A Pilot Hi-Tec-C, therefore a great pen. But personally I prefer conical point pens. Doesn't have an anti sliding rubber, so it is a bit tiring to write with it.

The color is kind of washed out, I'm not sure if that is the desired effect of the Yawaragi colors.

I love the Hi-Tec C pens, and this color is interesting because it looks almost like graphite on paper - the color is similar to mechanical pencil line.

That being said, it seems less smooth than the standard black or blue, and maybe because of the lighter shade, it also feels like a thinner line. Compared to the .4mm blue, this pen writes more like a .3mm.

I love this pen. Now, this is my first Hi Tec C, so I cannot compare it to other styles or point sizes, but I think it's a pretty awesome pen (and is now my standard writing tool).

I have really small print, so anything larger than a .5 makes my writing look sloppy. Also, because I write so small, traditional black ink gets too overwhelming. Like a previous poster mentioned, this looks like a pencil (but with the benefit of not worrying about smudging). I purchased this pen in order to write in books without overpowering the text, and it's doing that wonderfully.

It does tend to skip depending on the paper. While it works amazingly on Kokuyo Campus, it seems to not like Clairefontaine 1951 as much.
