    • Thanks for sharing!! I was just saying I think I need to get out to the western Canada more often 🙂 And yes, these pens are a bit nostalgic!

  1. Pilot used to make a series of pens called Bravo! They are markers, in black, blue, red and green.

    The green was the best green I ever found for marking papers. The blue had a periwinkle twinge to it.

    Do you know those pens? Are they still available, anywhere? I can’t find ’em in Dallas anymore.

  2. I would like to purchase these items listed below; can you give me a price and tell whether you can ship them?

    Thanks,

    I can confirm the usage of “felt pen”. I’m in my early 30’s and from Calgary, so Elizabeth’s observation checks out 🙂

    • Thanks for reading, and sharing! Yes, I’m seeing now that it does seem to be a west coast thing – a sign I need to get out to see the mountains more often 🙂

  4. You mean not everyone calls them felts? I grew up in western Canada (Vancouver) and in my early school days (late 70s) that’s what we called these pens. Hmm, I still call them that. I’ll check for quizzical looks next time I use the term again.

    This post brings back memories! When I was a kid (back in the 70’s in Quebec) my father would sometimes bring home Pilot Fineliners for us from the office. We referred to them as felt-tip markers. We never had purple or brown though because I guess they weren’t popular colours for office work.

    • Yes, these Fineliners are certainly a classic Pilot pen! It’s been around “forever,” it seems – it’s hard to find someone who doesn’t recognize that white ring on the cap 🙂
