I write incredibly small...
, August 1, 2012
I write incredibly small and the DX in Brown Black (0.38 and 0.28) is my
signature pen. I've tried Hi Tec Cs (in 0.25, 0.3 and 0.4), Pentel Sliccis (in
0.25 and 0.3), and Zebra Sarasas (0.4). Each is a very different writing
experience and each have their strengths. For every day writing, though, my
heart belongs to Signo DX.
The tip is very strong; some say it's scratchy, but that makes me think of an
unpleasant sensation. Instead, I'd say it definitely feels firm and precise (but
not grating). Unlike Hi Tec Cs, they don't need to be "primed" by scribbling a
bunch before the ink flows evenly. The brown-black ink is gorgeous; it's dark
enough that it doesn't look gimmicky or childish (though I love those as well
:D) but just brown enough that it looks subtly different and has a rich warmth
