The Uni Mitsubishi Pin Pen was one of the most requested items at JetPens, and we were finally able to stock them a few weeks ago. I personally have been wanting to load up on them for a while after getting my first one from Carmen’s Great European Vacation nearly two years ago.
For those of you familiar with the Sakura Pigma Micron, the Uni Pin is very comparable. The pigment ink is water proof and fade resistant, and lays down as clean of a line as you can imagine with its felt tip. The written review above is of the 01 (0.28mm) blue ink model, and I am really pleased with it. The tip feels firm, and the lines are sharp. The shade of blue is darker than both the Sakura Pigma Micron and the Sharpie Pen, which I like. Uni even managed to smooth out the ridges in the grip area so they don’t dig into your fingers like some other pens.
The Uni Mitsubishi Pin comes in three tip sizes - 01 (0.28mm), 02 (0.33mm), 03 (0.38mm) - each available in black, blue, or red ink. There is also an oil-based ink model made to write on plastic, glass, or fabric which I have yet to test.
If you are a fan of felt tip or drawing pens, these are well worth trying out.
