Customer Reviews

it's a great little penThis is a $10 fountain pen, and can't compare to pens 10x (or more) in price. Don't expect it replace your Loom or Vanishing Pen; the body is plastic, and the nib feels a little scratchy on normal paper. However, for the price, it's a great little pen! Relatively cheap, easy to use, and even fun (the smiley face nib is cute, as is the cap color). It's a great pen to use day-to-day, and it's a not a nightmare if you lose it.One caveat - this Fine nib is about the smallest I'd go. I got a Kakuno EF as well, and it's too scratchy for my taste. I find myself using the Fine much more.My only problem with the pen is the lack of a clip. I bought this to use with my Hobonichi Techo, a daily planner. The cover of my techo even matches the cap color. Unfortunately without a clip to clip it onto the cover it doesn't "come along for the ride" as much as I'd like. If they made this pen with a clip, I'd easily buy another couple to keep around. 4To all the people saying the CON-70 doesn't fit and the nibs can't be changed.This will be a simple review for a simple pen.- Yes I recommend it.- Yes I would buy it again.Pros:- Nice size and weight- Seems built well as other pilot fountain pens.- Easily INTERCHANGEABLE NIBS!- CON-70 FITS without modifications.- Cleans very easily, like the compatible Pilot Pen's. So it is my go to for the J Herbin 1670's.Neither Pro nor Con- I have many pens so the fact that it uses pilot cartridges is nice for me.Cons:- Holes: in the cap and in the body.- No clip. I've seen people use the octagonal kaweco clip on there, but pilot should have made and option for one.So as you may read from the photos, the setup is:- 1.0mm stub nib from a pilot plumix- CON-70- J Herbin Emerald ink- Black n' Red A5 notebook.And yes I know my handwriting is not very good.Overall I give this pen a CARL JR FIVE STAR rating. 5Great writing, lightweight pen. Love it, just wish it had a clip.I use my fountain pen for everything but checks, and I only use one pen at a time. I ink with black ink only, and use cartridges instead of a refillable container (which I've used in the past, but I find it not worth the trouble/mess when using a fine nib, since ink lasts longer).I love this little lightweight pen. I didn't expect to, after years of using a Metropolitan; but before that, I used a Lamy Safari, so it's in that realm, though even lighter. It's great for extended writing, super easy on your hand. It writes smoothly and well, and I don't have startup problems with it that I sometimes had with my metropolitan. The cap also stays on better.I love the cheery winky nib, and the colors make it easy to spot (I always pick white or colorful pens over more sophisticated, attractive colors, because I'm messy, and white is easiest to spot).I just wish it had a clip on the cap. I like to clip my pen to my planner or notebook, and thought the design is anti-roll, it's not as convenient as having it physically attached to your paper. 4Great pen despite the occasional leakThe pen is cute and is actually a really great writing pen too!The ink will sometimes get on my hands from the nib but not very much.I put a blue ink cartage in mine instead of the black it comes with. I've had it clog once after months of not using it. If it just clogs, some rubbing alcohol on the nib usually fixes it right up! 4Love the smiley face, but otherwise it falls just a little short of Pilot's other inexpensive offerings.It's not a perfect pen, even for the price. Honestly, I bought it exclusively for the smiley face nib, which I'll probably swap into a different pen.I prefer the 78G for a lighter, more traditional pen in the price range. I recommend them, or a metropolitan for something with more heft, as a cheap beginner's pen. But the Kakuno is simple, durable, and very non-intimidating for someone's first fountain pen. And the demonstrator section is really fun to look at.I think the biggest killer for me is the faceted section, however. The triangular shape reminds me of a Lamy Safari, and I don't like the feel of that pen, either. Added to the hex shaped body and cheesy plastic cap, and it just feels super plasticky.It writes as well as everything else with the same nib -- that includes everything from the 78g to the Prera -- and with just a little adjusting and smoothing you can get a smooth feel producing a lovely line finer than you can get from any stock German nib. I've used a Con-50 on mine and it works perfectly. 