If you love pens like I do...

As my all time favorite comedian, Mitch Hedberg, once said:
“I bought a seven dollar pen because I always lose pens and I got sick of not caring.”

I have always been on the lookout for a great pen. I used to have one that I wrote scripts with (Remember the silky ink on "Karmacorp" Anne?). I even painted it to "make it my own." That company started producing shit ink replacements after a few years, so it's now rotting away. I used to love the Pilot G2, but then I found gel inks to be very inconsistent. Recently I heard about Mont Blanc pens. Supposedly they're the best ever, but cost $200. I've since seen models costing $350 and $1000!!!!

The trick is the refill, which is more like $8 (or $13 for a 2 pack). Check out this Instructable on how to alter the refill to fit the shell of a Pilot G2. A quick snip off the end, and you're G2 is a Mont Blanc.

Do it now, because they'll likely catch wind and make an impossibly weird refill cartridge.

If you love a pen, circumcise it. If it writes better, it's your forever. If it doesn't, it was never meant to be.
