Pencil came with lots of small little dots and scratches, but I believe this is normal. Pencil feels slightly cheap; metal parts seem flimsy as if they were plastic spray-painted with chrome color. Grip is fantastic! Perfect texture and feel for writing. Shaker mechanism and such are very great but the lead mechanism could have been more solid (a good standard for which I compare is P205).
Overall a tad expensive for what it is. But the grip is awesome.

Build quality is superb in fit and finish, metal parts throughout with no feel of cheapness or play. Barrel has a nice finish and the grip is the shinier but slightly firmer alpha-gel grip. Refills are the usual Jetstream: great inkflow, decently smooth. However I'd say that the pen is overpriced and not really worth it.

Everything you need in one durable, lightweight, standup box. At the price, it's a steal.

I carry it as an emergency backup kit to my regulars.

I purchased this fantastic looking pen case in camel brown. It is of utmost quality with excellent leather, soft lining, great zipper, and overall great attention to detail. It can hold about 4 medium sized pens; it wasn't designed to hold lots of writing implements. I put a Sharp Kerry Pencil, Lamy Studio fountain pen, G2 Limited gel pen, and a Dr. Grip Offroader snugly. However, I do expect a little more "something" for the price. Nonetheless it is an excellent, high quality pen case.

Terrible for $15. Absolute JUNK. The writing performance was scratchy at best and felt like rubbing a stick against gravel. Scritch scratch scritch scratch. This cannot compare to my TWSBI Diamond 530, My Lamy Safari/Al-Star, my Lamy 2000, MB 149, Pilot VP, Sheaffer PFM, Parker Sonnet, etc. in terms of... well everything. The pen feels cheap as the build construction and threading for barrel are plastic-y. It is easily dented and damaged and basically I expected a bit more for $15. You might think that the pens I compare it to are $40+/$120+ but at least they work it out for their price points in trim, looks, feel, and writing performance. I'd rather take a Pilot Varsity or some other disposable than this pile of pure crap. I have lost all my faith in Ohto.

Fountain pens are supposed to dry out when you leave them uncapped, it's the reason why caps were invented. The pen gets the job done but there is a certain... odor...

Verified Purchase
Pen does not write - may blame the packaging since there was none for this pen and so feed may be broken. Nib bends and breaks easily & pen seems to be built cheaply (even for $3). Cannot compare with Varsity.

I might have had just a bad unit, but

This pen LEAKS INK BADLY - ink seeps through the side of the nib as well as terrible nib creep near the breather-hole.

The nib is extremely scratchy - writing with it is torture.
