Are you a pen or pencil person? Spock's is most likely a crayon.

If you have a favorite brand/style of pen or pencil, what is it?

I've always been a big fan of the Pilot G-2 as far as cheaper pens go. I also have a GraphGear mechanical pencil that I really like writing with.

A pen from my collection of pens I always pick up at conferences. Some engineering firms have really good pens.

Outside of a quick note, couldn’t tell you the last time I wrote. Probably HS (2005)

I have an OG Tactile Turn pen from 2013ish. I use it daily and it's been a real upgrade over the old plastic pens i used to destroy out in the field in my youth. Now that I'm primarily an office jockey, it's not necessary, but I have it, so I use it.

Uni Ball Vision Elite is my pen of choice.  I don't like the clicking pens - I prefer a cap.

I always carry a pen and it’s made by TrueUtility. 

It has a ruler on the side, a small Phillips and flathead inside and a level. 


......and LOL at “crayon”

Solid choice. I found a Mont Blanc once at a place I was auditing and it would literally glide across the paper. Unfortunately it was the CEO’s and I had to give it back.

Cheap pens 10 for $1

The gel pens piss me off as a lefty as they often just stop writing

Everyday use: Uniball 207

I used my Papermate pen/pencil set that I got when I was ten for being in my cousins wedding. I used it from then until college to write all my papers and used on all my tests. I still have them but don't use them much anymore.
