I'm  not gonna lie: writing instruments hold a special place in my heart, and they always have. In high school I cranked through mechanical pencils on sale in the Grand & Toy flyer like you wouldn't believe, a phase I went through again a couple of years ago. I like fountain pens more than any but a non-professional writer should. This means this struck a chord with me when it hit my feed. Given that I have a writing slate that my Grandmother learned to write on, it's surprising that I haven't ordered any of this chalk yet.
