Reviewer: Arale-chan: Your Friendly Neighborhood Akadot Staff

I have to agree with Carlos here. This pen will take a couple tries to get used to. First couple of times will make you wonder if it has ink in it or if it even works at all. But don't go scribbling like crazy on your nice paper ripping it to shreds with your pen because it does have a very delicate point to it. What you want to do after you follow the above directions of (snapping the ink cartridge into your pen until it makes a "click" sound or until it feels that you've pushed it in with all your Hulk powers), you want to tilt the pen at a diagonal direction to your paper. So the shiny metal part will be facing upwards and the black part of the pen will be facing down. As you place your pen at a diagonal making it so that your metal part of the pen is slightly bent at the tip of contact with your paper, you basically need to wait patiently until your ink gradually comes out. Then slowly move your pen around the paper to get the feel of the ink flowing out of your pen. Once you get the hang of it, you'll be on your way. Cheers. (^_^)

This is a good little pen for beginners, or those who are confused/fed up with buying different dip pen nibs. To Mara: On the thin end of the cartridge, you can see a little ball shaped 'plug' - this keeps the ink inside the cartridge until it is punctured by a small 'pokey' bit in the bottom half of the pen. Push the cartridge hard into the bottom part of the pen until there is a 'click' (cartridge being punctured, the ball/plug goes back into the cartridge). Give the ink a few minutes to flow into the nib, and start practising on scrap paper.

Product ID: #IC-tachisg
$6.50
Quantity:

* Fine Point

* 0.2mm - 0.5mm depending on pressure applied (line thickness)

* How to replace a Tachikawa Pen Refill Cartridge

Step 1: First unscrew the bottom half of the pen at the indicated "Open" section of the pen.

Step 2: After the bottom part of the pen is taken off, you will see that the small clear container will be empty. Gently tug at the container until it comes off. [Note: When you do this you may want to place a tissue or rag beneath the pen that you are holding to avoid any excessive ink dripping down.)

Step 3: Then you can just simply insert the new refill cartridge into the small extended point until you hear a "click" and of course until you cannot push it in any further.

Step 4: Lastly, screw back the bottom half of the pen again as you did in the beginning. To make sure your pen works, dab the pen at a blank piece of paper until ink comes out.
