Faber-Castell Ambition Ballpen
I'm quite partial to the Faber-Castell Ambition line, and have already shown off the Ambition fountain pen. The pastel-colored Ambition Ballpen is another favorite, especially after I found out that it will take Monteverde gel ink refills, which include a great blue-black and purple. The barrel is made out of resin and comes in a variety of shades, including tropical blue pictured above as well as mint, lilac, and pink. A detail I like is that the pen retracts by using a swivel motion at the clip end, rather than having a plunger like most ballpoints. On the high-end side for a simple ballpoint pen, but definitely worth is for the way it looks and feels in the hand.
