The Pilot Petit1 has the honour of being only the second fountain pen ever reviewed at A Penchant for Paper. (The first was the Platinum Preppy.) I must admit that I am still somewhat intimidated by fountain pens. Luckily, the Petit1 is about as unintimidating as a pen can get.

The nib of the Pilot Petit1 is marked with an "F", which presumably stands for "fine", although after writing with this pen I am beginning to suspect that it actually stands for something like "fat" or "full." The nib is certainly not as fine as that of the Platinum Preppy, an otherwise similar sort of cheap, "disposable" fountain pen. The Petit1 is also a much wetter pen than the Preppy, and tends to feather on most papers, even slightly on the paper of my Rhodia No. 11 Pad.

|Green ink! I love it!|
