    I'd go for an ST Dupont. They're really nice, and well made. Better than Montblanc quality.

    I use the MB14 fountain pen, which you can get off forums and such and a 'black pearl' aluminum and steel Dunhill ballpoint. The Dunhill gets lent to people who would destroy your fountain nib. Its steel body also means you can break a window or something with it if need be or use it as a kubaton but is less ridiculous looking than a Surefire or Uzi pen.

    I'm not a fan of modern day Montblancs, but probably purely for aesthetic reasons. On the other hand, I have a real affinity for accessories from the 60's and the MB's from that era I think are really fantastic. I've been using a Montblanc No. 14 for the past year as my daily writer/sketcher and I couldn't be happier. For design geeks, it has the added cache of being designed by Albrecht Graf Goertz, of BMW 507 fame.

    Stolen google image since I'm too lazy to take a pic:

    Not as baller as your vintage MB but I love my vintage Parker "51" with a similar design minus the design royalty pedigree.

    Pilot ftw, indeed. Not just baller ($10 K) but AAF: [​IMG] As others have said, though, if you want a great pen, buy a Pelikan.

    Vanishing Point is my daily user. Not as baller as Mont Blanc or Dunhill, but writes great.

    Hilton, Mariott, W, Four Seasons, Hyatt--all make great pens. If you lose one, tomorow another appears by magic on your desk.

    That shark pen will go well with the D&G tiger tshirt.

    Hermes Man - Have you tried asking Bijan for pens?

    His style is exactly what you are looking for.

    Signing can be a little safer, depending on where you're using your card, of course.

    51 Looks great! I'm a big fan and I've been looking for a "flighter" version for a while. Also love the parker 50 Falcon.

    I use one of three different pens and I like them all (They are all fountain pens)

    1. A 1940s Parker Duovac

    2. A Mont Blanc Noblesse from the 70s

    3. A really basic cheap Shaeffer

    I would recommend any of these pens, except maybe the Shaeffer if you wanted to look cool.
