Uni Signos are solvent resistant so they are great for laboratory notebooks. Of course, orange ink isn't allowed for laboratory notebooks but, I can use them in/on my calendar.

Verified Purchase
This is the best D1 refill! I had to paint the end with a coat of nail polish to get it to work in my Yard-O-Led Esprit but, so far, so good. I have since switched most of my D1 pens (Kaweco AL Sport ballpoint and Lamy Spirit) with this refill. I haven't had a chance to assess how long it lasts, however.

I love the brass versions...
I love the brass versions of the Liliput. They have some weight to them, which makes them feel more comfortable than the aluminum variety of the Liliput (I liked those so much that I purchased two of them in the raw aluminum, EF). Clean the nib unit prior to use. I used J.B.s Perfect Flush and a Q-tip, because I was so impatient. I also used a syringe bulb...the kind that come with newborn babies, to flush the nib unit with water. I let it air dry and then installed my ink cartridge. I have Montblanc Leonardo DaVinci Chalk Red in this pen and I have to say that the combination is perfect. These pens are uncoated brass, so they take on a patina with use. I think it makes them more original.

Love these Uni Ball Signos. They are chemically resistant and work well in challenging (earth) environments.

Verified Purchase
Just received this pen and I really like it. I am mostly not a fan of ballpoints but, I do like the needlepoints from Ohto. They are great for tiny handwriting. I am always striking through mistakes in my laboratory notebook and documents that are archived and the needlepoints allow me to write very small and insert these comments in a limited space. Gel rollers are my choice, especially the Uni Ball Signos, which are chemically resistant but, I find this pen to be a plus because of the 0.5 pencil for processes where I must repeat steps. The compact size is great for pockets. I am quite happy with this pen.

This eraser is GREAT, provided you use it with certain paper types. I notice that using an excellent eraser like the Pilot Foam or the Pentel Ain (which someone sent me as an extra gift with an order...I wish I could recall who, so I could order from them more often) they do not work well on Rite-In-The-Rain or the Field Notes Expedition paper but, this eraser works wonders. It is also a GREAT way to clean suede shoes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is one of those things where you have to have the right tool for the right job. For multipurpose paper, I would use the Pilot Foam. For glossier-type, all-weather paper, try the Seed. It is made from natural rubber, so it's not hell on the planet, as well.

I love this ink! The shading is incredible. It initially looks bright red but, when it dries, it has a golden color as an overtone. I currently have it inked in a TWSBI VAC700, 1.1 and a TWSBI Diamond 530, EF. It looks great with both sizes of points. I wonder how it would work with the Monteverde One Touch Engage but, mine is filled with another color presently.

I just filled up my TWSBI mini with a 1.1mm stub nib using this ink. It has subtle shading and is a golden-green shade, rather less red than the packaging led me to believe. The quality of the ink is consistent with the other shades of Iroshizuku ink that I have. I would recommend it for its uniqueness and quality.

I love this holder. The bevels on the mahogany make detailed writing easy. It has a nice, warm look and feel. Perfect for the holidays!
