the first pen i ever made, a slimline woodcrafters promotional, in my shirt pocket and a schetcher in my overalls. the schetcher only last a week or so as someone always buys them. i have learned to make the pencils from materials off the building that i am working on. i recently made one from the demo material at the B.A.M.C. burn ward, but thought who would want to remember that place so i keep it back at the shop.

Favorite carry pen is a modified Euro with no center band. Has spalted pecan upper blank, and black acrylic lower. When it gets lost in a shirt, pants, or coat pocket, my next one is a black titanium Virage with deep purple acrylic blank. It is cuurently lost somewhere in house, so I've gone to a Retro ballpoint in crabapple blank from Ausralia. I think I have one more completed pen around here if this latest one goes missing.

New Years resolution has to be getting better of keeping track of pens I carry, in addition to the obvious ones like losing weight, etc.

I generally carry two pens with me. A ballpoint and a fountain pen.

I carry a slimline with a watermoccasin snake skin inlay on a maple burl body. I always carry a pen everywhere I go to advertise what I do as a hobbie. Someone also once said carry a "Good One" because that's what your doing advertising. Remember you want people to see your best not your mistakes.

I keep all my "first" pens. First of a new style and I keep all mistakes. This gives me a choice of pens to carry on me.

I've been carrying my first mulberry/turquoise slimline for about 2 years now.

Sharon, I don't blame you. I'd carry that one too.

Default Absolutely!

For everyday use (and I always have a pen on me!) I carry the very first 24K Slimline pen/pencil set I turned from a pair of light/dark PSI EZ Blank Laminates. They look barely OK, but I love them because they were the first. As a substitute teacher, I need something and these fill the bill nicely. Plus the kids love the fact that I made them myself. For special occasions, I carry a 24k Twist Gatsby in White Crushed Pearl.

I generally carry one of two when I have a shirt pocket... the first is an olive wood euro... the first pen I ever made and the second is a deer antler click pen... also the first I made of that style.... this one I've had to chase truckers to their trucks to get back after allowing them to use it to sign off manifests and bills of lading.... both of these pens are more than 10 years old.
