Everything has its use......

Everything has its use... this pen I've found to be a great substitute for
pencil sketching. It works very well when you make lots of short strokes when
drawing something, and like a pencil its tone varies considerably. It is indeed
"moody" as one of the other reviewers said, but this is another word for
"variable tone", which you can use to your advantage if you learn its workings.
The thickness of the ink can vary from very, very light, to a little thicker
than the 0.25 Hi-Tec-C.
It's not very good at all for making big, long straight strokes - you want the
0.25 Hi-Tec-C for those.
It's also probably not great as a writing pen, since as I said, it's more for
short sketching strokes, and writers tend to write each letter without taking
their hand off the page... the other coloured inks of these 0.18mm models come
out a lot more readily than the black, and are probably better for writing.
