I stopped by Muji this past weekend to look for some supplies, and saw this retractable gel ink pen. I have several Muji RTs, but it was the color of this one that caught my eye: a medium blue-gray/steel blue that looked quite inviting. There was another color I hadn't seen before as well, so I bought both and went on my way (the other will be posted later this week, as I haven't tried that one out yet).
Muji pens are fantastic and inexpensive, and there are now some interesting colors beyond the standard blue-black-green-red to choose from. This steel blue comes in0.38mm only, or at least only at the one Muji I went to on W. 19th Street. For $1.50 I am inclined to buy several with this color and some other refill colors and just swap out the steel-blue when I need to change. The point is sharp, which makes the line crisp and thin. And the steel-blue color complements the Doane Paper I used for my try out, rather than fading it out and making the writing hard to decipher (a problem I've had with some thin line pens). All in all, a definite keeper. If you are near a Muji, check this pen and color out.
