Cheap hotel ball point pens is the writting instrument of choice.

Like them but they get taken too often. Our dean here uses a VERY nice wooden fountain pen

I use whatever pen I last picked up at the bank or somewhere. I am a terrible pen thief. Don't let me use one you'll probably never get it back.

I've never used a fountain pen...I've seen one but never used one. A coworker of mine used to use them all the time.

I don't really like writing in pen, since I'm an engineer at heart, we use pencils :P and like a previous poster said, with everything being electronic, we don't have to write much anymore other than to sign our names on checks and debit/credit card receipts :)

No. Skillcraft government pens only.
Which is good because they kind of suck.

BICs are cheap and for some reason they write better than pens 3 to 4 times the price! $$$

Nope. I use a bic. It just seems easier

Yep. Use, restore, collect. Today, I'm carrying a 1940's striped Duofold (green/brown) and a Sheaffer Vac-Fil of the same vintage with a chrome cap and triumph nib. Restored both of these myself in the past month. I'd rather leave my watch at home than a pen or two.

Used to -- a neat fountain pen with a bright blue ink was my signature in more ways than one. They got too messy, though -- now I use ballpoints.

I've used the Varsity. It is nice for a disposable, but still doesn't come close to my Parker.

I use to use them all the time but with work and those things we type on I generall stopped writing and even making notes. My hand writing has gone bonkers, but would love to write with one again.

an amazing fountain pen is the disposable "Varsity"

Never thought I'd see 'badass' and 'fountain pen' in the same sentence.

My handwriting style doesn't work very well with fountain pens, or at least the ink that most of them use. It's too slopy as it is and a fountian pen seems to make it worse.

My all time FAVORITE pen are those U.S.Government black clickers with the double silver bands.
Love those!

I used one for years, but about 5 years ago my wife bought me a Mont Blanc rollerball for Christmas that I have fallen in love with. So much easier to write with and just as smooth.

haven't for years...pain to use

I LOVE fountain pens but am horrible at leaving them in my pants pockets and then washing my clothes with it in there.

I regularly use Parker 51 and Parker 21. Also have a badass Rotring Core and Parker 21-deskset. Fountain pens are classic!
