Dude Roller Ball Pen

Dude Roller Ball Pen


Regular price $18.00 Sale

Chunky yet comfortable, OHTO's rollerball is an all metal pen that features a steel pocket clip and an aluminum hexagonal barrel. A black grip on the barrel allows for leisurely and extended use, where the cap fits perfectly on the other end. The ceramic rollerball has a smooth finish, and the refill is available in 0.5 mm (coming soon). 

1/2" x 5.5"


Established in Tokyo in 1929, OHTO has been making innovations to both pens and inks ever since. When they made the first Made in Japan ballpoint pen in 1949 it used a chrome ball. Years of research led them to a resin polyamide ball and many years of experiments after that the ceramic roller pen was introduced. In 1963, they developed the world’s first water based ballpoint pen, fade resistant ink came, then waterproof ink, soft ink and Cera-Gel.
