The G-Tec-C pen is the International version of the Hi-Tec-C. Pens may be labeled differently by manufacturers depending on country region. Some of our customers are more familiar with the G-Tec-C line so we brought them in!

What are Hi-Tec C/G-Tec-C pens?

These pens are special pens that are currently very popular in Asia. They are highly sought after in the US, but are very difficult to find in stores.

The fine tipped point of Pilot Hi-Tec C and G-Tec-C pens allow you to write with incredible precision. Moreover the ink is chemically formulated so that it will not bleed after it dries.

Thin gel pen fans immediately recognize the brilliant design of these pens. They are available in different point sizes and in a variety of colors.

Just to remind people...
December 16, 2009
Just to remind people as it seems that many do not know... to write with small diameter pens you should use smooth paper, that is quality type of paper such as Rhodia, Clairefontaine etc, not the usual domestic crap you find in Staples and other common stores. You could use it on those cheap rough papers but the pen will skip and you will ruin the tip of the pen. So you have to use good french made paper (other make good paper too eg Japanese, Italian) and you will love drawing or writing with these type of pens.

Had to add that in as some people complain [likely not knowing about quality of paper required for good results] about skipping etc, not only these pens but almost any other tiny diameter of pen.

Remember the two high quality papers: Clairefontaine notebooks of various sizes (this one is best and is much thicker than Rhodia, and Rhodia is very common. I use Rhodia blank notebooks in size A4 for sketching and doodling while for writing I use Clairefontaine notebooks of both pocket and A4 size for writing important notes for home [studies, archival notes...I still have to have written notes/articles on paper as i do not trust computers 100%...they eventually crash..I know backup etc, but that also crashes believe me]. Nothing beats writing on nice paper.

I love these pens for...
July 17, 2009
I love these pens for fine tuning watercolors and for making very, very thin lines. I use them, also to fill in very small gaps that my calligraphy pen left. LOVE it!!!! The Signo .18 is also a great pen.... even smaller than this one if you can believe that! This is needle fine.

Loveeee this magnificent pen. Around me in this nation, I struggle to find pens so simply structured as this that still work masterfully. I'm likely to buy some with different coloured inks very soon. Bravisimo.

These are great sketching pens, I haven't tried the bigger sizes, but I tend to go for Uni-ball Signo bit .18 and .25, the 0.3 Copic Multiliners, Artline .05 etc... I just like very delicate lines, now the Micron 005 fails at this level, 01 is the smallest I can go because just like the Pentel Hybrid Technica 03, they can't always keep up with how fast I draw and forget about rougher papers. However, the G-Tec-C 0.25 just flows, it's great for fast lines on most of the papers I play with, including some hot press watercolor papers. The ink isn't waterproof, I have no idea about the light-fastness, but I mostly use this pen for those initial gestural ideas. With a bit of practice you can even get a bit of line variety. I have used it to take notes, but it's not ideal for that, it's best for quickly capturing something on a small scale. I carry a sketchbook in my wallet, so consider that for comparison. I've had several of these and I didn't realize how much I missed it until they all ran out.

I just want to buy a box of refills.

Let me begin by saying that I own this pen in all point sizes. It's a go-to writing instrument in other sizes, but sadly this width (the 0.25) falls short. I would definitely avoid the 0.25 mm and go instead to the 0.3mm point. I wanted to like it - I really did. But not only was it unusable from the moment I opened it, it remained that way. Oh the humanity! Maybe I got a bad one. Maybe. But I just cannot bring myself to order a new one and shell out the $3.00 to risk it because I pretty much know where it's going to end - me with another useless pen. Rather today I'm ordering (for the 3rd time), the .3 and .4mm.

I read the other reviews, and while I agree w/ the one suggesting the use of smooth paper, I can attest to the fact that my point failure was NOT operator-error. Mine never worked. This pen's failure was not a casualty of excess pressure, though that could easily happen so be forewarned. My recommendation - click on over to this pen in the 0.3mm and 0.4 mm. Make sure that you note that there's a version w/ a grip and one without (this one). I prefer no grip.
