It was difficult to wait for these items to show up, especially when I was nervous about the pens getting ruined in the crazy heat we've been having. The items arrived today, so I cracked open the white-padded envelope with the utmost glee.
So, here they are. I am quite excited to throw some of the 2.0 mm leads I have into that mechanical Staedtler leadholder, and the Pilot Down Force looks like a perfect companion to some of my Rhodia notebooks. The Uni Pin .24 mm offering seems like an interesting economy-level felt/plastic tip pen, so I look forward to seeing how the oil-based ink differs from other pens I've experienced.
I have an overwhelming quantity of stuff to review, so stay tuned!
