The world’s thinnest pen?

Signo_bit_riceI have a confession. I love stationery. Dave Snowden calls it the stationery gene and I’m sure it’s firmly embedded in my DNA. So I’ve been enjoying peaking into Notebookism which seems to be all things stationery and I marvelled at a recent post on the world’s thinnest pen, the Uniball Signo Bit 0.18 mm gel pen. Great for writing on rice I believe. There must be a way to use one in my next project The world’s thinnest pen?.

    This actually isn’t the world’s thinnest pen! Copic is a Japanese marker company that specializes in artesian ink pens. The thinnest they have is 0.05. Much thinner than this. Also Faber-Castell has a .1 millimeter pen. I work with these pens all the time in my own art. Also, uniball has SHMEARFUL ink. I don’t like their ink because it dries too slowly. Faber Castell and Copic have great pens, but Faber Castell last longer and are higher quality.
