Recent Acquisitions

I've purchased or acquired some new things in the past few weeks and thought I'd share them with you.

Pictured above are a Pentel Quicker Clicker 0.7, 2 Pentel Rolling Writer R100s, a TWSBI Diamond 530 with a medium nib, a NOS Sheaffer Imperial III "C" with a fine nib, a Hero (886?), a Sheaffer NoNonsense with medium nib, the new 2011 Aquamarine Lamy Safari with fine nib, a Cross Aventura with medium nib, and on the far right, a Fuliwen (2012?). I cannot find any information on the Chinese pens aside from the numbers with question marks by them, which were found on the pens themselves. If anyone has any more information on them I'd greatly appreciate it.

2 Pilot BeGreen Rexgrips, a Pentel Sharplet-2 0.7mm, a vintage Swingline Cub stapler, some older Swingline staples, and a package of Bic Student's Choice Mechanical Pencils with 0.9mm lead.

I was thinking of reviewing one of these items I recently got, does anyone have any suggestions? I was considering maybe the Cross Aventura, but I'm open to suggestions. :)

Sheaffer Sentinel Ballpoint Pen Review

I hope everyone had a great 4th of July!

I finally found a job, which is why my posting has slowed down as of late. This time it's not so much the lack of funds, it's now the lack of time. :) But while on vacation, I bought some pens and reviewed one of them while staying in the cabin.

The paper used was a Moleskine Sketchbook. The pen isn't actually purple as the picture may suggest. My battery died in my digital camera so I had to use my cell phone to take the picture of the pen, which kind of screws up the colors.
