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

Very comfortable grip (better than my Lamy Safari), good ink flow, soft nib. Because of lack of pen clip, I purchased a Kaweco Sport Pen Clip (Nickel) and fit perfect. Still testing the FP with Noodler's Baystate Blue, but some small filtration detected in the nib (base support) after three weeks of use, I can't confirm if this leak is result of this ink, more testing with other inks needed.In case of doubt, buy it, is a good fountain pen you can find for the price.Works out of the box.

The smiley face on the nib makes me happy, and for a $15 fountain pen it's not bad. But I don't think I'll be using it much because it's not comfortable to write for long periods of time.

Exceptional value. Very, very smooth nib for the price, Wish they would throw a clip on it though, even if it was just molded plastic.
