Baron Fig gets to the point with new Squire Click ballpoint pen

We’re no stranger to Baron Fig ’round these parts; I’ve reviewed the Confidant Hardcover Notebook, the Vanguard Softcover Notebook, and the Squire Rollerball Pen. Although I really like Baron Fig’s notebooks, I’m a bit obsessed with the Squire Rollerball Pen. Its just-right length, balanced weight, ergonomic shape and finish, and smooth writing tip all contribute …

ACME Studios Eco Pen doesn’t add to the landfill

I like using those clear barrel disposable pens.  They’re cheap, and you can always keep several around in case you misplace one, but the downside is that the plastic barrel is going to hang around in a landfill for a long time.  ACME Studios has developed some plastic barrel pens that will break down in …

The original fidget toy gets a makeover

Before fidget spinning was a worldwide phenomenon, people dealt with stress by using other methods that did not include a multi-colored 3-pronged spinner purchased from the gas station checkout line. Back in the day, we used ordinary clicky ink pens to fidget (and annoy our coworkers). If you miss those simpler times, you will rejoice …

Never lose your nice pen again, thanks to Cross and TrackR

I love beautiful writing implements, and I’ve collected a few over the years.  I’ve sadly lost a couple over the years, too.  There are a variety of Bluetooth trackers on the market these days to help you keep up with your valuables, but you can’t exactly hang a fob on your ballpoint pen.  But now, …

Baron Fig Squire rollerball pen review

As with many of us Gadgeteers, most especially our fearless Gadgeteer-in-Chief, Julie, I like writing implements of all kinds, but I really like pens.

Did you know that there’s a Fisher Space Pen for your backpack?

Fisher Space Pens haven’t been on my radar for awhile, but I happened to see an image of one on Pinterest the other day that reminded me of an updated version of the Inka Pen that I reviewed over 10 years ago. So I clicked over to the Fisher Space Pen site and was greeted …

The Cuttlelola Dotspen lets you stipple without wrist strain

I bet you clicked through just to find out what stippling is didn’t you? If you’re not an artist, you probably haven’t heard of the term. Stippling is an art technique that is achieved by drawing dots. LOTS of dots. Thousands of dots. Maybe millions of dots. You get the idea. Using an ordinary pen …
