I have both the Slicci and the Slicci Techo Mini. The plain Slicci gave me horrible results. The Techo Mini has been better, though. I really like the design; the metal housing, smooth action, and small size make this a great pen to store hidden away. I used it for a chemistry lab notebook and the small tip really helped me keep a clean record. I didn't use it for extended periods so the lack of a grip wasn't an issue, but if my hands were sweating at all the pen became more difficult to hold. Although I was able to deplete refills a few times there were a few that quit flowing prematurely, and skipping was always an issue. I haven't tried another pen with this kind of form factor so I can't recommend a competing model. I keep this as a mere backup because I'm not very satisfied with the refills and I don't need to have a pen this small. I've switched to the Uni-ball Signo 0.28, which hasn't had any problems with skipping or refills dying prematurely, though I haven't drained the core that it came with yet.

Verified Purchase
I couldn't get more than half of the ink out of these before they stopped flowing. I'm not a hard writer, and I was just writing in a standard quadruled notebook. I went through four refills, including the one that came in the pen. I'm really disappointed with the Slicci. I have the Slicci Techo Mini as well, and it's given me some trouble, too. The Techo Mini has been more reliable, but I've still had to replace refills that stopped flowing with a substantial amount of ink left in them. Even while the ink was flowing the Slicci's skipped a bit. Other than the refills, the pen is fine. I really like the design, though the cap doesn't stay on the back end very well. I've switched to the Uni-ball Signo 0.28, and although I haven't gotten through a whole refill yet, my results have been better than with the Slicci's.
