I returned two Ohto Dude...
Verified Purchase
I returned two Ohto Dude fountain pens. Both of them have nib problems. Their lines are as thick as those of medium nibs. My second nib is scratchy. I don't think they have a good quality of nibs. Although they have a beautiful appearance, I will never buy any Ohto fountain pens.

I received my Ohto Dude...
Verified Purchase
I received my Ohto Dude Fountain Pen (fine nib) about a week ago. It comes with two ink cartridges in the body of the pen - very nice. Right from the start, I found the pen easy to use with no trouble setting up. As I began to write, I noticed the smoothness of the pen and how effortlessly it glides on the paper. The ink flow was a bit heavier (for a fine nib) than I expected, but consistent in its delivery. It never skipped, and I found the shading rather attractive. The ink goes on very wet (left handers beware), but dries in about 15 seconds... write on!! Overall a very nice pen... and the price makes it easily a top pick for starters (like me).

The pen writes fine both posted and unposted - no balance issues that I could detect. The only thing is that the pen is a bit longer than most when posted... more sensitive writers may notice the difference. Additionally, the "rattling" of the extra ink cartridge stored in the body is noticeable. But seriously, who rattles their pen so much that it becomes annoying? The cap is secure... REALLY secure, and takes a little more effort to take off. Good thing I work out!

As the name implies, it's a DUDE pen. This means it will have some quirks, and some facets that get on your nerves. It doesn't respond well to nagging... hahaha - j/k. But it's a pen that is a must-have in your rotation. When the need arises, it won't let you down.
