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 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.

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.

I wanted a mini fountain pen, and this certainly fits the description. Capped, it's the same length as my Fisher Bullet Space Pen, and it's not much thicker. Posted, it's plenty long enough to write with, due to the extra long cap, although it feels a little thin. For now, I'll carry it in a shirt pocket, but could probably carry it in a pants pocket like the Fisher.

Writing quality was very poor at first, with little ink flow. After flushing it out, adjusting nib and feed, and finally spreading the tines slightly, it now writes well. So far I'm using a Monteverde red cartridge, which isn't the greatest ink in any case. I have other colors, and a cartridge can be refilled, using a syringe, with any ink you want. This pen isn't suitable for eyedropper conversion, and there's no converter I know of that would work.

After all the fiddling with nib and feed I had to do, this could have been three stars instead of four. The end result is an excellent little pen, with no defects in materials, and if you're lucky, you'll get one that works right away. On the other hand, you might have to tune it a bit.

I love this little pen! It has a very smooth writing line, and when you post the cap, it's comfortable in the hand. I generally prefer broad nibs, but this one writes really nicely.
