No one gives any thought to pens until they stop working. If you’ve ever had a pen jam up or run out of ink just before a client signs a contract, you’ll remember stifling a spike of panic as you casually hand him a spare. If you have the Zebra F-301 pen, pen failure will be a thing of the past. This retractable ballpoint pen is only $2.72, and it will outlast any other pen you will buy. Its stainless steel body and checkered finger grip give the pen a professional and understated style. The F-301 pen performs well at all times, even on thermal paper that you get at restaurants. Why use the gunky, greasy pen that the waiter has? Even if you don’t think you’ll need it, take this pen everywhere you go and you’ll be glad you did. ReStockIt.com has the correct refill for this pen, as well as a wide selection of pens in case you prefer a fine-point version or one with blue ink.
