Mightier than the sword: 10 best pens
It’s National Stationery Week and the IndyBest team are celebrating the art of writing. These ballpoints, rollerballs and fountain pens will help you to make your mark on a page

Pens come in all shapes, sizes and styles but many of us often fall into the trap of grabbing the nearest biro instead of choosing a pen to last.
Add to that the increasing use of smartphones, tablets and computers from an early age and the art of writing is being forgotten.
To honour National Stationery Week, we’ve come up with our top pen picks, ranging from bespoke ballpoints to 2-in-1 stylus roller balls.
So put pen to paper and get ready to take notes…

If you’re looking for a stylish, weighty pen, the shocking pink S.T. Dupont will draw attention to your notemaking – and last you years. The Sheaffer VFM is a good choice for anyone after an affordable but stylish fountain pen. To combine writing with your technology, Wild & Wolf’s Paris ballpoint is a fun option – and may just inspire you to reach the heights of the Left Bank creatives.
