Sure, computers, tablets and the like have all but made the art of writing extinct, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t a market for a good old-fashioned writing pen. After all, with fewer and fewer hand-written letters in circulation, taking the time to perfect the art of writing will make your statements even bolder. Because nothing screams class like a good writing pen, here are our top five picks.

1. Zebra F-701 Ballpoint Stainless Steel

This retractable ballpoint pen features a beautiful stainless steel design and a knurled knuckle grip for added comfort. The silent retractable plunger helps add to the overall design, making this pen unobtrusive.

2. uni-ball 207 Retractable Gel Pens, Micro Point

As an Amazon best-seller, it’s easy to see why the uni-ball pen is so popular. With an extra thick pen head, vibrant gel and beautifully bold color options, it’s one of the few pens to offer patented ink protection to keep your scribbles safe from water damage, fading and more.
