I write very small but love a bold, consistent line. Until I bought the Maica, I settled with the not-quite-dark-enough but smooth line of the 0.38mm Uniball Signo and the bold but slightly too thick 0.35mm Pentel EnerGel. I've tried other pens in the Hi-Tec-C line and found them too scratchy, but decided to give the Maica a shot because I'm a sucker for needle-point pens and it's very nice looking. I'm glad I gave it a try because this is definitely my new favorite pen! The 0.4mm is thin enough to accommodate my small handwriting but still lays down a nice dark line without skipping or scratching. I also bought the six-color set and have been very impressed with the quality of the colors. I should mention that I use Levenger paper, which makes most pens look pretty nice, but at this price point you might as well pick one up and try it yourself!

A cartridge that's notoriously good and has a really solid reputation. I ordered it with extremely high expectations and it didn't come short of them at all. The pen lays out a real 0.4mm line in a fairly bold black shade. The writing is smooth, the ink dries fast and it's one of the most reliable pens I own. A definite must-have pen.

Beautifully thin. Fantastic to use. Great ink.

Slight scratching drag when pulled but still excellent.

Don't drop it! Pen tip easily warps.

I saw this pen and just had to have it! The body style and shape is beautiful. And the ink is just as great. Dark and pure black. I even outline drawings with this. Though this is manly used in notes and my journal.
I love the colors and Pilot once again did not fail with a product.

This pen is probably the best pen I have ever, and will ever write with. It's so INCREDIBLY smooth: no jumps, no smudges, no problems. The design is aesthetically pleasing in a lot of ways; super super cute. At this price, this pen is a heaven send and my only remorse is a small (but not incredibly small) ink life. Will buy more!

I did not have much success at all with this pen. I am writing this review right now because I just gave it one more try. It writes well for a while but then fades out. At least that has been my experience.

This has rapidly become my favorite pen, eclipsing the G2. The ink dries rapidly and doesn't smear, ever. The lines are fine enough for precision but the pen itself can be handled with more vigor for bigger, passionate writing. Despite the needle-looking point of the tip I have never had one bend. I've also never experienced anything but fluid, easy ink flow -- no skipping whatsoever.

I prefer the 0.4mm size to 0.3mm for the added boldness of the lines and the reduced feedback.

My favorite pen. Everyone I've introduced to the 0.4mm Maica absolutely loves it. HIGHLY recommended!

These are a fun diversion from my normal Pilot Hi-Tec C.

I like this pen, but sometimes the ink flow can be inconsistent. I'm not talking about random globs of ink, but sometimes when I writing a lot, I start to notice that the print gets a taddd bit thicker. Nothing too noticeable. I mostly just like the way the pen looks.

I receive compliments on this pen whenever I use it. I have never received compliments on a pen, before. It writes beautifully. My only issue is if it has not been used in a while, like 2-3 days, I have to shake it and write on a scratch pad to get the ink flowing again. Other than that, I love Maica style and plan on buying many more colors.
