From top to bottom:

Fisher Space Pen - $18

Popular, cheap, writes anywhere and on almost anything.

The Pen Project (originally from Kickstarter) - $60 (I paid $30)

Uses the Fisher Space Pen cartridge, milled out of aluminum. Backed this project on Kickstarter but didn't really like the pen's design - little too thick and didn't like that it used the Fisher cartridge.

Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen - $52.50

Awesome EDC pen, writes extremely well, lightweight, cap posts to the pen, overall just a great EDC pen if you like fountain pens.

Ti Pocket Pro (also originally from Kickstarter) - $75 (I paid $65)

My newest addition to the collection... just got this a couple weeks ago. Accepts over 80 refills but ships with a gel-ink cartridge that writes similar to the G2 pens. Love the rich, smooth ink and the design of the pen. Made out of solid titanium.

I like the $17-ish Bullet model. I've carried one in my front pocket for the past five years. Works great, but I don't like the quality of the tip. I wish I could get the same kind of pocket carry with a G2 insert.

u/SwordOfBraavos · 11 pointsr/EDC

If you are a ballpoint kind of person the Fisher Space Pen is for you, if you want a fountain pen go for a Kaweco sport, and you might want to look at the Pokka Pen.
 
I personally love my Kaweco sport and Fisher Space Pen

Suggestions for improving your pocket experience, based on my experience with trying to minimize the amount of stuff in my pockets:

  1. Try using a smaller pen. In particular, the Fisher Bullet Space Pen is incredibly small, but when the cap is attached to the back of the pen, it becomes full sized.
    You'd probably have to do something similar for your stylus (although what is a stylus useful for on an iPhone?)

  2. Get a carabiner for your keys and move them to a belt loop, if you don't have many keys.

  3. Get a smaller wallet. This is especially feasible if your wallet mainly just contains cards; there are a number of minimalist wallet solutions available; the one I ended up using was the TGT 2.0, which was based off using a rubber band (and is generally only useful for keeping your cards together).
    But of course, you have to pick one that works for you, and none of them will hold coins, and most don't hold bills well either.

    I also wouldn't really trust those door locking / unlocking apps; they're generally finicky and require trading security for minor convenience. Not to mention what happens if your phone gets stolen. Or runs out of battery. Or the power goes out. And, of course, you're keyless at that point :|

Left to Right:


Slim Wallet - It's super thin and it attaches to my phone. ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07P4J55NV/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_9msGDb54PTKM2 )


Watch - It's durable and in my opinion doesn't look too bad for the price. ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B009KYJAJY/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_BosGDbN06048V )


Mint Things - They are pretty strong breath strips that have an amazing form factor. ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B004XWM1NA/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_kVyGDbB6KA26N )


Space Pen - The end needed to be worn down last year because too many teachers tried to accuse me of having a juul. ( https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0002ZQB4M/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_-WyGDbQNQWE30 )

Phone - Not pictured but a Pixel 3a.


My teacher showed up late, so I had time to do this.

u/Machksov · 7 pointsr/pens

Honestly as a civil engineer he may just appreciate a Fisher Space Pen. Get him one with a clip. $20 on Amazon right now. He'll appreciate the versatility and the history.


u/coldfrontin · 5 pointsr/EDC

This is the stuff I have on me most of the time. I’m a grad student and as you can see, I’ve been lurking here for quite a while. I’m basically an /r/EDC stereotype at this point.

  • Saddleback wallet
  • bullet space pen
  • Nitecore p12 flashlight (winter . . . short days)
  • Ruger SR9c (winter)
  • Sig p938 (summer)
  • Spyderco delica (summer)
  • Benchmade 950-1 rift (winter)
  • carmex
  • phone
  • keys
  • N82 IWB holsters

    *Thoughts: I used to carry a FourSevens QT2A (I think?) and it fit in the pocket much better but was obviously much dimmer than the p12. I think i'll go back to a smaller flashlight next winter. I've also carried a Benchmade 707, 275, and several 556 styles. Of all of them I liked the 707 the best but I tend to give away my knives to anyone that takes interest and the 707's price had gone way up when I went to buy another one.

    The p938 is, of course, much easier to carry than the SR9c but I can't hit shit beyond 10 feet away and it only holds 6 rounds. Luckily the odds of me needing to hit someone more than 4 feet away are effectively zero. I kind of regret buying the Sig but it'll do for another summer or two. I highly recommend N82 holsters because they are so damn comfortable and secure compared to most others I've tried. The Saddleback ID wallet is amazing if you never need to carry cash, and I've not found a better pen for my pocket than the Fisher space pen. I also like to buy the space pens in bulk so I can give them away to people who take interest.

Fisher Space Pen refills come with an adapter that fits on the back so that they can fit into any pen that takes Parker-style refills. So you have lots of options if you'd like to go that route.

