| Lamy fountain pen

Writing English and writing Chinese are fundamentally two different things. The nibs of European and American pens are mostly rounded and smooth, with uniform lines and smooth watering. The Latin letters are dignified and gentle. But Hanzi is a square character, and each stroke has its own priority. Some murals are very short, and there are quite high requirements for the fineness of the pen tip. A smooth nib cannot write with a stroke, not absolutely impossible, but it is difficult to write. Without a stroke, the characters will lose their spirit. Moreover, the characters written by the EF nib are thick. Most people who like Lamy pens probably do not use pens for daily writing of Chinese characters.

| hand account

In fact, there are quite a lot of functions, such as diary, schedule, plan, address book, travel record and other knowledge records. Keeping a notebook is a very positive behavior. However, many people use their notebooks for their notebooks. All kinds of pens, hole punches, lace tapes, stickers, etc., spend more time on the notebook than studying. I really want to ask you what is the purpose of keeping a journal in the first place. Is it really to improve efficiency or to deceive yourself by getting a good-looking journal?

| handmade wallet

The materials used in handmade wallets are good, at least not bad (if you buy a handmade wallet worth tens of yuan, I didn’t say that), but the craftsmanship is uneven. There are hundreds of thousands of domestic handmade leather goods. Few of them can be regarded as “craftsmen”, most of them can be regarded as “enthusiasts” at most, and even saying that they are “suture lovers” does not demean them. Most of the handmade wallets are very ordinary and not as exquisite as imagined. Leather goods production itself is an extremely tedious and boring job, and many handmade leather goods practitioners use this as a sentiment and selling point to fool consumers. There are even leather goods advertised as handmade, which are only mass-sewn products of small workshops. Regardless of design, production process, and even production equipment, they are not as good as regular manufacturers. It is precisely because of these that many handmade wallets may not feel as good as Taobao’s. cheap stuff. Of course, if you meet a real “craftsman”, then the price of the wallet they make is definitely not cheap, and it can’t be done with a few hundred dollars.

wax seal

It is estimated that 99% of people will throw it in the corner to eat ashes after they buy it home and use it once. They need special wax, which is time-consuming and labor-intensive. Of course, it’s not completely useful. It’s quite special to see someone use it to seal invitations.

It’s not that these things are useless to everyone, but at least they are not very useful to most people, and the probability of eating ashes is relatively high. Think clearly before buying, don’t buy for vanity.
