DescriptionSpecifications
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.

Note: Please remove the protective yellow tab from the ink cartridge before use.

Petit3 is a series of fude brush pens ("fude" means "brush"). Use them to write characters and draw illustrations with eye-catching line width variation and a unique flair. The pens have a hard brush and are simple to use even for brush pen novices.

This little guy is surprisingl...

This little guy is surprisingly wonderful! Depending on how light or heavy your touch is, the line put down ranges from fairly fine to very broad! If only this were an actual brush tip... And if the entire tip were usable, rather than the lighter portion depicted beyond the white bit being plastic. Still, the felt tip works nicely and it's refillable. The tip itself seems quite resilient, though more time is needed to see just how long it lasts. Plus, it's hard to beat that price!

The ink is a transparent black, and of course is slightly water-resistant when dry. You can get some interesting effects using a wet brush after doing your sketch, such as doing some light shading. You can even dip the pen directly into water and use it like a watercolor brush, to an extent, or get some interesting effects drawing onto paper that's been pre-wetted. And you can always convert this pen into an eyedropper and use whatever ink with whatever water-resistance level you choose, which is what I plan to do.

The compact size allows it to fit in many travel-kits for painting and sketching, but when posted has a comfortable length to work with. I do so love these little pens, as well as the fountain pen version!

This fude pen is now a permanent part of my sketch kit, more due to its compact size than any other quality. I have other brush pens of course, with actual bristles instead of the felt, but this is a nice little workhorse. (Seriously, though.. Pilot should really make bristled versions of the Petit, and it would be sublime.)

The lines you can achieve range from fine to fairly broad, and once the ink has completely saturated the nib, it's quite flexible. Something about the ink it comes with takes forever to saturate the nib, however. I intend to turn this into an eyedropper, as my apple green version works stunningly wonderful as such, but I thought I'd give the cartridge a try. Nope.. Never again. It takes several days for it to saturate the nib, and the ink color itself isn't all that impressive. Just convert this one and fill it with your own ink!

I really love these pens, and the fountain pen version. They're compact when capped, but comfortably lengthed when the cap is posted, they come in fun colors, and you can mod and fill them with coordinating inks or whatever ink you want!

This little Titan of a pen surprised me! The range on it is pretty remarkable starting at a really thin line to a medium-broad. Very nice! Refilling it seems easy enough and allows for a longer use than just once,....so long as the tip holds out. I really like it and will keep it for travel.

For the price, this is a terrific little refillable brush pen! I keep one in each of my sketch kits--they are good for expressive lines from broad to very fine, and are compact enough to take anywhere. Like all the Pilot Petit pens I've tried, they are very reliable. And, a big plus is that they are refillable--I can put whatever fountain pen ink I want in the cartridge, and because the pen body is transparent, you can see how much ink you have left. For people worried about the small size (which I like), the pen cap posts, which makes the pen standard length. I think these are a terrific addition to any artist's kit (and they're fun, too!).

I didn't think it was going to be so small, but it's adequate. Nice pen, but nothing out of this world.
