The annual cherry blossom season is finally the time when the Somei Yoshino cherry blossoms bloom and the cherry blossoms in the city are at their most vigorous.
At the same time, stationery manufacturers have already prepared various “cherry blossom limited” for the cherry blossom season, and stationery stores have also carefully decorated the “cherry blossom season counter”, which is a unique scenery.
■The new “cherry blossom season” counter
Zhou Zhijun has recently gone to “
The long-established brand “Hyakuin Stationery Museum” and Chenguang’s Kugi Miscellaneous Goods Club
, to explore what is worth buying during the cherry blossom season!
PART1 Good stationery all over the world
At this time of year, Baixin will create a counter for the cherry blossom season, and the pink clouds are very beautiful. What are the cherry blossom editions this year?
The most noteworthy of this year is:
Parkway’s cherry blossom limited set
。 According to the clerk, it sold quite well, and the version of cherry blossom powder has been sold out, leaving only cherry blossom blue.
Wycombe Abbey XL is Parker’s new entry-level fountain pen in recent years, allowing you to feel Parker’s quality at a relatively low price, with exquisite appearance and smooth writing. The cherry blossom limited edition is made of metal, and the gradient color around the body is sweet but not greasy, and it is shiny. It is also possible to dual-use fountain pens and ballpoint pens by replacing the refill and nib.
The price is more than 300 yuan, and many elders give it as a gift to the juniors, probably because of Parker’s “noodles”!

Similar to a set –
Baile 78G fountain pen Italian style series
, containing pens, ink absorbers and a box painted with Italian landscapes, priced at 157 yuan. There are colors such as tender green, olive green, blue gray, etc., and Venetian pink is of course the most suitable nowadays.
As one of the most famous “pens within 100 yuan”, Baile 78G is a very safe choice for gifts. Its pen body looks like metal, but it is actually a resin and is very light to use. But this is not a flaw – light enough to facilitate students to write for long periods of time.
The 78G has another feature – its cap is unscrewed rather than plugged in. It is slightly inconvenient to use, but it can greatly avoid ink leakage, so you can carry it around.
After talking about the gift box, I recommend two more “gadgets” that are suitable for buying for yourself.
The first paragraph is
Shide Building telescopic rubber cherry blossom limited model
。 Who would have thought that a century-old stationery brand from Germany would also launch a “cherry blossom limited”? Moreover, it is not only pink, but also has a cherry blossom pattern on the shell, which makes it look very standard.
As a telescopic eraser, its biggest advantage is that it can be used until the last minute. Its replacement core is replaceable, has the characteristics of less dust and does not contain PVC. The price is 16 yuan.
The second paragraph is
Dragonfly AIR silent correction with cherry blossom pink
, this series of correction belts have many colors, similar pink, lavender purple, cherry blossom pink, etc., the color of cherry blossom pink is lighter than pink, giving people a very fresh feeling.
Although it looks like an ordinary correction tape from the outside, it is not an ordinary correction tape, and it is named for the smooth and silent operation like air, and some people even comment that it is “the best correction tape that has ever been used”. The price is 12.8 yuan.
To be honest, if cherry blossom season stationery only has appearance and no function, it is a very boring IQ tax. For conscientious products, new design, thoughtful jun to say: “buy it”!
PART2 New domestic products worth buying
In the era of “national tide”, there are more and more domestic stationery worthy of praise.
Handbook products, there is
Cherry blossoms and paper tape for lovers of letters
, and washi letterhead, which can be called an “upgraded three-dimensional greeting card”.
Chenguang even launched a large number of stationery and daily necessities in one go this year, and a table could not fit. Baixin brought a few of them, and at the Kugi Miscellaneous Goods Society, a variety of gel pens, pencils, handbooks, and glasses were dazzling.
■The counter of Kugi Miscellaneous Goods Club
Thoughtful Jun is more curious – so many limited stationery, which one is more useful? Let’s start with that
S1 and T1
, the former is a relatively ordinary press-type gel pen, 0.5 thickness. The latter is a more special ST pyramid pen, push-to-press, 0.38 thickness.
■S1 on the left and T1 on the right
ST nibs are rare, which makes Thoughtful Jun can’t help but be a little surprised. When I tried it, the writing was not stuck, but unfortunately the quick-drying effect was a little poor, which was inferior to the “big prize” model, which was also an ST nib. The disadvantage is that the first stroke when writing is a bit unsmooth.
There is also a more special kind of pen
3 times the density material
, it is characterized by being very, very heavy, holding in the hand as if glued to the hand, very stable. Of course, it will be tiring to write for a long time, especially the press section.

What Thoughtful Jun was most looking forward to was this one
Flower-shaped colored lead
。 In the previous two years, the Japan Stationery Awards had a winning product, which featured a beautiful flower cut with a sharpener in the shape of petals.
The results were disappointing. Use the pencil sharpener that comes with the suit to cut the colored lead in the suit, and break it while cutting, making people feel that “the colorful clouds are easy to scatter and the glass is brittle”. I wonder what god man can use to cut flowers? From another angle, it is also the beauty of falling flowers.
Finally, Zhou Zhijun will share with you several “cherry blossom season limited” that cannot be seen in stationery stores, and wash your eyes together!
Sailor × PLUS Night Sakura limited set
Price: 23,000 yen + tax
Moleskine 2021 Sakura Limited Notebook
Price: 298 yuan
Bande cherry blossom series sticker tape
Price: 440 yen
The beautiful bande flower-shaped tape, there are new products in the cherry blossom season! There are three models: Sakura, Yae Sakura, and Somei Yoshino Sakura, and the first two were sold out soon after their release.

Like the previous petal tape, one tape contains 200 petals, which can be torn off one by one to form a pattern. It is possible to decorate the phone case ↓
You can also stick it into a whole wall ↓
