Fountain pen penmanship pen black axis PFP50RBEF (japan import)
Offered by JNS JAPAN STORE
Price: £6.29

5.0 out of 5 stars Cheap but oh so very cheerful !, 20 Sep 2014
Basic fountain pen at a bargain price, yet a great deal of thought has gone into the design, and the nib writes superbly. All rounded lines, changing to a smooth triangular shape where you grip the pen, and the threaded rounded cap with two little red 'ears' to stop it rolling, contribute to a very pleasing overall appearance. Uses Pilot IC50 cartridges (one black supplied in the package) and the EF nib is very fine indeed compared to European grading, yet writes so smoothly with no skipping or drying up. The tightly fitting screwed cap helps in preventing the nib drying up when not in use, and posts securely to give extra length and weight when writing. There is no clip, but the pen drops easily into a shirt pocket and is easily retrieved.
Ideal for making notes or equally for developing handwriting skills, I still get real pleasure from writing with a fountain pen rather than a biro and would not hesitate to recommend this delightful little pen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kaweco brown ink, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Good quality ink in short international cartridges that flows well and is coloured a rich brown that looks really good on the page - a change from standard blue or black without having to go too bright !
Very pleased with these and will definitely order again

Reasonably strong plastic trouser/skirt hangers with adjustable clips that can be moved along the bar. Good price and they do the job well - very pleased with these

5.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Lovely little writer from Kaweco, who have been making well designed quality pens for years. Looks good in a dark blue plastic with checkerboard effect on the cap. The fine nib is very smooth to write with, without dumping too much ink onto the paper. Even for someone with big hands, it is comfortable to hold and use unposted, but add the large cap to the barrel and it feels much more like a full-size pen. You will have to buy a pocket clip separately if you need one - I find the pen drops neatly into a shirt pocket without one.
Now if only the barrel was a tiny bit longer to take a full-size cartridge then this would be just about perfect !

4.0 out of 5 stars Guardian angels ? - I don't think so !, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Familiar Angels (Kindle Edition)
A refreshing take on the political landscape, this time involving angels and demons fighting, and sometimes collaborating (!), to save the life and mortal soul of one of Life's losers.
Very well characterised, you feel at the same time sympathy for, but equally exasperation at the lead subject, as he lumbers from abject humiliation to near-disaster. Great and imaginative use of vocabulary and language, but perhaps sometimes a little over-use when 'less would been more'.
Good twist at the end as all the pieces finally come together, and I did enjoy this debut novel - more please, Peter !

3.0 out of 5 stars Gaffer tape, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Generic silver (not Rhino branded and not white, by the way) gaffer tape that is strong enough and sticky enough for most light household jobs. Have also used as heavy duty parcel tape and it stays stuck being handled in the post. Smooth surface, but you can see the weave of the cotton in it, and a reasonable buy at this price.

4.0 out of 5 stars Flax seed oil capsules, 14 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Palatable source of flax oil containing a good percentage of omega-3 with its cardio-protective properties, and an alternative to burping up fish all day like with some high strength cod liver oil capsules I have tried in the past. Very clean high strength product with no sugars or other additives, and I am pleased with these - will happily order again, even though they are quite expensive

2.0 out of 5 stars Not so pure raspberry ketone, 14 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Labelled as '60 days supply' but the instructions say take two a day so that's 30 days worth by my maths. Plenty of caffeine in the list of (non-vegetarian) ingredients and very little raspberry. Unpleasant sensation (dry mouth, some dizziness) after taking them, and I spent a couple of mornings burping up raspberry before sense got the better of me and I stopped and put the rest in the bin, which is the best place for them I reckon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Little can of meaty treats, 14 Sep 2014
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
75g resealable 'can' of very meaty smelling strips (about 4x1cm), that are soft enough to break into smaller pieces to make them go further. No long list of additives on the ingredient list either, with 60% pork, rice and chicken liver to the fore. The dog loves them, and I would happily order more
