I own this pen and consider it average, but there are better
alternatives--especially if you can spend more. Although 1/3 longer, the Pilot
Capless "decimo" pen is far superior with an exceptionally well-made
iridium-alloy tipped 18K rhodium-plated gold nib. Also, Pilot's Stella 90s is a
great, little pen that is, unfortunately, ignored.
Please note that on the OHTO Tasche and other OHTO fountain pens, the steel
"iridium point Germany" nib is actually made in China and quality control isn't
the best. Just because it says "Germany" does not mean that it is "Made in
Germany." This fact has been documented by the famous pen repair and nib expert
Richard Binder in a recent issue of Stylus magazine.
BTW, there is, in fact, a very short International-sized converter that probably
fits the Tasche although using one defeats the pen's 'portable' design. I
believe isellpens.com may carry the correct converter.
