When I discovered the Pilot G2 0.38mm pen, it just about changed my life. Little did I know that that fine-tip gel ink pen was just the tip of the iceberg (pun intended), and I’ve since tried and used a dozen or more different brands and sorts of fine-tip gel ink pens.

While the Uni-ball Signo DX is hands down my favorite, there are many great options and it seems everyone has their own favorite. Which is why I asked Brad Dowdy, author of The Pen Addict, to write this guide for us at Tools & Toys.
