    I've got a 146 and a 149. Both are great writers! No special treatment, they get used like any other. But, they are competing with about 80 other pens to get in the rotation, so they can go months in storage... I'd say that they get used a bit more than the average pen in the collection though.

    A former high school classmate gave me a chrome Cross ballpoint pen one year for Christmas.

    I left it on a counter at a city office while looking at papers I was signing. When I noticed it was not in my shirt pocket, I went back and happily learned they had put it aside in case I returned to retrieve it.

    As a Navy officer, our working uniforms had flap pockets with pen loops, so losing the Montblanc Classique and MB rollerball was not a concern.

    Since then, I've managed to hang on to my Montblancs and Pelikans. Perhaps the money I invested in them motivates me to keep better track of them.

    My EDC is a [Black Ice] Rhodia Dot pad No. 12 in a leather Rhodia cover that I bought from Vickerey.com. It's usually in a side pocket in my cargo pants. If traveling, it goes in the camera bag or a vintage Banana Republic correspondent's bag.

    When Rhodia Drive interviewed me a few years ago, I mentioned the No. 12 Dot Pad. The link to R Drive no longer works, so I reposted the interview on my blog.

    Some years ago I figured I'd figure out the MB thing. I got a 145, 146 and 149 (the last two from the split-ebonite feed era). I got rid of the 145 (too small), even after I had Pendleton Brown grind a butter-line stub, and 149 (too big). The 146 was just right, and it's constantly inked and used every day - as mentioned in this "reviews, revisited" thread.

    It's amazing how much panic one honest man can spread among a multitude of hypocrites.
