The Perfect Pen

I'm on a quest for the perfect pen. Perfectly looking pen, really. I have the perfect pen (in my opinion) in the Uniball Vision, but it's not the prettiest. And this one needs to look a certain way because it's going to debut with something special at this year's stationery show. Very exciting. I have done some research online, ordered a whole bunch from Jet Pens, and consulted Brad at The Pen Addict. While I'd love to use something fancy, it's just not in the budget for the project. I'm getting closer, but not quite there yet. Do you have the perfect pen? Or the perfectly looking pen?

The Pilot Hi Tec C is BY FAR, my most favorite pen. I fell in love with it 20 years ago (shows how old I am)! But it writes very smoothly and comes in such different mm. I used to prefer the 0.3, but over time, have moved over to 0.4. The 0.3 writes just like a pencil (it's that thin!). I don't think it's sold in the US still, but can find it at some Japanese stationery stores.

My favorite pen is the R.S.V.P. in black.

I really like Le Pen. The colors are pretty simple and straightforward, and the design is just classic. I also find that they're not as likely to smear as other pens. I do wish that they came with a wider tip as well, though.
