Pilot Japan has five Yawaragi (literally translated as being softened color) colors in their extensive Hi-Tec-C line. These beautiful, fine gel pens write in pastel colors with the same smoothness at the rest of the line. Great for works that need a lighter color touch.

Current Yawaragi colors include: Usuzumi (Light Sumi Gray), and Kurikawa (Chestnut Bark Brown) only. Other colors have been discontinued by Pilot.

I love the Hi-Tec-C, and was excited to find it in this subtle gray. I use it for lettering and making cards -- it's a very nice, graphite-esque color that looks really lovely when paired with the gray Kuretake Fudebiyori brush pen. Also, when writing letters or notes, it's perfect for when black is too dramatic and colors are too fruity.

I like to color code my notes and this pen came in handy when I wanted to copy down example problems without having them distract me from definitions and formulas and whatnot. It writes about as dark as a 2b pencil so it's fairly visible on white paper. I didn't have a problem with a bending/scratchy/skipping tip in 0.5. (quick note: out of 15 0.5 Hi-Tec-C's I own, only 1 was scratchy and wasn't smooth)

Recently I've used this pen for sketches and it works very nicely. The ink gets nicely dark without going black if you go over a line a few times but with just a quick pass, it's light enough to not be distracting. I certain would repurchase and I think I'll also try this color in 0.4 :D

Inferior Pen. I'm a big fan of Hi-Tec C's [0.3's & 0.4's] and they are my favorite all-around utilitarian pens, but NOT this particular 0.5— it's unusable. The ink resembles a fine point lead pencil with hard dull led that doesn't show, but worse - the tip bends under pressure, it writes scratchy, and skips. I won't be purchasing any more 0.5's.
