Can we have a /fa/ stationary thread? Pens, Mechanical Pencils, notebooks etc.
Inb4 montblanc pens and other absurdly priced statement pens that are more a symbol of success useful.
Looking for stuff you could use daily and not he too worried about.
you mean stationery
pilot/namiki for pens (fountain and rollerball, nothing else acceptable)
rotring and pentel for pencils (drafting only, nothing else acceptable)
lamy is not /fa/
it's babby's first pen
Ever owned a rotring clutch pencil? Any use?
>tfw I've always wanted a thread like this. ;_;
I'm in sales, and whenever I'm closing a sale, I will hand my pen over to the client. The client will use my pen to sign the contract and write a check. I've always believed that this establishes a sense of trust between the client and the salesman.
I prefer using something that is sleek, heavy, and professional looking. A solid clicking mechanism is a plus. For these purposes, I always carry a Fisher AG7 with a 1.0mm black cartridge.
I use it all the time, although I'm an industrial design major. Hell of a lot better than pic related
I use this in 90% of my notes.
Rest 10% http://www.amazon.co.uk/Pukka-Stripes-Circles-Squared-Dividers/dp/B00EPEP1XI/ref=sr_1_16?s=officeproduct&ie=UTF8&qid=1429123626&sr=1-16
as for the pen http://pilotpen.us/brands/frixion/
Pentel Q1005, best pencil ever made.
Fuck the Rotring 600, it's nice but the Pentel is glorious perfection.
Can't wait to get this in the mail
Also for writing and making notes: Pilot G-tec/Hi-tec series.
My handwriting is a bit jittery here, just had way too much coffee.

My second parker vector in stainless steel gold came today, because I wanted a second one for red ink and my silver one's been an excellent daily driver for over a year.
> Same model pen
> Nib ball is visually larger
> Doesn't write as fine, more like normal
> Nib was off-centred and had to be re-calibrated
> Steel isn't as glossy
I feel it's not fake because you can't buy fakes on alibaba or ebay, and the pen is really cheap to start with. But the amount of variance between these two are worrying me.
copped these at muji by my apt in nyc
They write very fine lines with no bleeding
