Pilot Varsity

The Varsity is a disposable fountain pen by Pilot.  Yes, we're talking about the kind of pen that uses gravity and capillary action to draw actual liquid ink from an internal reservoir to an actual nib.  Only instead of refilling it when it runs out, you just throw it away.  We like this pen because it writes a fine, smooth line and also because it's a fantastic conversation starter.  We tried it on our Field Notes and experienced relatively minimal bleed-through.  Most office supply stores should stock these but Amazon appears to have the best price.  (If you're thinking of taking this on an airplane, be aware that the ink will leak out with the increased air pressure.)
