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

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

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.
