One big problem. Unfortunately...
One big problem. Unfortunately, it's a big one.
When these pens are good, they're really good. They get the strokes finer than I can with the sharpest lead, and that's absolutely incredible. And vital, once you come to expect that of it.
But for every super fine pen I've received in the mail that fits the bill, there's another that seemed busted or dull at the tip. This downgrades it to a simple "fine" version of the pen. And that's not what I have in mind. There doesn't seem to be any way to guarantee this won't happen. Fortunately, they're inexpensive for such a fine pen. When I bought more, I did it in bulk just to heighten my chances of getting the fine tip I hoped for. It's simple dice-rolling.
If you've bought said pens and never had this problem, I'm happy for you. But at the same time I'm really jealous. I have no idea what you do differently to avoid this problem. D:
Excellent pen. Glaring detail lost in the shuffle. 5/5 for when it works. 2/5 when it doesn't.
