I really am impressed with both this pen and JetPens.com in general. The
product shipped quickly, and it wrote well straight from the packaging. I was
delighted to discover that the ink cartridges from my broken Manuscript brand
pen will also fit in this better quality compact one, which saved me from buying
more ink and letting the extra I'd accumulated go to waste. I enjoy having such
a smooth and classy writing experience right in my pocket, available at any
time, (so long as I don't forget which pocket I last left it in). All that
said, I highly recommend the Ohto Rook as a good compact fountain pen for
everyday use, as well as JetPens for your purchase of classy writing
Tips for the Rook:
- Don't be rough with it
- Be firm but gentle when posting the cap on the end of the pen; in other words,
don't force it, but push only as much as you need to to get it to grip.
- Don't press too hard when writing, or you may get paper fibers in the nib, or
even break it, though I haven't done that to mine.
- Overall, just don't be rough with it.
