I'm one of those people...

I'm one of those people who tends to carry a bunch of pens. I'd like to say that it's so that I can always select just the right one for the occasion. Truth is, so many of them fail when I get the cap off that I'm just hedging my bets when I carry several. But I do believe that I could confidently reduce my armamentarium to a single pen by carrying only this one. And whether it's the nib or the ink or some combination of the two, it's the only pen that works each and every time on those shiny cash-register receipts you get in some restaurants, the ones that make you wish you were carrying a Sharpie.

Oh, and if you are looking for a pen that is safe at any angle in a jeans pocket, this is the one. No spontaneous in-pocket openings so far. I have pens costing 100 x as much about which I cannot make that claim.

I really like the semi-opaque...

I really like the semi-opaque white body. It has a slightly softer feel than the original Petit1, which was a hard plastic all over; this one is a bit friendlier to the touch. I ordered one without any ink cartridges, in hopes that my old Petit1 cartridges would work with it, and they do!

Loved the look of this...
November 30, 2011
Loved the look of this pen, so my friends and I bought the last 4! When they came, I was a bit disenchanted because the caps seemed slightly yellower than the bodies. However, I'm now very happy with mine. All the magic happens when you put the ink in.

I stuck in a blue-black cartridge, and it was really cool watching the ink permeate the clear tip and reservoir. With the cap on, it has a pearly, translucent "ghost" or reverse-X-ray appearance, because only the ink and the metal nib are opaque. Really, really cool.

Unlike the old Petit1s, this one has tiny nubs on the barrel that help hold the cap in place, though I've never had an issue with slippage anyway. The font on the barrel is different - improved, in my opinion.

The Petit1 has always been one of my favorite pens, more than worth its small price. The cartridges snap in, which makes refilling them with your own ink pretty safe. These pens are reliable, portable, and cool, and this is my favorite Petit1 so far.

The nib is silky smooth...

The nib is silky smooth but be-ware if you have a leak the cap can get stained in a way where it is impossible to clean!

What a cure little pen!...

What a cure little pen! My pen has an allover hard plastic body and came with no cartridge, like the description stated. I chose to fill it with the Apple Green Petit cartridge and it writes very well. For a fine nib, which I usually don't prefer, this is bold. It's a solid pen that never writes too wet or too dry. it also fits nicely in my hand without the cap on because my hand is small. I would recommend this to inexpensive fountain pen lovers!
