I LOVE THIS PEN!! First...
March 12, 2014
I LOVE THIS PEN!! First off, I should note that I'm an adult, not a child. I
love fountain pens. I have a Waterman Expert F, a Lamy Safari EF, A Kaweco
Sport F, and a Pilot Metropolitan M. The Kakuno F nib is the best of the bunch.
The wide grip of the Kakuno is far superior to the narrow, pinched grip of the
Safari. The Safari has a great nib, but it never feels right in my hand. The
Kakuno does. It caps and uncaps with a nice snap, and the nib is always smiling
at you, which is a happy feature. There's good feedback from the nib, better
than the medium nib Metropolitan, which feels smooth but somewhat mushy. The
Kakuno nib makes a nice sound and lays down a sharp line. I'm using the
included cartridge for now and it's a true black. The pen started writing right
away. The Kakuno is seriously a joy to write with. I want another! It's
probably great for kids, but adults, get yourself a cheap and cheerful pen that
makes writing fun.
