Other writing/drawing stuff
|Deleter||Free Pen holder||Use it for dip nibs and even some lino carving cutter heads haha|
|Tachikawa||Nikko G||For inks that don't go in my fountain pens|
|Pentel||Energel Infree 0.5||Fast drying ink, apparently|
|Pentel||Fude pocket brush pen and Fude brush pen||I've had these forever...|
|Uni||Kuru Toga mechanical pencil 0.5mm||Sharp point forever!|
|Pilot||Color Eno 0.7mm||Exclusively for erasable blue lead...|
|Stabilo||Left Right mechanical pencil 2mm||For fattier lead|
|Prismacolor||Travel sharpener||Weirdest stubby cigar shape but it works and keeps shavings contained. Inside looks like a magnesium Kum sharpener|
|Prismacolor||Col Erase in various colours (terra cotta, light green, scarlet red, white, non-photo blue)||TBH these are only marginally more erasable, so still looking for better ones|
I have so much more than this but this is...the top of the pile.
Book and zine-making
|Olfa||Small stationery cutter||Cut all the paper...|
|Lineco||Bone folder||Fold and score all the zines/books!|
|Durodex||200-DX stack cutter||Wai did the research on this and recommended!|
|Max||HD-10V 2-way stapler||Industrial design genius, SOOO much better than those huge and heavy long-arm staplers (if your zines are small)|
|Gruschwitz||Bookbinding no. 30/3 linen thread||I just switched to this from Lineco bookbinding thread (way more affordable)...|
|Philips||Sonicare BreathRx tongue scaper||Life changing!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|Backnife||Ceramic utility knife||Super slim, light, and easy to carry for the times where you need to cut something (also Canadian-owned!)|
|OK-Bon||Compression wraps||Magical fabric that endlessly self adheres, but is soft. I use a thin wrap to put around a wrist brace splint for wrist stabilization|
