Let's talk pens

Yes you heard me right, lets talk about pens. I just recently ordered this Fisher Space Pen. They make a few version, but I got this one for EDC.

The bullet space pen. Pressurized ink that allows you to write in any temperature, anywhere, underwater in space etc. It's a small form factor but turns into a standard size pen.



Also while I was looking I came across another popular model of pen the Zebra 701. Make sure to get the new model that says all metal inside and out that you don't have to mod.



I really need to stay off the internet late at night. Does anyone else use a quality pen?

that you don't have to mod.
Your modding a ballpoint pen? WTF. Do you have some waterproof paper to go with your pen that writes under water?

Have some decent pens around, like the gel ink things. Don't need a super expensive pen, i'm fine with a pretty cheap pen that works well and I'll just replace it when it quits. Haven't felt the need to try to write while I was in the pool.

They actually do make waterproof paper for them. What you mean you don't want to write a book underwater?

I bought two of the space pens a few years ago and stuck them in my camping/emergency gear along with the Rite in the Rain waterproof notepads.

My Zebra F701s arrived yesterday. Man what a great pen. Because of the all metal design it has a good 'balanced weight and feel' to it. It actually makes you want to write with it because it feels so good in your hand. I would highly recommend them.
