Bolt action ballpoint pen in stainless steelArguably, the best pen for everyday carry is a ballpoint pen in stainless steel. Stainless steel is possibly the hardiest metal which means it can last for generations. It can, however, feel quite weighty so it’s a great option for people who write a lot and have good wrist strength. A ballpoint pen is a fantastic all-round pen, too. Make sure you always have a few refills in your EDC kit so you’re never without ink.
