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 Soft Blue pen. Photos of a pen without its packaging feature the Medium Nib Light Green pen.

This was the perfect pen for a beginner like me. The body was a little wider than I expected, but it fits comfortably and doesn't cause cramps. It's very light, which makes long writing much more enjoyable. The pastel blue is as depicted in the photo and overall the design is very clean and nice to look at.

Love this pen! I'm a new fountain pen user and it's been a no-brainer to use. The winky face is adorable! Haven't tried other inks with it yet, but the pilot black ink cartridge that came with it seems to work well even on relatively cheap paper.

This is my first fountain pen, and it's great! It wasn't hard to go from my usual needlepoint pens to this. I'm left-handed, but it isn't a problem at all; it is easy to hold this pen correctly and write with it. It's lightweight, but still feels sturdy. The pastel blue color looks even better in person, and the nib is adorable! I'd definitely recommend this pen to anyone from a fountain pen beginner to a more experienced FP user. For the price, it can't be beat.
