Just to remind people...
, December 16, 2009
Just to remind people as it seems that many do not know... to write with small
diameter pens you should use smooth paper, that is quality type of paper such as
Rhodia, Clairefontaine etc, not the usual domestic crap you find in Staples and
other common stores. You could use it on those cheap rough papers but the pen
will skip and you will ruin the tip of the pen. So you have to use good french
made paper (other make good paper too eg Japanese, Italian) and you will love
drawing or writing with these type of pens.
Had to add that in as some people complain [likely not knowing about quality of
paper required for good results] about skipping etc, not only these pens but
almost any other tiny diameter of pen.
Remember the two high quality papers: Clairefontaine notebooks of various sizes
(this one is best and is much thicker than Rhodia, and Rhodia is very common. I
use Rhodia blank notebooks in size A4 for sketching and doodling while for
writing I use Clairefontaine notebooks of both pocket and A4 size for writing
important notes for home [studies, archival notes...I still have to have written
notes/articles on paper as i do not trust computers 100%...they eventually
crash..I know backup etc, but that also crashes believe me]. Nothing beats
writing on nice paper.

I love these pens for...
, July 17, 2009
I love these pens for fine tuning watercolors and for making very, very thin
lines. I use them, also to fill in very small gaps that my calligraphy pen left.
LOVE it!!!! The Signo .18 is also a great pen.... even smaller than this one if
you can believe that! This is needle fine.

Other than the 0.4mm,...

Other than the 0.4mm, I've never had a Hi-Tec or G-Tec pen in 0.25mm write
smoothly each time. The ink always skips or needs starting before use.
This alone is a 3 star rating.
