I use a Zebra M-402 and F402 set.  They're extremely affordable, feel great (with the rubber grip) to write with for extended periods, write smoothly and solidly, and my heart doesn't sink when I lose one (unlike Cross and other high end pens).  I just buy another and am good to go again!

New favorite disposable pen- uni power tank they are only available as a japanese import. ebay is the best place to get them. It is a good option to the space pen . writes upside down, on wet surfaces, in cold and is the only pen I have found that writes on the field notes expedition books without smearing. it also does not seem to get blotchy like the space pen.

Pilor Petit1 with Noodler's Texas Black Bat ink

I'm so very interested in one of these (I'm a huge Noodler fan too), but I can't seem to find them in Canada!

The best EDC pen I have found is The Fisher Space Pen (Bullet).  It's so impressive that my wife actually went and requested one for her Christmas gift after only writing with mine 1 time.  Excellent product.  Looking at the Trekker Pen (Fisher as well) as my next addition to my camping gear or even a car EDC kit.

I have recently switched to the Pentel Energel 0.7 from the BTP (Bottle to Pen) .5 that uses G2 ink. I have considered a nicer pen, but have always stopped short at the price of some of them. 

Not strictly because I am too cheap to buy them, that is a factor, it always comes down to the fact that I lose pens a lot. I can lose a standard gel pen a day and not ever notice, other than the irritation of constantly going to the store to replace it...but at $80+ each? Hehe, productivity would cease, my employees would be looking for my pen instead of working :)

Bit of an update, was out and about today, so decided to stop by and grab a Zebra 701, now looking for a suitable replacement refill. I prefer to write with blue, so I picked up blue refills for the pen when I got it, but don't like ballpoint at all, hoping to find something Gel that will fit. So far have tried a Energel, G2 and 207 refill to no avail.

Fisher Space Pen for me too.

I have a Bullet in blue and a PoliceTech wedge from my security days.   Excellent pen for all conditions.

 

 

For pencils I like the propelling / clutch type.

Currently using the Pentel 207 but I do have some Pentel GraphGear 500s incoming.  

Much better than an HB that needs constant resharpening.

Pentel make great pencils.  I think I mentioned earlier in the thread that I use a Pentel Kerry, I also keep a P205 on my office desk.  I used to use only woodcase pencils and shun mechanicals, but now I'm a convert - as you said, no sharpening mess; plus with the Kerry I can put the cap on so it doesn't stab me in the leg.

 

The GraphGear line look like beautiful writing instruments, let us know what you think of them!

I like the Stainless Parker Jotter.  Looks good, is reliable and cheap.  I've got three hidden in strategic spots around the house.

When I was writing up the Southpaw Gear article I definitely wanted to feature the pen I EDC, the Zebra Surari. Despite having may G2s lying around, for some reason my writing style is really bad for gel pens. Problem solved when I discovered this guy, and even better when last year the local bookstores started carrying it. It does have its faults (it's leaked on me once or twice), but I am in love with its writing flow and feel.

A little, but I expect to use it forever.  I probably could have made something like this, but I read a review online and decided to just buy it.  Has worked out well for me since I use notebooks a lot.  I may try making something like this for a bigger notebook.

I have a Parker Jotter too that I got as a gift and has become part of carry recently, I don't always have it on me but Ive been bringing it along more often than not so I think I might make it a part of my normal carry.

Smudging, Mikey?  I see a lot of lefties that smudge across the page as they write.  Maybe once it's realized by teachers/parents that a child is a lefty, they should teach them to write right to left..no more smudging!  I guess that would be a bit like forced Dyslexia...
