DescriptionSpecifications
Pilot's Hi-Tec-C Maica pen has the Hi-Tec-C qualities we've come to rely on, including smooth, non-feathering ink. As a bonus, it's decked out in a jewel-like body. The metallic barrel, which is decorated with an embellished "M" logo, perfectly complements the transparent cap with multi-faceted top. Just like your favorite jewelry, the facets topping the cap bounce light for a sparkly effect. Add even more pizazz by stringing charms through the cap loop. When you're not busy gazing at your pretty pen, you will enjoy the water-based gel ink and the fine tip that is specially designed to ensure smooth writing. The pen comes in many colors, and the name "Maica" encourages you to choose your own "my color" and enjoy!

This set contains 12 colors: Apricot Orange, Baby Pink, Black, Blue, Blue Black, Brown, Green, Light Blue, Orange, Pink, Red, and Violet.

I wish I could give this...

I wish I could give this set 10 stars. Pilot does it again with this pen set, and has forever instilled in me a love for the brand and its products. With many gel pen sets, you always have a few pens (usually oranges and pinks) that lay down a light, too-white line that renders the pens unusable on normal white stock paper. Not so with the Maica.

The first thing I did when I got this set was test out the lightest pen colors, particularly Apricot Orange, Baby Pink, and Light Blue. As soon as the pen tips touched paper, however, all of my fears for having three unusable pens were absolved. Not only are these colors usable, they are distinct colors in themselves. Both the Apricot Orange and Baby Pink are softer, warmer colors than their Orange and Pink counterparts. The Light Blue pen was the best surprise. The color is not light at all and is more like a vibrant sky blue hue. This became one of my favorite colors in the set, and I would even purchase this color by itself.

Also, despite the needlepoint, the pen writes incredibly smoothly with no skips or line unevenness, and wow, are the colors super vibrant.

I would recommend this pen to anyone who is looking for a needlepoint pen with vibrant ink. The packaging is a little girly (of which I am not particularly a fan, especially when I use it at work), but the writing experience is so wonderful that this is a very minimal concern for me.

This is an amazing pen....

This is an amazing pen. I saw the review on some other site and just fell in love with them even before using them.
I bought 4 blacks and 4 blues including this whole set.

The 4 blacks and 4 blues were all given away to friends and family and I'm using the set at this time.
I absolutely love them and the colours are incredibly vivid. The flow of the ink is just like Pilot Hi-tec C but glides much more softly.
Everybody who received them from me loves them and I just feel like I should get some incentives from Pilot for 'advertising' so much.

Very thin (love thin pens) and strong too!

I switch back and forth with this and Uni Signo and they all work great for me.
