The Pentel Slicci is a gel ink pen. This is a writing instrument that should appeal to those that like an ultra slim barrel on their pen. The 0.7mm metal tip writes a smooth 0.35mm line, I found the ink to be free flowing & I loved the purple colour. The only criticism of the performance was that it did skip once or twice when held at some angles.
Pentel promote the fact that they strive to make a positive contribution to the environment, minimising use of natural resources. They ceased to use anything that knowingly harms the environment back in 1995 & the Recycology™ program ensures that today all products are made from materials that are at least 50% recycled.
The Pentel Slicci is made from 87% recycled material. It has a transparent plastic barrel with a bright silver nib housing around the fine metal tip, a Pentel logo & detail is just below the grip. The panelled grip sections have small rows of horizontal lines that make for a non slip writing experience. The end stopper on the pen is colour coded to the ink & the cap has a relatively strong pocket clip with a silver insert sporting the Slicci logo.
A capped pen that's available in a selection of 8 colours including a vibrant orange, pink & sky blue.
Supplied with a medium 0.7mm ball with acid free metallic gel ink that is quick drying & can be refilled.
As I've already mentioned I love the vibrant shade of purple that this pen left on the page, just can't get used to such a slim barrel for writing anything other than a brief note. I am however a believer in the saying there is a place for everything & this is the sort of pen I'd have in my collection for writing cards, making entries in the diary or adding notes in my photo album.
