Pen Stories

I know I should not be buying ‪ pens‬ until next week, but I found ‪‎Zig‬ ‪Kuretake‬ ‪ ‎Cocoiro‬ letter pen in SUNSET ORANGE, and I could not let her go! Now that my bright ‪letter pens‬ are complete, I can now finally take a breather.

Faber-Castell PITT Artist Pen, You Disappoint Me

This is a craze in the bullet journal community where I am a member. Everyone is recommending this because this does not bleed or ghost through their Moleskine or Leuchtturm1917 (another hype which I cannot understand and will write about later), so the curious George in me wants to try it because it sounds fancy. Artist pen. Chos! Even if my drawing skills are limited to doodles of butterflies and flowers, but if drawn by a fancy pen, I will be happy with it. I am always happy with my doodles, teehee!
So, off I went to National Bookstore and asked the staff if they have Faber Castell PITT artist pen in black with a smug expression on my face because, hey, not everyone knows that. Or so I think. :-p But when I had it in my hands, meh. The body is just made of plastic, like my Faber Castell Broadpens. I was expecting something fancy. I tried them, and meh. I was not impressed with the ink quality. It writes just like Unipen Technical Fineliners, but the latter is waaaaay much better and cheaper. One PITT artist pen costs 109 pesos!
So, I just opted to buy two Pilot Drawing Pens in 0.2 and 0.3 to compensate my disappointment with PITT. Just because something is a hype does that mean that it is good already. Maybe, for some it is the best already since they have limited pen choices, but next time, I would rather test and try it myself before jumping into their bandwagon.
