    One in black, one in purple
    Being a leftie its one of the only inexpensive pens ive found that doesnt smudge when i write. Also, the purple is a fantastic deep royal color

    Zebra f701 with spacepen cartridge. It is great for work, I will probably buy another to carry all the time.

    Sent from Sky net.

    Amazon has them, they call it a 12 in 1 now. Must have dropped the earpick :). Ok I just opened mine. First impression is... not bad. Are you going to replace a multi tool with it? No. Is it something to add to a pen / or other random collection. Perhaps. Over all quality not bad. The tools don't seem that robust. More for a model builder or something along those lines. Overall not a bad $9 expense. Would I buy it again if lost mine. Indeed.

    Just found these little pencils at Office Depot. 2 bucks for a pack of 6. I may try one out for pocket carry.

    Hmmm... that grip pattern seems to be very popular with promotional companies. I just did a Google image search for "mini mechanical pencil" 4 of the first 12 hits look very similar to that. Would be curious how the "performance"/long term durability and size match the the Pilot G-2 Mini Mechanical Pencils.

    Didn't know about the pilots. From the looks of it, these wont last nearly as long as the Pilot. Probably the same pencil they use for promotional giveaways.

    How smooth are these? Do they use up ink pretty quickly?

    Very smooth writing and quick drying ink, without the ink bleeding if you pause while writing . I work in a call center and jot down notes with nearly every call, and have been using the same one for about 4 weeks. They have a clear window so the ink level is visible.
