DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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.

somehow, i didn't notice the dime in the picture of this pen. It is a very nice looking pen, but a lot smaller than i expected. It is a little bit wider than a wooden pencil. That being said - i quite like it. It needs a bit of a tune up before use. The ink didn't flow very well out of the box, but after some tweeking it is now performing well.

The look and size of this pen is fantastic but loses its appeal as soon as it touches the paper. I am very disappointed in this pen. The ink flow was abysmal. The tip was very rigid and would scratch the paper. This is not a smooth pen at all. I feel like I wasted the money on this pen.

Quite a nice pen. The design is excellent, and it writes well. The compact capped form is handy and fits in a pants pocket without trouble, and it fits the hand well when open. The barrel seemed a touch narrow when writing at first, but I adapted to it after only a few minutes of use. The aluminum construction is lightweight and lends itself to a light stroke on the page.

The nib takes a little 'warming up', that is it improves with use, but after a couple of weeks of light use I find it writes well. The pen has also survived a few inadvertent 'drop tests' with no mess, loss of functionality, or obvious damage. I'm glad I got this pen; it is well worth the cost.

My newly purchased Rook is a really nice fountain pen: I fitted it with a Diamine Turquoise international cartridge and from the get-go, flow was optimal, it writes a nice, steady, and consistent line, and it\'s compact size is just what I was looking for. For the $, it\'s a good deal if you need a fp.

Just received my tiny Rook in the mail today. It is so cute. Once I figured out how to open it. . . it began writing instantly. It writes very smoothly for me. I love the look of this pen and its portable size.
The fine nib isn't as fine as other Japanese F pens (i.e. Hero) or even my Sheaffer 330. It's between a fine and medium western nib.
