Favorite Things: Ateleia Brass Pen

As far as note-taking is concerned I am decidedly old-school. It has been postulated that people retain information much more effectively when writing it down as opposed to typing, and I find that to be particularly true for me. The pen is mightier than the keyboard (yes, even a mechanical one).

I discovered the Pilot Hi-Tec-C during my senior year in high school, and it has been my weapon of choice ever since. I was loyal to the 0.3mm tip, and then promptly moved on to the 0.25 the moment I found out it exists. However with the plethora of form factors available here in Japan I still find myself wishing for something a bit more substantial, and that is why upon discovering the Ateleia brass pen I ordered one with very little hesitation.
