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.

These pens actually improved my otherwise atrociously illegible and embarrassing handwriting! Didn't think that was possible! I find the 0.5 nib hits the sweet spot. Not too thin so as to be scratchy and not to broad to be messy. My theory: the fine nib slows down the hand to allow more control over the handwriting, otherwise the hand slops all over the paper contributing to sloppy handwriting. Wish Pilot would make a 0.5 blue refill for the Cavalier! I have several 'go to' pens I use daily but this one tops the list. I agree with the comment that experimentation is needed with different nib sizes from the various brands because 0.5 for one brand is not the same as 0.5 from another brand. At least that's my experience.

I tried out both the 0.5mm and the 0.4mm Hi-Tec-C. The 0.4mm pen writes smoothly. The 0.5mm pen writes very smoothly. They both are fine pens.

The cap is tight fitting, and requires a bit of force to remove.

I differ from many people in that I usually dislike really think ink lines: I usually need thicker lines to force me to write larger letters so that people don't need magnifying glasses to read my notes. However, for a day-planner, this pen works wonderfully, especially if you annotate your schedule. What I really like about this pen, though, is that the cap "snaps" when posted; you don't have to worry about loosing it!

This has quickly become my favorite pen. The point is perfect-very fine but still the pen writes very smooth. I'm going to have to order more very soon as I use it all the time.

A nice pen for fine, detailed work, such as numbering, sketching, table work. The .5 mm is a bit fine for my writing.
