The 3952 Makatao Fountain Pen is available in five lively colors: Blue, Purple, Red, White, and Yellow. Also, each pen is unique in it’s pattern and no two are exactly alike. We used the Blue Makatao in this review, which has blue and green swirls across the body. In addition, each color comes with a chrome colored clip and trim. The Makatao comes with a two-toned steel #6 nib, which is definitely another plus. With some great eye-catching colors, you’re sure to find one you like.


As mentioned, the Makatao comes with a two-toned steel #6 nib, which allows for easy nib swapping, if you are so inclined. However, the Makatao comes stock with a well-tuned German nib already. It accepts standard international converters or cartridges, and also comes with a converter already mounted. Also, the Makatao would support an eye-dropper conversion as long as you properly use silicon grease or an o-ring. Length-wise, the pen measures to be 5.6 in., and 7.25 in. posted.


The 3952 Makatao Fountain Pen looks great, feels great, but does it write well? Indeed it does! For the purpose of this review we used a Blue Makatao Fountain Pen with a Fine nib. Also, we used the Krishna Vaikhari Ink that we reviewed on earlier this week. During the writing sample, the Makatao wrote beautifully. The grip section was comfortable to hold, and the pen overall was on the light side. While posted, the pen was a little back heavy, but your experience may vary. All in all, a great writing pen.


In conclusion, the 3952 Makatao Fountain Pen is another smash hit from the 3952 pen company. With it’s vibrant colors, great feel, and it’s overall great quality, you’ll to pick one up today. Maybe even two of them. Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog to stay up-to-date on all of our reviews, giveaways, and announcements!

    My favorite in is Sailor’s Rikyu-cha. It’s not a new comer to the ink game, but I sure do like the unique colors it displays.

    The blue or purple one looks great, Not sure what you guys should review next, not too good with pens

  9. Stephen Trimble

    That is one sweet pen. Keep on reviewing those Krishna inks—how about Writer’s Night or Sailor Blue?

    Some of my very favorite inks are Waterman inks. They are less expensive than many, yet most are reliable and work great in every pen. Another ink brand that I really like are the L’Artisan Pastelier Callifolio line of inks. Perhaps you could a review of some of the blue sea inks – Bleu Mediterranee, Bleu Atlantique, Bleu Pacifique, Bleu Azur, etc. Baikal is another dark blue that is mysterious and lovely.
