I’m guessing that everyone has to have at least one… The one you go reaching for every single time that inspiration strikes. Someone recently asked me about my own favorite pen and I had to chuckle because it seems as though it changes every hour. I am primarily a fountain pen user with about 18 in my collection. I think 14 of them are currently inked, (all with a different color) and while each gets at least some occasional use, there are a few that I return to again and again. 2 to 3 of my brightly colored Lamy Safari’s and my Sailor Sapporo probably see the most use, though I’m learning to love my new Auroro Ipsilon shown in the photo above. For extended writing sessions, I find it extremely helpful to have a well balanced pen in my hand. To date, the Sapporo is my #1 pen to fit the bill, with the Ipsilon coming in a close second.
If I’m not using a fountain pen, I enjoy using Uniball Signo gel pens and Pitt Artist Pens. Both come pretty close to the oh-so-smooth writing experience that my fountain pens provide.
Will you tell me about your favorite pens?