Or, if you'd like pens that are designed for the Fisher Space Pen refill specifically, here are some options:

u/Keith · 3 pointsr/EDC

Can't really pick just one, but I figure you'd rather see more interesting things people carry than fewer, so here some are in order of "if I had to pick one":

  1. Fisher Bullet Space Pen - with clip, carry in coin pocket
  2. Chicobag Micro - I'm annoyed they don't make it in black anymore in case mine, which I've been using fairly often/heavily for years, finally gets a rip. Heck maybe this should be #1, I'd be ok with another pen.
  3. Nightcore TIP
  4. Nite-ize Ahhh s-biner+bottle opener to carry items like giant car key fob, garage clicker, and the above flashlight on my belt loop so that they're not attached to my keychain stuffed in my front pocket. The bottle opener is surprisingly great. (I actually purchased a 10x-price Corter Bottlehook very recently to "upgrade", and the bottle opener is bad, so it's in a drawer.)

    I should do an updated EDC post sometime...
u/grumblegeek · 3 pointsr/BuyItForLife

The items I can think of right now that I've bought pretty much because of this subreddit:

  1. Zojirushi Travel mug - I use this as my office coffee mug. I fill it up in the morning and if I get sidetracked then it's still hot hours later.

  2. Saddleback Pocket ID Wallet - simple and gets the job done

  3. Weber One-Touch Gold Charcoal Grill - I love this grill.

  4. Red Wing Iron Ranger 8111 (amber color) - the first 3 weeks I thought I made a huge mistake but now they are the most comfortable shoes I've ever owned.

  5. Fisher Space Pen - I've had to stop other people from pocketing it. My wife tried to take it because she likes the way it writes.

  6. [Kershaw Skyline Knife] (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001CZBDF8) - I'm not into putting a lot of money into a pocketknife so this fits the bill nicely.

  7. ToiletTree Heavy Duty Nose and Facial Hair Trimmer - my previous nose trimmers felt like it was ripping the hair out by the root. This one I don't feel anything and it's very well made

    All of these I would buy again.
u/zck · 3 pointsr/atheismplus

For some people, including -- I would assume -- many of the people here, religion is just one of many things people use to harm others. Why should we have to have a separate subreddit for each of the possible things that can be harmful? Why should we go to another subreddit^(1), when we like this one? For some of us, atheism is tangled up in the other things we care about. That's not normally the case for "social justice".

And overall, what's the problem with this subreddit? I'm not trying to argue that you belong here, but you seem to be arguing that no one belongs here. Why? We^(2) like it here. Yes, there are other, similar subreddits. So what?

[1] Also, that subreddit is less than 10% of the size of this one. Maybe they should come here.

[2] I use "we" to mean "the subscribers that enjoy this subreddit". This group contains at least one person: me. You stating that you -- or other people -- don't enjoy this subreddit is no more apropos than me arguing that because I only use a space pen, /r/calligraphy is pointless.

u/DontFuckWithMyMoney · 3 pointsr/pens

Zebra F-701: Nice weight and grip, and the ballpoint isn't bad. I recommend to mod it to be even better.

Fisher Space Pen: The cream of the crop when it comes to ballpoint inks, Fisher pens are really nice. There's lots of variety, so check around for the style you like.

Baoer Skywalker: is a good not-knockoff of the Montblanc Starwalker. I have one, and with good ink in it it's a nice pen. The clip is a little flimsy but I like it, nice and heavy.

Jinhao 599: Heavy and solid pen, but a little cheap feeling at times. It's a rollerball, so I don't know if it takes ballpoint refills.

Vktech Tactical Pen: I have one of these and it's very solid but lightweight too. The ink it comes with is garbage, but it fits any standard Parker refill. I have a Parker gel refill and it writes great. There are lots of other "tactical" pens out there made of steel and aluminum, but this is the most affordable option.

Hope that helps!

u/kyngnothing · 3 pointsr/ADHD

I use a stack of index cards, often with a small binder clip to hold them together.

Combined with a small pen that I pretty much always carry, I always know where my lists are, I can write down anything that strikes me, and since they're index cards (and not a notebook), I can easily shuffle my multiple lists.

I'll often have a "work stuff", "stuff today at home", and a "stuff this week at home" lists (at a minimum) going at the same time.

I've also tried every electronic to-do app, and they just don't work for me.

Whenever I have a minute and think "what should I do now", I just check my cards.

u/Mongrel80 · 2 pointsr/EDC

So I carry a Maratac AAA Rev 3. Last year for the holidays my wife bought me a Leatherman MUT multi-tool. I don't carry that with me everywhere, but I absolutely love the sheath that came with it. My multi-tool of choice is the SOG PowerLock. I've been carrying that thing since 2003.

