| Slicci pens are great....
, October 10, 2010
Slicci pens are great. The ink is so fantastic--thin yet crisp--and the ink flow
is great. Sometimes, the ink will get clogged a little bit, but if you scribble
with the pen for a bit more, it will be fine. I recommend this pen, and
especially this thickness. Anything less than 0.4 will be a little too thin for
me. 0.4 has a perfect balance of thinness and crispness. Also, the barrel is
kind of small/thin, so make sure you are okay with thinner pens before you buy
it. For me, it was fine, but I did notice my hand being a bit sore after

They are great pens for small hands. I do find them a bit uncomfortable to hold
as I prefer a bit thicker of a barrel. Overall the color and flow is very
smooth. My favorite is the Frixion but these would be my second choice when I
need a pen change.

5 stars for color selection,...
This review is from Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - 15 Color Set
, March 24, 2012
5 stars for color selection, smooth skip-free writing, fast drying gel ink.
Take away one star for:
-----Their small size-they seem to be art/craft pens, not for note-taking, as
the pen is uncomfortable to hold for long writing sessions.
-----Mislabeled "blue black" as "midnight blue," which is no big deal except I
wanted to buy all the colors not inuded in this 15 pack, but ended up with TWO
blue black pens. The pen in this 15 pack is labeled blue black on the actual
pen. Jetpens also sells that same pen seperately as Midnight Blue, even though
the label does say "blue black"...you can see it in the picture on Jetpens for
the Midnight Blue pen. There is NO Slicci pen called "Midnight Blue" it is
actually blue black. And it's a lovely color! I have two of them but I don't
-----Slicci's 0.25mm is not even close to Hi-Tec-C's 0.25mm. In fact, Slicci's
0.25mm point falls somewhere between Hi-Tec-C's 0.3mm and 0.4mm. Judging by this
comparison, I think Slicci's 0.25mm is probably a 0.35mm in reality. But the
colors are also more vibrant and more pigmented than Hi-tec-C's ink colors, so
maybe that's why it looks like a heavier line.
-----Expensive pens, same price as Hi-Tec-C pens but Sliccis are smaller. Does a
smaller pen hold less ink? I don't know, but the logical assumption is probably
"yes" because its smaller! And I love Jetpens but Sliccis cost more here than at
most other stores....although Jetpens does have 20 different colors of Sliccis
available individually AND in 5, 10, or 15 packs, while those other stores only
have 10 colors and only in a 10 pack, never sold individually. Jetpens wins that
one even though they charge a little more.
And that is why I gave 4 stars. I do recommend these Sliccis pens if you like to
write small in many colors of ink...or if you have already collected ALL the
Hi-Tec-C colors plus ALL of the Uniball Signo DX 0.28 and 0.38 colors....you
might as well get these too, because Slicci's colors are very exciting and
different. They will wake up your creative & imaginative abilities.

Oh Slicci. How do I love...
This review is from Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.25 mm - Black Ink
, June 1, 2011
Oh Slicci. How do I love thee? Let me count the ways. Or at least write a little
Seriously, this is the best pen I've ever written with. I am a pen junkie (like
I suspect many of you are). I love my Hi-Tec-Cs, I love my Sakura Microns, I
love my Staedtlers...but the .25mm Slicci is a dream come true. Right now I have
8 colors, and I have 10 more on the way. I'm writing this review for the black
pen because a) it was the first Slicci I bought and b) I use it most.
Things I love about the .25mm Slicci:
1. Super-fine tip that is also sturdy.
2. Ink flows very well, rarely skips.
3. So many colors!
4. My tiny hands love the thin barrel.
5. Very lightweight; easy to use for extended periods of time
6. With the superfine tip and gel ink, lines drawn/written are VERY precise.
I've drawn incredibly intricate things with the Slicci that I never would've
been able to with my other pens.
7. All this for only 3 bucks.
In the interest of fairness, I'll say the following:
The purple Slicci disappointed me a little bit. It's a fuchsia-ish shade, and I
like rich royal purples. Also, something about purple gel inks, for some reason
they never flow quite as well as other colors. Just my bad luck? Maybe. I mean,
the purple Slicci is still a wonderful pen, but it could use some tweaking.
Caveat to my number 4 above: Yes, I love the thin barrel, but I recognize that
it isn't for everyone. I have an...unconventional...way of holding pens that is
most conducive to thin barrels. Those of you who find it too thin, perhaps a
rubber grip thingy would help?
Yes, I've had a couple Sliccis (even black ones) die on me. Chances are some of
them actually ran out of ink, knowing how much I use them. For the ones that
still had ink, if I set it aside for a few days, it'd usually start up again.
Some of them might just have had screwy tips. Clearly my few uncooperative pens
haven't dampened my love for the Slicci in general!
I realize I've basically written a dissertation here, so I'll sum it up in two
words: EXCELLENT PEN. :)

I've got to say, this...
This review is from Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen - 0.4 mm - Black Ink
, September 16, 2009
I've got to say, this is a great pen. Consistent, dark lines are really this
pen's strong point. The only problem with it is the pen's overall size - it's
really small! With a barrel smaller in diameter than that of a AAA battery, and
the lack of a rubber grip make this pen hard, and even sometimes difficult to
use during long periods of time.
