About the Pilot Kakuno

The Pilot Kakuno fountain pen, perfect for beginners and experienced writers, is a delightful fun pen. "Kaküno" means "to write" in Japanese and that is just what this fountain pen has been designed for. Fitted with a stainless steel nib that features a smiley face so when it is facing upward the nib is in the perfect orientation for writing.

Available in an assortment of colors including the all clear cap and barrel, the Pilot Kakuno fountain pen is hexagonal, similar to the classic wooden pencil. The Kakuno has a plastic resin cap and barrel and the pen has been made from 85% recycled content. The pen accepts a Pilot ink cartridge and one is included to get you started.

This is my second Kakuno; It's a quality inexpensive pen. You get a moderate amount of feedback with the F nib. The smileys on the nib make it fun. :) I like the variety of colors that are available.
My only complaint about Pilot's entry level pens in general is that they use proprietary cartridges and converters and the converters are lousy.

The fine point is too broad to use on check stubs but great for general writing. I bought an extra fine pen for the check book writing and it is just right. The writing feel of an ink pen is just great, smooth and effortless.

Perfect pen for my little niece. She’s 7 years old and is always heavily admiring my fountain pens. It always broke my heart a bit to tell her she couldn’t really touch them much less write with them. I heard about these on a Youtube vid, picked one up for her. Got her the pink one (her fav color). She loves to use it and likes to pick inks and find an excuse to work on her writing. I love that I can give it to her and not have to worry. If she somehow manages to break it, it’s cheap enough that I’ll just get her another. Seal of approval.

I ordered the Kakuno in extra fine nib with clear body. It's advertised in its packaging as the best beginner fountain pen and I am somewhat inclined to believe based on the comfort when holding it and how there's little feedback when writing despite being an extra fine nib. It's a friction fit nib and feed so unlike a Platinum Preppy, a full cleaning is possible if need be. I probably would have skipped the other so called beginner pens I purchased had I got one of these.

It was my first dip to fountain pen and it checks all the boxes I wanted without breaking the bank. Demonstrator body check, extra fine nib size check, and lastly affordable price check. I've been a fan of Pilot and this one didn't disappoint. Writes fine smooth lines.

A great choice for first time user. Oh I drop it twice and the body seems to hold pretty well. Also it was easy to disassemble and clean coming from someone with no experience. Highly recommended.

Comes with a black cartridge and a very easy to follow manual. Cute package overall. I already get compliments using it. Makes me want to buy another one as a back up. It's that good.

The Kakuno is a great starter pen or a quality writer for working on-the-go (meaning if it vanishes suddenly, you can replace it for a reasonable price.). My medium nib is smooth-writing, and the grip resembles the Lamy Safari. Mine seems to favor Quink over more dense inks.

I bought the Kakuno for my granddaughter and she really likes it, and I don't have to worry about her accidentally messing up the pen. And, thanks to Pen Chalet for the price and fast shipping.
