There’s lots of discussion amongst Moleskine fans about which pens are best for use on Moleskine paper. Here’s the most exhaustive list of pen reviews I’ve found, at a blog called Sandscribbler. The author’s favorites:
- Uni-ball Signo RT 0.38
The best Moleskine pen that I’ve found so far.
- Pilot G-2 05 and the
Uni-ball Signo 207 Micro 0.5
Very nice alternative pens, if a .38 feels too “scratchy” to you. You can’t go wrong with either one.
- Uni-ball Signo 207
The tip on this pen is a bit wide for me for everyday use, but I love using this pen when writing my signature.
I picked up a Pilot G-2 05 and a Uniball Signo 207 Micro. Of the two, I personally prefer the Uniball by far. I found that the Pilot would often skip in my Moleskine, unless I was pressing down harder than I usually do when writing. But I don’t think either of these pens beats my longtime favorite, the Uniball Onyx Micro.
