  1. I really enjoyed reading this, Tom! Wow. From that beautiful hand-made fountain pen (I used to love writing with them but now don’t even own one), to that familiar yellow #2 pencil. I keep one of those within reach but the eraser is probably rock hard by now.

    Like you, The Pilot G2 is the first thing I reach for when needing to sign something or scribble a bit. I’d like an .05 but I have a large stockpile of .07’s which work well.

    Enjoyed reading each description. A wonderful post that’s a real insight to what you use when not at the keyboard! Just one question. You didn’t mention Sharpie’s but knowing you, it was probably it’s more for marking than for writing and probably not even considered a writing instrument.

  2. I reach for the free ones I have gotten from our local furniture store; ball point with a good grip. A question I have: do you consider the keyboard a writing instrument? Just curious because I use the keyboard alot for letters, etc.

  3. I carry a Uni Ball Vision Elite blue ink in my pants pocket. Once a nerd, always … I have lost the pocket protector though. The Elite ink smears all too easily, especially on glossy paper. But the cap stays on through thick and thin. I’ll have to check out an Exact.
