I write very small but love a bold, consistent line. Until I bought the Maica,
I settled with the not-quite-dark-enough but smooth line of the 0.38mm Uniball
Signo and the bold but slightly too thick 0.35mm Pentel EnerGel. I've tried
other pens in the Hi-Tec-C line and found them too scratchy, but decided to give
the Maica a shot because I'm a sucker for needle-point pens and it's very nice
looking. I'm glad I gave it a try because this is definitely my new favorite
pen! The 0.4mm is thin enough to accommodate my small handwriting but still
lays down a nice dark line without skipping or scratching. I also bought the
six-color set and have been very impressed with the quality of the colors. I
should mention that I use Levenger paper, which makes most pens look pretty
nice, but at this price point you might as well pick one up and try it yourself!
