I have a Mont Blanc which I transfer to each bag I use - and I never, ever let anyone else use it!
Me too. I am very superstitious with my pen. I won't sign documents without it.
I actually have two -- one as backup. Last year I stupidly left my pen on my desk and someone walked off with it. I was SO angry. I worked on a floor with about 100 people so who knows where it went. I had to go to the Montblanc store and buy a new one immediately.
My husband uses Mountblanc fountain pens exclusively, they are nice but I don't like fountain pens myself.
I love collecting pens, but I like the quirky give-away/souvenir/weirder-the-better kinds and have about 40 with probably a total value of $75. I enjoy using them and don't have to worry about loss/theft because they aren't worth much.
My ex-boss gave me a gold-plated Cross pen (not engraved) for my company anniversary and my husband bought me a Fisher Space Pen that was I think around $35 but they are my only good ones. I carry the space pen in my handbag (good for grocery shopping because I can cross stuff off my list at any angle!).
So the question of the day:
1. Do you have a fancy pen?
2. How often do you use (if you do?)
3. Do you know anyone with a fancy pen?
I just carry a regular blue pen to use when I sign for things (always have one in my bag anyway as I use a paper diary). Not a big loss then if I lose it. I don't think it's considered particularly important nowadays, I wouldn't judge someone on their pen. But having a nice pen isn't a bad thing! Whatever floats your boat
I have a Montblanc Princess Grace of Monaco ballpoint that I carry everywhere. I love it!
And because I've nearly lost my Starwalker, I now carry my current pen in a Montblanc hard-sided pen pouch-- it gives it more substance so I don't have to worry about it falling out of my handbag, and it's harder to misplace.
I think I was the only 7th grader using a Parker Jotter to do his writing assignments. I then started using Parker Vectors and over the years used Cross and Shaeffer. To me, Mont Blanc was more image. Some of their $200+ pens are made out of resin (ie plastic). For that much, I better get metal barrels.
I have some novelty japanese pens but I don't like using them to write with just to look at! In high school, I used to have a few different fancy fountain pens to take notes with. Now I teach but mostly little ones so the chalk and marker are my tools of trade!
I have a Montblanc pen I don't use too often. It was gifted to me when I got my big promotion. It's too big to use it...
And I carry a Cartier small pen in my agenda. This one is sed every day.
Also I have a tiny Tiffany pen in my make up case. Just in case.
