Review: Pentel Slicci 0.25mm

Pentel SlicciEveryone knows I love the Pentel Slicci.  It has permanent residence in my Top Five (see sidebar), usually taking the #1 or #2 spot, depending on how I am feeling at the time.  If by chance you didn't already know how much I love the Slicci, then "Hi, my name is Brad, and I am a Pen Addict.  Welcome to my blog!"

This wonderful rainbow of of 0.25mm Pentel Sliccis were sent to me by Pentel of America, and for that I am very thankful.  I actually have and 0.25mm Slicci floating around here somewhere, but until they sent me this 8-pack, I had forgotten how much I liked this size tip.  For normal use, I had been sticking with the 0.4mm version in black mostly, but it is pretty amazing how Pentel can cut the tip size almost in half and keep the smooth writing ability as if it was a pen twice its width.  I actually took my 0.4mm Slicci out of my everyday pen case and replaced it with the 0.25mm.  In my world, that's like getting called up from Double-A straight to the big leagues.

The other thing that always impresses me with the Slicci is how vibrant the ink colors are.  There are no washed out colors here.  All of these different shades are a blast to use.  Office Supply Geek got a set of these as well, so be sure to check out that review, and if you have never tried a Slicci before you are really missing out.
