About Grey Lime 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.

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.

It’s a smooth writing fountain pen that makes it easy to see how much ink you have left. The fine point is the perfect size and the nib lays down the right amount of ink. It’s durable for it’s size and material used. For it’s price it is well worth it.

Got this as a first fountain pen for my girlfriend and she’s loving it. The Fine nib is great and the pen seems relatively sturdy. Not the most popular entry-level pen, but it’s definitely a great value.

I adore the Kakuno pens. The only thing that would make them better would be if I could make them eyedropper pens. (Yes, I know there's a way to modify them, but I'm too lazy for that.)

I'm a grownup, but I do love the little faces on the nibs.

I bought the clear Kaliningrad with an extra fine nib to test ink samples. I really like the thinness of the line. I inked it with Lamy Obsidian and like the dense black. The nib has a bit of feedback but not bad. For the price I really like this pen

This pen is so great! I had the medium and fine nibs and really wanted to try the extra fine. It was only available in the demonstrator body, and was the same price as the other colors(unlike some stores, which charge more for the clear and/or extra fine variety). My initial reaction was that it was very very fine, and somewhat scratchy. However, I quickly realized that it was probably because I was trying to write very large and very fast. I decreased the size of my writing, and immediately fell in love. YOU CAN WRITE SO TINY!! I did a comparison to my other nibs, and this one obviously came out on top. I gave it to my husband yo try, and he claimed it for himself. No worry, I gladly accept any excuse to buy more.. Overall, the kakuno is my favorite pen, and I love it so much I have no interest in buying anything fancier or more expensive. I use it for my studies, and I have no desire to show-off or catch anyones attention. I would appreciate more color options in the fine-nib, perhaps even some of the limited edition colors, if possible. Also, my experience with Pen Chalet has been superb. Thank you!
