I LOVE this pen, and all the DX UM-151s. I teach at the U of Utah, and this is the pen I use to grade all of my student's papers. The tip is fine enough that I can make little corrections in the margins and between lines; the "Bordeaux Black" color is red enough to seem like it's chastising my students for their silly mistakes, but not so red that they feel violated (turns out that bright red pens have a negative effect on students); and the smoothness is unlike any other pen with a tip this fine. The "blotchiness" that another reviewer mentioned is, for me, more like a fountain pen's "flair" once you get more used to it (perfect for writing kanji). Finally, one of the greatest features about this gel pen compared to every other gel pen I've used is the speed at which it dries--it's a smooth, fine gel ink that won't smudge. Awesome, awesome pen. Also great for writing in the margins of books.

I absolutely love these pens. I have the black and the bordeaux black in 0.38. The line thickness in perfect for editing small text and writing notes. The tip is very sturdy yet delicate. I love the feel of this pen. Good weight--not too heavy nor too light--and the plastic barrel fits my grip rather well. It is a delight to write with and I LOVE the bordeaux black color, in fact it might be my favorite color at the moment. My one complaint, and it is very annoying, is that the ink frequently runs dry and I need to scribble on scrap paper to get it going again. This is the one reason why this pen hasn't surpassed my other two favorites: the Hi-Tec C and the Slicci 0.4 pens.

This pen could be my new favorite. It's comfortable to hold and writes extremely smoothly, and the ink is a beautiful, unusual, but dignified burgundy color (I mean, bordeaux!). I just wish there were refills available!

I love this pen so much!...

I love this pen so much! The colour is such a beautiful maroon/burgundy. I use this for my school notes when I'm bored of plain old black/blue. It's so much more colourful than black/blue but dark enough to read easily. The pen itself writes beautifully, very smooth like all the other Uniball Signo DX pens, with no skipping or blotting at all.

Love it, especially the color! Writing is smooth, negligible skipping. Haven't used it much yet but anticipate ordering more!

It is a bordeaux wine color than black, unlike the other black series. Still a gorgeous color though. Writes smoothly like all other uni-ball signo UM-151's. Love it!

This is a dark red, pretty much a burgundy shade. It writes really smoothly with no skipping at all. Very pretty.
