Pilot Fountain Pen Kakuno - Black

Kakuno means "to write" in Japanese - this is a great beginner fountain pen. The thick barrel with a modest triangular grip make the pen incredibly ergonomic. The snap cap is solid and will not break away in a bag or pocket. The pen features a cute smiley face on the nib, which will smile at you whenever you are writing!

Comes with 1 cartridge.
Converter sold separately - compatible with Pilot Con-40.

Weight: 10g
Dimensions: 10cm capped (15cm posted)

5 of 5 Incredible value for money June 29, 2016
Reviewer: Philip Klugman from Vaughan, ON Canada  
Light weight but well balanced in my hand, especially when capped. The fine nib is a finer nib than others but it writes very smoothly and flows nicely with the supplied ink. Frankly, I am delighted with this pen and will use it daily. The flat casing surfaces not only look modern, but they are comfortable to work with. The black is more like a grey colour. I give it a big thumbs up!!

5 of 5 Best beginner's pen February 6, 2016
Reviewer: Ying Y from Toronto, ON Canada  
Many people say that the Metropolitan or Lamy Safari are the best beginner pen. I disagree. This pen is lighter than the Metro and doesn't have the very structured grip the Safari has so it's more natural to hold.

- surprisingly smooth nib
- zero tinkering needed out of the box
- light-weight (under 40g)
- cap posts very securely
- cute (not necessary, but a nice addition)

- despite the hexagonal cap/body, it has rolled off my desk multiple times (still writes perfectly, though)
- limited ink capacity (~1mL)
