I used to have three of the same pen but I temporarily lost one. Which is why I have three in the first place. Because I loose pens like a mad man. One day I will know what it is like to use a pen until it runs out of ink...

I have a Cross Century that was given to my granddad when he retired from Singer. Best pen I have for underlining, etc. (and looks dang snappy to boot)

The day-to-day writing/work pen is one of these beauties:

Mont Blanc pens suck.
they are over priced, they really don't write that well, and they break very easily due to the resin and glass fiber casing.

I would never spend $500- $250000 on a pen that might not last more then a month when there are some very nice pens out there for less.

I somewhat agree with this. My father has a Mont Blanc & he never writes with it because it's rubbish to write with. But as a collector's piece, they're wonderful & well worth the price.

Here's the team, redundancy, redundancy. (I lose pens a lot)

I think the Pentel .7mm Energel is my favorite of the group, with the non-needle-point version of the Uniball Signo 207 a close second. The G2 just seems scratchier and less consistent, as do all the needle-point versions. The .5mm needle-point Energel is nice for tiny forms though, like the deposit slips at my bank.

How does this work with the new OS X software? Some users reported the new software is a pain.
I want something that makes notes easier to use, not more difficult.

I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I am graduating from University and my parents are going to buy me a nice pen as a graduation gift.

I will more than likely use it everyday when I soon become a High School teacher.

However, I don't know anything about pens. I think they're going to spend up to £100 / $150.

What would you recommend and why? BTW, I'm left handed.

P.S. I always use Pentel Energel pens. You wouldn't believe how many customers compliment my pen at work.

They're about £1.50 each.

I have all the colors, but usually stick to black and blue.

Heh, 2 to 3 bucks each.

Most of the pens I have been buying lately are between 100 and 400.

Looking at getting one of these next.

Made out of lava from Mt Etna, with a palladium nib.

Pentel R.S.V.P. I love these pens, I use them for everything I do. :) I found one in a hallway at school once, and immediately began to use it exclusively for all my schoolwork/poems/comics/stories. Now I've got boxes of them stored away, just in case I can't find them anymore.

This is quite possibly the greatest 'standard' pen ever created! Fantastic for flip ability. :D

Excuse my ignorance, but WTF does a $400 pen do that ones that are $1 for a dozen don't?
