I was asked by @dancoopermedia on Twitter the other day for a pen recommendation, specifically, if I could have only one retractable pen, what would it be? I didn't have to think very long before mentioning that I would pick the Pilot G-2 0.38mm and be a happy camper. The pen writes great, is durable, and very affordable. If I need to get something done and need a pen that I know isn't going to give be any trouble, the G-2 0.38mm is the pen I grab.
So that got me thinking on a broader scale - if I could choose just one pen to take with me on a desert island, what would it be? I have been hard pressed to come up with an answer other than the aforementioned G-2. I love plastic tip pens like the Sharpie Pen, but I don't think it would wear well. Same with fountain pens - too high maintenance for me, but I know many of you can't live without your favorite fountain pen. My favorite Uni-Ball Signo DX would be a good choice, but there is just something about the G-2 that says "MacGyver".
So what will it be? What is your desert island pen?
