Pentel Energel

If you are one of those people who has to write hundreds and hundreds of pages through the whole week the gel pens will suit you perfectly.

Differently to ballpoint pens, gel pens don’t require much pressure when writing because of the type of inks they use (pigments suspended in water-based gels), which it translates in smoother lines and less stress in your hand and fingers. 

There is wide gamma of good brands that you can try when buying gel pens. I in particular have only tried Pentel energel pens because of the good experiences I have had with this brand in particular (and that said I’m really happy with my set of pens).

Anyway, since I’m not the most qualify person for giving you the pros and cons of different brands when talking about gel pens I do want to give you a list of the best gel pens (based on the reviews I’ve read), so that, you will have a base to go forwards:

  • Pilot G2 Premium: A retractable and refillable pen (“Pilot G2 gel” is the cartridges reference).
  • Gelmushta Gel Pens: It has 120 different colors available. The set they offer it could suit you if you want to draw with different color pens

Feel free to try the ones you feel you are going to be more comfortable with and please leave a comment letting me know the one you like the most.   

Pentel Graph Gear 1000

Before I start talking about the Pentel Graphgear 1000 I first want to tell you about my experience with mechanical pencils, so that, you can picture the reason why I love this one in particular. I know from first hand that one of the issues that use to happened with mechanical pencils is that they end up breaking themselves (mine gets stuck, tip breaks up or simply the whole thing stops working).

I don’t know about you but I’m one of those superstitious guys who believes that if I don’t have my lucky mechanical pencil at hand I’m going to do wrong in my tests and all those stuffs, the issue with me is that stead of a unique mechanical pencil, my lucky one was a particular reference of Faber Castle that was sold in my collage. I really loved it! Especially because it has a long and thin tip and all its shape was slim, the inconvenience that I used to had is that I constantly had to buy at least two pencils of the same brand reference in order of having one in reserve in my bag because I’m a mechanical pencil destroyer and I didn’t want to mess up my test when the time shows up.

Since I was spending more money than What I really needed buying mechanical pencils I went to my lovely friend google looking for a better option, and guess what… Among all of the options I found I felt in love with the Pentel Graphgear 1000 because it gathers all of the things I like in a mechanical pencil: it’s elegant, has a perfect grab, it’s resistant, economic (compare to the amount I was expending before) and the thing that made me said “wow” because it really blew my mind is that it has a retractile tip. Yes, I know this simple but only because of that I’m saving the money of at least 3 of the mechanical pencils I used to buy before.

Pentel Pens

Pentel Pocket Brush Pen

When I first bought a pen I did it because I wanted to learn kanji, so that the first thing I did was go to google and typed “japanese brush pen”, the next thing I know, I found myself buying the first set of three pens that I saw. At the beginning I was really happy with my pens until I realized that I couldn’t refill them. It was really disappointing for me because I thought I could, but truth be told it was all my fault because I didn’t educate myself enough before buying. As such, I want to tell you why from my point of view the pentel brush pen is ideal for either people who want to begin using bristle tip pens or for those who already have experience using them. The main reason why I say this is because among all of the products you can find in markets, this pocket brush is one of the best in its cost/performance relation. That said I’ll give you some of the characteristics I like the most in this black brush pen:

  • This brush pen is refillable ( Pentel GFKP are easy to find).
  • It is an elegant and cheap pen.
  • Allows for drawing of different kinds of sketches (from thin to thick sketches)
  • It has a permanent ink brush.
  • It’s waterproof.
