I have this and the dark green version of this. I'm very happy with how this one writes and the colour of the ink. However, cobalt blue's tip is slightly larger than my dark green one...

This pen was a wonderful surprise! The price is great, and it writes beautifully. I was looking for an inexpensive fountain pen that I wouldn't mind losing in a meeting, so I tried this and the Platinum Preppy. This one wins hands-down because the nib is much more flexible. I also love the tiny size - perfect to fit in a pocket. The cobalt blue is very bright at first, but dries a bit darker. It is slightly more turquoise than I expected, but that's a good thing. I'll probably be getting more in a few different colors.

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.
