My fascination with Japanese artisan products stretches far beyond those with centuries of tradition and extends all the way to their modern wares…like pens. There is no other gel pen that can compare; and most importantly, my list-making and penmanship is at its best only when I’m writing with one of these guys. I use the 0.38 tips, but there is an even finer tip at 0.28!

I am such a loyal fan that I sent my brother to my favorite Japanese stationery shop in San Francisco to get more when my supply was dwindling, and I keep one hidden at work because I won’t share or chance it getting taken. Luckily, the Kinokuniya bookstore at Uwajimaya here in Seattle has a great selection, but if you’re not sure where to get one in your area you can easily order them online from the Tokyo Pen Shop. Look at the reviews by the way, these pens really are awesome and worth the $3 each. (They last a while too so you won’t run through them as fast as many other gels.)
