What are Hi-Tec C pens?

Pilot Hi-Tec C pens are special pens that are currently very popular in Japan. 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 pens allow you to write with incredible precision. Moreover the ink is chemically formulated so that it will not bleed after it dries.

Hi-Tec C fans immediately recognize the brilliant design of these pens. They are available in .25mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm and 0.5mm sizes and in a variety of colors.

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.

By eugenebl - See all my reviews
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.

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.

By sheepdogg325 - See all my reviews
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!

I bought this pen with the intention of drawing with it. It worked really well at first, it produced surprisingly black lines for how this they were. Over time the ink flow became a lot less consistent to the point where it is really hard for me to use and be confident in it, although, with coxing it work well again at times. Because the nib is so small it can be a challenge to write or draw with the pen without it feeling like you are stabbing the paper. Along with that, I did find that it is a bit fussy with some paper. The nib can clog with fibers sometimes if you are using a paper that has even a little bit of tooth to it.
I am left handed and since this pen falls under the "left handed" tag, I wanted to say I did not have any issues with smearing, but writing was little frustrating because of how small the nib is.
Overall good, but I would recommend the 0.4 mm before this pen
