This was my go-to pen...
, June 22, 2012
This was my go-to pen a month ago, when I got my first order of Japanese pens.
Superb ink flow, with no skipping or blotting. Very smooth writing, but with
just the right amount of friction on the nib for great control. If it wasn't
for the skinniest-barrel-ever, this pen would be a joy to write with for hours.
Instead, using this pen makes my writing look a little sloppy and fatigues my
hand too easily.
Also, now that I've tried the Signo DX (0.28 and 0.38), I've noticed some
shortcomings. The line the Slicci puts down is the perfect width for me. Seems
a lot wider than a Sarasa 0.3. Problem is, the line doesn't seem as sharp as
the Signo DX's. I notice consistent imperfections and even (gasp!) slight
feathering. It's not glaring, but it's definitely there.
Lastly, the ink level on this guy plunges after every use. Even for a gel-ink,
the ink runs out fast.
This is still a good pen. It performs MUCH better than the refills for the
multi-pen Slicci (I don't know what's wrong with those). When I get bored with
the Signos, I could see myself coming back to try some colors.

This is, by far, my favorite in-class notebook pen.
The tip glides across the paper and makes fine, thin lines (which also highly
compliment my tiny writing style).
I literally feel like I'm writing faster than normally when I'm using this pen,
and I can say I'm extremely satisfied with this purchase.
Nothing much more to say besides individual remarks:
Grip - Just a basic texture plastic grip, but my fingers don't hurt after a
Ink - Nice and black
Tip - Incredible

My everyday notetaking pen. Consistent line thickness, fast drying speed, super
smooth writing experience. 0.3mm is super thin, perfect for mathematics (small
exponents with exponents with exponents with... ...with exponents.) I'm tempted
to go even smaller, but I'm happy with the 0.3mm. I've had a great experience
with all colors of this pen (except brown, but that's been discontinued), not
just the black. The black is a nice dark black, and not scratchy. The barrel is
very narrow, with a ridged grip. I prefer this type of narrow, rough grip but it
may not be for everyone.
I use black, dark green, and royal blue more than any other colors, with

This is without a doubt one of my favorite pens! I had all of the colors and
used each of them til they ran out. The only problem I ever had was with the
light blue color, which stopped working even though most of the ink was still
left in it. The lines are crisp and perfect for spidery cursive notes and
letters to friends. I love how thin the lines are :3

I couldn't get more than half of the ink out of these before they stopped
flowing. I'm not a hard writer, and I was just writing in a standard quadruled
notebook. I went through four refills, including the one that came in the pen.
I'm really disappointed with the Slicci. I have the Slicci Techo Mini as well,
and it's given me some trouble, too. The Techo Mini has been more reliable, but
I've still had to replace refills that stopped flowing with a substantial amount
of ink left in them. Even while the ink was flowing the Slicci's skipped a bit.
Other than the refills, the pen is fine. I really like the design, though the
cap doesn't stay on the back end very well. I've switched to the Uni-ball Signo
0.28, and although I haven't gotten through a whole refill yet, my results have
been better than with the Slicci's.
