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 like to color code..., October 21, 2013

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..., September 1, 2012

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.
