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.

Nicely made, feels good in the hand, but the ink skips and is difficult to get flowing after the pen has been capped for any length of time. Also, my nice red pen has a cap with a definite orange stripe, not very impressive.

I liked the styling and smooth writing of the Ohto Rook Fountain Pen. But I quickly realized that the cap does not fit well on the end and falls off when writing. Then the pocket clip came off, and, finally, the coating wore off where the sections connect and disconnect. Even at $16, this pen is of such low quality that I would recommend choosing al alternative.

I really love this pen. Super compact, fits in virtually any pocket. Nice, even ink flow, and the nib isn't scratchy at all. Overall, I'm really happy with this purchase.

Cute *little* pen. I saw in reviews before buying this that the tiny size surprised some people (despite the ~18mm U.S. coin shown for comparison), but this is *precisely why* I bought this pen. Given how small (It's a bit like a cigarette that bulges at the ends.) and modestly-priced it is, it's quite comfortable to write with when the over-sized cap is posted. I like thin pens, and this is a bit *too* thin for me to use every day, but it's a great back-up pen to add to the every-day-carry pen case.
