Any reviews of the Pilot Petit1?

That looks to be a Varsity nib. It has the same stamped ring instead of a breather, the same flat top, and the same(from what I can see) feed.

I think that the Varsity and the Petit1 use the same nib, except that most Varsitys come with a M nib while the Petit1's come with a F nib.

 

The nib and feed of a Petit1 can be pulled out just like that of a Varsity, and the two will interchange and both pens will work, even though the inner feed from the Petit1 is extended.

 

So, one option for converting the Petit1 to eye dropper fill is to glue the section and barrel together and fill by pulling out the nib and feed unit, then filling with a syringe (to get through the cartridge spike). I guess that would make it a syringe filler.

Yep! We had a Varsity with a medium nib that we couldn't stand, and swapped it with a nib from a defective Petit1 and now the Varsity is much much better.

We just changed the nib. It worked fine.

It would be a lot easier to just unscrew the back, which is wide enough one could almost pour ink into it from a bottle. Much easier. Use the ever popular silicon grease on the threads.

 

Let's see...couldn't find anyone who did a conversion. I'll have to try it!

So the answers so far are : -

 

Am I stuck using cartridge?

 

Seems the easiest, but can refill so not to bad.

 

Could convert to filler.

 

Am I stuck using pilot cartridge?

 

Yes, and it is not the standard size, but could by the sound of it use the smaller petit one in other pilot pens.

 

If I want an all day user, is the Pilot 78G my best choice?

 

Is their not a petit style pen but full sized?

 

Varsity seems to be very similar.

 

Thanks for all the help and advice so far.
