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...
, June 20, 2013
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. :)

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...

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.
I really really enjoy...

I really really enjoy this quick, and cute fountain pen. The ink life is fairly
decent, I use it as often as I can and still have not had to change the
cartridge once. The color is nice, the design is nice. You can quite frankly see
how small the pen is in the picture compared to a penny...yes...it's SMALL. BUT
that's one of its redeeming features, I promise! Worth the cheap price.
Bought four of these...

Bought four of these Petit line pens, just to try out. They are VERY SMALL, most
like a novelty item, I gave them away as gifts. The ink and colors are very nice
