Pentel make it their mission to develop pens that offer a satisfying writing experience & I found that the Slicci Gel Pen definitely delivered on this.
Given a choice I will usually go for a medium tip, considering the Pentel Slicci Gel Ink Pen has a 0.7mm tip I expected it to produce a wider line than it did. This is not a criticism however, this pen was lovely to write with, the ink flowed smoothly from the metal tip & was quick drying laying down a neat 0.35mm line without a smudge in sight.
Something I’m not so sure about is the barrel, it is shorter & slimmer than the average pen & the grip section is made up of a series of small raised plastic ridges which just don’t cut it for me when writing for any length of time, give me a squishy rubbery panel any time & I’m happy. The transparent body allows you to view the ink level which could prove useful if you’re working on a project with anything other than a bog standard colour as you may not have a substitute to hand to finish the job.
Pentel Slicci Gel Pens are available in 8 colours including sky blue, pink & orange, I am using black ink which is bright & vivid. The ink is acid free making the pens handy for scrap booking as its less likely to fade over time. They can be bought individually or in packs of 12 & eco warriors will be pleased to note that they are made up of 87% recycled materials.
