I didn't care much for my OHTO Dude until I tried a bunch pens from Wing Sung and Jinhao. OHTO is way better than any of those in my experience, and I appreciate the Dude more now. The other thing that really upped my appreciation was using an ink other than the supplied black cartridges. I cleaned and refilled with Diamine Blue-Black and it's like a whole new writing experience. I am now quite happy with the OHTO Dude as a 'no biggie if I lose it' daily writer.

There's a more positive (and more detailed) user review here:
http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/282528-ohto-dude-silver-in-the-raw/
Most of the complaints I see about this pen all tend to revolve around the nib. It seems quality control and consistency in that area isn't exactly OHTO's strong point, and it's somewhat of a lucky dip as to whether you get a smooth reliable writing nib or not.
Also check out the photo's in the review which show another potential issue some will have with this pen - the rather dopey name of this model is written clearly on the cap! I would have been more forgiving of the name if they hadn't felt the need to plaster it on the pen itself :)

The name is just printed on. You can scratch it off with a fingernail.
...and don't call me dude!
I just received my OHTO Dude order, attached the supplied cartridge, and the nib seemed to be skipping, working very dry. I took out a bottle of Monteverde ink and dipped the nib, and it started writing and drawing much more smoothly. So, I dumped the cartridge in the trash, and attached a standard converter and filled it with the Monteverde ink, and now it writes and draws just fine! These pens have a nice weight and I really like the design of the aluminum body, especially the deep violet color I ordered!

To those who were asking a while ago - the standard narrow opening converters fir the OHTO, but a few of them are a tight fit in the barrel, so I recommend checking a converter both for the fit in the feeder opening and in the barrel.
My pens arrived today, and credit where credit is due, Asendia handed off to Canada Post who made it on the estimated delivery date. One inked, nib a bit scratchy, but can likely be smoothed. Nice looking pens, comfortable to hold. Another good purchase from Massdrop.
These arrived today and so far I'm very pleased. There are a few tiny flaws in the finish that only a finicky person would even notice, but the feel and weight of the pen is very good and the nib is pleasantly smooth.
What kind of converter works best with these pens? I've tried a couple versions of international converters. The barrel of one was too thick to go into the barrel of the pen and the opening of another was too wide.

Probably the most standard of standard international converters would have to be the Schmidt K5 Converter, since many pen manufacturer's use rebranded Schimdt K5s as their own brand's standard converter.
I've seen at least one user report that says a K5 worked with their OHTO Dude.
@DSpaceNine - no surprise the Lamy Z26 didn't work since Lamy converters are proprietary and only intended to fit their own pens.

Jaggi,
Thank you. That sounds like the information we needed.

is the nib swappable?
P.ree
For anyone still interested in an answer to this:
" The nib and feed are standard friction-fit #5s, so can be easily replaced if you want something more exotic or a different size. "
http://www.fountainpennetwork.com/forum/topic/282528-ohto-dude-silver-in-the-raw/
is there a difference between the International short standard cartridges/converters and the international standard converters/cartridges as described in the other Ohto set?

All colors but the black are gone. :-(
These look nice, and I would jump on it if the Ohto Rook I have weren't the scratchiest nib I've ever written with. Is it the same nib?
Can any standard international converter fit with this pen?

Just a standard converter like this one: https://www.jetpens.com/Kaweco-Standard-Fountain-Pen-Converter-Gun-Metal/pd/10585
an an international converter should fit though.

Thank you, I'll give it a try! Can't beat that price either.
Forgive me for my ignorance, but how do I get the ink hooked up to the pen tip? I didn't get any instructions with my pens.

I got 2 of the Ohto fountain pens in a previous drop. One for myself and one for a friend. One of my friend's favorite pens. Still one of my favorite pens. I grab it when I need to quickly write something down, I know it starts up every time. I am thinking that drop was only Med nibs ? But.. maybe not. Great pens , good deal for 2 durable pens with shipping

I just got one of these from amazon for $14 all said and done (including shipping). This is not really a deal.
jakehawken
Depends on location. Amazon won't ship a lot of things to Australia, so for me and the rest of the world, a lot of these drops are great. Not everyone has access Amazon or prime, and shipping from Goulet or Jetpens?? Costs over $30us just for a pen to Australia .................
Mikiv
yeah i know right strayaaaaaaaaa and its aud down in melbourne the pens here will cost 20-30 dollars more than compared to online including shipping much sad

Thanks for your patience and expect an update from us on 1/29 or sooner if something comes up.
This is my first massdrop order. When should expect the shipment of I ordered on 1/16? Do we know yet? Sorry for my ignorance!
I wish Building Silver was in stock :c
Any chance of this drop coming back with the violet pen? These seem really nice, and I love the look, but it's the violet that got me to click in the first place.

I was in the last drop of this, too. I went with a black and a silver. I didn't flush them out, so I felt like they needed some breaking in time, but otherwise they write well and have a solid weight. The logo is nearly invsible on the black and is just printed on, so will either wear or off or if you're careful could be removed with light sandpaper or maybe even lots of fingernail work. I'm quite happy with them especially at the drop price.
Mine arrived a few weeks ago. One for myself and I gave the other to a friend. After an initial warm water flush both wrote well directly out of the box- Both are very smooth with good ink flow - not too wet or dry. Very happy with it. I use a standard converter with mine and it works well. My friend takes hers to work, and there is room in the barrel to carry a spare cartridge. I hope to see this drop again, these will make nice holiday gifts :)
