I received an adorable pen from Jet Pens!
The Pilot Hi-Tec-C reminds me of why I loved fine point pens for so many years. This particular pen is from the Hello Kitty Limited Edition set of pens. I ended up buying the whole set in the 0.4 mm point. The figurines are removable so can be placed on other Hi-Tec-C pens when the current pens run out.
I haven’t used many fine point pens very much these days mostly because my cursive has deteriorated due to working so much on the computer. I print a lot, but don’t really like my printing in fine point. In general, 0.5 mm and higher is my preference when I print. However, this particular pen glides very smoothly on both papers I sampled without a lot of drag or scratching, and encourages me to write more on paper just to enjoy how pleasing it feels.
This particular pen is the 0.3 mm point in aqua blue. I love pens, and I especially love pens that aren’t the standard blue, black, and red. This pen will definitely make its way into my regular rotation when I’m at work or editing for Sequential Tart
Sylvan, my rat, looks on while I take pictures of the pen and the writing samples.
