Verified Purchase
This is my third Pilot Kakuno, and something tells me it won't be my last. These pens are excellent. I have two fine nibs (one red cap, one orange cap) and this medium nib one. All have smooth nibs, and I find myself really liking the way ink flows from this one. I bought a Con20 converter and filled it with Diamine Apple Glory ink, and it's a match made in heaven. I was wondering what the real shade of the cap would be, and it's brighter than the pictures and looks cheery and fresh.
I don't have any cons. If you like the look of this pen, don't hesitate to buy one. I like it better than Lamy Safari. I like the grip better than Pilot Metropolitan (despite having small hands, there's not enough room for my fingers on the Metropolitan, and they bump into the sharp ridge where the cap snaps on) . The Kakuno is nice and light and easy to hold. I like mine so much, they all have names!

Verified Purchase
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.

This is a really nice blue. I normally hate the standard blue offerings of most pen companies, but this is a completely saturated, ultra blue. It almost looks purple at first. It's a really cool pen that I enjoy using. (The one I have is part of the Staedtler Black Box set. ) but I would recommend it as a purchase on its own to get free shipping!

Verified Purchase
Out of the envelope from Jetpens, this pen didn't work. It was the pen I was most excited about, as I love green ink and the black Pilot Multiball I already have. But it took awhile for this pen to start writing, and once it did, every time I paused to think, it wouldn't start up again. I found myself gripping it too tightly, trying to will it to work consistently. I write a lot, and using this pen was stressful. Aside form the ink flow issues, the tip is scratchy in a way my other Multiballs aren't. Perhaps I got a dud. In any case (haha) this pen is banished from my pen case and will not be part of the rotation. It's cheap, but still a waste of money.

I wish I could give it 10 stars. This is the best gel ink. Way better than Pilot G2 and Uni Signo. The color is beautiful. I love that Pentel makes refill colors other than the standard black, blue, and red, and that the refills are so cheap. If you like gel ink but haven't tried Pentel, I promise you'll love it.

Verified Purchase
I bought this pen for the body, and a .7mm refill to put in it. I love that it takes all Pentel Energel refills! So many refill colors are just black, blue, and red. So good job, Pentel! This pen body is really impressive. The grip is nice and rubbery. The best part about it, though, is that the cap clicks onto the end when it's posted. My expensive Waterman pen does that too, but it's a really nice bonus for a cheap pen.

This pen is so pretty!...
Verified Purchase
This pen is so pretty! The outside barrel is round, but it's faceted on the inside, which gives it the insides a magnified, kaleidoscopic look. It's even cooler when you take the ink out and peer in and see a mini kaleidoscope world in there. For a cheap pen, there's a lot of amusement! The ink, though, is nothing to write home about. It's faster than a ballpoint, but could be blacker. The rubberized grip is nice, and tapers smoothly to the tip, which makes it a comfortable pen for people who grip their pens low.
SO, 5 stars for the gorgeous pen body, and 3 for the ink. Totally a good buy for looks alone.

Verified Purchase
This is my fourth pencil case from JetPens and the first one I love!
Why do i love it so much? Well, it's both a pencil case and a pencil cup. I love opening it, standing it up, and peeling the sides down. It's like opening a present full of pens every day! Plus it's super portable. I can grab it from my desk and throw it in my backpack without going through the agonizing choice of what pens bring with me every day. I can bring all of them! I have 15 pens and pencils in there now, which is about the max.
Color is quite true to the photos. The lining is a bright cheery green. The exterior is closer to dark gray than dark green. Very attractive.
To sum up, it's attractive, holds a lot!, stands up, and is very portable. If you're thinking of buying one, I recommend it highly.

This pen cracked. I love Sliccies ink and the way it writes, but my pen cracked and now it unscrews itself. I am not hard on my things at all! It's also a bit uncomfortable to grip, being both hard and ridgy.

Verified Purchase
Much nice green than the photos suggest (though the photos are excellent). The green is nice and saturated, sort of fresh and leafy looking. I ordered it in the hopes that it would expand enough to fit my Nook Simple Touch, and the fit is perfect. As a bonus, the lining and outside pockets act as padding. I'm sure you can find a million uses for this product. There are many organizational options. I'm really happy with it.
