I really enjoy using this pen. This is something every inker should have. While the tip doesn't flex quite as much as a regular nib, that's a small price to pay for the convenience of not having to re-dip the tip every few seconds.

I bought both the School (Extra fine point) and the School G (Fine point) and the warnings here about giving the ink a chance to flow are true. The first 3 or 4 times I used the Fine point pen I was convinced I wasted money on it. The line was inconsistant, laying down no ink for while, then I would change the angle a bit to get more ink to flow. The bright side is that it never let the ink blot and run puddles on the page. Once the ink gets going it's really nice. Other countries & brands claim a fine point on their metal nib cartridge pens but the School Extra fine is amazingly fine for a non-dip pen. You just have to work at it for a while. As for connecting the cartridge for the 1st time after you push the cart into the pointed "filler" piece it does seem to have a small gap between the pen (where the pen's filler pokes into the ink cart.) and the ink cartridge itself. I don't think there is a cover or cap that must be removed from the ink cart. But I cannot seen any reason to remove the cart's darker-colored top piece. It may just make a huge mess.

* 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.
