This colorful array of Pilot's Petit mini pens offers you versatility, portability, and most importantly, fun! The affordable collection includes 8 colors and 3 pen types, for a total of 24 pens to choose from. It's a challenge to decide which ones you want! Colors range from baby pink to black, and the pen types are:
Petit1 - fountain pen
Petit2 - sign pen (felt-tip marker)
Petit3 - brush pen

Each pen comes with an ink cartridge that is very easy to install. Refills are available and are compatible across all three pen types. The ink is water-based and smudge-free.

The pen design is attractive and light, featuring a transparent body tinted to match the ink color. To add a fun twist, you could combine bodies and inks of different colors. The pen is compact and great for carrying, just 4.2 inches (10.7 cm) long when capped. When the cap is posted on the end, the pen ranges from 4.9 to 5.2 inches (12.5 to 13.1 cm) in length depending on the pen type, a comfortable size for writing. When posting, the cap snaps on securely, preventing any danger of breaking it by pushing too far onto the pen.

Petit1 is a series of fine-nib fountain pens. The ink feed under the nib is unique in that it is see-through, so the ink color is visible, a nice visual touch.

Dimensions: 4.0 inches (10.2 cm) long when capped, 5.2 inches (13.1 cm) long when cap is posted on end, 0.5 inches (1.3 cm) in diameter.

  Unbelievable for $4!..., January 24, 2013

Unbelievable for $4! Small, but thick enough to be comfortable for smaller hands like mine. The back end of the barrel has small bumps that help the cap to click firmly when you post it, so the cap sits very solidly to make the pen feel longer and solid when you're writing.

I can't say anything about the ink because I threw the cartridge in the drawer immediately. I slopped a bunch of silicone grease on the threads between the section and barrel and filled the whole barrel with ink, which has 2 oz capacity. That'll write for quite a while with the wet fine nib in the pen.

Given the price, I wasn't expecting much, but this pen is really nice to write with. The ink is a good colour that dries quickly, I've had no skipping or poor starting from the pen, and it's a good width for my hand. The nib writes smoothly and is not scratchy at all. Very pleased!

I wasn't expecting much for under $4 but I was pleasantly surprised. Right from the start when I put the cartridge in I was excited to watch the ink get sucked right up into the nib. Then to find that actually writing with it was very comfortable and smooth. This really is the little pen that could and I would highly recommend it to folks who are trying to entice family and friends into the world of fountain pens. :)

Lefty safe!

admittedly my first fountain pen ever so i have nothing to compare it to but even so, if it writes smoothly and has fast-drying ink doesn't leave me with streaky hands, it's already got three stars in my opinion. Additionally, it's rather comfortable to hold, doesn't catch if you're using the right paper, and the apple green ink in particular is some of the best green ink i've used. a common problem with green ink is that it's too bright to even be useful as a writing pen, but the apple green that comes with the pen is dark enough to be seen easily and bright enough to be eye catching. I'm very pleased with my purchase and at $4 a pen, I can see myself buying many more, should I need to.

I was a bit disappointed with these pens; I had bought colored pens for the first time a few years ago, opting to purchase Staedtler's colorful ballpoint pen set on Amazon. I never use the green or the orange in that set because they're so light that it makes them hard to read from a distance. These Pilot pens are much more legible from a distance (2 ft away) but they aren't as saturated as I would have expected--although more saturated than the coordinating Staedtler colors. I suspect that this is a problem inherent to the color, not to the pen or ink. However, the colors on the Jetpens example are deeper than the actual output. The pink that I bought matches the example, but the green and the orange are not an exact match--looks like the contrast was bumped up or something.

I will not be refilling these colors once they run out. Possibly the other colors perform well, but the orange and the green aren't dark enough to make useful pens. The pen itself, though, is really nice quality pen for how cheap it is! I expect that I'll probably just refill it with different colors in the series in the future.
