Solid Aluminum Pen and Stylus

Solid Aluminum Pen and Stylus and Titanium Version Clips

A few weeks ago we reviewed the Solid Titanium Pen and Stylus from Big Idea Design, and they were kind enough to send up these aluminum versions to check out next.  In addition to this review, we will also be doing a giveaway later this week of both the standard aluminum version and the XTS which is the shorter version you see here, so be sure to check back in for that.  If you can't wait for the giveaway, feel free to head on over to the Big Idea Design … [Read more...]

Titanium Pen and Stylus with Multiple Refills by Big Idea Design (Launched on Kickstarter)

Kickstarter Titanium Pen Stylus with Pilot Precise V5 Refill Inserted

Back in June of last year we highlighted a really cool new pen that was being funded through Kickstarter that took the refills for dozens of your favorite pens, and also functioned as a stylus.  The pen got enough momentum to actually get funded and I recently received mine as a funder of the project.  The Titanium Pen and Stylus can be found over at the Big Idea Design website if you are interested in purchasing one. … [Read more...]

Checking Back in – Whats the Most Popular Pen After the Back to School Rush?

The Best Selling Pens on Amazon After the Back to School Season

So I like to keep an eye on where the Pilot G2 falls in the ranks of Amazon's Top Selling Pens, because quite frankly I don't understand why it sells so well based on the poor performance I've seen from it.  Based on this screen shot from 9/25/2012, it looks like the back to school season shopping has again secured the Pilot G2 as one of the top selling pens on Amazon.  As you can see, three of the top four selling pens on there are some version of the … [Read more...]

Uniball Vision Elite BLX – Colors infused with Black Ink

Uniball Vision Elite BLX

The brand new Uniball Vision Elite BLX pens may not immediately jump out as being anything different, but you should probably take a closer look.  These look just like the standard Uniball Vision Elite pens, right?  Take a closer look, because instead of the standard colors each has black ink mixed with a regular color.   … [Read more...]

Solid Titanium Pen with Capacitive Stylus Takes Amazingly Ridiculous Number of Refills

Available in Bead Blasted Matte Black, High Polished Chrome, and Bead Blasted Matte Silver

  Today while I was checking out one of my favorite non-pen sites (Uncrate) I came across...an amazing pen, go figure.  This solid titanium pen with a capacitive stylus takes more refills than any pen I've ever seen before.  I'm really itching to get my hands on this thing to do a review, but it looks very promising.  You can find it here on Kickstarter, which is appropriate because I think this pen literally kicks the s4#!t out of any of the other … [Read more...]

Pilot Precise V5 RT Liquid Ink Pen Review

Pilot Precise V5 RT Assorted Colors

I've always been a fan of the Pilot Precise line of pens, and these Pilot Precise V5 RT Retractable Liquid Ink Pen (from Office Max, great service btw, I'll post about that some other time though) are the first ones I have bought in a long time because they always seem to last for such a long time.  I was reminded of them by @Speedmaster who writes the fantastic blog, Amateur Economist which is full of interesting news about watches, pens, economics, mens … [Read more...]

The sleek design of the STAEDTLER liquid point pens

In a recent trip to Staples to see what office supplies needed to be reviewed, I came across the STAEDTLER liquid point .3mm pens and was very interested in them.  Liquid ink pens that were German engineered with .3mm points, whats not to like?  With much anticipation, I threw these into my basket with a few other things and headed for the checkout. … [Read more...]

Paper Mate Liquid Flair Medium Point (previously Liquid Expresso) Review

Paper Mate Liquid Flair 8 Pack

I have always been a big fan of the Paper Mate Liquid Flair pens, but before this review, it had been a long time since I used them. The first thing I noticed upon revisiting these pens was the name, are these Liquid Flair pens, or are they Liquid Expresso pens? My old ones that I bought back in 2002 or so are clearly labeled Liquid Expresso...but when I ordered them from Amazon.com the package said Liquid Expresso, and some of the pens were labeled Liquid … [Read more...]

Pilot Razor Point Liquid Ink Marker Pens Extra Fine

Pilot Razor Point 8 Pack (Extra Fine)

These Pilot Razor Point EF pens that I picked up from Amazon.com were kind of an impulse purchase. I was doing my Christmas shopping and I am usually a sucker for free shipping so I just start adding stuff to my order, and these pens caught my attention and ended up in my cart. I dont know if I'm just remembering wrong, or what, but I feel like I have been using this pen or something very similar from Pilot for years now, and I have always enjoy writing … [Read more...]
