As an accountant I have always used a mechanical pencil and fountain pens just because they were different. I just picked up a Faber-Castell Snakewood Mechanical Pencil to replace my Montblanc that looked out of place where I currently work. I could not believe that the other accountants here do not use either a pencil or fountain pen. Instead they use the disposal pens you get as promotional items. Oh well one day they may learn that these items make the job more interesting.
Yes! Agree 100% Am also an accountant, and I either used nice ballpoints, fountain pens, and mechanical pencils. Occasionally a Pilot G2 if I didn't have red available in my other pens. Everyone else is using the cheap office supply closet stuff or promotional. I always had at least a Parker 45 Flighter or similar in my pocket with matching mechanical pencil. (or other Parker Flighter model)
