Who EDCs a pen, and what pen do you EDC? :P

I carry a Fisher chrome Bullet Pen clipped in the fold of my wallet.

I have a chrome Fisher Bullet with PDA stylus and I love it.  My only concern is that the clip fell off causing me to almost lose it one day.  It fell and hit the street as I was getting out of my work truck and I didn't see it till I got back.  The stylus point was a little mangled and I never did find the clip.  Since then I haven't been carrying it because it was a gift from a fellow SOSAK member and I don't want to lose it.

Me too.  Black fisher space pen in the other pocket of my mission wallet.  I also carry one of their zero gravity pens.  I recently retired my origninal bullet space pen.  I carried it every day for 5+ years.  I did not need a new one, but I wanted another one  :D.

I'm absolutely addicted to the Pilot Mini G-2 pens... I carry one all the time.

I cut down partially used ballpoint pens for fun (see photo) and carry one as well as a Zebra Telescopic.

Those cut downs are COOL!  Nifty idea.  :)

I carry a telescoping zebra, moded to get rid of the clip.

I am thinking it might be time for a new Fisher pen... I am thinking a black one this time.  Anyone know how well the black coating (or anodizing, or whatever it is) holds up?

Def,

I have carried the black fisher bullet space pen for years and the finish has held up fine.  Just note that it spends most of its time protected in the one of the pouches of my mission wallet.  Becareful with some of the bullet pens.  Sometimes their clips need a little crazy glue to keep them in place.  This is the one I carry.

Yeah, I probably should have epoxied mine while I still had it.  I like the pen alot, but I am a little disapointed in the complete lack of response I got from Fisher about it.  I sent them an e-mail about it a few weeks ago and never heard back.  I think I will give them the benefit of the doubt and try calling them this week, but I am not certain I'd rate their customer service as highly as their product.

I had a Fisher refill start skipping and called them - sent the refill back and got a new one within a week , plus postage for sending it to them.


Why do I carry a 45 ?
Because they don't make a 46 !

I think I am going to try calling them...  e-mails have a nasty habit of disapearing sometimes.  I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

I carry a matte black Fisher Bullet clipped to my wallet.  I've had it for about 6 months, and there are just two tiny chips in the finish where you can see the brass shine through.  In retrospect, I wish I had spent a bit more $ and got one of the brushed titanium finish ones.

I carry a small aluminum note holder (3" x 4 1/2") with a metal twist pen. It is very useful when you need to write something like directions, emails, phones or things like that. It's very cheap, just $7.00

I EDC a classic chrome fisher bullet space pen.  My wife got it for me about 9-10 years ago?? been a long time.  Went through countless refills in it and lost the pocket clip but it still works great :)
