The pen that introduced many students and artists to the pleasures of fine Japanese gel pens, the G-Tec-C is the international version of the standard Hi-Tec-C—popular in Japan and sought-after around the world for its smooth ink and precise needle-point tip. Designed for razor-sharp precision, it features a consistent, feather-free writing experience and a textured plastic grip for improved control. Its water-resistant ink protects important notes while also allowing artists to create interesting shading effects with a brush.

This pen, its precision, the ink, pair perfectly with my Kokuyo loose-leaf paper, AND my Hobonichi Techo-bound Tomoe River paper. Awesome. Thanks again, JetPens!

This pen writes much thinner than I imagined. It's a very nice pen and there's a lot of ink to last a long time.

Pilot G-Tec pens are a reliable source for a consistent flow of dark ink. They come in a wide variety of point sizes. The finer points have excellent ink flow. I highly recommend them.

I think this pen is everything you want a fine-tipped gel pen to be. These are pretty pricey, but ever since my friend bought a pack I'd wanted to try them to. They write like a dream... on thick paper. But like with almost any other fine tip/gel pen, it'll be scratchy on thinner paper. Although, I've never had it skip no matter how thin the paper is. I guess I'm just a ball-point gal (and I remembered the hard--and expensive--way that gels are very prone to smudging, when I wrote on a bunch of senior photos only to have the gel ink smudging all over the photos underneath).

Also, these are pretty expensive, especially considering the fact that the build of the pen is quite poor. The logo "G-Tec-C" wore off very quickly, even though I only ever put my pens in a specific pouch of my backpack. It's hard plastic and can be uncomfortable to write with for a long time, but sometimes, I miss the fluidity and look of gels (much darker in comparison to the 0.5mm Jetstream black ink).
