DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
Your first encounter with a fountain pen is important. That's why Pilot designed the Kakuno pen, a simple fountain pen that is great for beginners. Thanks to its many features that help ease beginners into the world of fountain pens, kids and adults can experience the joy of writing with these delightful instruments. "Kakuno" means "to write" in Japanese, and that's just what this pen helps you do!

Features include the cute smiley face on the nib that always faces up when writing, ensuring correct nib orientation. The "Soft" color pens have a winking smiley face, while the other colors have a regular smiley face. Indentations in the cap make it easy to grasp when uncapping the pen. The cap and body are hexagonal, similar to the classic wooden pencil, so that the pen is comfortable to hold and doesn't roll away. The grip is made in a triangular shape so that fingers naturally sit in the correct position. Novices will soon be on their way to becoming seasoned fountain pen users!

One black ink cartridge is included. This pen is compatible with Pilot ink cartridges and converters, as listed under Recommended Refills/Parts.

This is the Fine Nib Orange pen. Photos of a pen without its packaging feature the Medium Nib Light Green pen.

I got this pen for my daughter, and wish I had gotten one for myself. The steel nib is smooth with a generous ink flow and writes a true fine line. The grip is ergonomically suited for learning to write, but not as bulky or outsized as the Lamy ABC or Pelikano Jr.

I bought this one and the Pelikan Twist Fountain pen simultaneously as I could not make up my mind between the two. I have several workhorse fountain pens (Pelikans, Pilots including a Namiki retractable fountain pen, Sailors, etc) so I am not a novice. I like this Pilot's fine nib. Very smooth and an even flow. Posts nicely and securely. Because the cap posts securely and it comes in a fine nib, I give this pen one more star. Beautiful, fun Pilot.
So smooth and luscious!...

So smooth and luscious! I can only liken using it to riding a thoroughbred black stallion through a silent, moonlit night time city.
