I own a lot of fountain pens, including a Parker Centennial Duofold two a few 1980's era Rotrings, a Conklin, and an inexpensive Lamy. The Ohto Dude was a really great surprise. It always writes, even if it has been capped for three weeks. It is perfectly balanced in my hand. I never find ink on my hands after I have handled it. The body is tough— I am not gentle with $25 pens, but this one still looks like it is out of the box. This is my go to, everyday, no big deal if I lose it, always reliable pen. I use bottled ink. My grandkids will have— and use— this pen if I do not lose it and the culture has not completely lost the satisfying feel of a nib traveling down a piece of paper turning thoughts into memories.
