I know someone who is looking for the best pen to write small notes in the margin of his Gemorrah.
He is currently using a Pilot G-2 0.38 gel pen.
Any Learners here have a favorite pen, of which you would like to extoll its virtues?

I used to write in all of my Sefarim. Now I jot all of my comments (which aren’t many) in a spiral notebook.August 12, 2012 3:43 am at 3:43 am #890933tajikpashutMember

If you’re going with a pen, the thinnest you can get is definitely the best, so I’ll second that.August 13, 2012 8:07 am at 8:07 am #890940RebRYMember

I used to use a mechanical pencil. 0.2mm lead. Super fine writing.August 13, 2012 4:09 pm at 4:09 pm #890942RSRHMember
Try a Micron 005. It is an artist pen that I use for my calligraphy/safrus work, but also to write in seforim. Can’t be beat, but has to be used with a gentle touch – otherwise you will destroy the tip very quickly.
.20 mm line width, and no need to press on the pen like a ball point, and no risk of ink bleeding like with a gel pen.
