Pens Pens Pens

Earlier this month I put an item on Twitter about favorite pens and quickly received many fine replies. Here is the list with some subsequent additions. I have also given the names of those making the recommendations.

  • Cross pens; Jetstream Uniballs (John Ballard)
  • Namiki Falcon; Kaweco; Pelikan 3776 in fine point (Julian Summerhayes)
  • Pilot Precise V5 extra fine retractable roller ball (Stephen Landry)
  • Parker Jotter refilled with Quink Gel ink; Sharpie's Super Time Tip (Nelson Howard)
  • Uniball Signo 207 (Kurt Harden)
  • Pilot Aeroball (Joel Engel)
  • Aegir (Rick Georges)
  • Pilot G-2; Bic Gel-ocity medium; Kaweco; Pilot Metropolitan ballpoint (Michael Wade)
[Update: I corrected my mistake in the reference from Quick Gel ink to Quink Gel ink.]

Thanks for the kind mention. I've way too many pens but then again, all of them, even the slightly crappy ones, bring me joy.

Best wishes

You are most welcome. Pens are indeed a source of joy that, in my view, cannot be matched by pencils.

Best wishes,