Here is everything keep on my belt: Link

  • SOG PowerLock (This is not the exact model, but closest I could find.)
  • Maratac AAA Rev 3
  • Fisher Space Pen
  • Mini Sharpie

    Keeping this whole thing on my right hip, the front side of the sheath holds the writing bits. Link And on the back side is where I hold the flashlight. Link
u/sco0ts19 · 2 pointsr/EDC

You can’t go wrong with a Fisher Bullet Space Pen. However, the clip doesn’t like thicker material and it’s best to keep it in a pocket slip of some sort if kept loose in pocket.


I recently picked up two of theseKetalon Rohk on a buy one get one free deal. They are my new edc and great pens, but to be honest $32 for one pen is pretty pricy. If you can catch another sale I would definitely recommend them.

u/_MedboX_ · 2 pointsr/EDC

I'm 28, in the Navy, and here's what I'm usually carrying.

Maxpedition Pocket Organizer

NM Flag patch

Old coin given to me a while ago

Sparrow's Tuxedo Pick Set It's a great set, and a cool thing to learn. The linked set has a different case, I guess they don't do the leather cases anymore. I also had them put rubber handles on mine when I ordered, makes all the difference.

USB cord that came with my phone

Tekton 4" adjustable wrench

Zebra pen. Forgot which specific one...you probably know it though, it's one of the popular choices on this sub. My main pen I keep in my breast pocket, the Fisher Bullet. That's the best pen I've ever had, hands down.

Fine point Sharpie

Rite in the Rain notebook. It's ok. I much prefer Field Notes Expedition which I also keep in mind that breast pocket. Just wish the pages were perforated.

Streamlight Microstream. Awesome little light, and the AAA battery it takes lasts quite a while.

Chapstick

ThermoWorks surface thermometer. Sorry, can't find a link. My buddy gave me this last Christmas. Comes in real handy in the field, to see if my JetBoil is too hot to put away. Also, I dunno, I can tell you if stuff is hot or cold or whatever. Neat.

u/eibv · 2 pointsr/EDC

If you are going to buy a new one I'd recommend to just buy the factory one. Even if you don't clip it to a pocket, it will keep it from rolling away. I think it's the same price to buy them combined or separately though.

u/teamblueberry · 2 pointsr/EDC

I've been using the [Fisher Space Pen Bullet with Clip.] (https://www.amazon.com/Fisher-Space-Pen-Bullet-Clip/dp/B0002ZQB4M/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1483725163&sr=8-3&keywords=fisher+space+pen) for about 3 years now and I've run it though the wash and dryer more times than I can count. I love this pen and highly recommend it. It can take a beating and keep writing through 3 years of daily writing.

-Old Geoffrey Beene Wallet sorry it's the closest thing I came across. This lives in my back right pocket

u/dilvish-damned · 1 pointr/EDC

I gotcha on this one! I just went through the exact same thing. I had been using a Pilot G2 .38 and loving it. Wanted it to be portable and metal.

You'll have to switch to frixion. Doesn't write quite as nicely as the G2 but it's close. Plus frixion is erasable.

Get a Fisher bullet and toss the childishly thick cartridge. And then put in the cartridge from the frixion.

You'll need to add something to the end of the Fisher pen to ensure the cartridge is pushed out....I used a wooden dowel.

Hope that helps! Let me know if you have questions.

u/usmcahump · 1 pointr/EDC

Knife: definitely something more beefy than the Leek (while it is a beautiful knife you may want something more rugged I like the Ontario rat 2 or the fixed blade Rat 3 I also like this gerber "survival knife"
Light: that's a great light good pick
Multitool: This gerber is my favorite, they've taken me through two deployments overseas and still run like a champ
Pen: Space pen for sure

u/korgothwashere · 1 pointr/EDC

Also, if you don't already have one /u/squatch2401 , you can just buy a Space Pen that has a clip with it.

This changes everything. Anyone got a link to a pocket clip?

Edit: Google

u/pencilomatic · 1 pointr/notebooks

Okay, so I used an Expedition for a while doing some research in the sticks of Nicaragua and I tried a number writing implements (all with limited success, they all smudged a bit). If you use a pencil, I think it is best to use lead that is quite hard, since that won't smudge as much. Those also happen to be good for EDC, since they tend to have better point retention. A Staedtler Wopex is a good option, if you don't mind the weird, rubbery feel. But basically any pencil will work (including mechanical pencils) as long as the lead is fairly hard. Like /u/lightinthedark suggested, you can use a bullet point to make it more carry-able. I also use pencil caps, which are great as long as they're metal.

If you do want to use a pen, I had good luck with a ballpoint. Any basic ballpoint works pretty darn good; I used the FN one for a while (which is a Bic Clic). If you go for anything fancy it'll probably smudge, although I also used a space pen for a hot minute. Those don't hold up to being lost in warehouses though.
