Okay, I very rarely write...
Okay, I very rarely write reviews, but this pen prompted me to dust off the creative writing intuition. Also, let's say I am a pen aficionado. I own Mont Blanc, Cartier, Caran d'Ache, Pelikan, Underwood, Dunhill, Lamy, Cross, and an assortment of other pens and pencils. The Ohto Tasche Needle Point Ballpoint pen and the corresponding pencil are absolutely 100% phenomenal. I can't stand it when a pen is too thick, has that annoying nib that sits right in the middle of your index finger, isn't balanced, is too brittle or doesn't have quality appointments, and the refills are horrible . . . just to name a few pet peeves. I received this pen this afternoon, and it is quite frankly, OUTSTANDING (yes, I'm Shouting!). It will take Parker Gel Refills, Itoya Needle Point Gel Refills, and even Schmidt Capless rollerball refills. There are very few pens that can boast this feature. Also, when you port the cap, the rubber O-Ring accepts it and holds it in place nicely. The finish is excellent and the screw threads remind me of precision machinery. Ohto thought the Tasche line through and through.
Bravo Ohto. . .and Thank You Jet Pens for carrying this line. I'm sold.

This pen's a keeper....
This pen's a keeper. It writes very smoothly. It's small when capped, but full-sized when the cap is mounted for writing. It is perfect for a carry pen and travel pen. Even though it's small when capped, it is still "masculine" enough to be used by a man and it looks elegant. It has a great feel and perfect heft for a pocket pen. For the price, you won't be disappointed.

My purchase of a Zebra...
My purchase of a Zebra F-301 Compact while in S.Korea prompted me to look for another "fancier" compact pen to use at work. My Zebra had been my favorite pen until I got my Ohto Tasche. Kudos to the reviewer who mentioned other compatible ink refills. I did not like the stock ink the pen comes with. I am currently using the parker gel ink refill the other reviewer here mentioned. If anyone knows of other refills that are compatible with this pen please post, as I would like to try some other inks out :-)

It writes wonderfully....
It writes wonderfully. I truly loved this pen and its sleek modern look. The only problem I had was the comfort on the grip (because there is none).

Iâ€™m also a pen...
Iâ€™m also a pen aficionado.
I recently received my Ohto Tasche ballpoint and have been writing with it a bit.
One of the first things I noticed was that the one I received had a crooked clip, a major pen pet peeve of mine. The other Ohto pen I bought had the same flaw so it may well be typical of Ohto pens. Not good.
However, I still recommend this pen highly. The design is clever and unique. The cap posts very well and should stay on no matter how long you write. It is well-balanced and quite comfortable with a diameter that should please all but those who require a very thick grip.
The material and appointments are nothing special but adequate. As the other reviewer pointed out, the Tasche will take a variety of refills. Though I donâ€™t think it is quite as unique in that regard as perhaps he did.
The $20 price is quite reasonable and Iâ€™d be hard pressed to think of too many (if any) better pens at that price point.
Again, highly recommended.