4Really nice for an inexpensive modelBeen using this for a while now, and I keep it on my desk at work. Surprisingly, it hasn't dried out and is pretty darn smooth for a pen with a steel nib that isn't completely broken in yet. I am currently using a cartridge with it; but intend to try out a converter and bottled ink next. (have to wait a bit, though, as I am still only 1/3 of the way through the cartridge ink.)The transparent feed is neat. It has a bit of decorative black plastic showing through the nib base and I'm betting I will be able to see when the ink runs out, as well as if any of the parts start to leak.I am used to using top of the line pens with 14k to 18k gold nibs. To get this degree of smoothness out of a cheaper steel nib is a nice surprise. 5Fun but leaks after awhile... a cheap way to get started but won't last for long.I purchased this pen in Fine a few months ago and really liked it. I tried this against the Metropolitan at the store, and liked this one better because it felt less precious and didn't look like an old man stuffy pen, and they both felt the same otherwise. I used it as my daily in meetings, class, and letters. I liked it so much that I decided to buy a second one so that I could leave one at work and carry one in my bag. Now that I have had both for at least two months I've decided that I like them, but will not continue to buy this brand.Pros: Writes nice, handles well, doesn't scream to be stolen, easy to buy ink refills, cheap enough to purchase multiple pens. Works well on quality paper. No fountain pen handles well on cheap notebook paper from what I understand.Cons: The first one I bought started leaking where the ink connects to the barrel, and this seems to be a common problem on the Internet, and no real solution. I imagine its just a matter of time when the second one will do the same. In addition, this pen doesn't have a clip on the cap, so I can't attach it to my notebook and I have to carry it around in my pocket and have lost it a couple times as a result.Both pens I have are Fine point, but one is definitely thicker than the other.My next pen will be the Lamy Safari. 3This is the best writing experience I've ever hadMy very first refillable fountain pen and boy did I choose right!This is the best writing experience I've ever had, and at such an affordable cost too!The Kakuno is such a happy pen with its nib smiling back at you as your write. The color combinations and options for this pen are pretty too and I actually already bought a second one in the colors green and grey.To fill it with my own ink I purchased the Pilot Con-50 and it worked easily. Definitely recommend this pen to anyone! 5Love in InkI've been wanting one of these fellas for a while and being a novice at using fountain pens this one "for the beginners" was right up my alley. I went to my local stationery store and saw these guys at $20 and went home to consider it, but that was before I found them on Amazon. Now I always have to think twice before I buy something. I can't speak for anybody else's comfort zone for pen usage but my hand feels pretty comfy holding the Kakuno. It feels as light as a feather to me. I've also started to sketch with pens and it just feels so cool to see the smooth ink flow just go where I want it to without smudging. I've been using it so often that I have to buy an emergency stash of ink cartridges in case I run out. It might not be the pen for everybody but I definitely have found another lifelong friend. 5This is the line to use for sketching!Love it! Love the design! Love the colors of the plastic! Love the shapes! Love the quality! Everything!NOTE: in these photos the cap may appear as soft and some vendors do use the phrase "soft cap." However, that is NOT true. The cap is made out of hard plastic, the same as the barrel. That plastic feels to be similar to plastic used in LEGO parts.Great news: the feed and the nib of this pen and the Plumix (with 1 mm stub) ARE interchangeable! Just take a paper napkin (to prevent leaving skin oil on the nib and the feed), grab around the nib and the feed, and pull them out carefully. The swapping between two pens take seconds! Also, it is extremely important and useful for cleaning. If you will forget one of your Pilot Kakuno pens with ink for a while or worse, with permanent ink, then you don't need to panic. Just disassemble and clean! I use mine for testing permanent inks where I cannot risk pens from other brands that are not as easy to disassemble.The size of the pen is just right for sketching. I have family big hands, but I love this design! By the way, there is a small knob on the cap to make it easier for removing the cap. Also, it is great that it does NOT have a clip on the cap! I love it! Those clips always get in my way.I own Lamy and Pelican, but after trying my friend's Pilot Kakuno, I was hooked and purchased four of these in various colors and nibs along with four of Plumix (for their 1 mm stubs). 5
