|As a parts guy, I use pens for a good portion of the day, so it makes sense for me to include my pens in my EDC.|
Due to the nature of my job, my pens tend to walk away, so I really try not to use my expensive pens, though today, I've got them here with me to show what I like to carry.
From the top, there's the Zebra G-301 Gel Retractable Ballpoint pen. The retractable ballpoint pen is perhaps one of the most common pen types, as well as the most versatile. The G-301 is a Gell-ink version of Zebras more popular F-301.
Next, we have the Zebra Stylus retractable ballpoint. I like this one because it has a stylus for use with touchscreen devices on the top. It uses the Zebra C15 refill.
Next is the Zebra F-701, which is functionally identical to the F-301, but with a Stainless Steel body. It uses the 301a refill.
The Zebra F-402 is, again, another variant of the F-301, just with a more ergonomic body. I would say this is my favorite pen I own.
This Pilot Precise V5 RT, while an inexpensive pen, writes vary nicely, with a fine .5mm line. This is a retractable rollerball pen.
The Sharpie Pen Stainless felt-tip fine-tip marker is nice for marking shelf tags, warranty cards and other things that require a permenant, fine-line marking.
The Zebra V-301 Fountain Pen, while not a normal fountain pen, writes smoothly, and doesn't make a mess like other fountain pens. It's a bit awkward for leftys, though, ans I found out.
Finally, the Pilot MR Animal series fountain pen lays down thick lines or thin, depending on how you hold the pen. It does make a bit of a mess, though, And it goes through ink faster than any pen I've ever had. But, it does write nicely.
Keep checking back for more EDC stuff.
