OHTO Co., Ltd. is a pen manufacturing company selling the "Ohto" brand.
In 1943, there were many manufacturing companies that invented the ballpoint pen,
but every single one of their products suffered defects in quality and ink.
In 1946, Ohto became famous as a pen manufacturer after they manufactured the world's
first ballpoint pen with a chrome ball, "Ohto Pencil." They fixed problems that other
companies were facing and this also happened to be Japan's first ballpoint pen.
By 1951, the company was known to have sold practical ballpoint pens ahead of their competition.
In recent years, there have been more and more idea products created.
This includes automatic feed mechanical pencils and wood-axis mechanical pencils that give you
a feeling of warmth, have all become a masterpiece in recent years.
Ohto adopted Kyocera's technology of using the ceramic ball and create the water-based ball-point pen,
and also, develop/sell their own product of an oil-based "Needle-Point" ball-point pen
that has an elongated cone-shaped tip. It should be noted that Ohto came up with these two terms to
form an image of a sharp edge with the Point (tip) of the pen being shaped like a Needle.
