Product Description
Germany’s Black Forest is known not only for its enchanting landscapes but also for its rich history of silver and gold mining. So it comes as little surprise that Otto Hutt chose Pforzheim, just outside the Black Forest, to establish himself as a purveyor of fine silver writing instruments Read More

I really, really want to love this pen. It looks great. The nib is smooth and flows great. It writes beautifully and has the looks to match. Substantial in the hand, well balanced posted or not, and just overall a pleasure to write with. But. There are some serious quality control issues with this pen, at least the one that I received. Three times, the pen clip broke off from the cap. The barrel detached from the nib assembly two times. The metal finish on the cap began flaking off the clip and cap within two week of receiving the pen. This pen has spent a substantial amount of time in the mail for repairs. Not the majority of the time I've owned it, probably not even 1/4 of the amount of time I've owned it, but enough to be annoying. To be fair, the Otto Hutt distributor in the US that deals with warranty repairs has been great. They respond to emails in a timely fashion, and they have never turned down a warranty repair request. But, shipping for repairs isn't free, and for a "premium" pen, that is a bit irritating. More irritating is the fact that I have to send this pen in for warranty repairs at all. Once is an irritation, three times is a disappointment. Ultimately, it's the fragility of this pen that prevents me from a) using it as a daily driver and b) giving this pen the 5 star rating it deserves. From a purely writing perspective, this pen is fantastic. From a design perspective it's a joy to look at. But man, the quality control issues really detract from what is otherwise a fantastic pen.
