An outstanding pen. The grip, while not soft or gimmicky, doesn't slip. The red
(reviewed here) is bright and easy to see against black or blue text; the ink is
bright without being watery. The choice of 0.38mm nib size is outstanding for
those who tend to prefer fine text. Notice how wide the ink store is inside the
refill: coupled with the fine point, the ink in these pens lasts a long time.
Some reviewers complain of scratchiness; I tend to press hard when I write but I
find the tip of the UM-138 delivers firm, deliberate strokes without being too
scratchy. The ink never skips. I will continue to purchase these as my standard,
household gel ink pen.

grip feeling: okay
Overall: Okay. I personally prefer Pilot G-Knock Retractable Gel Ink Pen - 0.38
for better grip and better nonslip feature of the cushion.
