I first heard about the 0.18 mm pen, was rather curious, and then decided that
the 0.28 mm pen might be a more practical one for daily use. I purchased many of
these pens (and of different colors), and they are absolutely amazing. I've
always been sort of against gel pens from experiences with very ordinary ones in
the U.S. that don't have consistent ink flow and make a line too thick. I've
used this pen for many months now, and I absolutely LOVE to write with it. A gel
pen made right! Waterproof too! Thin, readable line, consistent ink-flow. I do
have to warn you that if you drop this pen on the tip, it -will- render it
non-usable (but you should expect that considering the tip is so thin!). As long
as that doesn't happen, this pen will last you a good while, and I recommend
this to anyone who loves to write small and write a lot! Very smooth! I even
ordered these as gifts for others!

I like these pens. The ink is nice and black and goes onto the paper evenly. The
have a nice tapering nib that makes for a strong tip. They have a rubber grip
that is not to soft and feels good in my hand. The cap is short and when on the
back of the pen does not rest in the web of my hand. The pens have good balance
allowing for long writing periods.
The 0.28mm nib drags the worst of the 2 sizes but leaves the thinner line. The
0.38mm nib writes the smoothest but produces a darker line. The 0.38mm nib is
perhaps the better of the two as an every day pen. It writes as smooth as any
other uni-ball 0.38mm gel pen.

The best pen I have ever written with.
The ink is smooth, and flows extremely well for a .28.
The tip feels extremely sturdy, so I don't worry about pushing too hard or
The barrel feels strong, and the grip is really nice as well.
It's very comfortable to hold in one's hand.
Overall, I can't wait to get some more of these! They will be my pen of choice
for a long long time.

BEST pen ever. I love the way it writes so smoothly and it never skips or dies
up on me. I've used up a dozen of these pens within the past few months due to
school, and even though the ink goes fast, I will never ditch these pens.

I lived in Japan about eight years back (1998-2000) and discovered this pen
while there. I brought back dozens of them when I returned stateside, and the
day my last pen pooped out was a sad, sad day indeed. I'm a writer, and I often
daydream about this pen, about the soft and gooey scratch it makes when you
write with it--there's an indescribable cleanness and fineness in that gooey
scratch that I've never found in another gel pen, try as I have. I love, love,
love this pen.

Black and Blue-Black in this pen have been my workhorse pens for the last year.
Being a student, I write many, many notes and so have gone through about 7
blue-blacks. Out of that I have had trouble with 2 pens. One never wrote well
and another stopped working half-way through its ink supply. Otherwise these are
excellent pens! I will continue to buy these pens.

I have a simple review for the Signo DX .28 mm. The perfect field sketch pen,
stiff because of the tapered nib 'not a needle nib' responsive, dense and
vibrant, takes abuse and delivers the finest detail for illustrations and
sketches intended for reproduction. A pinnacle of balanced design. Five out of
Five. For the money you can't beat it on any front, no import or domestic pen
matches it's capacity for expression. FIVE OUT OF FIVE! Also the most
comfortable of the micro pens.

This is by far the best pen for artists looking for a instant dry extremely fine
tip drawing pen. My perspective teacher recommended these and I am now using
them religously. Any of the DX series from Japan rock for artsists.
