    They are to me Mr. Bond :) They are not flashy, which I guess is the point of traditionals? I know it's hard to talk about value when you pay XXX for a pocket knife, but compared to other makers Todd's F&F, W&T are really good value. There is no compromise. Don't get me wrong. Just a great knife at a decent price.

    For general jottings it's a Uniball Powertank and Field Notes pad. But for more permanent things it's my Cross.


    I'm wondering does this count to? I occasionally play about with these old pen nibs. They really are great writers though I'm hardly an expert in calligraphy.

    This is the only pen desk set I have. It's nice and all, but as you can see the right pen is about to come off the platform and the pens have never actually done anything since I got them.;)

    For me, this thread is like a visit to an alien planet, weird but wonderful! :eek::confused:;)
    Pens are not something I ever think about. I just grab whatever is handy (almost invariably either a cheap Bic ballpoint or a "souvenir" from a hotel visited sometime in the past 4 decades). Here's a pic of the two pens that were lying on the kitchen table yesterday.

    Old pen, newly acquired knife. The pen still is in use after 50 years of service. Chrome worn off in spots and some dents. Knife is newly acquired from JD Bear.

    Here is my favorite EDC with my favorite pen. It is a Fisher Space pen, the Bullet model to be precise.

    That's quite the collection, are those all different types of nibs?

    For a few years now, my Pilot Custom Heritage 92 F has been a favorite on-the-go pen. Currently inked with PR DC Supershow Blue. My Beer Scout has quickly become a similar regular carry.
