One of my absolute favorite pens! It's a more compact size and is retractable so it's nice to carry in your purse without worrying about it getting on everything. They're more pricey than your typical stick pens, but you can buy refills for them and the nice stainless steel barrel will last forever. I love the fine point ones, they don't get inky residue on your hands and the ink dries very quickly. There is also a clip on it if you like to wear your pens on the side of your pants pocket (nurses!) or on your shirt.
