Congratulations to random winner #9! Connie who commented:

You have won one bottle of Lamy T52 Fountain Pen Ink + Ink Blotter Tape - 50 ml Bottle - Blue. Please comment here by next week June 24th, 2011, and then email with your mailing address to claim your prize.

For everyone else, stay tuned, we'll have another giveaway next week!

This post contains an outdated version of the Pilot Petit Pen System. For the newest version, see this post!

Pilot has recently redone their Petit pen line!

The whole system has been revamped. The line is now a customizable system consisting of separate pen bodies and ink cartridges. They are available in three different nib types: a fountain pen (Petit1), marker pen (Petit2) and brush pen (Petit3). Choose a pen body type and then choose your favorite ink cartridge color to customize your Petit pen (sold separately).

The ink cartridges are compatible across all three body styles. Select your nib and body style and ink color to create your favorite pen combination!

The Petit1 pen bodies have the same fountain pen nibs as the original line and is available in four different body colors.

The new Petit2 pens have a felt tip or "sign pen" nib. The body styles for these pens are slightly different than their Petit1 fountain pen counterparts, as only the barrel and clip are colored.

The new Petit3 pens have a calligraphy type brush tip. Like the Petit1 and Petit2, the body colors are transparent. The clip on these pens however, is a solid color.

The ink cartridges can be used with any of the Petit pen models, allowing you to fully customize your Petit pen.

What do you think will be your favorite Petit combination?

This latest release of new products is BIG! Among the dozens of new items at JetPens are the bottled LAMY T52 Fountain Pen Inks.

The LAMY T52 ink is a beautiful pigment ink line that is safe for fountain pen use. It has a basin inside the bottle, which is meant to assist with filling when the ink level is low. It also comes with a roll of blotter tape that can be used to clean the pen after filling, or to blot writing!

LAMY is known for their excellent quality standards, and this ink certainly upholds that reputation!
