  1. See what I did there with the topic title? (...might be time to cut back on the coffee...) Seriously though, anyone have advice on this? Im on a economical pen kick to figure out grip size/type before going all in on in on a high end pen. I tried my standard international converter, but its wobbly. If the pen gets jarred or if I drop it, Im pretty sure Ill make like a squid and ink everywhere. Are there other standard international converters? Am I missing something? Thanks!! N
  2. I really like the looks of the Ohto Dude in purple, and it is very inexpensive on JetPens. Have any of you used it? How does it compare to the other popular starter pens like the Lamy and Pilot Metropolitan? (I wish Goulet Pens carried this brand, as I have learned a lot from his videos. I do plan on getting my ink from him, at least).

    Ohto Tasche Problems

    Hi everyone, This is my first post so I'm not too sure if this is the correct place to troubleshoot about my pen. Basically my 3rd Fountain pen - the OHTO Tasche isn't writing properly. It's brand new and opened the package to use it just yesterday. I've tried everything and found out that the nib and feeder alignment is off. Trouble is; I can't actually take out the nib and feeder. It's far too hard and all I'm getting is blisters and bruised thumbs. Any help would be fantastic. Once again my apologies if this isn't the right forum section.
  4. Anyone ever heard of the Japanese writing instrument brand OHTO? They market mostly to Japan customers. I've never seen them for sale in the USA. I recently stumbled across a ballpoint and mechanical pencil set made of an aluminum alloy. Very slim, as aptly named "Mine Slim." And very light. But the machining and fitment is excellent. The mechanical pencil can post and still perform lead advance action. The "ceramic ballpoint" acts like a roller ball. Nice ink flow with little pressure. I got this set as part of a pen lot purchase... with no interest in these at all. I was going to giv
  5. I'm trying to accumulate some nicer (but not expensive) bodies to hold my Pilot G-2 refills. Unfortunately, the first one came today and it doesn't quite fit, so I'm trying to determine if it can be hacked or if I need to send it back. I thought I'd ask for insight from those more experienced than I. The pen is an OHTO Words. It takes a refill that's almost identical to the G-2 refill, but the "almost" is causing an issue. There's something about the tip that isn't quite fitting through the hole, and I don't know if maybe I can drill it out? When I put the original refill (that the pen
  6. Hi, has anyone tried different nibs on the Ohto Tasche pens? I figure the Rook is the same pen basically. I have somewhat succesfully used a Kaweco sport nib in it, but it was too wet, and the Tasche nib didn't fit the Kaweco pen at all, so I guess the compatibility is not quite perfect with the Tasche feed. Someone suggested the TWSBI mini nib, and a couple of others I have not been able to locate so far. (I posted a somewhat similar topic elsewhere, but it didn't get much traction, so I figure maybe I posted it in the wrong forum, trying a different angle as well).
  7. Hello. In looking at my Ohto Tasche under magnification, I discovered the number 16 on the underside of the nib. Does anyone know whether this number have any significance, like nib type or anything like that? Being able to get a better nib for this pen from some third party would be really neat, that's why I am asking. Thanks for listening.
  8. My first review, OHTO Tasche on Rhodia Dotpad. Forgive my handwriting, I'm a left hander who is trying to improve.
  9. Time for a second stab at a review. This time I'd like to draw attention to what I think is an inexpensive, almost criminally unknown pen - the Ohto Dude in silver. I'm going to sum up my review right now: If you like the look of the Kaweco Al-Sport with the Raw Aluminum finish but wanted a full size pen, take a serious look at the Dude. It's bloody gorgeous. First Impressions: 10 The pen came in a simple plastic sleeve with two international short ink cartridges, one blue, one black. The pen fits international standard converters but does not come with one. My reliable Schmidt K5 con
