Fountain Pens:

  • Platinum PGB-12000M Red Makie Bikou Souryu – this pen is not widely available outside of Japan, and it’s a shame because it’s great.

Automatic Pencils:

  • Tombow MONO Graph 0.5 – cheap, good with a fancy shaking mechanism. And it’s hard to beat the built-in eraser.

Markers and highlighters:

Gel Pens:


  • Uni Jetstreamprobably the best ballpoint. If you plan to use it for note-taking go with the 0,5 version
