  1. In spite of the pen's flimsy construction and a plethora of shortcomings, and the nib on my light grey one came twisted off kilter to boot, inexplicably it's a pleasure to write with this pen. I love the look of the tiny wrap-around nib, which makes this look more like a "technical pen" than a regular fountain pen, and the feel and precision it delivers is superb. It's a standard-priced Daiso item, it's awfully cheap — in price as well as overall product quality — and the converter you fit on it (if you choose to do so) will probably cost you more than the pen itself. I have no idea how eff

    Daiso Preppy-wannabe pens colour range

    From the album: Chinese pens

    These fountain pens are Daiso's answer to the Platinum Preppy, with the clear, lightly coloured pen bodies and spring-loaded inner caps. Unlike the Chinese-made Platinum Riviere PTR-200, which Daiso also sells, they are not co-branded. These pens started appearing, here in Sydney, late in August 2020. I've only ever seen them in one store in the four months since, even though there are three Daiso stores within walking distance of each other. My first impressions are that these pens are of much better product quality than the PTR-200. The nib width grade is not stated anywhere, eit
  3. From the album: Odds and ends

    Back in September 2020, I was shopping in Daiso (and looked in Miniso, too, but it never seems to have anything suitable, and its prices are not as cheap) for some ink storage solution components, and came across this product — as well the 4 Cube Case, which is sized slightly differently. I measured both products, and this one seemed to be a good fit for 60ml bottles of Platinum ink, if I decide to discard their cardboard retail boxes but still want to stack them high in storage. At the time, the store had ample stock of both products, so I figured I wasn't in a hurry to decide or

  5. From the album: Paper products

    A page from (still) my favourite A7 notepad product, originally reviewed here: I prefer this to the Maruman m.memo DMP-A7 notepad (which I also bought from Daiso, in spite of it not being a Daiso-branded product) and the Bloc Rhodia No.11 notepad (which Daiso doesn't sell, but is otherwise more widely available, at least here in Australia).

    Daiso Riviere Ptr-200

    The Riviere PTR-200 is a cheap pen. That should set the tone for this review. I got it at Daiso some 2 years ago. It was 2 CAD (+ tax ). Others at the time said it was 1.50 USD. Visually, it's a slender plastic pen with a snap cap. The cream plastic is stainable and the body lettering doesn't line up with the nib. But these are minor cosmetic quibbles and this is a cheap pen. More importantly, I have no ergonomic complaints. It's not slippery, it's not unbalanced (since it's so light), it has no sharp edges and it's a good length for most hands. The best part is clearly the nib. It's s
  7. Buying from Daiso these days is trickier than it used to be. Some items are no longer sold at the headline (and baseline) price that serves as the primary drawcard to get prospective customers browsing, and I'd hazard a guess that most of the items in the store are not made in Japan. Nevertheless, when I have some time to kill, I pop in and look for products that are made in Japan and offered at the brand's baseline price. I picked up one of the B7-sized, 7mm-ruled memo pad in the D-98 series — which, if I'm not mistaken, covers different sizes of the same make — the other day to give it a w
  8. Here it is... a somewhat short review, with rather a lot of pics to tell the story. Rushing round Daiso, on the way out, noticed something somewhat familiar on the way to the checkout, snagged it for leisurely consideration later... Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you, the Rosso Bianco! Nice sturdy matte black cardboard box. It says 'RB' for Rosso Bianco on the clip, see! And Rosso Bianco on the band! But wait... here's one I prepared earlier...! Twins! Comes with a slim cartridge, black, not b-b as it says on the box, of a variety I've never seen before. Might I gue
  9. N.B. This is neither intended nor written as a review of the paper product. I remember reading somewhere that Daiso's 'Complete' range of notebooks made in Indonesia is sufficiently fountain pen friendly. From what I've seen, my conclusion is no, it isn't — in spite of exhibiting good resistance to feathering — and thus a proper review (by me anyway) is not warranted.
  10. Recently I've suckered myself into buying a bunch of different A7 sized notepads that attracted my attention simply by being made in Japan, France or Germany, and offered at 'reasonable' prices in retail stores here. Personally I find A7 to be an awkward and almost useless size, because I have trouble writing decently and with a light hand close to (say, within a margin of 8mm to 10mm from) the right-hand and bottom edges of any notepad, and of course the margin-to-useful-writing-area ratio on an A7 notepad is quite significant. However, it's probably not a bad way to test out certain papers.
  11. I picked up a Daiso Rakugaki A5 Sketch Pad while I was in the store yesterday. I'd strongly advise not writing on the pages of one with a fountain pen.
  12. Before Thanksgiving, I googled Daiso paper and Fountain Pen reviews - there are no Daisos in Portland, and I was going to the land of the many Daisos (4 within easy driving distance of relatives). This led me to an unexpected hobby, thanks to TMLee's very detailed review and a lurking bombshell of a link that led me to his "355 Mini" journals. https://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/314318-the-355-mini An hour later, I emerged from the rabbit hole, hooked! I hauled as many notebooks home as I could (note: there were witnesses, some restraint was displayed). Combined with an old Th
  13. Hello all! So I ran across this pen at Daiso in Korea for 3,000 won. (about $2.50) It looked interesting, and came with cartridges, two nibs (f open & ef covered) and a converter. It looked pretty interesting, like a Lamy Safari knockoff, so I picked it up. The nib seems really nice, but I can't for the life of me figure out what brand it is. The only markings are imprints that say "point&line" on the clip and the nib. I've never heard of a fountain pen brand with that name. I'm not an expert, though, just a casual user. Direct comparison with Lamy Safari. The Safari lid is a
  14. Daiso stationery products are all designed in Japan, but aren't all make there. The very best of their paper products, like the Kraft-bound notebooks, are made in Japan, and that paper is truly delightful. This note, however, is about the A4 loose-leaf binder refills. They come in a pack of 70 sheets, lined and unlined. The lined version is spaced at 60 mm, suitable for those, like me, with small handwriting and fine nibs. Others may wish to use the unlined version and either print their own lines or use a guide sheet. The paper seems to be about 70gsm, and is well-behaved with most inks.
  15. Heya FPN! At Daiso (a Japanese $1.50 store), I came across this beautiful red fountain pen for $5 and immediately sprung for it. In fact, my hand shot forward on its own. It has "Rosso Bianco" stamped on the cap ring and nib. I searched online and found a Reddit page posted about five days ago and found out that this is a rebranded Jinhao x750, hence why I posted this in the Chinese forum subsection. Here's the link: https://www.reddit.com/r/fountainpens/comments/6aaqs3/i_cant_find_a_review_on_the_rosso_bianco_pen_so/ I've done a small modification to the pen before even trying the cart
