The best affordable pen  SEP 12 2013

Aided by four experts, The Wirecutter goes long on pens and picks a few winners.

The vast majority of people don't particularly care what they write with, but given that the difference between an awesome pen and a mediocre one is just a couple bucks, perhaps they should. A decent pen is something that just about anyone can buy and if you do a lot of handwriting, a marginally better writing experience compounded over hours of scribbling adds up to a significant improvement. And god forbid you end up not liking it, you're down just a few dollars -- it's not the end of the world.

From this article I also learned that there are Kickstarter projects for alternate pen bodies that take popular pen cartridges.
