I'm in a meeting yesterday and see a senior executive, in a great suit, great shoes, beautiful watch break open a very nice leather binder and begin taking notes with... a disposable pen. I know they have their place. I grab them from all my hotel rooms and keep them in the car, leave them around the house for my kids, etc. But "Life is too short to write with crappy instruments." Maybe it's that writing is a lost art form. I'm not even talking about formal "Thank You" notes and the like, much less letters... but who actually writes anymore? That being said, let's hear about your instruments of choice. My current "carry pens" are a rotation (based on my mood) from: A couple of Mont Blanc Meisterstuck (rollerball, black) and a classic old Pelikan.
