, September 12, 2010
This pen has a stronger tip and better ink than others. I've tried the Hybrid
Technica and Hi-Tec-C pens and I disliked how fragile their tips were, you feel
like you're going to break it if you write too fast. In addition, the ink from
this pen dries significantly faster than the others', which is really nice if
you're going to be writing on a semi-glossy surface like taking notes in a
textbook, writing a card, or writing left-handed. After I tried this pen, I
never bothered trying another manufacturer's again.

, September 26, 2011
This pen is fantastic. Due to a previous person's review stating that the pen
was too scratchy I bought this .28 size and the .38 size. While the pen does
have a scratchy quality due to the small size I found that I acually liked the
drag on the paper and that my handwriting was far more legible.
The black - blue color ink is a great mix of the two colors, that also looks
The pen ink lasted a lot longer than I had expected, and that was with daily all
day use. I will definitely be buying this pen again.

, October 7, 2006
I love these pens. Bought a few in Europe and couldn't find any here in the
States. Thank you, JetPens!!
The ink is very quick to dry, it will never skip or sploch. Nor will it leak if
left in contact with paper or clothing. Amazing writing instrument for those who
wish to keep neat, fine print.
One thing to look out for is how fragile these pens are. Because of the
precision design, the ballpoint is easily damaged. This isn't to say that this
pen won't last you till it's dry, but don't drop it on the tip. I broke two like
this =\. Gotta kick my twirling habit.
Overall: Best writing instrument evar.

, September 14, 2006
I bought this along with a 0.25mm Pilot Hi-Tec-C; I've used almost half of the
ink Signo DX and almost none of the Hi-Tec-C. The reinforced tip on the Signo
makes it much easier to write quickly without skips in the ink. The ink dries
very quickly, which is also a nice feature. I also have an fairly unused Pentel
Hybrid Technica 0.3mm which stays unused due to the same weak tip as the
Hi-Tec-C and its slow drying ink.
The blue-black ink appears black, even if you're looking at it hard. I'd
recommend getting a lighter blue if you want blue looking ink.

, April 27, 2013
My go-to pen in graduate school! After failing with the Uni-ball Signo UM-201
0.18 mm gel ink pens, I moved up to this 0.28 in blue black, black, and regular
blue. I loved these pens for quick class notation and studying for exams.
These pens saved my wrist during the infamous "blue book" tests that you
typically find in humanities and social science classes. Ball points, which
most students use during those strenuous writing feats, cause great pain and
soreness afterwards. This pen is truly a great basic pen, and I recommend these
when blue or black ink is required for a lengthy writing task.

By far, one of my favorite pens. The color is perfect and the flow is perfect.
As long as you are delicate with this pen (don't drop it, etc.) it will work

I swear by this pen. The blue black is such a classy color. It writes smoothly
and is perfect for taking neat notes or writing in small print.

The color is fantastic but I personally find the 0.28 mm size almost too small
considering the scratchy feel during writing.

I've reviewed how great the black version is, and I must say I really like this
blue-black color! Writes equally smoothly, makes my hands and eyes happy!

, March 1, 2008
I am rather sorry to say, this pen is really fragile! D:
Which is a real drawback from it being the PERFECT school pen.
The first one I bought, I dropped it on the floor with the cap on. So i picked
it up, and started writing again. To my horror, it was leaking ink. And then it
would stop working suddenly, then all the ink comes suddenly again. I was so
disappointed I had to buy another one. Right now, I am really protective of it ,
I would never let it get close enough to the edge of my desk x]
Anyone having the same problem?

This is by far, my favourite colour!!
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 found this pen in Japan but difficult even to find more there. I love the
point size 0.28, perfect. I will order plenty. T.M.G.Long Virginia USA
