Zebra are pretty well known for nice pens, Japanese made and good everyday writers.
I carry a pair of Zebra Z-grips and a rotring ticky pencil around with me for every day note taking. Cheap and (semi) disposable yet much better than a bic that leaks and fails all the time. My fountain pens are for hand in assignments and desk jewellery.
