  The pen ink is what you'd..., November 1, 2011
The pen ink is what you'd expect from OHTO's ceramic roller, very smooth and flows very well. The colours and materials used gives the pen a very distinct and elegant feel, making you and your pen the target of envy. While pen retains its visual looks, it is slightly longer than the original Tasche bodies, also note that ceramic roller ink tube is not backwards compatible with the original Tasche Needle Point Pen body as the ceramic roller ink is just a tad bit longer.

A big complaint about the new Tasche bodies is how they are manufactured. Due to the simplification of the body and sole use of aluminum as the only materials make it very fragile and prone to cracks and dents. I received several of these new Tasche bodies to test, and found that the weakest part of the pen is the threading of the 2 halves of the body. I had one of the bodies crack in half where the threading is making the pen irreparable, although you can use the ceramic roller tube on its own =p. A way to preserve the life span of the body is to be gentle when recapping the cap on the body, make sure not to apply too much pressure to bend the pen body.
