I’ve always liked Micron pens in spite of my fetish for fountain pens. The only thing I don’t like is their short life and disposable nature. But when I saw a couple YouTube reviews of the PN (plastic nib) version of the pen, they peaked my interest. Those reviews both suggested that this was a “writing” pen and mostly dismissed the variable line width aspect of the pen. To me, that variability was the reason to try one.
So far I’ve only found them available on Amazon as a set of eight colors, which, to quote Shania Twain, “don’t impress me much,” but the pen sure does. It won’t give as much width variation as a fude fountain pen but you can more easily control fine line widths and get the width of an 02 to 05/08 width simply by changing the pressure on the tip. The PN delivers the same bullet-proof ink that Micron pens always produce.
My example is a test drive of the pen while sitting on our deck as it rained – a recurrent condition these days. They depict my wife’s garden boots.
I do hope these become available as singles as I’d like to get my hands on a few more.
