High-quality writing utensils?
I'm interested in seeking out high-quality writing utensils to carry in my Super Ego briefcase. It's really important to me to have reliable, quality pens and mechanical pencils carried with me.
I've already discovered discussions on this forum about the Space Pen. I'm interested in checking out other possibilities.
For the mechanical pencil, I'm looking for something with a brand name that has a reputation for superior durability, quality and reliability. I would prefer to find something with a "fat grip" section near the writing point and a good mechanism for installing replacement leads. I like mechanical pencils for taking notes; they're erasable and glide on paper easier than ordinary wood pencils. But cheap mechanical pencils aren't reliable. Replacing the leads in them is problematic at best.
Are there any really good mail-order sources for high quality writing instruments? If so, I would appreciate it if links could be posted here.
Thanks in advance.
