Pilot G2 + Mont Blanc Ink Refill = Cheap, Amazing Pen [Wired]

As noted in the article, this has been around for a while but it was only when Wired posted the story last week that I finally sat down and tried it….Wow! I love this mutant pen. I’ve been using it for a week now and it is perfectly weighted and the ink is, well, delicious.

Check out the Instructables video on Wired: Pilot G2 + Mont Blanc Ink Refill

Unusual Office Supplies

I was reading the wonderful Office Supply Geek blog the other day and came across his review of a battery operated eraser. I discovered we carry an uber-powerful model, the Koh-i-noor  Rechargeable Eraser (KOHE1200) and it got me wondering what other unusual products we carry. How about a left-handed notebook?

The notebook levels the playing field…at least until you start writing on the back of the first page.
