This is a beatiful pen...
, June 18, 2012
This is a beatiful pen with a great feel. The bamboo body feels really sleek and
a little bit decadent. However, the one that I purchased may have had a flaw or
it could be an oversight in the design. The gold band at the end of the cap has
a very sharp edge on it. Normally this should be perfectly flush with the bamboo
material beneath it so that you would not be able to feel the edge of the brass
band. But this was very uncomfortable as it lay directly against the skin below
the knuckle of my index finger and actually left a scratch. I took the cap to my
shop and burnished the sharp exposed edge agains a granite slab and made it
quite smooth. It's much better now. Besides that, I feel the cap is very heavy
campared to the body of the pen and if I did not hold on, the pen pen would fall
backwards out of my hand. I found it better if I write without the cap attached.
The point is a little too fine for me but if you like a really fine line, this
is a good pen. I give it a thumbs up on beauty and onlt a "fair" in

I really like the writing experience of the Ohto ceramic refills. They lay down
a fine, dark black line with minimal bleed through most of the paper I've used.
The bamboo body looks great, but there are a few issues: (1) the pen is a bit
top-heavy when posted, (2) there is a sharp edge on the underside of the cap
that becomes a bit uncomfortable when the pen is posted, and (3) after about a
week of use, a hairline crack has developed in the bamboo body. It looks like
it's only a cosmetic problem, but does raise some concerns about the long-term
durability of this pen.

Beautiful pen with dark black ink. I didn't expect the "ceramic roller ball
feel" to be that important, but it's actually pretty awesome. Makes me feel
important when I'm just writing notes :P The only thing is that the cap is
rather heavy so it feels a little unbalanced when I write extensively with it.

given them as gifts. (great!)

i noticed the description for this pen says it features a bamboo clip and a
metal body... just saying. I could be wrong. But, this appears to be incorrect.
Unless the body is actually metal painted to look like bamboo or whatever. Haha!
I hope this pen writes as beautifully as it looks. I plan to order this.
