Chapter three of my Simplified manual says I should always remove the pen cap when writing, but doesn’t give any reasons. Maybe it’s because a capless pen is lighter, thus easier to carry across the page. I always write with the cap on for two reasons. First, I don’t want to lose the cap; second, it feels wierd to write with a such a short instrument as a capless pen. Do Pilot Precise caps really weigh that much? Does anyone actually write with the cap off?
Shorthand: isn’t it about time?
