| I LOVE this pen, it's...

I LOVE this pen, it's very tiny and produces very crisp, clear and clean lines.
Although I wouldn't highly recommend it for people who have bad 'posture' or
grip on pens (it's a tight woodcase body, so not to comfortable in hand if you
tightly hold it), I would recommend it to anyone who wants small lines, one
downfall is the rate at which it loses ink, in one week it has already lost half
of its cartridge. Maybe it's just my obsessive use for it. Thumbs up.

An update from three weeks later: the more I use it the more I like it. It is
writing smoother on regular paper, leaves no globs, and is a still a nice small
pen in my hand. I am on the JetPens site specifically to order another one in
case I leave this one somewhere!

This pen is a nice petite body style to fit in my purse or pen case, but it has
a tendency to be scratchy. It writes much more smoothly on my Kokuyo Campus
Todai and Campus MIO papers than on regular American paper. So for those of you
who write primarily on beautiful smooth papers this pen will work just fine--for
those who don't you might have trouble with it cutting out. Another new pen I
got this week was the Pilot Acroball Smooth Writing Ballpoint .5mm. It has the
styling of a regular ballpoint pen (not like the metal of the Pieni) and the .5
tip is noticeably bigger--but it writes beautifully on any paper and is still
quite nice for those who like thin lines.

This pen is truly a disappoint...
This review is from Ohto Pieni Wooden Body Mini Needle-Point Ballpoint Pen - 0.5 mm - Gray Body

This pen is truly a disappointment. First, the construction is flimsy--the inner
ink chamber rattles against the wooden pen body. Secondly, I was using this pen
yesterday and suddenly felt stickiness on my fingers. I thought it was the ink
dripping, but I discovered it was the paint of the pen itself!! I have never had
paint drip off my pen body before. I couldn't believe that Ohto would put out
such a low quality ballpoint pen and charge so much for it! I am totally
disappointed at this product.

Cute pen. Love the design....
This review is from Ohto Pieni Border Needle-Point Ballpoint Pen - 0.3 mm - Black Body
, April 19, 2012
Cute pen. Love the design. Kind of on the more expensive side in terms of what
you receive. Would get a 3/5 if it weren't so nice looking!
I got the 0.3mm pen with a 0.5mm refill. Now, at first I thought both performed
rather below average but I got them to work well with changing just 2 things. 1
- write with light pressure. As with many pens below 0.4 mm, it helps with
scratchiness when you ease up on the pressure. 2 - use smooth paper. I first
used a generic notebook and the pen was skipping and acting horribly. On
smoother paper it wrote sooo much better.
Warning: Both size tips had ink globbing issues and smeared easily because of
Warning 2: This is a wooden body pen and will damage easily. Odd, I know, but
adds to the overall quirkiness of it (if you like that).
Even with all that, I still think it's a fun, good-looking pen that I'm happy to
have in my collection.
