I am very happy with the Pilot Kakuno pen. I purchased for my son and me. I got the medium nib because I like a bold style when writing in my daily journal. Great feel, price and look for everyday usage.

I ordered this pen a few weeks ago to use as a correcting pen when grading my students' assignments. I got the orange one and used my Pilot Iroshizuku Yuyake (finally used it!!) In this pen. I love the way it writes and I am comfortable taking it everywhere. I like the happy face on the nib because it reminds me to smile while grading! Great price point for those starting out with fountain pens.

A fantastic light weight fountain pen! I use it to draw my art (I had moved on from traditional bottle ink and fountain nibs because of an incident). Its great for writing also, definitely worth the price!

This is a great non-flashy fountain pen for everyday use, or even to take to work. The body is high quality and the pen is simple and attractive. Also love the English instructions and the fact that it came with a black ink cartridge! Writes smoothly and easily.
