I converted this pen to an eyedropper by applying Plumber's Silicone Grease (purchased at the local Lowe's) liberally to the threads. I filled the barrel with Noodler's Kiowa Pecan (by simply putting a soda straw into the ink bottle and putting my finger over the other end of the straw to keep the ink in the straw till I had it over the barrel), closed the pen, then wiped off the excess grease. It worked perfect right away and has worked flawlessly ever since (i.e., for about 5 days now). I've carried this pen in my pants pocket without concern it would leak, and it has not leaked a drop. I have oversized hands but I find the Pilot Petit1 comfortable posted. It posts nicely because there are four nubs on the end of the barrel that the cap can grab onto. Not a bad nib at all given the cost of the pen. I'm a left-handed overwriter so I push fountain pen nibs as much as I pull them when drawing and writing, and I find that the nib on this pen glides just fine either way. It's not smooth like 14k nibs I've used but it's not scratchy in a way that presents any problems - and for drawing I sometimes use it on paper that has a fair amount of tooth. I plan to purchase more of these, turn them into eyedroppers and give them as gifts.

I just received this pen and tried it out immediately. I put the cartridge in place and loved watching the ink flow through the feed to the nib, that was something one doesn't see too often with a fountain pen. The color is just beautiful. Turquoise is my favorite color. I felt that the nib was more medium than fine. Wen I compared it to a Pilot Varsity, it wrote only slightly finer. If you are particular about scratchiness, this is not silent but not loud either. I have small hands with long fingers, and I felt that this was a comfortable length with the lid posted. I would love to buy the rest of the colors.!

Surprisingly good writer. I threw this in with my last JP order to try it out and I'm pleasantly surprised. The colour is nice and bright and has caught the eye of several of my colleagues. Bursting the cart and watching the feed soak up the ink was, frankly, awesome! Slightly scratchy on initial use but I'm hoping it works itself out.

I really love this little pen. Despite its tiny size and miniscule price it's definitely one of the best writing utensils I own. I typically write with a 0.5 kurutoga; this writes thicker than that but thinner than an an 0.5 pencil. If you're used to heavy pens I may not suggest this pen, it is plastic. My only complaint is that the weight is somewhat awkward when the pen is capped. I am easily able to write with it uncapped but that may not be so for others.

This is a pretty amazing little pen for the price. Love the clear and blue barrel and cap. Everyone that sees it thinks it is very cool. The nib is a tad scratchy, but again, the price. I am crazy about the blue ink that comes with this pen, it relaxes me. The nicely rounded contours make this an easy pen to carry in your pocket. Add one of these to your next JetPens order and enjoy.

The pen writes smoothly and consistently and this is one of my favorite ink colors. My only gripe is that I can't write with it for long periods, because my hand will cramp due to the size, but it is a MINI pen, so that was expected.

I'm new to fountain pens and this was the first one I used. It was awesome right out of the package. I have small hands and it's comfortable with or without the cap on the back end. The only time I had to wait for ink was when I first installed the ink cartridge. My only sad thing about this pen is that there isn't a converter small enough for this pen. I will most likely try refilling the cartidge first. If that doesn't work I'll convert it to an eye dropper. I'm kind of obsessed with all the ink color options. I also got the green version, but I haven't had the same awesome experience with it. It's very scratchy when you write and has some ink flow problems. With the blue one it writes smooth and ink flow is perfect. This little pen is super comfortable in my small hands. :) I think I'll be buying more colors because, why not? Thanks Jetpens for having an awesome selection and great prices!

My sweetheart hacked these right away. The blue one is now a massive capacity eyedropper pen. I find them scratchy, but not him.
