Tombow AirPress Pen
Not everything on here is just about the mighty Filofax, I'm equally passionate about stationery and all things office. Christmas was a much less extravagant affair this year but I still had plenty of quality family time, however, gifts were also a lot less extravagant! My sister purchased a few items for me that are definitely stationery and office related, a book and a pen!
The book is titled "The Checklist Manifesto" by Atul Gawande and published by Profile Books. I'm not going to review the book on here just yet, partly because I need to read and secondly my blog isn't about books.
The pen is an AirPress made by Tombow who are based in Germany, supposedly it writes on wet paper and can be used upside down, something I need to test first. It writes very comfortably although the pen shell is quite chunky, the nib is black ink with 0.7 ball making it in the fine category.
It performed well, I scribbled for a few minutes upside down and it continued to work as it claimed it would, it also had no problem writing on wet paper. This pen will be going in my Maxpedition "fatty" organiser which I keep in the car as a survival and DIY kit (something I will review very soon). I know these pens can be bought for £5-£10 in the UK on places like eBay and Amazon, so I don't consider them expensive and a worthwhile investment.
