Widely regarded as the ultimate Japanese gel ink pen, the Pilot Hi-Tec-C is the perfect choice for any writing or artistic endeavor. It has become a favorite of students, artists, architects and designers around the world.
There are two secrets to the incredible success of the Pilot Hi-Tec-C.
Secret number one involves the three-point mounting system which supports the carbide ball. Three dimples around the tip of the pipe allow the ball to rotate in a natural, frictionless manner. This allows for the highly precise lines that the Pilot Hi-Tec-C is known for.
Secret number two is all about the ink. No matter how small the pen tip is, it is impossible to write fine lines if the ink bleeds. The Hi-Tec-C uses a special "biopolymer ink" that uses resin made from microbes, such as yeast. This allows the ink to flow smoothly and cleanly from the tip, and prevents the ink from bleeding on the page.
What We Think
The writing experience makes the Pilot Hi-Tec-C one of the most sought after Japanese pens on the market today. Pick one up and you will see why.
The super thin points allow for a precision unheard of compared to the thick, unwieldy pens found at your local office supply store. The wide range of tip sizes (0.25mm, 0.3mm, 0.4mm, 0.5mm) and colors (currently over 35) give you unparalleled flexibility and choice.
Students can take notes with the Blue 0.4mm, annotate with Lime Green, and highlight with Mandarin Orange. Artists can ink and letter with the 0.3mm Black Grip model. Writers can edit with the 0.3mm Red. Executives can upgrade to the Cavalier brass barrel. The Slim Knock and Grip models even have barrels made from recycled material.
Your options are endless.
