Nearly 15years ago I was working in Japan and soon discovered these unique and
The write a nice, consistent line and the tips does not get all mushy. Yes,
they can seem scratchy if you're not doing something quite right, but that is
becauseonly a thin, hard tip will write the kind of thin, .3mm type mechanical
pencil kind of lines.
In Japan they sold a pack of these pens in a rainbow of colors. Don't know if
that's available here, but it should be.
A few years after I got back from Japan, I asked Pilot Pens of USA why they did
not have these same pens here back in the states. His response was the lamest,
I-dont'know'whatist one I have ever heard, which was, "We don't sell these pens
here because we want to maintain a variety of pens throughout the world."
Whch is a bit funny as I saw in Japan the same Pilot Pense the same ones we have
here in the USA.
Anyway, if you are like me you want clean, un-varied lines you will like these
pens...for all your writing-related stuff, especially for engineering, math,
science, etc. Through the full life of the pen, the point remains just as firm
as it was from the factory. I got to add, I hope to get some of these as
Christmas presents this year now that I finally found them...again.
