All Good Things

You may have noticed a slow down in publishing articles and approving comments over the last few weeks, well that’s because I’ve been away on holiday and the blog has been on auto-pilot for most of the time. All good things have to come to an end, and I’m back home now, so normal transmission should resume shortly.

In the past I have taken suitable mechanical pencils away on holiday, but this time I decided to go old school, really old school - wooden pencil and penknife. Seeing I was traveling overseas to distant lands I thought a Viking 400 Skioldungen #2 would be a suitable choice, Swiss army knife for sharpening and an MD notebook to write in. More on the notebook in the future.

Of course one cannot journey to foreign lands and not obtain a new mechanical pencil. Choices were limited in my touristy part of the world, so it was something like the best of a bad lot.

You took a penknife overseas? On an airplane?

That was my first reaction too. I don't know how you managed to do that.

It would seem that brutal Vikings and KIWIs can get away with anything :-) Welcome back to the blogosphere.

Ahhh, the penknife was checked baggage not cabin carry-on baggage.

At least you took some graphite with you! Maybe next time you should consider a "Faber-Castell Perfect Pencil" instead.
Also, inspite of being on the lower end of the scale UNI Clifters are nice, i think i have all the colors available (black, green, blue, orange and pink), i bought them for the colection not for using purposes though, i tried them and they are of decent quality the pocket clip design is great it can be opened 7mm wide, a nice looking pencil for school, home and office use.

Welcome back,
