The current every day or every week writing utensils: (starting from left to right)
1.) K&Company Black Smash Stick- Used for art journaling and writing on snail mail envelopes. The glue on this thing works exceptionally well, too!
2.) Dong-A Anyball Ballpoint Pen (0.7 mm)- I recently purchased this on my summer Korea trip as an "everyday purse pen." I like the comfortable rubber grip and how smooth it writes. Retractable pens are my favorite as I find them the most convenient when traveling.
3.) Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica Gel Pen (0.4 mm)- This pen was also purchased in Korea, and what attracted me to it was the fine tip for those tight writing spaces and thin lines. I find myself using this pen more with the hobonichi and midori grid paper.
4.) Pilot Precise V5 Stick Rolling Ball Pen (Extra Fine)- A coworker of mine would always use these pens for marking notes in contracts and reports, so one day I asked if I could "borrow" her pen to jot something down real quick. I loved how light and precise (hence the name) it felt. Went out and bought my own pack that night. These pens are used as my work pens now, as I call them, and are used to circle or point out things in reports we run, such as updates, errors, discrepancies, changes, etc.
5.) Pilot BeGreen Bottle 2 Pen- This pen was the beau's but somehow ended up in my collection after we moved. It's pretty cool that it's made from a recycled plastic bottle. And for a gel pen, the ink is practically smear-proof and dries almost instantly.
6.) Delfonics Ballpoint Pen- This was given as a gift, and I love it. The wood body and lightweight feel make this the perfect travel companion for my midori notebook. They just look so well together.
7.) Zebra F-301 Ball Point Pen- This is my business pen, the pen I use when I have go to fancy meetings and mingle. The steel body looks a little more on the professional side, wouldn't you agree? Or if I think I'll be in a position to possibly share my pen with any higher-ups, I bring this one as a back up. I get compliments on it all the time, especially from the guys. (Maybe they think it's this cool pen instead, which is totally on my wish list!)
8.) Sakura Pigma Micron Pen (size 01= 0.25 mm)- My crafting pen I use on textured or crafting paper.
9.) Java Jet 3 Ball Pen- This was purchased in Korea, too. I got it because I realized that I didn't own a 3-color multi pen. So now I do.
10.) Highlighter- Adding a bit of neon will just about catch anyone's attention, so I use this for everything- highlighting reminders, highlighting appointment times, special events, birthdays, etc.
I'd love to know what are some of your favorite writing utensils!
