    Default EVERYDAY CARRY SET

    Hi all,

    What would be in your essential everyday carry set?

    Mine I'm thinking would be a FP, BP, mech pencil and doc marker / highlighter.

    Should cover every situation I think.

    Cheers

    Easy.

    Three fountain pens: one with blue, one with black and one with blue black ink.

    Today, as an example:

    • Conid Minimalistica Ti <FCI> - Visconti Blue
    • Sheaffer Valiant II <F> - Sailor Do-You
    • Lamy 2000 <MCI> - Akkerman Ijzer-Galnoten

    Well my carry is for a highschool student so yeah:

    Parker 51 (Fine nib with Waterman Encre Bleu Mystère)-Note taking and any quick writing.

    Parker 75 (Medium nib with classic Parker Quink)-Generally used for longer writing sessions for my English or History class.

    Parker Sonnet (Medium nib with a delightful Iroshizuku Autumn Leaves)-Used for proofreading, correcting and any edits.

    Parker Jotter (black gel insert)-A handy pen to lend if anyone asks for a pen.

    Lastly, a Pentel Sharp Kerry for Math, and it has a cool fountain pen esq look.

    I quite like the Sharp Kerry. What do you use to carry them penmainiac?

    I'm a Construction Project Manager hence my set - FP for office, BP for site (and for lending others) & the rest for annotating docs & drawings.

    Well right now, I have a Bordeaux Rickshaw Hemingway pen roll, and it does the job quite nicely.

    I sketch in spare moments and also journal, so my ultimate minimum is a Noodler's flex pen paired with a water brush. Ink for only one pen is a blue black gray, such as monteverde azure noir or fuyu syogun or kaweco smokey grey. If a 2nd pen fits in then I add a fude pen (jinhao or duke) with brown ink such as noodler's Kiowa Pecan or platinum sepia black. My favorite pencil is the caran d'ache 2mm which is light and classy, with hexagonal body, and has a built in sharpener so it works for writing and drawing.

    For outside the house:
    Pilot Vanishing Point in black with a fine nib. Right now it's got a blue Pilot cartridge installed.
    For note, Field Notes. I use the Signature Sketch Book because the Strathmore paper in it does not bleed.

    I usually carry three fountain pens -- one in my shirt pocket and two in a leather carrying case in another pocket somewhere. I also invariably carry no ball point pens at all. I swap the fountain pens around as the urge hits me, but I always try to carry at least one inked with a water resistant or waterproof ink, preferably one of the De Atramentis document inks, which I am just cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs about.

    Generally one (just one) of the following: Sailor 1911 Tangerine (Large) w/ med. stub nib; or Pelikan M101n w/med. stub nib; or my Conid Regular Bulkfiller Flat Top w/med. ti nib. The Sailor and Pelikan pens are loaded with Iro. yama-guri; the Conid is on a steady diet of Iro. asa-gao.

    (Oh yes, and a cheap bp for the occasional clerk who may need one to mark up my checks at the grocery.)

    I tend to carry more than I need, I had three fountain pens at work today among other things, but if I'm just walking around and keeping it to a minimum:

    Fountain pen with a fine or fine/medium nib, with a practical blue or blue black ink. Typically one of my better Pilots (CH 91 or 92) or a trusted vintage model such as my Parker Vacumatic.
    Mechanical pencil, .7 mm or thicker leads.
    Fisher Bullet Space Pen (carried in a pants pocket), seldom used, but occasionally useful for writing on bad paper, in awkward positions, or lending to someone.
    A small notebook with FP friendly paper. Currently a little Rhodia one that fits in a shirt pocket.

    There's also always another Fisher Space Pen in my car, along with a small mechanical pencil. I can't remember the last time I was caught without something to write with or on.

    I always carry a FC45 in my jean pocket. Then one to maybe three pens in a case in my purse depending on the days activities. I have a Romulus pen I keep a 1.5 Jowo nib on that I carry when I have to write duplicate checks. The choice of carry pens in my purse depends on my mood that day.

    I usually carry 2 pens in my shirt pocket: one with a stiff XF or F nib (usually a Parker 51) for use on crappy paper and another with a semiflex M or B nib (usually a Pelikan) for writing on nice paper or signing documents.

    I also use the P51 for those occasions in which someone asks for a ballpoint. Invariably the reaction is hilarious!
