I'll carry my newest one for a while but generally I carry my .308 chrome with green glitter blank because it's lighter and slimmer than the WSIII / Virage or Presimo- and because it raises eyebrows.

I alternate between 3 pens . 1st is slimline in black and copper corian. 2nd is an experimental unibody slimline in tulipwood both with copper finish on the metal parts. 3rd is a Gatsby in pauduk. All of them have some flaw that made them unsellable but they were too unique to trash.

I normally carry one of my own castings (comfort, jr gent or majestic) every day ... I also have a couple of Dave Herrmann's pens than get into the rotation.

I carry several pens in random rotation, two in my work uniform every day.
Work pens are a black Ti hybrid cigar in white M3 and a marksman falcon in M3 damascus, both with easyflow 9000 ink . I carry these because of weight and durability.
For old time sake there is 'old faithful' in the pen pocket but rarely gets used, a gunmetal civil war pen with no clip wrapped in lignum vitae filled with a write-in-the-rain ink stick. She was made way back when in the days before owning a drill press or the means to drill on the lathe.
In my off time I usually carry a marksman falcon in B&W ebony.

I carry a on piece wood slimline and a special bolt action I made with a .308 shell and projectile. I share the experience of being carried between the two of them, as if they know the difference. Quite often someone will ask a question about the pens.
Have fun and if not Pretend

I often pick one from my collection and carry that. I usually take a modified slimline that has a comfort grip because I blew out the bbl when turning it. It is not perfect but a nice looking pen.

I carry a CSUSA Long Click in Gator Jaw Bone and keep a PSI Cigar Click in my work bag as well. I have been using both daily for over a year.

Crappy pic but in the office I have this one with me most of the time...

Since it's one of the prototypes for my click pen and one of my Dichroic blanks, it says a lot about me. Hoping to get more work done on the design here shortly.
