The Everyday Carry

Pentel EnerGel Alloy Gel Pen

Writes beautifully in my Cortex Subtle journal and feels entirely premium.

0.7mm black ink, blue body

When A Finer Point is Required

Uni Jetstream Standard Ballpoint Pen

Use case: writing in my Field Notes journals on the go.

0.5mm blue ink, white body

For Humblebragging The Sunday Crossword

Pilot FriXion Ball Clicker US Gel Pen

This is my go-to for solving the NYTimes Crossword in ink. I still need the ability to erase but prefer the contrast of pen to lead on the tinted pages of the Sunday Magazine. Plus, when I’m done, it looks like I solved the puzzle in one go in ink.

0.7mm blue ink, blue body
