| The Signo UM-151 has...
, June 16, 2012
The Signo UM-151 has quickly become my everyday, go-to pen. The ink flows
incredibly smooth, there is no scratchiness, and the ink dries quickly with no
bleed on every paper I have used so far. I chose the 0.5mm simply because I had
some experience with a store-bought Signo in the 0.38mm size, and I found it a
little scratchy for my taste. Obviously, this is a personal choice. I know
that many of the reviewers here love the ultra-fineness of the 0.38mm.
I will tell you that the 0.5mm in this pen is unlike any 0.5mm I have used that
was purchased from a store in the US. This pen produces a finer line without
the scratchiness I usually associate with a fine, metal point. The grip is very
comfortable, and this pen has been a joy to write with, even when taking copious
notes as I do with my job.
When it comes to color, I have to admit, I love this orange. Is it the most
professional color, no. However, I'm not handing my notes into my boss to be
graded. I use this color in combination with two others to color code my notes.
Also use this to underline and highlight material. Fantastic, bright, yet
deep, orange color.
I will definitely be ordering more of these, as I anticipate using them often.
