    In camp carry, not a big fan of tactical pens bit too bulky.

    Field carry, bullet pen has survived Iraq once and Afghanistan twice quite attached to that wee pen now.

    I'm still looking for a pen that I like, but here's my pencil, flash drive and notebook. If anyone has a pen suggestion keeping with the black and yellow theme, please share!

    It's a little pricey, but there was a limited edition yellow Lamy Safari made with a black clip (and black nib for the fountain pen). :)

    For the same price you could probably get the charcoal black one and a yellow one and frankenstein them together. :p

    Looked up the yellow one. I like the style! As much as I love fountains, I would probably get a normal one. I'm lefthanded and fountains don't usually agree with me! I will have to see if I can find one and match up the colours.

    I have been obsessed by Ranga's and ebonite in general. That one is a number 2 in black ebonite with bakul finish and a fine nib. The nib smoothed out nicely with just a little effort. A very nice writer and only $17.99 plus a three week wait while it made it's way from India

    I carry the Zebra F-701 daily, didn't know about the Fisher refills gonna have to give that a try.
    The Mont Blanc Starwalker is only for special occasions, it is a Fathers day gift from 5 years ago.

    This is my Pen rotation in its current form

    [​IMG]
    I have a Long/Short pen in my pants pocket or shirt pocket at all times it changes week to week but I always have one of these little guys on me.

    [​IMG]
    On days when I have class, I carry 3 pelikans; an extra fine,an extra extra fine and a fine cursive italic nib.This line up is pretty consistent but sometimes I like to switch it up with.....

    [​IMG]
    Any of these pens. The Sheaffer 500 and Snorkel are new additions supplanting my grandfathers p51 as the vintage pen(s) in my rotation. Rounding up my rotation we have a parker25 and my first fountain pen a pilot 78g (which has recently been outfitted with a stub nib).

    [​IMG]
    A picture of all the pens I use or rotate in my daily carry. My current goal is to add some more vintage pens, some more premium pens and more stub/cursive nibs into this rotation.

    Very nice. I am trying to talk myself out of ordering a Pilot Falcon Elabo (metal) and a Nakaya Naka-ai in Kuro Tamenuri (or a dorsal fin...)

    Two lovely pens, I mean if you hate kittens and puppies and all things pure and good in this world you could TOTALLY do without either of those.

    I know exactly what you mean. I am like a man obsessed when it comes to that Nakaya... Hoo boy. It's come to wondering if I can get the Naka-ai with a dorsal fin...

    I just picked up this black Lamy Swift at Paradise Pen Company yesterday. I had not been in that store for years and was drooling within 2 minutes. The prices for some of the pens there just blew me away. I've replaced my Retro 51 stealth Tornado with the the Swift. The Tornado is OK, but I wasn't overly impressed with it. I like the Lamy. My next purchase will be Lamy Safari in charcoal . Here are 2 photos of my new Swift:

    I love the idea of the retractable pocket clip.

    There was a very expensive Salvatore Dali commemorative pen on display (I think it was by Visconti; I know they make several), but this one was displayed on its own; the price tag read $4950. Yikes!

    I researched the Swift the other week and found out its design is from 20 years ago. That's good design.

    The Ti cap is prettier but the nubby-tip is very useful.
