This pen from Ohto...

This pen from Ohto is a great addition to my arsenal of writing utensils. Instead of going into a long-winded, head-over-heels description, here are some pros and cons about this specific, 0.5 mm tip graphic liner.

- The metal tip makes this pen feel sturdy while writing.
- Very smooth and even ink release, especially across regular notebook paper. I can hold this pen down forever and never get a skip in the ink. My hand really does feel like it is gliding across a cloud on the paper.
- The ink itself dries very quickly. No worries about smudging your words after writing, even if you are left-handed or if your hands are damp.
- Stylish look. The black and orange combo makes this utensil stand out.
- The tip is as advertised, 0.5 mm. True.

- The plastic body speaks for itself. Obviously this is a drawing pen, not specifically designed for pages worth of rigorous note-taking. Thus, any sweat makes the pen slide in the hand.

Keep in mind that the pros for this specific pen greatly outweigh the single con that I have. Drying the pen off, as well as your hand, relieves the negative situation immediately. This is one of the pens that I use daily, for long periods at a time, and it has never let me down. Great price, look, utility, durability, ink, etc... Everything about the Ohto graphic liner makes it a surprisingly utilitarian pen. Should you buy? Yes. Should you buy more than one? Definitely.

INK: 5/5
TIP: 4.5/5 (the occasional skip is very, very rare.)
FEEL: 5/5
OVERALL: 5/5 (round up, great pen!)
BUY?: Yes

These pens are AMAZING!...

These pens are AMAZING! They glide like a dream, and do not fade like microns when erasing pencil lines. I will be buying more as soon as they restock.

This pen is a workhorse that never fails. I started with the 005 because I thought that a needle point would be fun, but the ink seemed to have trouble flowing after a while. With the 02, I have never had it fail to put ink on the page. It writes clearly and is a heavy black which I love. It will bleed a little if you leave it in one space for too long, but that is not really a fault of the pen.

Very smooth black ink. Good for technical drawing, or even general writing.

I use this for picking out small details on plastic model airplanes. It seems to work very well for that application.

Really good pen, good ink flow, only downside is being a needle point pen it does draw a little scratchy if you are heavy handed.

This pen was no good from the start. Leaked ink all over my hand, it was probably just a lemon but I wasn't that impressed with ink or line quality to try another one.

I really enjoy writing with all the sizes of the Ohto Graphic Liner, but the .5 mm is my favorite. This has become my everyday pen and I find myself grabbing it first over some of my more expensive pens.

Great pen even if it cost more!

I like the metal point. I'm hard on pens, and need the metal tip. I will be traveling overseas with it instead of my Rapidographs, which are way too messy for traveling.
I like the 005 - .3 mm size the best.

For years I have been an avid Pilot Hitec-C user. This is the only everyday note taking pen that I consider better than the Hitec-C. I found the pen to last longer, is more durable and the line thickness the same as the 0.5mm Pilot versions. Also the ink feels wet going on all papers, but doesn't bleed nor feather on any paper. For the price and size this is a great pen that has many line thicknesses to choose from.
