Favorite Writing Utensil

Got a random idea for a quiz the other day and I figured I'd see what the results were...

I voted mechanical pencil

I'm talking about NORMAL writing utensils. As in for taking notes, writing letters, etc.

I prefer pens that really write dark and inky. The more it bleeds (in most cases), the better.

Crayons ARE normal writing utensils. To me.



(in all seriousness, I like gel-ink pens like Ions and Uni-Balls, sometimes Pilots.)

Mechanical Pencil is what i use most often, for schoolwork and stuff.

i also like a good ballpoint, but i'm damn picky.

black ink, the Pilot Dr. Grip ones are fukkin awesome.
Pilot pens in general are good tho.

Same here. I only like using Pilots for school work. Except for math, for that I use a wooden pencil.

Hail Scriveners!

Since I can never find a pen or pencil when I need one I write the way my dark, inscrutable gods intended for me to write.
In human blood...


Sometimes I'll substitute animal blood for works of lesser importance like grocery lists, things to do, etc.

Same page as grumpyolddude here; Parker, black, medium. The ones with the brass (or brassy metal) inside the top half, rather than plastic. Juuuuust the right weight.

The Parker stainless steel ballpoint I found in the college computer labs a while back. Smooth, sleek, nice weight.

Entirely. Those are my favorite as well - the slack for the lead makes it a lot more resistant to breaking and I find it gives a smooth feel when I write.

It's a tie between mechanical pencil and the Pilot Hi-Tec C 0.3mm pen for me. It's a 0.3mm pen, thinner than my pencil and doesn't bleed or spread on paper. Great for doodling or stabbing people.

Can't see it too well here though.

Erasermates, those erasable pens that actually work. Not good ink, but I hate pencils and make a lot of mistakes, so it works.
