I have a slight obsession with pens. I’m old school when it comes to such things and nothing replaces the feel of a nice pen on a clean sheet of paper for brainstorming or writing. In my opinion, the G-Tec-C4 from Pilot is one of the best on the planet.
The pen isn’t fancy and doesn’t look all that cool. When I first got them in the mail, I thought they were going to be terrible, but then I started writing with them it was like magic. Though the pen is a ball point gel, I have never had any trouble with smearing that usually accompanies such gel pens. The pen glides with each stroke of the letter and feels very much like using a fine pencil. The ink is smooth and consistent as well, and I have been using this pen for about three weeks without streaking or fail.
The cap snaps on tightly with a satisfying click and holds firmly in place on the bottom of the pen when in use. It even includes a dandy little sticker to remind you to tightly replace the cap. I ordered a 5-pack with a variety of colors, (included are black, blue, green, purple, and red) that I use for a variety of projects and marking in my Bible.
The only downside is the plastic outside. It does feel at least a bit cheap and could stand some aesthetic updates, but that certainly doesn’t take away anything significant from the overall effect. They are also a touch on the expensive side, but I think they are worth it.
I can’t remember the last time I actively sought to not lose a set of pens. In fact, I still keep them in their original packaging. I highly recommend them to all my ministry friends.
You can purchase these pens from Amazon.
