Very impressed with this...
May 10, 2013
Very impressed with this pen! Just got away from an extended note - filled
meeting, and feel great at this purchase. The pen in its closed state is fairly
compact and slim. The pen opens to a fairly long length that definitely
doesn't feel very cramped or overly compact, which makes it easier to handle for
my larger hands despite how slender the body is. The weighting is solid, but
despite that, the pen remains quite flickable and light around the balance point
- a feature I've found with many pens in the Ohto lineup.
Writing is quite smooth and easy, thanks to the standard Ohto ink cartridge.
The pen responds well to a light touch, but the spring responds well to a heavy
touch. The ink flows well, but be careful with thinner papers - a heavy hand
may lead to a little bleed.
Finally, as to the caps - I've found remembering the following points helpful.
In setting the cap, first, remember that the cap sits precisely 180 degrees
from how it sits on the other end. If you flip the barrel 180 degrees, it
lines up precisely. Second, the easiest way to center the cap on the post is
to tuck the silver - colored flange flush to the chrome silver post, and push
the cap into place.
