What's in My Pencil Case?

What?s in Daniel Ho?s Pencil Case? For the office supply fetish geek that asked what's in my pencil case, here it is. Funny request as I was just talking to Fasal M. about this over email.

This is what I use to do all my typical work on analogue media. None of the stuff I carry around is particularly fancy, but they do their jobs well:

- Faber-Castell "Perfect Pencil" (this I'd love in the sterling silver version, but the plastic one works beautifully) - Parker Sonnet Fountain Pen with medium nib and Aurora black ink. Discontinued pattern in sterling plate. - Caran d'Ache Ecridor Ballpoint Pen in "Retro" pattern...when I got it, I don't think it was called "Retro". Hmm...must be getting old. - Faber-Castell E-Motion Mechanical Pencil in pear wood. The lead is 1.4mm thick, and the body is nicely shaped and easy to hold. - Brass Pencil Sharpener for standard sized pencils - Small Swedish Pen Knife in sterling (hidden under fat pencil) - Bone Folder - 3M Post-It note pad
