Extra Staples is a series of posts where I share various links I find interesting. It is not on any regular schedule, and the links can be old or new. For more frequent updates from me, I can be found on Instagram and Twitter, under the same moniker, Threestaples.

Another informative post from Andrew on one of the prettiest edition of Field Notes ever made. Polka-dotted inner covers!
Review: Pilot Murex — nib & ink
Shopping for vintage fountain pens seems so daunting but boy do the Murex look mighty tempting, and Matthew’s gorgeous shots don’t help either.
Rollbahn 15th Anniversary - ロルバーン15周年記念特設サイト
You might remember my love of Delfonics Rollbahn notebooks from this post. If you also like these notebooks, then you might want to know that Rollbahn is celebrating their 15th anniversary with some special exhibits and limited edition items. The special exhibit at their Shibuya, Tokyo location has ended already (on the same day Parco, the department store in which it is located, closed for renovation) but the one at their Osaka location just started. So if you’re in the area before September 20th.. you’re a lucky duck. It looks like you can customize your own Rollbahn notebooks at the exhibit with your choice of spiral color and band color, too. Even if you’ll be nowhere close to Osaka, the anniversary website is still worth a visit, for browsing their archive of past limited editions and peeking inside notable Rollbahn users’ notebooks. Also, see pictures from the exhibits here:

Things I tried recently (and liked)
Hinodewashi Matomaru-kun Eraser (pictured at the top)
This eraser really does clump the eraser shavings neatly together, as its name promises (matomaru means to gather), and it feels very soft and spring-y, just the way I like my erasers to feel. It erases very well.
