Mini Review: Pilot Petit1 Mini Fountain Pen in 6 Colors

26 12 2010

These pens are so much more cooperative on Rhodia paper. By the way, if this brown looks a little purple, then I've probably done a bad job of getting this picture color balanced correctly. Hooray for non-true-to-life monitors.

For the gift-giving holidays, my parents got me five new Pilot Petit1 mini fountain pens with refills. Of course, the only gift-guide I gave them this year was a bookmark to my JetPens wishlist on their main bookmarks toolbar.

No need to review the Pilot Petit1 pen all over again, but having an additional color reference is worthwhile.

These pens are both delightful and adorable.

The colors on the caps are pretty close to the colors of the ink, again, a nice feature. The pinks (Wine Red and Cherry Pink) could be a little darker, but they’re still, overall, pleasing colors. The Mandarin Orange is almost the exact same color as the cover of this minuscule Rhodia notebook I’ve got. The Apple Green is pretty close to the color of the light green M&M in the holiday M&Ms? I don’t have anything handy to compare the Blue-black or the Brown to. Alas.

I just realized that 4 of these colors are delightful food-themed. That makes me happy.
