With their Signo RT1 pen, Uni-ball unveils an innovative tip design. The tip is rounded and edgeless to reduce friction against the paper, resulting in a super-smooth writing experience. Mirroring that smoothness is the simple body consisting of a clicker with clip, and a rubber grip that blends almost seamlessly into the barrel.
Both the .28 and the .38 are fantastic. I prefer this one, because I love fine,
fine points and tiny, tiny writing, but either is great. The only drawback for
me is the barrel size, which is a bit bigger than I like. It's a normal-sized
pen, and I like a tiny one. But that's not enough to knock a point off, because
this is for me the smoothest-writing of all the ultra-fine points. Love it.
I love this pen; the tip is minutely small, but it always starts up quickly and
writes reliably for me. The ink is a classic, all situation appropriate blue
black, and I love using it for taking notes in pocket sized notebooks when I'm
out in about, as I can fit a ton of writing on the page if I want to and it's
all clear and easy to read.
As a firefighter/paramedic, I write a great number of reports. The 0.28mm tip
is excellent for writing quantity in a small space given on our standard forms.
Documentation is essential when every form could become evidence in
legal/criminal proceedings. My only complaint is that the 0.28 mm refill is not
available in blue/black. (My preferred color of ink) Therefore, I have to buy
new pens at $2.50 each rather than the refills at $1.35.
