If I could find a good pencil kit I liked and could modify for a soapstone and awl I might have to make a set of foo foo marking instruments for myself.

I use a calligraphy pen with a fraktur font for my brew records. Looks cool and keeps me in practice.

I picked up a 'knock-around' pen today - The Noodler's Ahab with the flex nib. I've been feeding it Noodler's Operation Overlord Orange but have several other orange-red hued ink to try in it. Its fun!

Anyone else collect and habitually write with fountain pens?
I'm not into fountain pens, but I thought you might like to see this:

Wow thanks for the video! Very interesting.... I'd like to go to a pen show someday! N_G

Edit - here is the next one near me: The 2014 Philly pen show.

I have a pair of Lamy fountain pens that I write with almost exclusively. I'm prone to cramping due to applying too much pressure, an using a FP solves that completely. You barely have to touch the page.

The real trouble is when you discover ink. There are so many brands an colors, each of which just might be slightly closer to perfection than your previous favorite...dangerous stuff.
