I last used a pen about three weeks ago. Don't imagine I'll use one for another three weeks, at least.
This is my experience too. I use a stylus on a tablet to write patient notes these days. Haven't used a pen in months....maybe longer

Closest I've been to a fountain pen is owning a WWII Ink Well given to me by a friend whose dad "borrowed" it from his ship back in the day.

These are my go-to pens, have been for decades. :mrgreen:

I have a hand made ball point probably still packed away from a move.
A neighbor produced it on his specialty lathe for me as a gift for hooking him up with exotic wood remnants from a guitar maker I know.

Oldschool but I keep going back to my gold cross pen with my name engraved on it that was a present from a former Boss. Have the engraved mechanical pencil also.

Have a Montblanc roller and fountain pen also but roller refills are expensive and dont last long.

Watermans are, of course, very nice and I also like Pelikan on the lower end.

I go back and forth liking fat or slim pens the best. Cant stand to use a cheapie. As bad as a disposable plastic razor. I did write quite a bit back in the day and still do every day but much less.

That's so cool. I'd find excuses to write with a pen if somebody made me one. I have a beautiful old glass ink well but have never used it - it's just on display.

I have a Waterman Nissan "Z" ballpoint. Has the Z logo on the non-business end of the pen. Had it for a very long time.

The twist to retract the cartridge function does not work properly. Sent it to Waterman. Could not repair, so they sent me a similar pen (non-Z-logo) gratis. My wife has that one.

A handmade (?) wooden pen I picked up during my travels at a bookstore many years ago somewhere in the middle of Ohio I believe. The inkwell is just an old glass Mont Blanc Ive had over 30 years.
