Stabilo Boss Original Highlighter Pen - Yellow - STABILO 70-24

These highlighters are my favorites. Hands down. The colors are excellent. The lines are dry enough that they don't usually show through the other side. The cap is kinda hard to pull off, but a bit of a twist pops them right off. The cap is tight enough that they stay wet for years if you're not using them. They also seem to last a long time. I still have a few that I got in college (2002 grad), and they're only a little dry.
Pilot Envelope Address Writing Gel Ink Pen - Broad - PILOT MNA-12MB

I ordered the broad and fine versions of this pen, and they're pretty similar. The broad is really broad. The ink is very smooth. Maybe too smooth, as I found it kind of skating across the envelopes. It's also super-dark when you get full-coverage of the paper. I found that I had a sort of trough in the middle of my letters from where the ball touches the paper. It does tend to bleed and feather, but only on regular paper. You don't probably want to write with these all the time. It's just fine on an envelope. I use the Broad on bubble mailers all the time and it's satisfying.

I'm not an artist/technical drawer, but I keep buying these pens. They're good for a little bit of writing at a time, but they're not comfortable for extended periods. The grip section has a few too many ridges in it and the point is a bit too fine. The .5mm tip is better, IMHO.
Lamy Tipo Roller Ball Pen - Medium Point - Orange Body - Black Ink - LAMY L337OE

I got one of these about a year ago. It's a fine pen. I really like the look and feel of it. The ink cartridge is pretty okay, as well. I'm not a massive fan of rollerballs, but this one is perfectly serviceable. The problem with the pen is that the knock is tricky. If you don't press it just right it won't stay down. There's a little hole in the barrel that the end of the clip has to set in to, and it won't do that unless you press it just right. It's not hard to learn, but if you hand it to someone who doesn't know the trick they will be frustrated by it. Problem, or fun party-trick.

The box that the pen comes in is pretty awesome. I keep it on my desk to display the pen. It kinda looks like a rocketship.
Uni-ball Vision Needle Roller Ball Pen - Micro Point - Black - SANFORD 1734918

A pretty good rollerball. It writes finer than a Pilot v5, I think. Always starts cleanly. No problems with this pen so far.
J. Herbin Fountain Pen Ink - 30 ml Bottle - Bleu Nuit (Night Blue) - J. HERBIN H130-19

A very smooth ink, and generally well-behaved. It was a little too wet in my Pelikano's (really wet) nib, but it works really well in our other fountain pens. The color is something like denim (as someone else said), but it's a very light denim. Definitely dark enough to use every-day.
