What’s Your Favorite Ink Or Pen?


Do you ever get asked what’s your favorite ink or pen? That’s a tough question when there is so much variety on the market but still people ask.

“Can I answer with my three favorites?”

“Nope, I really want to know your top choice. Betcha can’t pick just one!”

“Okay, but this is only my choice at this moment and subject to change in a heartbeat.”

Then there are those who ask what’s your favorite item within a brand. Even that can be hard to answer. Here’s the list but only for manufacturers for which I really do have a preferred ink or pen.
