust general purpose pen.

    The Zig Memory Systems Millennium is a more traditional fine nib sketching pen. Also lovely but not hardy.

    I don't believe either are water proof so no ink/water colour on top.

    I'll second the pilot G-Tec c4, lovely pen but I'm finding it oddly hard to source replacement ones in shops.

    I'm also using a staedtler pigment liner 0.05 which I quite like.

    Cool! Thanks for the suggestions. Amazon sell the Pilot, the Staedtler and the Zig, so I'm trying a couple of each.

    Still waiting for the Zig to arrive, but have tried the Staedtler and the pilot.
    Staedtler came as a set : 0.2mm, 0.4mm and 0.8mm. Smallest one is very nice.

    The Pilot though, abso-freaking-lutely rocks! Good job I bought a pack of 3, as Mrs Boo has already stolen one.

    Good work, people!

    The pilot is a bit of a cult classic, there are loads of kickstarter pens that are built to use it's refills. They're out of production now, and have been replaced with Hi-Tec C4 instead. I haven't tried one so I can't tell you what it's like.

    Red poster paint pen, or a knife dipped in 'ink'?
