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
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.
I love these pens. They are by far the best pens I have ever written with. I
have ordered 6 refills and I bought the pack of assorted colors because they are
great. I use the different colors for taking notes at school. I like how pointy
and fine they are. I have gotten other brands of 0.38 and 0.4, but this is by
far my favorite.
I made a general purchase on JetPens a few years back when I first discovered
the site on almost every popular line of pens and pencils and erasers they have
(I tried to buy one from each line, if not at least one from each brand). I have
since used them all and have discarded some of the ones that were poor quality.
This pen is HANDS DOWN the best pen I've ever used. If you are a pen junkie, you
know that the right pen can sometimes make you write much neater and better and
this pen in my hand makes my writing look like a fancy version of microsoft
word. HIGHLY recommended. I just made another purchase for a new pen and 3
