Begun in 2008, it's unlikely that I'll regularly make entries to this blog, so do check my main site at

This blog is more likely to include posts of a political nature - and one that requires sisu on the part of many!

A Pencil, a treat...

It’s been a while since my last post, and it seems that so much has occurred since just on a month ago.

I won’t go into details here.

The purpose of this post is to reflect on the wonderful world of writing instruments – in this case a pencil crafted as a functional piece of art: the Pelikan Souverän pencil.

Pelikan Souverän Pencil

Though I really enjoy using a (fountain) pen, it is only on rare occasions that I actually need such: basically on the occasions when some document or other needs to be signed. A pencil, on the other hand, is something I use everyday to annotate reading, make separate notes, or simply jot down points I wish to later follow up on.

The MontBlanc equivalent is certainly really nice (and more expensive). The Pelikan, however, is simply exquisitely beautiful.
