When I think of pens Parker comes to my mind. It is in fact one of the first brands that I remember using. Parker has been in business since 1988 and they have really mastered the art of making pens. They offer a wide variety of models and prices. These pens can be found everywhere from Walmart to writing instruments specialty stores.
Here is the Parker Vector Roller ball. They offer the Vector model in roller ball, fountain pen, ball point and mechanical pencil. They come in a wide variety of finishes and designs and every year they have special editions.
The vector is a well made pen that will last forever. It is made stainless steel with a glossy scratch resistant surface. They even come with a 2 year warranty. The ink usually comes in black, but is easy to find refills in blue and black, they offer 2 additional colors but they are difficult to find.
