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.
Writes silky smooth and the ink is excellent; thick and quick drying. Draws a
perfect line without any issues. FYI: These pens are very slim, like holding
onto a small peppermint stick or a candy cane.
