great inexpensive pen
I'm a big fan of Pilot fountain pens. I now have three Kakunas, in EF, F, and M nibs (as well as several Metropolitans, and a Plumix and a Penmanship). Its consistent and reliable and always works, even when if I haven't used it for several days. It's a smooth nib, especially with the M nib.
I like the triangular grip section that helps me hold it correctly. Its edges are rounded/not as pronounced as the grip on Lamy pens. I love that they have smileys on the nibs. It's a cute, practical pen at a price point that doesn't break the bank.
