Winner of both Japanese Good Design and Kids Design Awards.
The Kakuno Fountain Pen was developed as an introductory fountain pen for curious beginners. Every last detail of this inexpensive and simple looking pen has been considered for ease of use and writing enjoyment. Even changing inks and cleaning the nib is easy.
The Kakuno has a lightweight, hexagonal, 85% recycled plastic body, with a snap-on cap that is easy to remove. Both cap and body are designed to prevent rolling away.
The grip area has a subtle triangular shape, while the nib has a fun smiley face sticking out its tongue. Both of these design elements ensure that you learn how to properly hold the pen for best writing.
From kids to adults, it will be fun to write with Kakuno. We can personally attest to its enjoyability!
