cartridge pen

3

Kinda sucks being in an area where even sticks aren’t that easy to acquire, let alone wood burning and/or carving tools. Been wanting to play with some Ogham staves though, so of course, I made some.

I cut some paper into three inch strips, rolled them around a pen ink cartridge thing, painted them, then used a metallic marker to draw on the symbols.

Took a couple hours for all the paper rolling and waiting for the paint to dry, but it was easy to do.

My First Fountain Pen

I have been drooling over the beauty that fountain pens are.  Often thinking they were only for people that are super fancy or that are hand lettering experts.  I was so wrong, I know.

So then I stumbled into Lamy fountain pens, and saw all the other options in a variety of styles and prices.  But I didn’t want to “invest” in one just yet.  What if I didn’t like it?  What if it ended up on my desk, collecting dust and abandoned?  

I did some very quick research one night and found Pilot’s kaküno fountain pen.  It looked very cute, extremely affordable, and the reviews were good enough to make me want to try it.  In my Amazon cart it went!

Couple days later I got my package (thank you Amazon Prime) and was over the moon excited to try my very first fountain pen.  But I wanted to share the experience with you, so of course I have a video available.

But first let’s get some basic information out of the way:

How much is it? I paid $9.82
Where to buy?  I only found this on Amazon, but depending where you live you may find it in local stores.
Link to Amazon? My pleasure! Here you go: http://amzn.to/2qEZut9

The cartridge that I bought (suggested by Amazon) was used up fairly quick, in my opinion.  I started using it on March 29th and had to replace it on April 13th.  It wasn’t the only pen I used but did use it daily. 

Here is the link to the refills that I bough with it: http://amzn.to/2p5BmhO

So what are my thoughts so far?

Bottom line, I love this fountain pen!  And this only tells me that, hopefully, I will also love the next one I purchase (possible a Lamy one, got any recommendations?).

My number one favorite thing about this pen: how light it is.  I’ve been having issues with my wrist and while this pen can’t fix that, it definitely helps by not forcing me to put too much pressure on it while writing.

My number two favorite thing is the nib.  I didn’t even pay attention to it when ordering the pen, but luckily I bought the fine nib one.  And I love it!  I love all fine things in the writing world!  But as far as I’ve seen, there is also a medium nib, if fine isn’t your thing. (I haven’t purchased this one, but here is a link to one I found: http://amzn.to/2qF3FoF).

And that is all I have to say about this very cute and awesome kaküno fountain pen.  I love it and I highly recommend it for someone, like me, that is brand new to the world of fountain pens.

Hope you’ve found this useful for your developing pen addiction and let me know if you decide to try it!


Happy writing!

GOD DAMMIT BENDY, I KNOW YOU GOT AN INK MACHINE TO RUN, BUT YOU’RE NOT SCREWING WITH MY PENS TO GET ALL THE INK YOU NEED, YOU SADIST.

I bought stuff… Shouldn’t have bought stuff probably. But I did, wanted red-ish ink and paper and a better thing to clean my fountain pens out than what I’m using now. 

Still have to figure out what I’m doing for Mom’s Day but I think I have an idea… I’ll put my Falcon with black then Oxblood to work. If it gets here before then, if not then just my Falcon with black and other paper I have kicking around that works. Or I’ll use my Sheaffer Cartridge/School Pen/Student Pen with black ink.

Yes, I know I have a lot of pens. My EDC in my purse. Which is not a large purse; everything is just neatly and efficiently crammed in it.
