    Semi-related question for this thread, apols if its too off topic. Headed to closing on a new place on Friday. What pen did y'all bring to sign yourself into hock with the bank for the forseeable future when homebuying time came?

    Congratulations Joe! Staying in Berkeley?

    When I bought my first house, my head was filled with so many thoughts, and pure excitement, I never even considered what I would sign the final documents with. Whatever my lawyer handed me I suppose. I was a very young man then though, crazy times.

    Fast forward to when I just bought my current house. In a post-covid world here in NYC land, everything was signed electronically, only had to show up at my lawyer's office to verify it was me, no pens involved sadly.

    Enjoy the day, and best of luck with your new place.

    Congrats. I would still bring a pen because even though most forms are electronic these days, there is always something that requires a "wet signature".

    Marriage license: Cross ATX because it came in the same light blue shade that matched my wedding tie.


    1st house and refinance: ACME Blueprint rollerball because we thought it was a good "house theme".

    We're also closing on a property on Friday. I picked the perfect pen. A Sailor 1911S Maki-e with a beautiful dark blue ink. The attorney just told us not to come in and we'll do everything over docusign. I'm glad to not have to drive to his office, but man I really wanted to sign an important document with that pen.

    This showed up yesterday: Tombow Zoom 505 Ballpoint Pen

    It should be a great daily to leave around and use when I can't find any of my "good" pens. It takes a Parker G2 refill so I can continue to experiment with many new kinds of ink refills (i.e. ballpoint/oil, ballpoint/low viscosity, hybrid, and gel). I really like the size, shape, and especially the rubber grip on this type of Tombow pen.

    I owned the Tombow Ultra Rollerball Pen for many years but got sick and tired of the leaky and proprietary refills that were difficult to find. I finally gave up and got rid of it so hopefully the ballpoint model will give me less grief (assuming I use good Parker G2 refills).

    Ive had a 149 Diplomat since about 1982, or 1983. Like new. Instead of a drawer full of dried-out Bic pens, I just keep the Diplomat. Smooth, and relaxing to use it. Makes my cabin high in the mountains a little more civilized.

    Speaking as someone with arthritis, I think fountain pens are the best option when hands get arthritic. And the best for cursive versus script lettering. With a nice ink, a squiggle becomes a multi-purpose letter and can look nicely elided instead of awkwardly missed.

    Sensa, the world's most comfortable pen.

    My father, a rheumatologist and avid fountain user for as long as I remember (as well as many other rheumatologists in his group), often recommend these to people with Arthritis. They come in ballpoint, rollerball, and fountain pen styles.

    I do love a fancy plume.

    Seeing as I have a French name....I love a sport that has a big race in France....I also have a French Pen: Recife. Nothing fancy, but out of the way and nifty.

    I'm boring in that the Mont Blanc, that I took out of my mom's pen collection cup 35 years ago, is my fav. I cracked the barrel holding it while stapling something at work. I'm too lazy to fix it.
    De-conditioned!

    I did something similar with one of mine recently. The repairs are actually inexpensive when compared to the current pen prices. I dropped it off at a MontBlanc store, I had it back in less than 4 weeks, and I think I paid about $100.
