Pilot Razor Point Pens Extra Fine – Until recently, felt tip or fine tip markers (often called “fineliners”) were something I didn’t consider using on a daily basis. It wasn’t until I read Pen Addict’s reviews of the Sakura Pigma Micron — a pen I’d never tried — that I specifically picked up a marker at DaVinci Artist Supply on a business trip to New York. That first lot included a pack of Copic Multiliners in a .3mm tip (the “02” model), a Copic Multiliner in a .35mm tip, and a Sharpie “Fine” pen. I use all of these pens, and plan to post in-depth reviews of each in due course, but none of these initial purchases really did it for me as a daily writer. They work great for jotting down notes and writing – and if you want dark black ink with absolutely no bleeding, the Micron is a field note pen – but the Micron’s nib felt a bit flimsy for heavy use and I noticed the ink. Copic and Sharpies are not as dark and wet as I prefer.
Enter the pilot. I am a long time user of Pilot pens and as I mentioned in an earlier post, the Pilot Precision Liquid Ink Pen was the first pen I bought by the box when I was in school. The Pilot has excellent dark black ink, even in its disposable pens. (If, like me, you can handle a little roughness on really cheap paper, a black Pilot pen can cover all your black ink needs.) On a whim, I picked up a four-pack of Pilot V Razor “Extra Fine Marker Pens” .” . too wide They wrote that nice dark black line, but the width didn’t allow me to do the kind of little note-taking and annotation I needed at work, so I went online to see if the pilot did even numbers

After using this pen for almost a week, I can safely say that it is a great sharpener. As far as I can tell, not a single tip has failed and the ink flow has remained consistent. That said, there is some (very little) bleeding from the ink. This is a fine point that is intended for writing purposes, so the ink is not as precise and does not behave as you would find in technical drawing pens like the Pigma Micron or Copic Multiliner. What you lose in ink properties, you gain in durability, and any ink issues prevented me from using this pen in a field notes notebook on both sides of the page. I would say that with any fountain pen or rollerball you bleed less.
Pilot Razor Point
This tip is after two weeks of heavy use. There is little or no failure and the pen is still going strong. I suspect the durability of the nib might have been an issue if I had used a better machine before using the fountain pen, but durability is less of a concern for fountain pens that tend to write with less pressure.
If you’re looking for a purchase that runs around $.92/head, the Razor Point II can’t be beat IMHO. You can find Microns in the $2-3 range (per nib), but to me that’s a pretty cheap slider that stings a bit if you lose/break the nib or when the nib breaks. Only half is empty. I’m pretty sure I’ve already misplaced one of the Pilot V Razors (if it hadn’t “walked” onto my desk while I was out of town last week) and it’s eating me too. Don’t laugh, I know I’m in trouble.
