The BLX collection of Uni-ball Signo 207 gel ink pens features intriguing dark colors created by infusing black ink with color. The pigment-based ink bonds permanently with paper, resulting in strong colors and document security. It is resistant to chemicals that can wash away dye-based inks, thus preventing check washing (a common method of check fraud). The ink is acid-free, water-resistant, fade-resistant, and of archival quality. You will also enjoy a comfortable writing experience, due to the textured grip.
Dimensions: 5.6 inches length, 0.4 inches diameter (14.1 cm length, 0.4 cm diameter).
This pen made me fall in love with blue-black ink.
It was the first time I've ever seen it, and it seems very sophisticated to me.
I wanted this to be my go to pen, but alas, even though I had purchased a couple
of packages (unfortunately, in the store where I initially found it, I could
only get it in a 4 pack with red-black, green-black, and purple-black pens, none
of which quite had the same magic color-wise as the blue-black), this color
always skips on me, even though I don't have that problem with the other colors
in the set.
So, now I've ordered about a half a dozen different blue-black pens from JetPens
in the hopes that I can have the ink color I adore along with a smooth writing
I respectfully disagree with the other reviewer...this is a great gel pen! Mine
is very smooth and doesn't skip in the slightest. This ink is a very attractive
blue black color (though I was not a fan of the purple black, it looked a little
dead/drab to me). The barrel is slightly wider than I would like but much
narrower than many other pens these days, and it tapers nicely to the point so
you can choke up on it a bit without discomfort. And I can live without a rubber
grip, but I find this one to be an enhancement. Minus one star for *slightly*
wide grip and because the writing is not quite as silky as the Pentel Energel.
I've got a handful of Signo 151's that I love, but the 207 is a disappointment.
The ink clumps a lot and the pen consequently skips - and then of course the
clumped-ink smear on the paper that messes up the already skip-laden writing.
I'm not a huge fan of the wide barrel either, and the pen doesn't have quite as
much weight as I like. After an amicable separation I left this one in the
general collection of pens at work and I hope it finds a happy home.
Love the color. The ball rolls well, and feels really smooth. However, on nice
writing paper while writing at a moderate speed, I get a mild amount of skipping
and there is a bit of smearing. Not super impressed. If it weren't for the
color, I'd throw this pen in the community pile at my in-law's house. It's ok.
Nothing to write home about.
