Removing one notebook.

The notebooks I have been carrying as of late – I don’t remember exactly when I re-added the pocket sized notebook to what I carry – but it has remained the same since then. I carry one Nock.co pocket sized notebook, one Leuchtturm1917 Bullet Journal, one Leuchtturm1917 Lined A5 and a regular sized Traveler’s Notebook filled with lined refills. The reason I carry two different lined notebooks is that one of them contains drafts for various long form stuff I am writing, while the other is just journal entries. Read On →

A Vanishing Point with CON-70?

I really love my newest pen, the CON-70. And, then, I got this idea after a few days of using the pen. Damn, I want a Vanishing Point with this converter. Like I have said many times, I don’t think the 0.4 or 0.5 you can get into the standard converter is enough. I usually can get through one or multiple days with that. Except for when I en up writing a lot by hand. Read On →

The Pen Addict 2018 Kickstarter

The Pen Addict Kickstarter just went live. I pledged in this time, for time first time.

Review: Pilot Metal Falcon

I got one of the Noodler’s flex pens in the spring. It was cheap, and I only ordered to verify that flex nibs was something I could get into. And, of course, it was. The next step was a little bit more difficult. Because I wanted something nicer, and hopefully less smelly. And, while there are options, there are not a lot of them. There was some from Franklin Christoph, two versions I think; I got the news when I was in the middle of it. Read On →

A good inkwell?

I’ve had this on my mind for a few months now, and things that stay that way for a very long time are usually in the “not the worst thing in the world” camp. The kind of bottle you get with your ink varies a lot, based on a few different factors; usually the price and the amount of ink. For example Iroshizuku have fantastic bottles, while Diamine have bad bottles and Noodlers aren’t the best, but not the best either. Read On →

Being left handed.

As a white straight cis male working I don’t have that much experience that the system are working against me; and I don’t experience much fill-in-your-ism-of-choice-here. But there is one area where I really can feel it. I’m left handed. There are some products more than others that seems to be designed in a way where they have made a mathematical model for the dead center for normal or the bullseye of normal. Read On →

More retractable fountain pens

So, if you want a good retractable fountain pen, you have one good option. And I have only seen one other option, which isn’t that good to be honest. On one side you have the Pilot Vanishing Point and on the other you have the Lamy Dialog 3. I have a VP and I love it, even though it has some constraints. The short version is that it is a special pen, where Pilot have made many hard choices in order to get a pen that is as good as it is. Read On →

Two years have passed.

There aren’t many things I’m worse at than keeping up with anniversaries and stuff like that. Part of the reason is that I write most of the post from a few weeks to a few months before they are going live, so I have little to no connection to when something will be live. That has the added benefit of me doing everything I can to make them have as little connection to “right now” as possible. Read On →

In rotation

I haven’t written about what I use and carry in a long time now. The pens I carry change from week to week, but what I have with me today is my Pilot Vanishing Point, TWSBI Eco Stub and TWSBI Eco Broad. And I have my trusted Travelers Notebook with two lined refill, one Nock.co pocket sized notebook. And two Leuchtturm1917 A5 notebooks; one lined for writing and one dot grid for tasks and stuff.

Binder Clips

Binder clips are probably my favourite “hack” to get page markers in notebooks that don’t come with them. They are dirt cheap and works great. I use them both with my Travelers notebook and my pocket sized notebooks to be able to find the first empty page as fast as possible. I don’t use any fancy ones, just the plain black no-name ones you can find in any office supply shop. Read On →
