Finest pens ever.

The smallest tip is 0.20mm, and .5 is the largest... Lol. I have pens [url="http://www.gellyroll.com/products/pens/pigmamicron/micronchart.html"]01, 03, and 05[/url]. You should be able to get these at any art store that's worth it's weight in beans and dried fruit.
Ok, first your link doesn't work. It sends me to the w3.org. The link in mine should be fine.
Second, I really get annoyed with companies that brag about being the most,
especially when it's untrue.. Like I said, You can get .18 Gel Signos if you order direct from Japan. Which is smaller than .2...
That said, maybe the ink doesn't feather? I definitely prefer gel for writing fine lines, gel doesn't feather into the paper. The one problem I've had with every micro point pen is the same as the problem I'm having with my current pen. It works great until I try to use it over something I white out. Then it starts stuttering... edit - So I'm certianly willing to give it a try if I see it at an art shop next time I go by.
Edit. Zen san. There seems to be a problem with linking. His original link had http:// but the url link auto inserted another http:// so the url read http://http://
that's why I got shunted to w3.org's how to enter a url page.
So what is waiting for me is a nearly impossible task...coz in Poland we have 5mm Squares... what would be the most accurate pen? ...please tell me ;P so that i will be able to start practising
If you only have the 5mm ones like we do, then Just use 4 boxes at a time. It will really pay off later when you do start writing smaller, because it gets you in the habit of dividing up the character space into 4 parts. Ultimately, the smallest readable size of your writing is determined by the size of your pen. So if you find yourself cramped, then either write in bigger squares, or get a smaller pen.
Really, getting a really fine pen isn't necessary, it's just a boon to writing small well. You can write just fine with a 1.0 pen, or even a big ol' piece of chalk. You just need to write bigger is all. You don't need special materials.
