Verified Purchase
I use these to draw what I see with the microscope (histology). These colors are good for most of the stains I use, but replace the pink with "pure pink" to get a better set.

This ink does not run, even if I spill alcohol or water on a drawing - which happens a lot more often than it should.

I highly recommend these for laboratory use.

This is a very comfortable pencil to write with. Everything about it is as advertised. However, the clip fell off almost immediately. I don't really care, it was a horrible clip to begin with. I have not ever broken a lead with this pencil and it is completely reliable. The sliding sleeve allows me to write so long that I'm often surprised when I have to push the button. A previous reviewer thought that the lead breakage claim was over-stated. My daughter often bangs my pencils and pens unconsciously on the desk top when she's thinking. These 0.5 mm leads cannot survive that, but that can't be blamed on the pencil. This is a very good deal and works very well.

For histology drawings, for biology or anatomy classes, this is the pink (Pure Pink) you need. I teach Biology and recommend this one to my classes. The Uni 151 Violet and Blue go best with this pink (Pure pink).

This is a good color for histology, better than the uni-ball pinks which are too fluorescent. Also good is the Sarasa purple for histology.

Verified Purchase
This is the best multipen I own. It writes very smoothly, the colors are saturated, the black is black (not gray) and it's hefty enough to give good control for neat writing. I have tried many others, like Zebra Sarasa, Pilots of all kinds, Bic's, Platinums, and Cross, but for smoothness of writing, none come close.

Thank you IMG for pointing out that you can erase stuff from the other side of the paper!

I love these things. They are much easier to write with and erase than a pencil. They are also water-proof and alcohol-proof in case you spill stuff a lot.

This fits in the fold of my ordinary single fold leather wallet. I have used other tiny pens, but this one, with the cap posted is a full length pen. Very nice. It writes well, too and looks great.

Verified Purchase
I like this pencil for everything except the sliding sleeve on mine is annoyingly scratchy. As long as the lead is sticking more that a millimeter it's ok, but as soon as it gets short it has to be lengthened. At this point you might be thinking - of course, that's what the shaker is for! But, a sliding sleeve on other pencils like the Pentel "sliding sleeve Sharp" (that's what they call it) is smooth and allows you to write until you've used about 4 mm of lead before you have to click again. Too bad.

Verified Purchase
I teach college Biology and my students often have to draw what they see under the microscope. The best colors for this are pink, blue and purple. Typically they use colored pencils, but pencils, no matter how sharp, are usually too blunt to draw any detail. I tried these out and they work great. Thin lines, great color, erasable and don't need sharpening. I am going to recommend these to my class this spring.

Verified Purchase
These pens will write on hard surfaces like glass, if you write slowly. You may have to start the ink with a scrap of paper first. The colors are very good, although I wish there were a purple instead of the blue-black. They are not like paint or markers, the colors will not blend, but they can be used to decorate plastic and glass items. I use them to mark stuff in the lab where I work. I write my initials on glassware, pens and things like that to identify them. My tests have shown that acetone, alcohol and water will not wash this ink off of anything or out of anything after it dries, so it's the perfect lab marker for labeling and notebooks.

By the way, the cartridge fits perfectly in a Pilot G2 pen if you don't like separate caps. The ink will not dry out without a cap.

I suspect that Pilot is going to drop these, so get a few while you can. They are the ultimate graffiti pen.
