QotD: Pen

Question: Pen or pencil?

My Answer: Gosh I don't like pencils. The scratching, the sharpening… give me a thick pen every time.

  1. My pen of choice is the Uni-Ball VISION ink pen. I buy them by the box.

  2. Give me a good machenical pencil any day... after that a nice pen (not a cheap-o bic).

  3. I would never consider anything else than a fountain pen for serious writing.

    My pen of choice is a Caran d'Ache "Varius" Fountain Pen with a rosewood body.

    It's definitely a nice writing instrument and just the right thingâ„¢ for these important letters for your loved one ;).

  4. Question of the Day

    From NSLog();: Pen or Pencil? Pens, all the way. But, with qualifications, of course. It's actually kind of strange. I would probably use pencils a lot more if I just thought about it. But using a pencil really never occurs...

  5. A lot of people probably haven't noticed how difficult it can be to find wooden pencils. They are almost all mechanical now. sold in multi packs like so many razors. But the first thing to go was decent pencil sharpening.

    They don't make them like they used to.

    Question: Pen or pencil?

    PEN. I've hated pencils every since I started school many eons ago. I'll use pencils on scanny bubble tests and nothing more.

  7. A good mechanical pencil (not those cheap 10¢ ones) is the way to go.

    I've never particularly liked writing with pens, and wooden pencils are never sharpened when you need them. (And good luck finding a pencil sharpener these days!) Wooden pencils are good for many types of drawing (due to the ability to adjust pressure, sharpness, etc.), but a good mechanical pencil is better for writing.
