Thought we could use a thread for sharing pictures of our writing gear, pens, pencils, notepads, etc.

Just got this for Christmas -- a Karas Kustoms Retrakt pen. Takes a Pilot G2 refill, and can modified to fit a few other refill types, too. Looks like a real beast in the tumbled raw aluminum finish, but nice and light weight!

I'm a big fan of fountain pens and carry one daily. Here are a few of my favorites:

TWSBI Vac Mini (current EDC)


Pilot Vanishing Point (Black Carbonesque)


Pilot Custom 74


I also have a Hinderer Investigator pen in blue aluminum with a Fisher space pen insert that is extremely durable.

I've been thinking about getting that exact same pen. How well does it write? Hopefully as good as it looks!
@Ktbartholomew22 The Retrakt writes very nicely with the Pilot G2 refill. The width of the pen is a bit bigger than the standard G2 plastic barreled pen, but it's still pretty comfortable. The copper and brass bodies look cool, but I think the weight would be a little tough. The aluminum body though -- it feels super light compared to how it looks!

Yea the aluminum is the one I plan to get. I just have to go ahead and order it instead of thinking about it every day!
