See my other review for the Ohto Tasche Needle Ballpoint Pen. Again, Ohto "outdid" them on this one. The point for the pencil is positioned far enough in so I don't feel like I'm writing with a foot of metal out in front of my fingers, but yet the pipe that carries the lead is long enough for any drafting or mechanical engineering applications.

The photographs do not show the location of the eraser, but it is underneath the silver cap which holds that black rubber O-Ring. When you twist off the cap you can easily tell by "feel" alone that the threads were machined properly; there's no "scratchy" grinding.

Another outstanding feature is when you press the cap to advance lead. You get just the right amount. You don't get 2mm of lead, which will inevitably break; rather, your supplied with about .75 to 1mm of lead. . . that's PERFECT.

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.

See my other review for the Ohto Tasche Needle Ballpoint Pen. Again, Ohto "outdid themselves" on this one. The point for the pencil is positioned far enough in so I don't feel like I'm writing with a foot of metal out in front of my fingers, but yet the pipe that carries the lead is long enough for any drafting or precision drawing applications.

The photographs do not show the location of the eraser, but it is underneath the silver cap which holds that black rubber O-Ring. When you twist off the cap you can easily tell by "feel" alone that the threads were machined properly; there's no "scratchy" grinding. I know that probably sounds "geeky", but this shows quality and attention to detail in my opinion.

Another outstanding feature is when you press the cap to advance lead. You get just the right amount. You don't get 2mm of lead, which will inevitably break; rather, your supplied with about .75 to 1mm of lead. . . that's PERFECT.

Jet Pens . . . keep up the good work!

Okay, I very rarely write reviews, but this pen prompted me to dust off my creative writing intuition. Also, let's say I am a pen aficionado. I own Mont Blanc (several), Cartier (well over $1000.00), 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 fragile or doesn't have quality appointments, and the refills are horrible . . . just to name a few pet peeves.

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. No cap flopping around or falling off because of a poor pressure fit. The finish is excellent and the screw threads remind me of precision machinery. Ohto thought the Tasche line through before breaking out the metal, lathes, and thread taps.
