The Pilot Kaküno is a delightful fountain pen that is ideal for both first-time fountain pen
users and experienced writers. “Kaküno” means “to write” in Japanese, and that’s
just what this pen helps users to do by featuring an appealing smiley face on the
nib, reminding users to orient the nib correctly.
The white barrel pens feature the fine steel nib (with a winking smiley face), the gray barrel options feature the medium steel nib (with a traditional smiley face), and the clear barrel option features the extra fine, fine and medium steel nib (with a tongue sticking out).
The cap and comfortable barrel are designed to not roll away when put down. Novices will soon become seasoned fountain pen users, and seasoned users will enjoy the fun, exuberant
writing the Kaküno fountain pen delivers.
Filling System: Proprietary Ink Cartridges or Con-40 Converter.

I just love this pen! I bought one on a whim when I just *had* to have a clear pen so I could gaze at the inner workings. (It calms my ADD when I'm in CE for work.) I chose the Medium nib and had a converter added so that I could play with whichever color of ink suits my mood. Because it is so inexpensive, I am comfortable carrying it everyday and letting others use it, when needed. My daughter has begun expressing an interest in everything "Japan" and really liked how her signature looks with the M nib. So, the next time we are in the neighborhood, I will be treating her to a Kaküno as her first fountain pen. I may get another one ore two in different colors for myself because they're just so cute! (And, I KNOW I'll convert more people to fountain pens when I let them borrow these. ;-)
