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

This is a fine pen to write with. Unlike the Metropolitan, there's no skipping. The line is thinner than that of a Metropolitan with a medium nib. The only thing I would is more weight. This pen feels too light and, I dare say, cheap in my hand. Nonetheless, it writes so well, I use it constantly.

A nice little pen for a great price! Mine writes on the dry side, doesn't like Namiki cartridges, had problems with a little skipping and starting a line, but it wasn't the fault of the pen, it was the fault of the ink. I put in a converter and am using J. Herbin Rose Cyclamen in it, and pen and ink seem very happy together and it writes beautifully now. I'm happy with this product.
