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!

Cute color and I love the thin line, but it skips and runs dry sometimes while I'm writing (even though there is plenty of ink left).

The pen can be pretty scratchy at times and the ink flow isn't too great. The color is still nice though but it's the same as many other wine red pens it just has a fancier name.

The pen leaks ink, which gets on my hands. Am I doing something wrong?
