, February 1, 2014
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.
