I’m curious what everyone’s favorite shorthand-writing tools are? I’ve always enjoyed fountain pens (especially with Noodler’s permanent inks) but I don’t always find them speed-oriented.
Lately I’ve been playing with gel pens, to see how I like those for note-taking. I’ve been trying out a Uni-Ball #207, which came highly recommended for its permanence and archival qualities, but I found the ink would sometimes drop out on some of my outlines (maybe this is because of my left-handedness… I’m a “hook over” lefty… maybe I’m holding the pen at a weird angle that doesn’t allow the ink to flow as freely as it might).
Besides day-to-day writing, I’m interested in trying to find the best paper/pen/ink combo that reproduces (scans) well. What do you love to use?
