I like the Bauhaus Style in pens, so I bought a pen from Otto Hutt. It is their Design 04 in white guilloché.

Details of my review see here: https://mkepens.blog...haus-style.html

The Otto Hutt Design 04 with two toned steel nib is one of the most durable, elegant pens I own.  The only issue I have had with one of them is the clip coming loose at its base.  I personally have two of the black guilloche that I got over the years from Levenger and love them.  The sterling silver band is a nice touch.  The cartridge converters are interchangeable with GrafvFC, which leads me to believe they are the OEM.  Too bad one was stolen from me on a recent trip - sometimes I think people know I collect pens and are following me :)Here's a previous post on the 04:

Very nice looking pens.


German vintage '50-70 semi-flex stubs and those in oblique give the real thing in On Demand line variation. Modern Oblique is a waste of money for a shadow of line variation. Being too lazy to Hunt for affordable vintage oblique pens, lets you 'hunt' for line variation instead of having it.

I own two different Design 04 both with gold fine nib.

The Wirte nice of different papers - Lamy Notebook, Leuchtturm Notebooks and normal copy/office paper.

The Design 04 is a bit on the slim side, Similar to a Montblanc 144 or Lamy Scala/Safari, Full metal grip section with hour shaped class design. The grip section is very long and as the rest of the cap and end piece, can be a fingerprint magnet.

What I not like is the twist on cap -it needs 3 and of a bit turn to unscrew the cap, not very user friendly for a daily writer.

Very nice pen, I like the design, it looks a bit like a GvFC Classic but with a more rigorous design, stripped of it's "imperial" look...

Worth checking out, thank you for showing us

 

PS curious on the 07 design too...

That's true. 3 turns to open.

I overcome the "issue" with the following method. I keep the cap in my hand. When I am not writing, I put the pen into the cap and turn it a little bit, just enough to not fall out again. Only when I am not writing for a longer time, I fully close it. That does it for me.

 

Btw., Design 06 just needs a half-turn and Design 07 a full turn to fully release or close the pens.

The turns do not bother me usually, I do as you mentioned with pens that have more turns, I just cap it with half turn, just enough so that ink does not dry too fast. The 04 guilloché "princess" in silver looks very nice. Is the nib performance up to the pen's quality looks?

The 06 is not for me, the step down barrel to section is too pronounced for my fingers...

The step down of the Design06 is less than 1 mm. That bothers you?

Yes, I the same now. Just a twist to secure the cap enough.

I don't know, it looks more in pictures, and especially it looks sharp.

I would need to try. I hold my pens quite far up, which means my fingers are usually smack on the step...

If the section is very long it usually does not bother, on shorter sections it can be a problem.

A test would be resolutive.

I do like the looks (the 07 even more...)

the 07 is a beauty, although much more expensive...

the 04 princess might be right, step down but long section

Actually, the edge doesn't feel sharp and bothering in Design 06.

 

Here a comparison view of Design 04 and 06. I am still thinking about the two sterling silver Design 04 pens.

I haven’t considered the 06 or 07 design because of the limitations design options.

I am not a fan of plain design pens.

The 04 “Scribble” was a bit of a disappointment as the website indicated the color is more a grey which, in my eyes matches the pen very well. The pen arrived in a pure white, same as the other white pens of that design.

 

There are also some slight design changes, the nib has o | h instead of the half nib so does the pen cap. The pen cap logo is laser etched like the serial number.
