>>2288898 Lamy safari is good fountain pen if you are on budget or want a pen you can carry around everywhere and not worrying it gets stolen or something. If you want to spend around $100 you have a lot more of options. I don't have much experience but I believe Pilot pens should be pretty good. Even Glenn Vilppu has one. I have Parker Sonnet with gold plated nib - if you are looking for Parkers get one with 18k gold nib, it writes smoother. If you have +$500 it's going to be Montblanc, but that pen will last your whole life time. It might sound expensive but it's not really more expensive than a brand new smartphone so I don't think it's bad investment.
You'll also have to chooce your ink carefully - I clogged my lamy safari bad using wrong ink (dip pen ink). I was able to rescue it tho. Also when I bought my Parker Sonnet ($100 pen) brand new it was skipping some letters, like every tenth or so. I disassembled the pen, carefully rinsed the nib and feed. It started working perfectly after that. So sometimes you have to tinker with those a little bit.
I have no idea of good mechanical pencils but I have used Daler & Rowney hardcover sketchbook as journal / commonplace book.
I don't use fountain pens but maybe there's something I'm missing, but this sounds needlessly extravagant. It sounds like people who get fucking gold plated HDMI cables. Somebody says it's more functional as a reason to charge out the ass for it. That said, as I mentioned I know very little about fountain pens. Is there a proven benefit to getting a gold plated nib?
>>2289365 >It sounds like people who get fucking gold plated HDMI cables I for one, notice the gold plated shit on my mouse and gpu after took them out of book, wasn't even mentioned on the site I bought them from desu
>>2288898 >Fountain pen Anything decently priced should be alright. I have a Cross Aventura my brother got me years ago, works great. The cheap Sheafer fountain pens you see it art stores aren't worth buying, they clog pretty easy. >Mechanical pencil Pental Quicker Clicker/Graph Gear 500. >Notebook/journal I always go with Strathmore 400 series sketch pads. >>2288911 >>2288920 On the subject of ink, I have a bottle of Noodler's Bulletproof Black and it's pretty good. Despite the name, it's not completely waterproof so there's that.
>>2288911 Lamy Safari are bad. I own 2 and while they're excellent as an everyday pen, I'd rather take any BIC ballpoint or a gel pen for drawing, any day.
Fountain pens are bad for drawing in general unless you spend a ton of money on a flexible nib and you get a Japanese pen (the have finer nibs). That said there are special Japanese pens that mount disposable G-nibs, get one of those.
I love my Rotring 600 but pretty sure any mechanical pencil above 10$ is great.
The best notebook you can get is the one you make yourself. Get a small binder, good paper in bulk cut to size, and a paper punch. I use an old organizer and good 90gsm paper that takes ink well.
>>2292160 >That said there are special Japanese pens that mount disposable G-nibs, get one of those. Got a name or something? The only pen I know of that does that is the Ackerman Pump Pen, and that's not really of the sort you can carry around.
