Awesome ruler. Very useful....
January 19, 2015
Awesome ruler. Very useful. I like that we are not bothered with ancient measures of inches. Midori does it again.

My favorite nib. I've tried all the Gs, maru, speedball etc but nibs from Brause are the best.

Much darker ink then...
June 22, 2013
Verified Purchase
Much darker ink then that used in Pentel Pocket brush pen and is waterproof. I use it as a refill for regular Pentel (standard or sometimes called Pentel color brush pen) Superfine brush pen or regular brush pen. Ink that comes with those pens is not waterproof. It is still good (especially if want watercolor effect) but if need waterproof and super dark ink then this is it.

Dark: yes, very (much darker than used in Pentel Pocket brush refills)
Waterproof: yes

One of the best papers...
February 27, 2013
One of the best papers for fountain pens if not the best (can be used with other pens too) available. I also use it to sketch and draw on this paper. Very smooth, perfect. Included in each pad is a lined sheet of paper which can be placed behind the blank white sheet as a guideline if want to write neat or cannot control a straight line.

Top paper.

Easily best color lead...
July 16, 2012
Easily best color lead (0.5mm) available. Uni ball and Pilot eno color leads disappear from aper's surface after some time while this lead still stays on paper visible in my case forever. Since color leads are not really graphite, they are more fragile but I never have problem with them as they are not designed for pressing hard on paper anyway but light touch is needed and let out only 1mm of it through the pencil tip.

People having trouble with 0.5mm color leads ought use 2mm color leads from Staedtler.

Expensive but 5 stars.

Awesome. Update review....
July 15, 2012
Awesome.
Update review. Ha ha, now that I've figured out the ferule and the eraser I actually would not change anything about it. It's perfect and unique. What helps is replaceble erasers which is nice to have.

5 stars.

Top pencil. Great wood...
July 15, 2012
Top pencil. Great wood that sharpens beautifully and the graphite is top notch that hold the point nicely. Nice grey paint also. Writing or drawing with this pencil reminds me of Hi-Uni F grade pencil. Excellent for writing or drawing.

One thing I do not like is the ferule and flat eraser which results in pencil being 20cm long. I would preferred a standard size of about 17cm long without eraser or with round standard eraser as this ferule and eraser that sticks out sideways kind of creates some extra weight and gets in my way.

My favorite pencil ever....
May 26, 2012
My favorite pencil ever. I've used (as I like pencils) probably most mechanical (and wooden) pencils available mostly from Germany and Japan, two countries that produce quality products, costing from few dollars to over $50 each but, I always come back to this classic pencil.

It just becomes part of my hand with its lightness and shape, I can use it all day while most other pencils I either get uncomfortable or bored after some time.

I mostly use 0.3mm and 0.7mm so I can have two different thickness in lines (0.5 and 0.7 is too close for me) but 0.5 and 0.9mm can be used for this purpose too. 0.3mm pencil (brown barrel) is currently not distributed by Pentel USA but is by web shops, especially if you order from Europe or Asia. eg, pixiemall (Korea) or stationeryart from Hong Kong and many Japanese sites. 0.3 (p203) is probably the best 0.3mm pencil ever made. I'm surprised JetPens does not carry it yet.

Excellent. I've used...

Excellent. I've used these before and am glad JP has them now. Could be the best liners out there. Remind me of Rapidograph without the need to refill and fuss with fragile tips that Rapidograph from Rotring or Koh i Noor has OR with faber tips that wear out after a while and produce different line thickness.

Regarding tip sizes, as with all manufacturers the tip size (eg 005 = 0.3mm not 005 mm) is not universal but company assigned.
So, as per some Japanese web sites, Ohto Graphic liners are as follows:

005 = 0.3 mm
01 = 0.4 mm
02 = 0.5 mm
03 = 0.7 mm
05 = 1 mm
1 = ? (could not find this one)
