Pilot Petit 1 Mini Fountain Pen
I picked up one of these tiny beauties on my latest order from Jet Pens. It was less than $4, so I decided to give it a try. It has a clear, injection molded body and a nib that is very similar if not identical to the one on the Pilot Varsity.
It posts easily and has a plastic clip that seems usable even if a bit fragile. The Petit 1 is comfortable to hold when posted (and I have very large hands).
It came with a black cartridge and a pack of 3 replacement cartridges will set you back less than $2 (other colors are also available).
How does it write? Very smooth with a fine line and just a touch of feedback. Pretty amazing for such a tiny and inexpensive pen! It is a decent little pocket or purse pen that won't put a dent in your wallet.
