And importantly, the space pen is a commercial product. NASA didn't spend any money developing it. They just buy them - just like the Russians. You can buy them too! They're not even that expensive.

I'm personally into using pocket-sized notebooks purely for vocabulary, so that I can scribble some down on the go and during slow moments at work. I mostly write down things that I get wrong in ankidroid to solidify it in my mind, or any new words that I come across that I can add to anki later. However, if you have terrible handwriting like I do and you feel that handwriting Japanese is important to you, a pocket notebook isn't going to do you any favours.

My vocab system's pretty simple: date, vocabulary source, kanji/kana/english. (with the bit I didn't know underlined)

Pocket book recs: I'm using these ruled Moleskine 3-packs at the moment, the soft covers get a bit tatty with use but they're a good size for carrying, no nonsense and were pretty cheap on Amazon. Rite in the Rain do some really high quality hardcover pocket books too that are 160 pages, I use the squared paper one for work purposes all the time. They pretty much dominate an entire pocket, though. I used to carry a Fisher Bullet Space Pen as well so that I could write anywhere, but I don't really bother nowadays tbh.

Regarding full sized notebooks that I use for everything else, (grammar, textbooks, production etc) to be honest, I just use whatever lined notebook I can get my hands on and don't put too much thought into organisation. I do think going through the process of writing stuff down is important to memory and learning, but it's rare that I'll ever refer back to handwritten notes unless it's going into an anki deck.

The Fisher Bullet [Space Pen] ( seems to be the standard. That's what I carry. And, it works well.

Greetings All! This is my second post to this subreddit. The first one can be found here. I've really tried to streamline my EDC and only keep items that I use everyday or that would be useful in an emergency. I've also picked up a lot of stuff after seeing similar items on this subreddit. Literally the only things that haven't been substituted for something I've seen or heard about on /r/EDC are my phone, my keys, and my watch (which will soon be getting replaced with a pebble).

So without any further ado, here is a list of my EDC. Numbers correspond to the picture in the OP. Impressions of the items can be found in the descriptions in this album.

If you're wondering what my keychain looks like put together, here and here are pictures of it all connected to the s-biner. Since I removed the Gerber Dime from my EDC, my keychain has beomce a lot less bulky. I rarely ever feel it in my pocket, and if I do all it takes is a quick adjustment to make them comfy.

If you want to see some more pictures and get some more info on my Spyderco Tasman Salt, you can check out my post on /r/knifeclub here.

If you missed it at the top of the post, a short review on the items can be found in their descriptions in this imgur album.

Not Pictured But Always Carried: Sunglasses, water bottle, and bic lighter. I didn't include pictures of these because I couldn't frame it properly with the sunglasses and the water bottle. I forgot to include the lighter in the pictures, but you're not missing much. It's simply a blue bic lighter.

Not Pictured, Sometimes Carried: iPod Classic, V-Moda m80 Headphones - picture. Often I will take these along if I know I'm going to have a slow day and have some time to kill listening to music.


So that's it! Everything I carry on a day to day basis. I want to thank this sub so much for helping me sink almost an entire paycheck into these great items! I get so many great ideas from this sub.

Thank's for looking everyone. Have a great day/afternoon/night!

u/GalacticSloth · 7 pointsr/EDC

There are tons of great options, the Parker Jotter I can definitely recommend. I've never had any leakage issues with the stock ink cartridge it came with but I also normally switch it out for a Fisher Space Pen refill.

Other good metal pens that aren't too expensive might be a Cross Click which is my current edc with a Fisher Space Pen refill in it which is great for signing receipts and quick things like that. I use it at work to give to customers to sign their receipts.. I like it because it is skinnier than the Parker Jotter, however, it is easier to accidentally click in your pocket whereas with the Jotter you have to use an intentional amount of force to click it.

Another one (or two) would be the Fisher Bullet Space Pen or the Cap-O-Matic Space Pen. The bullet is really quite compact and the Cap-O-Matic is a regular sized pen.

And if you're really worried about ink leakage in your pocket then you can get something like a Lamy Swift which has a mechanism so that when the tip of the pen is extended, the pocket clip retracts which makes it impossible to clip onto your pocket. One thing to keep in mind with the Lamy Swift is that it comes with a rollerball refill which is incredibly smooth but it puts out more ink than a regular ballpoint so it has a longer drying time and can smear on receipt paper.

The core material EDC, to me would be knife, light and cellphone. But cool keychain gidgets are really nice too.

So I'd say if you have a knife, a good flashlight would be next, then a backup knife and light (one is none, two is one). I like a multi-tool or SAK for my backup knife, and a keychain light for my backup torch.

