Pilot Hi-Tecpoint V5 Grip Rollerball

Pilot V10 Grip

The Pilot Hi-Tecpoint V5 Grip is a needle-tip rollerball pen. The V5 is the 0.5 mm ultra fine size of this pen.

This pen is sold as the Hi-Tecpoint V5 Grip, model LHGN-20V5, in Japan. It has a retail price of 200 JPY and is sold in black, red, green and blue colors. While typically considered to be a Japanese pen, it is available in a few other markets, like Singapore.

The Hi-Tecpoint series uses a water-based ink and is only sold in a needle point tip. This marks a difference from the common (in the US) Precise series which uses a standard, conical writing tip.

This pen’s non-grip equivalent is the Hi-Tecpoint V5, which is a cartridge-refillable rollerball, and also a needle-tip. The American variant of this pen is the Pilot Precise V5 retractable and the Precise V5 capped rollerball.

Unlike some other pens this line (like some of the non-grip Hi-Tecpoint) these pens are not refillable.
