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.

Nearly 15years ago I was working in Japan and soon discovered these unique and awesome pens.
The write a nice, consistent line and the tips does not get all mushy. Yes, they can seem scratchy if you're not doing something quite right, but that is becauseonly a thin, hard tip will write the kind of thin, .3mm type mechanical pencil kind of lines.

In Japan they sold a pack of these pens in a rainbow of colors. Don't know if that's available here, but it should be.

A few years after I got back from Japan, I asked Pilot Pens of USA why they did not have these same pens here back in the states. His response was the lamest, I-dont'know'whatist one I have ever heard, which was, "We don't sell these pens here because we want to maintain a variety of pens throughout the world."

Whch is a bit funny as I saw in Japan the same Pilot Pense the same ones we have here in the USA.

Anyway, if you are like me you want clean, un-varied lines you will like these pens...for all your writing-related stuff, especially for engineering, math, science, etc. Through the full life of the pen, the point remains just as firm as it was from the factory. I got to add, I hope to get some of these as Christmas presents this year now that I finally found them...again.

I'm sold on the Hi-Tec-C!
I've read the reviews about how great this series of pen is and I am now a believer.
I bought this in the .3mm because I think the .25 would be too thin as I'm a fast writer. The .3 was the perfect choice because you don't have to be too deliberate to get a good ink flow. It almost looks like a mechanical pencil and feels similar when writing.
That being said, I find this pen to be best suited for detail work when ink drawing and that has been it's primary use for me. I typically work in black & grey ink so the blue black adds just a touch of color to my work without being a distraction.
I will definitely be getting the .4mm in addition for daily writing and note taking.

I use these to fill out incredibly small spaces on customer required forms to maintain legibility and clarity. I use them in the full range of colors just to torment the reviewers of my paperwork.
