I prefer the grand American names for the reasons that they are well-designed, high-quality and often not too expensive especially compared to modern luxe pens.

I also like some of the Italian labels like Delta and OMAS.

I prefer pencils, seriously. I have a luxe pen and mechanical pencil but more often than not, I use a mechanical pencil.

I've not thoroughly explored the great world of writing instruments. Currently, the decidedly non-luxe Lamy 2000 is my favorite, though I'd love to get my hands on an Omas or any of the higher end models of the Japanese companies. There are really too many pens out there.

I have always preferred a pencil

Hakase offers a genuine tortoise-shell fountain pen that I would like to get. I'd also like the '40s era Eversharp that was made out of solid platinum.

I use a Staedtler lead holder and a collection of Rapidographs.

I have a montblanc that's alright, but for my money I think nobody makes a better pen than Papermate.

I also have several LAMY 2000 inc some LTD (sterling silver & ceramic) Looking at some Parker 51 & 100's & soma Waterman's (as trillogy if i can get complete sets) Like the vintage Parker & Waterman that are jugent/art nouvau. Def. not Montblanc, although some vintage pieces are nice

I'm currently using a Nakimi/Pilot pen that was really cheap. I'd like to upgrade to something else in the future though.

I use either a Nakaya, reclaimed wood pencils, or a Smythson pencil.
