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! 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.

An absolutely fun and great pen for the price. Perfect for a first timer to fountain pens or a seasoned writer/artist looking for an expensive daily writer/sketcher. I have been writing and drawing and I am quite pleased with how smooth the nib is. It is what I expected from Pilot based on my past experience with their other pens. The nib is smooth with little to no tooth. Their is no flex to speak of either. If you're looking for line variation, look elsewhere. No problems with skipping or start up to speak of. If you have other Pilots, like the Prera, Penmanship, Plumix, etc, you can swap the nib and/or feeds to get the writing style/size that you want. Kudos to Pilot for the cross compatibility. The only thing that may bug some folks is the lack of a clip. The cap only has a small raised piece of plastic to keep it from rolling away. I personally don't mind since I'll mostly be using it for sketching. This is yet another example from Pilot of a solid writer without the price tag. I have more expensive pens that don't write as smooth as this one does out of the box. Solid construction, feels good in the hand, writes smooth, cheap!

  This pen writes smoothly..., February 12, 2014

This pen writes smoothly and the green cap adds a bit of additional fun. Unfortunately, without a clip on the cap, I lost mine at work on day two out of the box. Knew this was a possibility, in spite of being careful, it slipped out of my pocket. Thus five points for a nice nib, easy cartridge installation, ink flow and aesthetics minus a point for omitting a clip on the cap.
