I have been carrying a Fisher Space Bullet Pen for nearly a year now and absolutely love it for its portability and use with my pocket notebook. As of a few days ago, I picked up a Stainless Steel Sharpie and I love that as well but it serves a different purpose because I use it with a larger notebook that I keep on my desk for more detailed writing.


My question lies in this: How do you guys use your multiple pens in your EDC? I see many people on here who carry upwards of 5 to 10 pens at a time; some on their person, some in a bag. I have yet to see an explanation on why those people carry that many pens at once.

For myself, I carry a Fisher Space Pen (the clicker model), an also a regular size sharpie. I keep the pen for regular writing I do, mainly filling out check sheets at work and shipping paper work, where as the sharpie gets used for when I need to mark boxes or items of importance that I need to go back later and put a tag on.

Sometimes I carry several fountain pens with different inks that are appropriate different projects. Sometimes style, color, design come into play, and it's nice to have some options on the fly.

I have exactly two pen slots in my laptop bag so I guess that's a good way to ensure I have a backup, but for my normal EDC pouch I only carry one. Other than being a requirement of the right pen for a specific task, for me personally I carry multiple pens because I don't use them often and they're there in case of backup in case one or the other dries up.
