My New Favorite Gel Pen
I like gel pens. My favorite type of pen is a fountain pen, but they aren't always practical. So for everyday use I like gel pens.
I've been searching for the perfect gel pen since they invented them. There have been a few along the way that have been pretty good and many that were pretty bad. But then I found the Uniball Signo 207.
So far, it's wonderful. I like the fine writing of the .5 mm tip (they also come in .7 mm). The ink stroke is clean, sharp, and doesn't bleed through the pages of my Moleskine notebook. Another biggy is the blue. Usually I'm a black ink person for my everyday pens. The blues generally available are uninspiring. The blue ink of the Uniball Signo 207 has just enough yellow in it to brighten and lighten the color.
