I have had the worst luck with pens the last month or so. Two bullet space pens lost out of my pocket, and the clicker on my bolt somehow came unscrewed and dropped at some point. So yeah, I was looking for something cheaper to carry. Just did the space pen mod on a Zebra F-701 I had, and I'm loving it. If I lose it, it's only about 12 bucks to replace, so not hurting too much there. The 701 is a great looking pen and feels great in hand. I used to despise the ink in the space pen refills, but I've kind of just gotten used to it and don't mind it anymore.

I carry a Fisher Space Pen Bullet in matte black, and I carry a standard Bic Round Stic. I am all about multipurpose & versatility in what I carry, and the Bics provide the perfect opportunity for just that: It's like a little water proof container so I store some emergency cash, a sewing needle & thread, and a little loose cotton for tinder in mine.
Did the punk behind the register at McDonald's forget to give you a straw? No worries, you can use the body of your pen as a straw AND you can still write with the core! As a kid, I used to bore a little hole through the middle, add a rubber band and make a mini crossbow. I love the chance to MacGyver anything and Round Stics gave me many chances.

a fine point stainless steel sharpie pen, it's refillable, and sturdy, but doesn't look like a tactical pen, and it's cheap enough to loose.
I've NOW successfully modified it to also be a stylus for my tablet, I'll be getting some pics together and posting them here, and maybe on instructables.com

ALSO seperately, I read on reddit i think somewhere about "hacking" the space pen refil into a zebra, and that if you assemble the parts of two different zebra pens there is an all metal variant. I'll edit this message if i ever find the original post.

I've carried various Zebra pens for years and absolutely LOVE their reliability. I'm now looking into getting something a little more...serious. It's going to set you back A LOT for a pen, but I'm hardcore eyeballing the Prometheus. Check out that link...he also makes SWEET flashlights that I'm also considering.

I just got a Ti solid titanium pen that has a removeable stylus tip from Bigidesign. It holds many different refills, so chances are, it will hold your favorite. For now, I have a Uniball signo 207 .5mm in it. Works great! Looks great!
I would like to experiment with other refills if any of you have any suggestions that are comparable to the signo 207.
Holy @#$%! I just looked up the pens on Bigidesign...I'm in love.
