I received my Ohto Dude...
August 28, 2012
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.
