    I love these PILOT V Ball Grip 0.7. Not very upscale but I just love the result.

    Not quite stationery, but this is a thing I deeply want.

    I found a V7 pilot hi-tecpoint 0.7 kicking around in my bag that feels like pure silk to use. Reckon if I can find a box of 0.4 that will become a serious contender for favourite mad scribbling notes pen.

    @DB - I dream of a day when I have space for shit like that.

    Yeah, lovely. They've got a brilliant retro range as well that I keep staring at.
    Cool. I believe it's the silver pencil from the Ivanhoe range. My work gives them out as 5-year employee gifts. Then if you stick around for 10 years you get the biro, then I think the fountain pen at 15 years
    Gorgeous. They're bloody expensive as well.
    I got this pencil eventually, it's very nice. Bit annoyed that it didn't come in a fancy presentation case like the ones that my colleagues have got. Just a cheapo cardboard box. But that's probably just ungrateful of me.

    Not sure when I'm ever going to use this pencil but its a nice thing to have

    Yes that's the one. I don't know about the material though. Rhodium? IIRC mine is stainless steel but it looks exactly the same

    I find small, expensive and losable things a stress to carry about. Lighters and pens are classic examples of things you watch like a hawk with rising panic if they're out of your grasp.

    If all lighter thefts (intentional and unintentional) were prosecuted the legal system would collapse within days.

    I want a Pliot Vanishing Point fountain pen. It's a fountain pen that clicks in and out like a ballpoint. It's awesome.

    I want to get some cheapo pens with someone's face printed on them. Is there a good place that does that?

    Are you wanting ones where the jizz slides off their faces when you turn it upside down?

    Just a plain old static jpg/bmp/whatever.

    That's not some, that's loads!

    I dunno, google "insert pens". Remember to spell it carefully.

    Yes, go to google and get out of my beautiful, expensive thread about quality drafting instruments. Take your disposable biros with you.

    Nah, the masturbation idea makes more sense if you consider the cultural setting.

    Yes...

    Anyway, getting back to stationery, I've found that there's a company that are stocking the 'remake' of the Palomino Blackwing 602, aka 'The best pencil ever made'.

    Bit pricey at 24.95 for a dozen, but I thought I'd give 'em a go.

    Will report back.

    Picked some up today.

    Nice pencil!

    Ideal for writing, probably less good for sketching and so on, as it doesn't take a particularly fine point, but the tag line about 'Half the pressure, twice the speed' is spot on - you hardly have to touch the paper to make a mark.
