Jetpens (Part 3)

Continuing where I left off: The Graphgear 1000, and the Nomadic PE-07 pen case. Making this order from Jetpens convinced me to sort and organize the pens I already had (and throw out the ‘dead’ ones).

That, resting magnificently (note the consummate v’s)  on top of the box is the Nomadic pen case. I bought it because it had a bunch of pockets and the product info said it would hold 30-40 pens. I had this idea, just now, that it might do well at holding gaming dice, or craft supplies, or a GPS, or a Nintendo DSi & game cartridges, too. Quite versatile!

Finally is the Graphgear 1000. This has immediately become my new favorite pencil. I love that the sharp lead-holder retracts when you click the clip on the side. It has a sturdy metal grip, with rubber knurls, and a thin barrel. I also appreciate that it has an indicator to show you what lead hardness you have loaded into the pen. I didn’t know there was such a thing, and that is one of the main reasons I bought this pen. It runs $15, which is high for a pencil, but I found this one on sale for a few dollars less. I HIGHLY recommend it if you like drafting-type mechanical pencils. Here is a much more in-depth review. It was Dave’s review that spurred me to buy the pencil.

So, in a nutshell, I am happy with every product I bought from Jetpens. You use a pen or pencil every day – you may as well find some you really enjoy!

  1. And the GraphGear 1000 may be had in a variety of lead widths. The ISO color for the lead size is the color used for the pencil highlights (and the digit is on the eraser cover). I like the 0.7mm. The pencil is available in 0.3, 0.4, 0.5, 0.7 and 0.9mm.

    They also make it in two sizes of ballpoint pen: 0.5 and 0.7mm.

    Collect the entire set.

  2. Nice posts! The blue 0.7 mm GraphGear 1000 found at Utrecht was also my first $15 mechanical pencil. I liked its looks so much, that I got the 0.5 and 0.9 versions shortly after. Ironically my current personal favorite, the black 0.5 mm Pentel Graph 1000, displaced them all from the top spot since I found it more comfortable for drawing.

  3. Thanks so much for reading my posts! I’m checking out your website too. Because how can robot ninjas not be made of win? Oh and I followed you on Twitter. The more art reviews the better!

  4. I would bet that it’s either an Artbin 2-tray box or a customizable tackle box from Bass Pro Shop, but really do not recognize the slotted sides that might hold brushes or such.
