Better than Sharpies!!! I am converting from Sharpies, the oil ink in these pens
is superb. They are much more accurate and way less smelly than the ink from
typical felt tip permanent ink pens. I haven't found a glossy surface this
doesn't write to properly.
Caution is that the permanent ink is quite permanent!! I think I marked one of
my fingertips with this ink and it's still there after quite a few washes...
I love these pens, they are amazing! The tip isn't scratchy, the felt tip is
just really smooth and the ink is definitely high quality. At the price they
come at, I have made this my go to pen. Maybe it's because I'm an engineer, but
I just love this pen and the nice fine, dark lines. :)
This is an excellent and sturdy pencil. I'm not a fan of the looks, but the grip
is a nice combination of two different rubber textures which guard against
slipping. The the clip is all metal so I don't have to worry about breaking it
off in stressful test situations.
The only downside other than my preference for appearance is that the tip is not
retractable (not pocket safe). Otherwise, this is a very reliable pencil.
I like the form factor since I have relatively small hands, but I would suggest
the .4 over these. The pen does make fine lines but the writing experience is
really "scratchy" and not smooth like I am used to with Pilot gel pens.
In comparison, the Signo Bit .18 is much finer but writes much "smoother" than
this pen. Go with the .4 for a smoother writing experience.
This is a great pen! The ink is super smooth and I was skeptical about the
"erasing" but it erases super clean without smear or mess, like magic! I
definitely would love to try out the .5 version soon.