(In case you're curious, after that I start considering footwear, gloves, hats and other clothing.)

(Sorry, I'm feeling a bit lazy, so you'll have to live with bare links.)

This one is pretty popular for keychain use:

Fenix has single AA and 123 powered lights that are well regarded and compact:

There are a lot of other brands worthy of consideration too, of course (Fourseven's mini, Jetbeam, Klarus, Zebra, just to name a few).

There are also a lot of much larger but more capable flashlights out there.

Keychain stuff is always nice:
I use these sliver grippers way more than I thought I would. The convenience of always having them around is unparalleled:
I've been thinking of getting this, I'm a little leery about that much stuff for so little cost though:
I love this style of keyring, but it's way cheaper on eBay:
Little one-piece keychain tools have become really popular, and I really like having a little prying and screwing tool always present.
The Gerber Shard is cheap but probably at least worth what you pay for it:
This one has a bit more functionality, and is made of the magically delicious titanium:

Keychain multi-tools can be good.
Here's one from Gerber:
Supposedly the build quality isn't as good as Leatherman's though:

I'd also recommend looking for a glow in the dark lanyard.

A pen you can EDC is another "you're surprised how often you use it" item. I have an Inka and it's definitely alright, though a bit fiddly:
The biggest competitor is the classic Fisher Bullet Space Pen:

Something to write on is nice. I'm a real child of the digital age, but I still like having an analog recording medium on me. I prefer Pentalic's pocket size books to Moleskine's. They're a little thicker, but they have a flexible cover, and are usually cheaper. Here's one: but I don't know if it's ruled or grid or what. I also prefer a bright color cover to make it easy to spot.

Continuing on the writing stuff matter, a sharpie and/or a metallic (ink) sharpie are nice to have. You can get sharpies with stainless steel cases too, which feel nicer to hold, and you're a little less likely to forget somewhere.
Black (dozen):
Stainless Steel:

I think everybody should carry some sort of bandanna. I carry an off-brand buff (tubular bandanna) and an olive drab shemagh.

I like to carry a small baggie of what I call MacGuyver goods. Paracord (bound up in a hanayawa right now), some gorilla tape and electrical tape wrapped around a card, super glue, a sewing kit, zip ties, twist ties, rubber bands, safety pins, binder clips, and a few 1 quart ziplock freezer bags. (Like hell I'm finding links for all of those.)

Yet another "surprising how useful it turns out to be" item is a small mirror:

Whistles are useful for warning people of fire or danger, or calling for help, so I like to carry one:

A monocular is fun to have on your person. This particular model is really great because of its super low minimum focusing distance, which lets you use it as a sort of loupe. In regular mode it's good for looking for house numbers or your car in a parking lot, that sort of thing:

I think that's all I could come up with off the top of my head.

u/phantamines · 5 pointsr/EDC

I was in a similar place as you. Here's what I got:

  • Moleskine Notebook 2.5 x 4
  • Fisher Space Pen
  • Leatherman Micra

    I wanted a small EDC that I could fit into all my pockets. It's not for everyone, but it's worked out really well for me. I use the pen almost daily, and even though it's only my third favorite in terms of writing, always having a pen on me is awesome. The Mirca has been great for just having a decent pair of scissors and a pocket knife. The other features will pay for itself when the time comes. The notebook I keep in my back pocket with the pen. It goes with always having something to write with, I now have something to write on.

    I really should post my EDC soon, seeing as this sub was what inspired me to pick up those items.
u/Sektor7g · 4 pointsr/AskReddit

I have a matte black Fisher Bullet Pen in my pocket at all times. It writes well, doesn't leak, is waterproof etc, but the real reason I go with that specific pen is the size. With the cap on it's less than 4 inches long, small enough that it completely disappears in your pocket instead of poking you in the leg every time you sit down. You don't even know it's there until you need it. When you do need to use it, the cap goes on the other end and makes it full sized for writing.

Make sure you go with a matte finish though. The shiny ones are all too slippery to use comfortably.

Now the downside-
It doesn't write nearly as smooth a rollerball. It feels like a Bic, maybe even a little stickier. I wouldn't use it for my everyday high volume writing (though I'm a bit of a pen nut, and obviously pickier than most people.) The portability is well worth it, but it's more of an "I always have a pen with me" kind of thing than an "I use this pen for everything" thing.

u/Keith · 4 pointsr/EDC

Neat, I wasn't aware of this new product from SOG.

I still prefer my combination of my EDC scissors and my bullet space pen.

DODOcase Durables Wallet for iPhone - Just started carrying this a few weeks ago when I found out my SwitchEasy Tone case was still allowing grit in and scratching the back of my phone. So far so good.

