Your Tiger Pens blogger has been taking a lot of notes lately, so this morning I decided to inventory my pen supply. Here is what I found:
On the desk: A silver and black Bic XXL with foam grip. Tip slightly chewed by cats. Pen is at least six months old and still going strong (although the ink tends to clump occasionally).
In the desk drawer: A metallic maroon Paper Mate Phd. Good pen, comfortable to use, although not crazy about the triangular grip. Ran out of ink a few months ago and got tossed into a drawer to await an eventual refill.
In the cardboard box on the bookshelf:
- A clear Pentel RSVP. Fine writer, but hardly used because the body is too thin for my tastes.
- Two black Bic Soft Feels. Adequate writing pens, way too thin, but the body lives up the billing. They do feel quite soft.
- A black RoseArt pen. Not sure of the model. Almost as thin as a drinking straw. Seems like an adequate writer, but very uncomfortable to use.
- A greyish-white Uni-ball Vision Elite. Very smooth writing experience with a bold .8mm rollerball. But thin, as usual with stick pens – and for some reason, gets even narrower at the grip.
But the most interesting find was in the center console of my car. I don’t remember where it came from –think I nicked it from someone – but it has to have been there a couple of months.
What was it?
A black Pilot G2 Mini. Funny thing is, I’ve paid absolutely no attention to what kind of pen it is, but remember thinking on several occasions when I’ve used it that it is the best writing pen of the lot, despite the tiny size.
How about you, readers? What kind of pens do you have on your desk, in your office and anywhere else you keep them?
