3.4 (8 reviews)
Just as the Castle Rook in chess is one of the most versatile chess pieces, the Ohto Rook Fountain pen is one of the most versatile pens you can have in your collection. The compact pen is easy to use and has a soft shape displaying a beautiful symmetry of form. Bypassers will be intrigued by the unique look. When closed, the pocket-sized pen measures only 3.7 inches (9.3 cm) long. But with the cap posted on the back of the pen, the pen measures a comfortable 5.6 inch (14.2 cm) length great for writing. Each pen includes one free black international short ink cartridge. Compact body is not compatible with converters and pen does not come with a box.

Pen dimensions: 3.7 inch (9.3 cm) length x 0.43 inch (1.1 cm) diameter capped. 5.6 inch (14.2 cm) length when pen is in use with cap posted on back.

This is a fine little...

This is a fine little pen! And when I say "little," I mean LITTLE. It's super tiny, but quite comfortable to write with when posted, at least for my smallish hands. The cap snaps securely onto the pen, and holds well when posted, also, so you don't need to worry about it flying off.

The only thing keeping this pen from getting full stars was that I had to carefully adjust how the feed and nib lined up before I started writing. Didn't take long, but I was worried I would break it, as this is my first foray into the fountain pen world.

It's a pity it won't take a converter (truly, even a mini-converter would be too long), but for now I'm liking the J. Herbin Perle Noire cartridge I have loaded in it.

I love this pen! It writes well, puts down a fairly fine line - not as fine as say, my Sailor, but it is a fraction of the price. It's design is very clever, compact is an understatement! It also seems to travel well. The body is metal, not plastic, and the finish and quality seem high. I'm not sure how the anodized? finish will stand up to long term use, but for now it's a very attractive and functional little object.

The pen is smaller than it looks in the pictures, which I didn't mind so much. What I did mind was that this 'fine nib' pen wrote way too thick. With a J Herbin Pensive Violet cartridge in the tank, it wrote much more what I would consider medium or even broad. It felt like I was writing with a 1.0mm pen, not a 'fine' nib. If you're looking for a compact pen in this price range, I would recommend the Kaweco Sport line over this in a heartbeat.

I wanted a pocket fountain pen and this has been great. Small and light, but comfortable in hand. The metal body is sturdy and holds up to whatever's in my pockets and the occasional drop. The clip is strong enough to hold the pen in place is my pants pocket. No issues with leaks or losing the cap. The pen has been a reliable writer from the start, no ink flow problems. Quickly becoming a favorite pen.

It wouldn't write for more than three minutes at a time. It looked nice, and I wanted it to write as well as it looked. The nib and feed would not adjust and of course, I had to put ink it to find this out. Pay attention to the reviews of these Ohto pens, people, if you get a good one ( About 1 out of 7, since I chased around and tallied reviews ) it is superb. If not, total rubbish. This company must have terrible quality control. Don't gamble, you can buy a whole handful of Pilot Petits for this much money.
