I have been using this pen for a few months now, mainly writing in my Moleskine watercolor journal to annotate my sketches. I love the pink color and compact size of the pen--it fits neatly in my small watercolor sketch kit. It writes beautifully and reliably in response to a light touch. Too much pressure and it feels somewhat scratchy unless the paper is extremely smooth. I'm generally writing on generously sized, somewhat textured watercolor paper with it. It is fine on that with a light touch...I get a nice consistent line and ink flow whether I am writing cursively or in block letters. Here is an example page from my journal:

Recently, I refilled a cartridge with Noodler's Lexington Gray (using a syringe). It took some effort to flush out the original non-waterproof ink but once the Lex Gray started flowing through I finally had reasonably waterproof ink in my pen. That allows me to sketch in watercolor as usual and not worry that writing already in place may smear. And frankly, I feel the pen writes more smoothly with the Lex Gray than it does with its "native" cartridge ink.

The pen has stood up fairly well to my not-so-careful handling and frequent exposure to water, but it is worth noting that the words "Ohto Tasche" which are silkscreened onto the cap have partially flaked off. I'm not fussed about it (and didn't take any stars off) because my concern is mainly how well the pen writes and serves as a daily journaling tool. In that capacity it is great. Of course, if the pen were handled more carefully than I do mine, the paint flaking off might not be an issue.

If this pen were available with a medium nib, I would certainly buy it.

I bought this pink Ohto Tasche to replace a silver one I'd owned for several years and then lost.

It is probably the most convenient pen I own since it closes into such a compact shape and fits perfectly into a pocket. The construction of the pen is solid and it is weighted nicely when posted. On the other hand, as several reviewers have pointed out, the nibs on the Tasche tend to be very hit or miss, and the ink it comes with is objectively TERRIBLE. If you're willing to try tuning the nib, however, it's a great cheap fountain pen.

Of note: although Ohto is a Japanese company, the 'fine' nib on this pen is MUCH closer to a medium than a fine, and writes with about the same thickness as a 0.7mm fiber tip pen.

Nice small pen. I bought this to show support during breast cancer month. The nib is smooth, BUT is not as fine as I was thinking it would be :(

This was my first Japanese fountain pen. I wanted to come back to fountain pens after leaving them for so long (My first was a Lamy Safari, medium nib, that my dad gifted to me) and since my handwriting has gotten quite small and neat over the years, I thought a fine nib would be right. Even though this pen didn't have the best of reviews, the price was good, and I liked the appearance.
For the price I paid, I'm very happy with it~ I love the colour and style. The nib, however, doesn't seem to really be a true "fine". It's either a very very wet fine, or a good medium... It makes my handwriting blur together a bit, since it's already small... I'm in search of a true fine nib that still looks good and is student priced ~ However, ink flow is very good, no scratching, and rarely any skipping.
I'd give it a 3.5, but since there's no half stars, I'll round up to a 4. I think it's an nice pen for beginning fountain users or people like me, returning to fountains after a long time.
