I thought I would share my other favorite pen, the Stablio Point Visco 0.5. I love the smooth, dark line of this pen, and adore the way the pen works with my loose, sloppy writing. It is the same size as a typical pencil, and has the same shape. There is a comfortable grip on the pen. The cap is small, and I lose it constantly, but the pen has sat out with no lid for days with no loss of performance, so I can forgive the lack of a retractable option. You might question why my two favorite pens both list cons, and honestly, I am pragmatic. Nothing is perfect, but I love a pen that I am able to use as both a writing and sketching too. It saves space and time. I also adore writing with instruments that I enjoy using for drawing. It makes notes or messages seem less mundane somehow.
