Gear we Like: Pens

The topic of pens used in the field came up recently.

Fountain pens came out as the top preferred brand of pens to use, with Kaweco as the top preferred brand. It was a tie between the Kaweco Liliput Fountain Pen - Brass Wave and the Kaweco Supra Fountain Pen which comes in both brass and stainless steel.

Ball point pens ranged in flavor and type, but small size and durability were preferred qualities. The Fisher Space Pen featured in a number of kits. It’s small size, durability, and ability to find customized pens to suit one’s tastes made this the premiere ballpoint pen in our kits. Additionally, Swedish firm Ballograf has a number of ballpoint options to fill your needs. A cheap option if you lose your pens often is the Pilot G - Tec C4 Gel Microtip Rollerball. 

And lastly, for those who like their writing implements to feature graphite, the Midori Bullet Pencil reigned supreme. Runner up in the pencil category was the Faber Castell Document 9610 Indelible Pencil

A notebook and a writing implement is required for accurate note taking and calculations when using the Wndsn product line. 

Remember: new year, new you, new journal and writing instrument.
