Urban Wrist – iZip iPad Wallet
Custom Laser Engraving is Offered
I first heard of Urban Wrist on Instagram. I saw a picture of an iPad case in leather that I had initially thought was an “This Is Ground” Mod-Mini. (http://thisisground.com/collections/mod) Upon close inspection I quickly discovered it was not. After some questions on Instagram were answered, I placed my order. Read the rest of this entry »
The OHTO Dude
The OHTO Dude
I would like to thank Jetpens.com for making this review possible.
The OHTO Dude is a six sided aluminum pen that looks a bit understated and industrial. The clip looks to be high polished steel that is tight but still springy. The barrel end is rounded compared to the hexagonal main portion. The finials are highly polished and reflective on both ends. Read the rest of this entry »
Today I have a couple of links to KickStarter campaigns that are pretty cool.
The first is by David Frieslander out of the UK. It is a pen rest called “The Pen Rest”. It is a unique stackable design that can grow with your collection or with your bank balance, depending on how you look at it. They are made of anodized aluminum and when you get a few of these going , look super cool. If you need a place to rest your weary pen, look into this one.
The next campaign is for a cursive learning project by Linda Shrewsbury called “Cursive Logic”. I am lucky enough to live in a state that refuses to accept the Common Core Standards initiative. That is a story for another time and place. All my daughters were taught cursive writing. My youngest probably has the most interest in it as she asks me often how to do certain letters “fancier”. Cursive Logic aims to teach cursive writing in a fast and easy to learn method developed by Linda and is even endorsed by a neuroscientist. You must hurry on this one as there is only 8 days left!

Inktronics Examines the OHTO Rook
A thank you goes out to the good folks at Jetpens.com for providing this pen for review.
The OHTO Rook is a pen I have watched for some time. I became obsessed with small form factor pens sometime around 2012 when I reviewed the Kaweco Liliput. That being said, there were a couple of things that bothered me about the Liliput. One was it did not have a clip and the other, was it had an annoyingly long amount of threads on the cap that made posting and taking the cap off somewhat of a chore. Read the rest of this entry »
