Well, I have been using Pilot brand pens for years, and now I have some history behind the name! I can't say that I have used Zebra brand, but I have a huge collection of writing/drawing utensils, so I may have in the past.
Most of the time, you never give a thought about the products you use, or the name on said product. Thanks for providing a little bit of history! (And the aviation tie-in!)
