  Thumbs down. Get a Tasche,..., October 27, 2013
Thumbs down. Get a Tasche, or a Kaweco Sport.
I have two Ohto Tasches and after some fiddling got both to write OK (see my review for the Tasche). Not so for the Rook. I couldn't get mine to write well to save my life. Strange, because it looks like the same nib as the Tasche. To add insult to injury, the cap won't post reliably - keeps falling off - and the inner ring fell out. A dab of Superglue sorted out the inner ring, but the thing still won't write well. After trying the lousy Ohto ink and a cartridge of Pelikan 4001 I gave up. You really do get what you pay for.
My advice, pass on this dog. Buy a Tasche and tweak it to write well. Or, maybe you'd rather just take a new pen out of the box and write with it, no fiddling around. In that case spend a few dollars more and get a Kaweco Sport. My Sport wrote beautifully right out of the box. I'm done with Ohto.
