I just received this cutie in the mail, and I love it. It writes really well, I
love the color of the ink. Glad I bought some refills. I'd definitely order
these again, and I think next order I'll try another color!

Great for travel and journaling. I take this little pen around with me
everywhere. It is a small thing, but its still easy to grasp. And the blue black
is just a wonderful color. I have nothing but good things to say about this pen.
For the price, its just amazing.

Does this pen fit the CON-20 converter? I like the pen a lot, but I'd rather use
a different ink.

I love the look of this little gem. Visually, it's a very attractive pen, and it
writes quite smoothly. I also liked the wide range of ink (and pen) colors
available, making it just about the perfect low-cost refillable fountain pen.
The problem is that the ink feathers very badly on plain paper. I tried it on
watercolor paper, and it does better, but I expect I'll refill the cartridges
with a different ink (I really like the blue-black color, though).

I bought just one piece to try out.
The nib is pelleted at the tip and the writing experience is smooth. Nib is
sensitive to provide good ink flow.
My pen comes with a fine point and I noticed that it is wider than the fine
point of my Lamy AL-Star fountain pen. I expect Japanese nibs to be one size
smaller than European nibs, but this Pilot Petit1 nib proves otherwise.
The original Pilot ink that comes with the pen is smooth flowing but exhibits
feathering and a high tendency to bleed through writing paper.
The Pilot ink disappoints me. Any ink that needs good quality paper to perform
only presents itself as a restriction to me as I cannot always dictate the
quality of paper accessible to me.
I bought six additional cartridges (thus seven cartridges in total) and flushed
all those ink away. Instead, I bought a bottle of Platinum ink and an injection
syringe to fill those emptied cartridges with better performing Platinum ink.
