I recently found through this site the Fisher Space Pen. I ordered it and was worth the money! Great small pen to carry that works in a lot of different conditions and writes very smooth! What are your thoughts on this pen or other great pens to try ut & carry?

I have the Fisher Bullet in raw brass; I like brass because it's antimicrobial and I'm kinda a germaphobe :wacko: . Hate the smudgy, clumpy Fisher ink though. Since I don't write underwater or in outerspace very frequently (or at all), I'm going to replace with a fine tip Zebra refill.

I had the Fished Space Pen Bullet, and for the most part I enjoyed the writing and size of it. However, after only a few months it slipped out of my pocket and I'm afraid it's gone forever. It had slipped out a few times before, but I was able to recover it. For now I've been carrying a Pilot G-2 .5. I've really come to like this fine point pen.

I always have a Fisher bullet pen with me. I just wish the ink wasn't so blotchy . I also carry a sharpie pen quite a bit.

I used to carry a stainless sharpie pen until I lost it. Now I just recently started carrying my rotring core ballpoint with a Schmidt fine point refil in it.

I use a Cross Click with black gel ball point cartridge.

 

I previously used a Zebra F301 & F701 but this Cross came up at a really good price so thought why not.
 

Also used to have a traditional Cross ball point but its a faff to use at work every day

I usually carry a Lamy Vista Fountain Pen (Demonstrator). Not suitable for space application :-)

Fisher Space Pen, because pocket space is a commodity.

I use a pencil, in the change pocket with the SAK. When I lose it I just get a new one. I keep finding pencils, don't remember ever buying one.

Kaweco Liliput at the moment. Tiny and inexpensive fountain pen of great quality. Chose it because of the screw on cap; means it's safe in the pocket. I have an old, 18 karat Mont Blanc Meisterstuck that was a gift that I use for special occasions. (Currently stored in a lockbox).

I'm looking to switch to a more convenient ball point though. Probably a twist cap from Shaeffer. Suggestions?

Fisher Trekker. Its fastened to my nylon belt key keeper so it's hard to lose.

I tend to alternate between a Tuffwriter operator and a Hinderer investigator but I also carry a Kensington pen that has a stylus for my iPad.

I prefer to write with a mechanical pencil; I carry a Pentel Kerry 0.5mm using HB Pentel Ain Stein Lead.  The cap makes it pocket safe so it doesn't stab me in the leg, it looks great in meetings, it has a good build and a nice weight. I've had it for 6 months and still enjoy using it every time I pull it out of my pocket or bag.

I've just added a fellhoelter tibolt to my rotation. Love the bolt, great to fiddle with. It also takes space pen refills which is a bonus.

Stainless Steel Sharpie marker

Stainless Steel Sharpie pen (need to pick up another one... last one slipped out of my pocket)

 

In the mean time, I've carried a Uniball Jetstream.

 

 

I also have an Embassy Pen (hated the Space Pen insert and the fact that the pen cap didn't post... I have huge hands and the pen just felt tiny.)

I have a Prometheus Alpha Pen that I really like... but I'm getting tired of buying the expensive MontBlanc refills. That, and, when carrying both the Alpha pen and Sharpie pen, I found myself 1) liking the much-finer line of the Sharpie pen and 2) rationalized that I was "spending" less money when writing if I was using the Sharpie instead, since I could replace it more inexpensively.

 

I was looking at the Ti2 Techliner (https://www.kickstar...brass-and-coppe) but... shoot, looks like the Kickstarter is over.

 

I've used the Signo 207 pens that it uses and, even though it goes through the refill quicker, due to the type of ink, the refills are very inexpensive and easy to get. Much more inexpensive/easier to get than the Fineliner.

I will second the love for this pencil. Mine is 20+ years old and still going strong.
