I'm a big fan of the Pilot Petit 1s so I had to get a few of the reisue. This
latest version retains the good looks and smooth, reliable writing of the
original Petits, but improves it with a clear collector section, making this a
true demonstrator pen. The new version of this pen has a slightly longer barrel
(approx 0.25 inches) which may make it more comfortable for people with larger
hands (personally, I find it comfortable to write with both the older and newer
This is a fantastic entry level pen, a great little gift item, and a pen that is
so affordable that you can splurge and buy one of each color! I have nothing
but good things to say about this pen!!!!

In the world of overpriced products and stuffy ideas about fountain pens, there
has just arrived a very fair value from Pilot in their new eyedropper mini. For
$3.80 ea., it is a home run! I have used Lamy Safari's and Kaweco Ice pens for
a number of years with no other coming close to their function, value or
reliability. This new mini has good flow, writes well in F and construction in
better than you would think for the stciker price.
I traditionally have given pens away as gifts to help friends and family become
involved in writing with a fountain pen. Now, it won't be as painful when it
leaves my desk for another or I lose one while traveling.
Hats off to Pilot for a wonderful breakthrough in writing pleasure!

This pen was my first fountain pen. Needless to say, they got me hooked. The ink
flows very smoothly and almost never gets clogged, even if you stop using for a
week or two. The pen is kinda small and fat, but with the cap on at the end,
it's perfectly fine.
I love this pen because of its inexpensive price, so I might plan on going on a
spree for these, and it's a great gift for sure! It's just too cute, and the
black blue color is amazing! The nib isn't too flexible, but I don't find it a
I also like that this is a demonstration pen because of its subtly clear body.
Too bad the ink runs out quickly. I love the entire Petit series!

For the price, it’s a pretty decent fountain pen. It writes well with a little
bit of threading, but naturally you’re not going to get the same experience as
if you were using a $100 pen. Heck, nibs for those pens cost much more than this
I have very tiny handwriting, so for this pen I flipped the nib over so that the
top of it faces downward; it writes much better for me that way. It’s not that
much thinner, but enough for me to notice.
The ink color is great, and is more black/gray with a hint of blue.
The pen feels very sturdy in the hand despite its price point, and is fine for a
disposable item. I love the size with the cap on, as I prefer smaller pens.
Obviously it’s no contender against non-disposable (or “regular”) fountain
pens, but it holds its own, and it holds it well.

I bought this pen for laughs, just wanted to see what you get for the price.
Imagine my surprise when I found out that this little thing is a quite capable
and useful fountain pen. I have left it untouched for two weeks and when I used
again, wrote on first try, not even a hint of drying out (wish I could say that
about my Parker).
Value for money: 5 stars

Portability: 5 stars
Same goes for the Petit Sign Pen.
