I picked this pen up at the University Co-op Art Supply Store in Austin, Texas. I have only a few orange pens so I decided to branch out and get something different than my usual pink and purple. This orange makes me think of orange sherbet. Yum.
Pentel Slicci 0.7 mm nib.
In Quo Vadis Habana with Clairefontaine 90 g bright white paperOne great thing all Sliccies have in common is their gorgeous, vibrant ink! The colors are bold and never faded or washed out. One thing I was certainly curious about was how this 0.25 mm nib would write. The 0.7 mm puts down great, solid lines without skipping or scratching at a normal pace. If I moved the tip quickly over the paper (faster than most people would probably write), it got a little scratchy and I'd have to go back to fill in some white spaces. I was thinking writing with the 0.25 may be initially scratchy like when you’re first breaking in a Pilot Hi-Tec C 0.3 mm. I was surprised to find the ink started flowing almost instantly. Once the ink is going, it doesn’t seem to skip, even with such a thin nib. I am impressed with the ink flow. Sharp, clean lines, and no feathering. Not surprisingly, it's not as inky smooth as the 0.7 mm nib. But some people prefer minimal ink flow for writing.

Comparing Pentel Slicci 0.25 mm orange nib and 0.7 mm purple nibThis pen appears to be marketed as an art supply so I tried both writing and doodling with it. I was very pleased with the writing experience, and especially the fine detail and precise drawing I could do (not that I can draw well).

In Quo Vadis Habana with Clairefontaine 90 g bright white paperOn to other things... the pen is not refillable. This makes me a little sad because it seems like such a waste to throw out the entire pen. That being said, the barrel is plastic so I wouldn't be surprised if the color started chipping off it (like it does on the Sharpie pen). Though on the bright side, the pen contains 87% recycled content.

I like these pens. I really love colorful, intense inks and the Pentel Sliccies certainly have that! The variety of nib sizes available - 0.25, 0.3, 0.4, 0.7, and 0.8 mm - is great for every need you may have. The only downsides are that it is a bit expensive, and it is not refillable, so you’ll have to pay that high cost each time you need to replace your Slicci.
