Pens and Paper

Yeah, off topic as hell, but someone needs to throw you guys a curveball every now and then.

Do you have a favorite pen/pencil type/style? If you're buying journals, are you picky?

I like fountain pens, and someday, I'll pick up some Mont Blanc and Waterman fountains, but in the meantime, I'm OK with disposable Pilot Varsity and the occasional upgrade.

I also am picky about my journals. I like the Moleskine/Piccadilly graph paper journals, and Ive been known to buy MiquelRius graph ring notes by the case.

Anybody else that picky?

I just use regular notebooks for my writing.

I used a Zebra v-301 fountain pen for a month or so at the start of the year, really liked it, but the ink cartridges didn't last long. I'm back to using Pilot G-2's, sort of my go-to pen. I prefer the 07 but for some reason bought a pack of 05's a while back. Think they're good pens, the link flows smoothly (occasionally a problem with the zebra fountain) and lasts a long time.

Retro 1951 makes some nice pens that aren't crazy expensive. They have fountains, but i like the Tornado. Great form, feel, and flow. My wife actually owns a paper store (@shindigpaperie on twitter and Instagram) so I can geek out if you really want me to. I will say that there is a very nice pen store in KC.

There was a day when I wore Rolex and wrote with Monte Blanc. I don't do that any longer but a MB is a very smooth writing utensil. No doubt about that.

NICE!

The Zebra Gel Pen is one of my favorites along with my Gold Cross pen I've had for around 20 years plus a hand made pen I bought at an art show in Mountain View CA 15 years ago.

I always select a medium point black ink Cross compatible for refills
