The clip fell off on...
, January 16, 2014
The clip fell off on the first day. I found the pen in my pocket -no clip.
The pen is made of very thin aluminum. Very cheaply made. The edges of the
grooves where you grab the pen are sharp and they catch on the skin of your
fingers. Very annoying. I had to sand down the grooves so I can actually use
this thing. I like the shape and size of it, though. It fits in your hand
nicely. Comfortable to hold -once you sand down the grooves a bit.
I am surprised at the quality drop in Ohto pens. I've had many Ohto pens before
but this pen has changed my mind about the brand. I don't even think they are
made in Japan anymore.
It writes okay for a needle-point pen. Not very scratchy and you don't have to
hold it at a certain angle to get a smooth writing feeling. But the line it puts
down is not really solid unless you write very slowly. Trying to see if I can
put in a different refill and maybe use it as a desk pen.
Not an expensive pen but considering all the issues, I wouldn't recommend it.
