Pilot Metropolitan Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Violet Leopard Body - PILOT 91138
  I love this pen to pieces...., June 6, 2014
I love this pen to pieces. It looks great, has a good weight, and the fine nib writes smoothly (line thickness similar to an 0.4mm roller ball) with only a slight amount of scratching on a Field Notes memo book.

I previously had the medium nib "dot" version of this pen, and it wrote about an 0.7 mm equivalent line thickness and bled a bit on the Field Notes memo book. I recommend both versions.

I'm still using the ink cartridge it came with.
Ohto Dude Fountain Pen - Fine Nib - Purple Body - OHTO FF-15DD PURPLE
  I'm coming back to fountain..., April 17, 2014
I'm coming back to fountain pens after a long hiatus. I love the way this pen looks and feels in my hand. It writes very smoothly. The cap is secure on the front and back.

The one thing I don't like about it is that it's really not a fine nib. It lays down a pretty thick line, comparable to an 1.0mm pen. I got the Pilot Metropolitan pen at the same time. Although that pen is labeled as a medium nib, it lays down a thinner line than this one.
Pilot Hi-Tec-C Coleto Multi Pen - Stylus Component - PILOT LHKRF-15T
  This does not work as..., September 22, 2012
This does not work as a capacitive stylus for iPhone and other modern smart phones. It's for pressure-touch screens only. It would be nice if JetPens mentioned that in the description of this item.
Uni-ball Signo UM-151 Gel Ink Pen - 0.28 mm - Black - UNI UM15128.24
  I just bought eleven..., August 25, 2010
I just bought eleven different kinds of pens and this is my favorite of the bunch. I scarcely have to use any pressure to produce a consistent fine line. Comfy to hold. My one concern is that when I store the cap on the back of the pen it seems a little loose there.
Pentel EnerGel Needle-Point Liquid Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Violet Purple - PENTEL BLN15-V
  I love the rich color..., August 25, 2010
I love the rich color and the extreme smoothness, and the pen is comfortable to hold. The line produced seems thicker than the line on other 0.5mm pens.
Pilot FriXion Erasable Gel Ink Pen - 0.5 mm - Violet - PILOT LFB-20EF-V
  I love the ink color...., August 25, 2010
I love the ink color. The ink seems to blot a bit.
Uni Jetstream Standard Ballpoint Pen - 0.5 mm - Black Ink - Lavender Body - UNI SXN15005.34
  This pen puts down a..., August 25, 2010
This pen puts down a tidy thin line but I found that it skipped some unless I put the paper down on a flat surface and used a certain amount of pressure. The 0.7mm version didn't have that problem but the line wasn't as delicate.
Zebra Surari Emulsion Ink Pen - 0.7 mm - Fluorescent Violet Ink - ZEBRA BN11-KVI

The ink flow feels a bit sticky compared to the 0.5mm and this ink color is lighter than I would have preferred. Comfy to hold.