Fisher Space Bullet Pen - Always heard good things about this pen, it was smaller than I expected but that ended up being a good thing. Very happy with it.

Leatherman Micra - Perfect size for a keyring multitool, I can't deal with a ton of bulk in my pockets and this gets the job done. I'm considering modding some of my house keys on to it soon.

Standard VW keyring with keys, the USB dongle is a password key for my work laptop, nothing special.

u/sibewolf · 2 pointsr/fountainpens

Not a fountain pen, but the Fisher Space Pens were the actual pens they used in space for the Apollo missions. I have the Bullet Pen, and American Flag pen. They're pressurized so they work in zero gravity and you can write upside down without running out of ink. They also survive extreme temperatures.

I personally really like this 45th Anniversary Fisher Space Pen

So a few days ago I took a shot at trying a few of the 'cheap' $30 shoulder bags on Amazon. I ordered a bunch and this was the one that remained after a few hours of testing all of them. It holds absolutely everything despite being such a small bag (13.9" Height, 10.5" Width, 4.1" Depth). The pockets make the most sense when compared to competitors. Here is my carry list with some updates that show its full versatility (especially as a personal item when flying). Also, bag link here.

I'm a regular motorcyclist. This is everything I have on me when going out on it, whether commuting to work or just going for a day ride.
Being a motorcyclist I'm more likely to be involved in or be the first (or first prepared) person to deal with an incident on the road.
My kit is a lot of first aid and safety related equipment. The notebook I'll use if details need to be taken down before the police can arrive.

(Taking the picture) Samsung S8

  1. Water bottle
  2. Palmer's Coconut Oil Handcream
  3. Mini Lynx Deoderant
  4. OneTigris MOLLE Pouch
  5. Rite in the Rain Notebook
  6. Fisher Bulllet Space Pen
  7. Contents of the Oxford Motorcycle First Aid Kit
  8. Blast Bandadge - I was given this after a BikerDown course, and you can almost certainly find one cheaper than this
  9. Trauma Shears - again, given from the BikerDown course. These things can cut through bone and coins
  10. Multi Tool with Bits and Case
  11. 5000mAh portable battery + USB-C connector (Connector bought separately)
  12. Paracord bracelet with whistle, firestarter and compass. Came with the multitool (10)

  16. Hi-vis Jacket
  17. Kriega R20 Motorcycle Backpack
  18. Wallet
  19. AIKELA Wireless Headphones
  20. Keys, USB Stick, Shopping loyalty cards, Motorcycle Ear Buds

    Also waiting for delivery of a clip-on flashlight

    5-7 and 10-13 live in the MOLLE pouch which goes at the bottom of the backpack.
    8, 9, 14, 15, 16 live in the front pocket of the backpack.
    18, 19, 20 go in my pockets.

    On the bike I also carry a puncture repair kit, allen keys, and cable ties. I have a RAM mount incase I need to use my phone as a sat-nav.
    I'm also an ATGATT rider, so I always have a jacket (leather in summer, textile w/ hi-vis overcoat in winter), trousers (armoured denim in summer, textile in winter), gloves, boots and helmet.
    On the helmet I have a Drift Ghost X Action Cam

Fisher Space Pen Bullet.

Under $20, made of brass, small enough to fit in a back pocket, and has an optional clip.

There's also a raw brass version too, if that's what you prefer.

From the same company, there's also a brass retractable pen (with multiple colors and finishes as well).

To go with a Moleskine you really should have a good EDC pen, like the Fisher Space Pen, though Lamy Safari fountain pens are fun and affordable if that's more your style.

You should also look into Field Notes notebooks.

I have a weird thing for pens. I really enjot great quality pens that write well and feel good in my hand. I work in a job that sends me to lots of places and it is my goal to take one pen from that client. SO now I have a ton of pens, and I have a lot of good ones. But now I need one that is easy to carry on me. I carry a lot in my pockets, so a regular pen will not do. So all that to say... I really want a Fisher Space Pen.

That was easy to type out!

The Lamy 2000 isn't flashy, but it definitly looks expensive, personally if you like that pen save up and get the fountain pen version, its more worth it than the ballpoint in my opinion...

Back in high school I'd always get a multi-pocket folder like this so I could just have the 1 thing to carry for papers for all classes instead of swapping out a bunch of folders. I'd have a multi-subject notebook as well for the same reason.

I was also a fan of the Fisher Space Pen

Of course the Pilot G2 is also a nice writing pen.

Those things, my books, and a calculator for math class were about all I had.

I'm not really sure how much school has changed since I've been out though. Depending on your school maybe you just need a tablet or laptop and that's it...
