From the perspective of a university student, this pen is excellent. From working out mechanisms in organic chemistry to just simply writing (notes or essays), this pen does an outstanding job.

Compared to the Uni-ball Signo RT UM-138 (0.38), this pen is better built, has a slightly more comfortable grip, has a much larger volume of ink, and writes with the same "thinness" (but with a darker black). The RT's black ink always have looked faded to me and they all definitely run out of ink way too rapidly or even a mediocre writer/drawer/whatever.

The RT has the "clicker" ability (which I originally wanted this pen to be and would buy another one if it were a "clicker") but the cap removal process isn't a big deal. I've actually started to like the look of the cap and the way it snaps on makes it feel like it's a high class pen.

Overall, this pen is one of the best that I've used.

A marvelous everyday pen. This pen is my favorite. I have been ordering other pens to try them out and I always end up coming back to this one. I have gone through 11 of these pens so far and plan to continue using them. Some may find the line too thin, but I like it. The rubber grip seems to wear out and get a bit loose over longer periods of time (after replacing the inkwell once or twice). The cap also becomes a touch loose over a similar time period. I always put two or three of these on any Jetpens order I make. At the risk of making these pens be out of stock more frequently, I would recommend this pen to anyone looking for a hardworking, high quality, everyday pen.

i bought this pen expecting to be able to ink drawings for watercolor since it said it was waterproof, but this pen smears SO easily i'm incredibly disappointed.

also, as others have said, the ink flows out of the pen very smoothly, but the actual design of the pen makes it a bit uncomfortable to write with. it may just be that it's a bit wider than im used to

The best everyday pen sold by JetPens. Can be used for writing and for drawing. Waterproof. Mitsubishi (Uni Ball) makes fantastic products. My favorite brand.

Nice Pen, but beware!... the tip is really thin and sharp (even for writing, for my taste 0.38mm)...but also very precise. It never drips.. I would use to draw little details in my drawings.

I love this pen...and what a bargain! The .38 nib is nice and thin--but not too thin!--perfect writing and sketching. If your printing or cursive writing is flat and characterless, get this pen and start doodling. Your fingers don't know what they've been missing!

I don't understand the appeal of this pen at all. It does dry quickly, but it's a scratchy, skipping pain to write with. Nowhere near as nice as an Energel.

I'm a leftie and I write overhand, maybe this works better for other people. But I was very disappointed.
