    Writing Tool Discussions

    Hello,

    This would be a place to discuss various tools that we use/need in our lives. Could be anything, so as long as it is about tools.

    Here we go...

    There are several pens on the market that are being sold as disposable. I don't fancy that fact and would like to do something about it. The ones I'm referring feature a reservoir of ink but cannot be opened without a specific tool on which I have no idea what it is nor what is named.

    I'm looking for a tool that can unscrew the following ink system by using an indented tooth (the red part).

    There many videos on YouTube that show how this can be opened with pliers, but it's not worth it as they'll break easily.

    Thank you.

    Pencils only need to be sharpened every now and then. Solid alternative right there

    Also, this thread reminds me I need to get a new set of screwdrivers. My current one is nearly destroyed.

    Actually, I'm seriously thinking into moving to fountain pens. It's much more comfortable for those that write a lot, and cheaper in the long run. The only problem is that those EF (extra fine) nibs are very expensive, if you buy quality. I prefer a 0.3mm out of all line weights.

    This black pencil is a writing tool, I've had it since 1999 and I'd like to discuss that.

    At the moment i'm using a Pilot Hi-Tecpoint V5 refillable (https://www.pilotpen.eu/en/collectio...-fine-tip.html). It's a roller-ball pen, with a needle tip with a bib 0.5mm. At the beginning it writes as small as 0.3mm, but once the tip is worn-out it starts to increase to 0.5mm and over. Pressing very hard will wear the tip faster and also bend it, and once these are true, the pen will no longer write continuously. That's the queue to replace it.

    Refilling these is straightforward: they use a 1ml cartridge which can be bought, but is much cheaper to be refilled. To do this, just use a syringe and refill the cartridge again.

    So as long as you do not drop it (the tip will bend), or press hard, it will last you for years.
