Pilot Hi Tec C

Ya’ll know why I bought these pens. They have Hello Kitty caps! I got these from Jetpens when they were on sale.

I generally don’t suggest Pilot pens because none of them are waterproof. The Pilot Hi-Tec C surprised me a bit in this respect because some of the colors didn’t all wash away. They all bleed a little bit, but as you can see, you can still read a few of the colors. Now I put this under the faucet, so this is more faded than if you’d spilled some water over it. You could most likely save some of the lighter colors by dabbing away the water.

This pen writes well, doesn’t skip, colors are vibrant and comes in various nibs. This particular one is a .3mm. I prefer the .4mm-.5mm nibs. I find that .3 is too thin and too light. This line of pens has a bajillion different colors so you’re bound to find a color that you like. They would be perfect if they were waterproof, but alas. I’ve dropped too many notebooks in water and spilled too many drinks. I am, quite sadly, a clumsy sort.

Until tomorrow!
