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 Yellow pen. Photos of a pen without its packaging feature the Fine Nib Soft Blue pen.

I really really like...

I really really like the fine nib on this pen. Also, it writes very smooth. I just got it today, but I haven't had any dry spots. I also have a Kaweco sport pen with medium nib, but I like the Pilot Kakuno better. Usually I like bold pens, but the fine nib on this one gives a very elegant and expressive line. It's also cheaper than other pens, good deal!

This is the first fountain...

This is the first fountain pen I have ever bought/used and I love it so much! The nib yielded lines as thin as my usual fave 0.4 mm gel pens but the writing was much smoother! The packaging is also super cute (box and pen body itself). Only thing that some people may not like is that the included Pilot black ink sometimes isn't really jet black but more of a dark grey (as if the black were "watery"). I am totally fine with this myself, however, as it creates an effect similar to painting with india ink and writing/drawings looks like they have more personality. Just my opinion :)
Will be buying more soon!
Very confortable to use...

Very confortable to use and bright colours. It looks childish, but the quality is worth. I work in a very serious environment; for me it's a kind of happy rebellion to show it. However, the tip is very fine and it has good quality; don't let the fun colours let you think that this is not a top quality pen. I give it four stars because it has two tiny holes that make it impossible to convert to an eye dropper.
