Having read the older reviews about poor writing ability, I felt compelled to
write a more recent review stating I find the Ohto Tasche writing ability to be
Using the default Ohto ink cartridge I find this pen puts down a fine line,
about the same as the Ohto F-Spirit. I suspect that when the Ohto cartridge runs
out and I replace the ink in it with Noodler's Black, it may write a slightly
thicker line, but, I anticipate it'll be just like the Ohto F-Spirit in this
Given how inexpensive this fountain pen is, it's a great deal. No idea if its
steel nib maybe more prone to damage if too much pressure is applied to it, but,
over the last three weeks, it's writing just fine for me.
My only regret about this pen is that it won't take an ink converter. I'm going
to have to resort to using a syringe to refill a used cartridge when I want to
use bottled ink. However, I do find that the Ohto black ink is fine (aside from
lack of water proof qualities). For the price and the size, that's a small price

I have 8 fountain pens, and this is my favorite. I had some trouble with dry
ink flow, so I flossed the tines of the nib with nylon thread I had from
quilting. It wrote very nicely then, with an even flow. Then I switched from
Noodler's Blue to Aurora Black ink. Now it writes like my friend's expensive
Waterman, just wet enough and very, very smooth.
I love the cobalt blue color and the silver barrel, and the pen's overall design
is very attractive. I like how compact it is. I wish it could use a converter,
but that's a tradeoff in a pen this compact.

I bought this pen a couple of years ago and have been very satisfied with it.
The nib is smooth and lays down a fairly wet, fine-medium line, unlike many
Japanese pens which tend to run to extra-fine. I used it in my planner/notebook
and it never failed to write when needed. It was also beautifully made, and the
cap slid smoothly and snugly over the barrel. It exudes quality. I refilled the
cartridge with Waterman or Noodlers ink and never had a problem with flow.
My only caveat is that, because it's a mini pen, the barrel is narrow. But, it
fits where others don't.
I'd happily buy it again and recommend it highly.

I just recently got this pen, and I love it!
It looks beautiful, it writes beautiful, a little thick for my tastes, but, it
writes like butter.
*WARNING* You -might- have to do a little bit of work on the nib.

Loved the pen from the start. I wanted a small pen for my everyday carry and
preferred something I would like and care for (so as not to lose it). It was my
first fountain pen and so there was a learning curve, I couldnt write w it for a
while and then discover i had accidentally bent one of the nibs but then simply
bent it back and has been working like a watch ever since. My one drawback is
that as part of my everyday carry it has been clipped to my pocket every day and
after 8 months the clip has slightly bent out so that it slips out a bit every
now and again when i sit down.
