The Pilot G-2 is an absolute classic in the pen community. It has been around forever, and has crossover appeal to people in the pen community, and the average pen user. When I saw this pen in the 0.38mm tip variety I got super excited, and had to buy a pack. It's rare to find a sub 0.5mm tip in a big box store. Like all of the other sizes in the Pilot G-2 line, this pen did not let me down.
This pen looks like any other G-2. It has the same sleek body, big rubber grip, and weird brownish/yellowish substance at the back of the ink that I have always been fond of. It's like dark jeans, or a pair of Wayfarers, it doesn't go out of style and it gets the job done.
This pen writes as well as any other G-2. The ink is super dark, flows nicely, and is very reliable. With the smaller tip it does not flow as smooth as say a 0.7mm tip, which was kind of tricky for me to get used to. It is a lot more controlled. I also have fairly big hand writing which does not cater well to the micro tip. Using this pen forces me to write smaller, which I don't mind.
Overall another great writing utensil from Pilot, and the G-2 line of pens is not tarnished.
