DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
It's the world's thinnest gel pen! The tip is so small you can write words on a grain of rice. The tiny needlepoint tip of this pen will let you scratch notes into the smallest of places. The Uni-ball Signo Bit line is famous for their small and thin writing ability. This product, already rare in the US, might become even more rare as certain colors have started to become discontinued from Uni-ball Japan. Get them while you can!

I bought this pen along with the Pilot Hi Tec-c .25mm. This is the best pen I have ever used, I bought 10 refills the very next week. As a student I have tons of uses for this pen, not only is it great for taking smooth, crisp notes. If I need to sqeeze something else in, the super fine tip can handle it. Amazing.

Like the last poster I really just bought this for the $25 free shipping. But it's actually pretty good. It's actually a very impressive pen.

This pen is awesome. It is fine point enough you can write tiny, but it is sturdy and comfortable enough to use on a regular basis. I had just gotten it to get to the 25 dollar free shipping, but I am going to get more the next time around. It has a pretty decent grip, isn't tiny like the pentel slicci (though i have small hands i thought i would break that in half). You can have the fine point and the precision without writing with something tiny or overly "pretty."

This is my go-to pen....

This is my go-to pen. I recently purchased a number of different fine tip pens, and with the exception of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C Maica pens, this is my absolute favorite. It's definitely my go-to when writing down notes during meetings and now journaling. The 0.28 fine tip makes my writing more precise and neat. It writes well on Moleskine paper, but it will sometimes rip more delicate paper if you use a lot of pressure in your writing.

Only downside is that despite the fine tip, you do use a lot of ink! I've been using this pen daily for about a week and a half, and already my ink is down to half capacity. I do write a lot of notes, but I wish the pen lasted longer.

Overall, I love this pen, and I am thrilled I can buy ink refills rather than buying a new pen.

I bought one of these, along with one of the same model but with the 0.18 mm ball, admittedly out of curiosity - could truly usable pens be made with a point that fine? In my opinion, the answer in both cases is yes. You may need to adjust your writing style to be satisfied with these - a lighter touch, a minimal adjustment to the angle of pen to paper, careful attention to the pressure being applied - but these are noteworthy writing instruments. Thank you, JetPens, for making these available.
