I love the design of this pen!! The way it folds up is great, it looks
phenomenal, and the thin, anodized feeling of the barrel is quite nice to hold
onto when writing. The fine line it makes is perfect, with just the right flow
to make a dark line, but doesn't bleed, and looks perfectly neat and tidy. It
allows me to write small and compact, the way I like to.

LOVE THE PEN. It is true that at the beginning, I was disappointed with the nib
because it was scratchy and rough. However, it's been 5 days since I got my Ohto
Rook Fountain Pen and I've been using it ever since. Either I got so use to
writing with it, or because it is not as new anymore, I do not feel the
scratchiness when I write! In fact, I am completely in love with this pen and I
will use it forever!! The Ohto Rook Fountain Pen is my FAVORITE so far :D

, December 3, 2011
I had been looking for an inexpensive fountain pen that I could carry around in
my shirt pocket and the Ohto Rook has proved to be ideal. When posted, it is a
perfect length and feels very comfortable in the hand. My pen wrote smoothly
from the moment it arrived and the ink flow is very good, with no skipping.
While a converter won't fit in the pen, it does take inexpensive short
international cartridges. This has the advantage of being able to carry an
extra cartridge in a pocket or handbag should the pen run out of ink when one is
away from home or office. The aluminum and orange color makes for a striking
look and design.
This is no posh pen but an inexpensive workhorse that happens to look fantastic.
It is just what I wanted as an everyday writer when away from home.

Small stature but big on style. This is one of those odd little things that you
run across, don't spend too much money on, that works about as well as you would
expect. It is a small pen, and when it arrived, at first I didn't remember what
I had ordered that was so damn small! But, it works. If you want a great
writing pen, go with a Sailor or Pilot. If you want something that no one else
has, or has seen, go with this one. It writes okay, albeit not perfectly, and
the fine nib is much like an extra fine nib from other manufacturers.
4 out of 5 stars, as it needs to write better to get the 5th star.

First Fountain Pen In 25 Years.
The first thing I did with this pen was to write on the ceiling while locating
studs to hang shelving.
The second thing I did was chase my cousin around her house trying to get the
I carry this pen in my pocket and compare it to the Fisher Space Pen I also
carry. So far, each have their pro's and con's, but the Ohto Rook Fountain Pen
is a lot more fun to pull out and show off! Everyone is interested in the thing
the minute they see it and after they find out it's a fountain pen they are
amazed and want to play with it.
I don't write books. I keep only the sparsest personal log. I have lousy hand
writing. This fountain pen makes it more fun to write, perhaps I will write more
just for having the Otho Rook fountain Pen!
