While the 0.38mm tip...
, June 8, 2011
While the 0.38mm tip writes fine lines, I am rather disappointed in the ink
reservoir. If you pay close attention, the inner diameter on the refill is
much smaller than most normal refillable pens which explains why these pens have
such a short lifespan. The inner diameter on this refill is 2mm (approximately
3/32”) whereas other pens, like the Zebra Sarasa or the Uni-ball Signo 0.5mm,
have a much wider inner diameter. These pens have a 5mm (approximately 5/32”)
inner diameter, resulting in 2.5 times more ink than the Signo 0.38mm RT.
It’s a great price, especially for those who love super fine tips. Me?
I’ll take the extra ink with a 0.5mm tip.

To the guy who is complaining about the reservoir size. It isn't that the .38
size has a smaller reservoir in particular, it's that the retractable signo's as
a model have a smaller reservoir. Any size of signo DX models will have the same
size reservoir. If you want .38 and still want a big reservoir go look at the
.38 signo DXs. They also come in .28 and .5 btw. Anyways, the pen itself has
been good to me as all the models of signo I've tried have been. Other than that
sometimes not having to worry about a cap can be a good thing. Also, the grip is
farther down the pen, which is better for me because I hold pens closer to the
tip, which with the Signo DX model is pretty far up so I end up holding past the

This is a good, smooth writing, precise pen. I will agree that the ink quantity
is small and I used up each and every last bit of ink in these pens because I
love writing with them. Especially in my lab notebook, since they're waterproof.
When I resorted to a Pilot G-2 after this pen died the ink ran like crazy at the
slightest drop of water.
It's a pity the refills for this pen are actually more expensive than the pen
itself, or I'd just get the refills.
Either way, don't pretend that this pen will last forever and buy a good half
dozen because you'll like it.

Great retractable pen, the 0.38 line is more like a 0.5 line, which in my
opinion is better. As most of the cases, the clip is very fragile, look for the
Zebra Sarasa Clip or Pilot Juice, which have a metal mechanism for more
versatility in the clip.

Good pen for writing English, Chinese or Japanese. Good control, smooth and
even. Good price too.
