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

A terrific pen! It writes flawlessly, smooth and fluid, with a very comfortable fine point nib. The ink flow is perfect, the grip comfortable. I much prefer it over the Metropolitan.

Great pen, comfortable...

Great pen, comfortable grip, no gripes here. Cap firmly clicks onto pen with a satisfying/comforting sound. I really love gray pens and the smiles on the logo/nib make me feel a little less gloomy in general. This pen throws up a nice thin line and is very consistent. It feels good and I like to touch it because it's slightly slippery.

This is an amazing writing and drawing pen, although it does feather a lot on layered watercolor paint. However the color is near black but still has a very nice grayish-black finish after it dries.

Love the Kakuno for sketching! I have both fine and medium nibs and I really like them. Comfy, refillable and they withstand a bit of copic marker too.
