If you are looking for the equivalent(and probably even better version) of the
High tech C try the Uni-Ball Signo DX 0.28mm or the zebra sarasa 0.3 mm. Both
are absolutely fantastic pens in all respects, and are even better because
they're cheaper than the high tech c. Both also come with a grip and do not have
a fragile needle point like the high tech c.

A good pen, ink can actually be the same or thinner than the 0.18 uni-ball. It
is better for long, straight lines (eg. cross-hatching) than for short, sketchy
ones that the uni-ball is good at. Its ink is much thinner than the Slicci,
which is also 0.25. Sometimes the ink seems to stop flowing and things get a bit
scratchy. Note: this pen is not waterproof, and will bleed strange purplish
tones if exposed to water. The 0.18 uni-ball is waterproof.
Everything has its use, though. I use this pen to write small notes, and for
cross-hatching in comics. It's good at both of those.

At first I thought that I really liked this pen (I bought this pen along with
the uni-ball signo bit .28), but not long after I started using it the ink
stopped flowing consistently and then pretty much refused to write more than one
word without choking up. I bought this pen over a year ago and test it
periodically to see if it has decided to work... but it still won't. My
uni-ball, however, is still my primary note-taking pen and I have never had a
problem with it. I suppose that it is possible that I simply recieved a
defective pen, but I have ordered dozens of products from Jetpens and never had
a similar problem
In summary; disappointing pen!

This pen is great for a pencil-like experience on high-quality paper (I have
several Rhodia pads), but even then the tip can give me the sensation as though
it's cutting into the paper. I barely press down when I write, so it's not a
pressure issue on my end. If you intend to use this pen on not-fancy paper its
best application is that of a fine-edge knife. The pen is snobby, I suppose.
Other reviewers who suggested to buy a size or two up are spot-on; I have
several Hi-Tec .4's that provide the same lines as Signo .28's or Slicci .25's.
If you like a pencil-quality line in ink, and you use smooth, high-quality
paper, you and this pen will be very happy together.

Hands down my favorite pen. I bought every gel pen on Jetpens under .4 mm, and
in one clean swoop decided that this is by far the best. The tip size is very
small, however if you have a light hand the ink will continue to flow well. At
first, expect to have a hard time with this pen, but after a little writing it
will be a very enjoyable experience.
