    Fountain. It just flows better and my writing's always tidier with fountain pens.

    Pilot VPen. Blue ink.

    It's a fountain pen, and it writes perfectly, very fast and easy to write with.

    Unfortunately they're not cheap. So buy them on eBay from Hong Kong. Need to order some more soon

    Ballpoint, Rollerball or Fountain.

    What's your favourite type of pen and why? :cool:
    Staedtler Fine 0,4mm pen

    FINELINERS

    triplus or the normal ones with octagonal cross section.

    they are really nice to write with although they can smudge if you are really careless

    I also like fountain pens if I am writing a letter or signing a document..

    Nowadays I only use Staples Comfort Stic. The only pen that makes my handwriting legible.

    Yeah see I use these and they ALWAYS show through without fail :mad: It's rather ridiculous.

    I'd use ballpoints but my hand goes all stiff and sore due to the increased pressure required compared to rollerballs.

    They're very nice

    Just the right ink flow, smooth and yummy.

    But they run out very very quick. Easily go through 3 a fortnight.

    I'm thinking of getting a pack of Staedtler Triplus Fineliners - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Staedtler-tr...965463&sr=1-11

    Any opinions on the Staedtler Triplus pens?
