I use this pen all the time for crosshatching and very fine outlines. It's not for people with heavy hands, and it's not the most durable pen for writing.

Whoever rates these lowly write way too heavily and should be using a different pen to begin with. If you're looking for fine detailing and have the gentle hand for such details, this pen is perfect. It doesn't just "wear out" after 30 minutes.

I've used these pens for years and always found them to be an excellent buy. The ink is smooth, crisp, and dark. However, if you press too hard, the tip will push into the barrel, so these need to be used with only light pressure.

I cannot say enough about the entire Sakura Micron line -- as a lefty who loves inking my own pencilwork, I have to worry often about smearing ink and lines not holding true. I have never had a problem with that when I use these pens. I love the crispness of the finepoint, and how long they last. I've left them overnight in a car in over 100 degree heat and not had them dry up. Simply said, I consider these platinum class pens that are beyond affordable.

Good:

Extreme precision.
Great flow without being viscous.
Writes well at all angles.
No feathering.

Possibly Bad:

Barrel (underneath the cap) is slightly too narrow for my taste. I know I can and will get used to it, but if you are used to big grips or thick writing utensils, it will feel odd at first.

This pen delivers and you can't go wrong if you need a utensil that writes incredibly precise and glides perfectly. The only drawback is if you can't write without using a large grip. Highly recommend.

as always, a favorite forever. I will just keep coming back to this pen. I like the tight lids, the comfortable shape and size of the housing and the TINY point. also, really and truly waterproof ink I can watercolor over the top of.

Good pen for it's price

Really, the Micron series is worth it as long as you don't press too hard as you write. Only other complaint I have for Microns is that the less it is held perpendicular to the paper, the more skipping and lighter the line you will get. I suppose this could be used to one's advantage if you want a lighter line, but consistency is pretty important in my book. I'll have to keep trying technical pens.

This pen is great! I absolutely love how tiny it is ~
Although, sometimes you can't write/draw sideways cause the bunt is straight and not.. felt. But that's nothing big.

I recommend this pen for any drawing or for someone who write tiny!

Squishier than I was expecting out of the pen that's most associated with Zentangle art. It just didn't have as thin or steady a line as many of the .2mm markers available on Jet Pens. Didn't really like it as much as its price indicated that I should, but name brands, what can you say?

One of the better fine-liners in my opinion when comparing to the Staedtler and Copics I have. I feel that the Microns have a slightly darker line compared to the other fine liners, but one thing that threw me off was the size 005 labeling. Microns have a different size 'metric' than other pens so keep that in mind.
