    Do I use my FPs? Lord have mercy, yes! They’re all I write with.

    I forget if I've commented. I use at least four FP's every day. Ballpoints and rollerballs are for suckers.

    Re: Do you actually use your fountain pen(s)?

    Honestly, not as much as I used to. For everyday writing/note-taking, I've gone over to Staples TRU RED quick-dry gel pens in blue and black. The ink flows almost as freely as water-based FP ink and dries very quickly, as advertised. And it's water-fast, too. At about a dollar a pen, they're great value for money. I only wish that Staples would start selling refills only -- because the pen bodies are reusable. And it would be wonderful to see some nice third-party pen bodies made for TRU RED cartridges. I know it sounds hokey, but these pens need to be tried to be believed.

    That said, I still use a fountain pen to sign documents. I've been a Noodler's fan ever since Nathan Tardif first started making Bulletproof Black, around 2004, but recently I've been enjoying Dr. Ph. Martin's Edge Blue, a pigment-based, archival ink designed for fountain pens. I have many pricey pens, but nowadays I find myself turning to my two TWSBI ECO FPs with 1.1mm stub nibs. At $29 a pop, these pens are another great bang for the buck.
