Review: Lihit Lab Hinemo Wide Open Pen Pouch


I'm always on the lookout for interesting looking pen cases/pouches.

I have so much stuff in my bag recently that I've been looking at pen pouch to store some loose items. 

This pen pouch from Lihit Lab's Hinemo line looked interesting and I really like the colour. 

This pouch comes in 2 sizes, I bought the smaller version and it claims to be able to fit around 20 pens that are 15cm or shorter (we'll test this below) 

The dimensions are 200 x 95mm and there's a big zip going across the case diagonally. 

It's made of a canvas called 'Fuji Kinbai' which is woven in Japan. 

The diagonally placed zip is it's main feature, it slides easily and without getting stuck. 

The pouch opens nice and wide and it's very spacious inside. 

As a bonus, the yellow canvas matches my yellow Delfonics pouch pretty well. 

I decided to test the 20 pen claim, here are 20 random pens I pulled from my desk. 

Only 17 fit, but as some pens are wider than normal pens, it's totally understandable. 
17 is still very impressive! 

At the moment, I only keep a few pens, correction tape, a paper clip and mini swiss army knife in my pouch. 

To conclude, it doesn't look bulky, the yellow makes it easy to spot and it holds quite a few things. 

In my opinion, this is a good pouch for your EDC. 

What do you think, is this the pouch for you?

Review: DECO RUSH Wide 10mm Tape 2022 Collection

A while ago, we reviewed the Deco Rush renewal series [here] and today we are going to review the 2022 new WIDE TAPE collection ^^!

There are 8 new designs
And we picked up 3 of them to review!

Note: These new tapes are not limited edition and are WIDE [aka 10mm width]

Here's how they look like

These new designs are very versatile and look good on their own or used together.

They also work well with previous releases such as the deco rush renewal series or the mizutama series.

 Have you tried them out? What do you think?

Review: Kokuyo ME Mechnical Pencil

A good mechanical pencil composes of 2 things, a good holder and good pencil lead. 

I reckon you get what you pay for when it comes to mechanical pencils. 

The mechanical pencil from Kokuyo's ME range of stationery is decently priced but it has a feature that really caught my eye. 

It's the eraser at the end of the pencil. 

An eraser at the end of a mechanical pencil is not new but the Kokuyo ME one is retractable and it's a decent sized too. 

First up, I tested the pencil lead. It's really smooth to write with and doesn't break easily, which can sometimes be a problem with cheaper pencil lead. 

I tested the eraser next. 

To retract it, you twist the top until your preferred amount of eraser has been retracted. 
The eraser works really well too. Much better than any other eraser that I've found attached to a mechanical pencil.

It reminds me of a full size retractable eraser. 

If you are in the market for a new mechanical pencil and don't want to be carrying a separate eraser, I think this is a great pencil to buy. (I haven't looked into the eraser refills yet unfortunately)

Definitely get the Kokuyo pencil lead too, it's buttery smooth to write with and would be great for drawing as well. It's a great pencil to travel with too.
