Best Pen Brands in the World
Trying to figure out who makes the highest quality at the best price.
- •Sharpie very fine pointA really good pen also affordable by the box. Very dark and crisp writing, and cool pen design. Downside: bleeds through if you want to use both sides of a paperSuggested by @bjnovak
- •Uniball fine pointMy go to favorite pen. Dark and crisp without completely bleeding through the paper to the other side. Affordable on Amazon and elsewhere.Suggested by @bjnovak
- •Le PenThe Audrey Hepburn of pens. Felt tip.
- •Uni-Ball Jetstream .7mm - solid everyday penSuggested by @rachelleigh
- •Zebra Surari .5mm or the Zebra Sarasa .7mm or the Pilot Acroball 5mm - all write extremely smooth and have similar featuresSuggested by @rachelleigh

- •MUJI pens all day, everyday.Suggested by @bobbyhundreds
- •Muji 0.5 gel ink penJust fine enough and doesn't smear. Simple design. No frills. Ideal to use at work.Suggested by @rachel
- •LamySeriously great pens of varying types. Made in Germany since 1930s.Suggested by @dev
- •Prosaic but great. Pilot black xxfine. My go to for note takingSuggested by @ouizoid
- •The pens at Milk Studios LA. Literally the best -very thin tip, black ink, gray packagingSuggested by @sarahschussheim
- •Pilot VBallI like VBall over Pilot Precise V5/V7, even though Precise is way cuter and was a solid conversation starter in college. VBall's ink comes out crisp yet buttery smooth, no skips or rando splotches. Will leave a little smudge if you touch it too soon, but this is actually kind of sexy.
- •Pilot fountain pensThe everyday fountain pen! These are low key and affordable and write really well. Some are disposable, some refillable. In high school my dad gave me the Pilot Varsity in pink, purple, and turquoise to try out before he let me touch his fountain pen collection.
