I got this pen in a RAK last week and I fell totally and utterly in love, in a way I very seldom do. Why? Well it is so cool that you can see the ink through the barrel, it is nice and small and light, pleasant to hold, it makes my writing look nice (and I am a leftie) and the apple green ink is such a nice colour.
I found them on the internet but they seem to be getting harder to find – they do have both the pens and the refill cartridges on 3 for 2 special at Cult Pens at the moment. The photographs below come from Jet Pens but they are out of stock.
The colorful array of Pilot’s Petit mini pens offers you versatility, portability, and most importantly, fun! The affordable collection includes 8 colours (Apple Green, Apricot Orange, Baby Pink, Black, Blue, Blue Black, Clear Blue, and Red) 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:
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.
Petit1 is a series of fine-nib fountain pens. The ink feed under the nib is unique in that it is see-through, so the ink color is visible, a nice visual touch.
