What types of pens do you use on the daily basis? I use PDA/ball point combo pen, wacoms, Cross pens, and PDA styluses (for writing on PDA, not on paper).

Anything by Montblanc. I have several around my desk.

Fountain pen, roller ball, ballpoint, pencil even a highlighter.

Great pens, good quality and last forever!



And so it goes......

In the time-honored MR tradition, I went over-board. I looked around for the picture forums and I have not seen the pictures of your pens/writing equipment so far. This thread was not meant for those plastic BIC pens and similar ones you can buy by bulk.

They won't let me near anything else.

If your only allowed 3 crayons, I'd ditch the green and go for a blue one!

Top to bottom:

Pentel Sign Writer felt tip
Groovy two ended felt tips
Chinagraph pencils
Whsmith's own colouring pencils (water soluble)
Good old school pencils
Parker Gel pen.

I actually really like wax crayons for sketching, but they must be Crayola. :cool:

I like the idea of this thread. Oh, and YS - please post more pictures of your desk (those ACDs look gorgeous).

My pen, a LAMY something. Guess why I chose the aluminim version :cool:

When I have to use a pen for filling out a form or signing something, it's a plain old blue Bic Crystal pen. Otherwise, I use pencils exclusively, and the only brand that I'll buy is Staedtler. :)

Green (or teal) Uniball Vision.

Nice, non-scary grading pen.

I wish I could take macros, but my Exilim is no good... plus I know squat about photography.

I use a Montblanc Meisterstuck rollerball and mechanical pencil pretty much on a daily basis. I also have a fountain pen from the same series, but never use it. If anybody is interested in pictures, I might be bothered to grab my camera and take some photos :rolleyes:

I just use free company pens. I take about 20 to last me for a couple of months

Folks, it seems this thread can be a good show case for a macro shot. I tried to take a good shot with Canon 100 mm Macro; but, I ended up with blurry pictures.

Why? Everyone knows green > blue:p

Seriously I actually had to momentarily think why you would want a blue instead of green. Silly, silly me.

Kinda pointless to take pictures, but I can tell you what I use:

Pilot G2-07 Pens (black, red, blue, green)
Bic .07mm Mechanical Pencils
Sharpies - the click version - I have the multi-color pack...that's what happens when you're a recording engineer and have an OCD of labeling recording consoles pretty intensely :-D

I've been using the same pencil since my senior year in high school... which makes it about 21 years old now. :eek:

I have the exact same problem.

I realised that I don't actually own any ballpoint pens I bought myself. They have all been pens that I've picked up at shows or pens I get sent through promotions and stuff.
