Pen, Ink, and Notebook Starter Set - Fall 2021
Venture into the fun world of fountain pens with this quality set of pen, ink, and paper from around the world. Perfect for students or those looking to get into fountain pens, this box has everything an aspiring writer needs to get started.
First, there's the pen - a Pilot Kakuno clear demonstrator fountain pen in medium point. At first, the Pilot Kakuno might seem like a children's fountain pen. True, the packaging does state that the Kakuno is "simply the best choice for your 1st fountain pen!" But, you'll be surprised by just how fun and well-made this Pilot pen is.
The completely clear demonstrator barrel and clipless cap allow the writer to see the inner workings of the fountain pen. The Kakuno fills using Pilot proprietary fountain pen cartridges (1 included) or bottled ink using the CON-40 converter. The CON-40 can be a little tricky to fill - you may have to employ a blunt needle syringe to fill it up all the way.
Pilot takes great care in producing quality pens no matter the price level. Even though the Kakuno is a "starter pen," Pilot fits a reliable, iridium-tipped stainless steel nib on these pens. To help appeal to kids (or the young at heart) the Kakuno's nib has a whimsical smiling face engraved with the point size.
To fill your new Pilot Kakuno, we included a set of Pennonia Inks that we featured back in February's Ink Flight. Seven colorful fountain pen inks are contained in secure, twist-top plastic vials. Sample 2ml of ink - good enough for a few converter fill-ups - of each color.
Once your fountain pen is filled up and ready to go, use the ink-friendly paper in the included Endless Storyboard pocket notebooks to take notes, jot thoughts, and plan for success. Each notebook contains 64 pages of 90gsm paper with a dot grid format. Sow your ideas and dreams to later reap a reality of your own creation.
