We're huge fans of Pilot's G2 gel ink pen. We love the G2 so much that we hold weddings for each pen and Moleskine notebook that get used together. Kidding. We're not that weird — we just hold funerals when their ink runs dry. Anyway, Pilot has introduced the G2 Mini ($6-$16; Feb. 1), a smaller version that will fit better in our pockets and take up less room in our gadget bag. It's available in eight colors in packs of 3, 4 and 8. Like the original, the Mini has a comfortable rubber grip and acid-free, archival safe gel ink that is water-resistant and smear-proof.
