A pocketable writing instrument includes an elongate body which incorporates a flexible dual tab grip 66. The grip provides the user with additional surface area with which to grip the instrument during writing; this allows the device to be comfortable during use yet small and compact during storage. When used in conjunction with a pocketable note holder, the grip also performs additional functions: it provides an axial stop for the instrument such that it can be repeatedly placed in the same position within the holder (preventing instrument protrusion from the device); and it allows the user to easily insert and remove the instrument from the receptacle, whereas this action might otherwise be awkward with a traditional small elongate object. This abstract description is not intended to be a complete description of, or limit the scope of, the invention.
