    Is there any pens that have some kind of lanyard
    Because I have to use it all the time at work. And I would
    Have it in a pouch with my knife

    Many people clip them to a lanyard. Depending on the cap, it may clip on the lanyard and you can just uncap the pen to use and have the cap stay on the lanyard. You could also use a keychain style pen that has a ring on the cap and wear it on a lanyard.

    Since you mention it being in a pouch, it sounds like you mean a fob or pull like is typically attached to knives or keys, then I would use a keychain style pen.

    A fisher backpacker may work for you. Any ink preferences? Pen material preferred? If it's possible to loose you may not want the more expensive options.

    Zebra 301-C has an attachment point. I cannot recommend the refill it uses, however. Zebra's ballpoint refill has to be the worst I've ever personally used. I'm 67 & have written extensively over my lifetime, fwiw, & have not encountered a worse one. However, there are other refills that can be made to fit it that are acceptable & the pen design is actually pretty good--especially for a low-bucks pen.

    How about just using a split ring/key ring on the pocket clip as a lanyard attachment point? A slightly thicker ring shouldn't fall off the clip easily.

    Usk15, why are you trying to coerce me into buying that pen? I'm trying really hard to resist. Fortunately, it's not a mechanical pencil, or I'd be done for...

    I like the pen overall.
    I like:
    matte black color
    girth-er than F701 by grip section
    grip design in good
    internal mechanism push the air in the refill (pressurized) kind of Tombow Airpress
    lanyard option
    strong pocket clip too
    feel light, but solid

    I don't like:
    easy to scratch off paint
    lanyard clip is made of plastic and could easily brake off (personal opinion)

    usk15, do you suppose they made the lanyard clip plastic, so yoy could easily remove it if you didn't like it?
    I too like the pen

    It doesn't seems to be easily removable, it looks like one single piece the whole top part.
