This Week’s Pens — 08.04.2014 – 08.08.2014

And, by “this week’s pens” I mean “last week’s pens” since I was away for the weekend and did not get a chance to post this on Saturday as I normally would…

  • Monday: Morning Glory Mach 3 Roller Ball Pen – 0.38 mm – Blue Black — This is my daily driver so it is not “new” to me. That said, it was a busy enough day that I did not have the time to think about what else to grab. I had this. I love it. I used it. Done.
  • Tuesday: Levenger True Writer Obsidian Rollerball Pen — I’ve had this pen for a few years and it has never disappointed me. I had not picked it up in a while and came upon it while digging around for another pen in my tray. This is a very nice pen. It feels solid and expensive (yet, the price is quite reasonable considering the quality) and has a nice weight to it. I don’t feel like Levenger gets enough credit for their brand name pens but I have several and love every one.
  • Wednesday: Pilot Metropolitan — Another exceptionally busy day. I grabbed the Pilot Metropolitan that I reviewed a couple of weeks ago. I’ve kind of fallen for it.
  • Thursday: Morning Glory Mach 3 Roller Ball Pen (0.38 mm) Brown — I’m head over heels about the blue-black version of this pen so I thought I would try some other colors. Since I liked the browns on previous experiments in colored pens I thought it natural to try this one. As this particular brand and model of pen is a normal go-to for me, so you know I love it as a pen, I’ll just discuss the color. It’s a good brown. I don’t like it nearly as much as the Pilot Juice Coffee Brown that I used a couple of weeks back. But, it’s nice enough and, well, I like the pen it comes in more than the Juice.
  • Friday: Parker Jotter 60th Anniversary Ballpoint Pen – Gray Green Body — Made in celebration of the anniversary of Parker’s iconic ballpoint pen. I’m not normally a ballpoint guy. But, if you are going to use one, might as well use one that makes you feel like Roger Sterling on Mad Men. I can say it was fun to use just for the visual appeal alone.

Remember, I usually post what I’m using each day on my personal Twitter account and use the hashtag [#todayspen]7. I welcome all of you to join in. I love seeing what other people are using (and check that tag every day). Who knows, if I see something I’m curious about I might reach out to you and ask you to write a guest review. Fame and fortune await (well, not really).
