Beautiful pencil. I definitely appreciate the retractable tip. Somehow I wish it had a bit more heft to it though. It almost feels too light in my hand. Other than that small thing though, I love it.

I purchased five of these along with five of the A.G hex ballpoints. I know, I went a little goofy but I love A.G's pens and pencils. This pencil is simply fantastic, it feels wonderful in the hand. Importantly it has a retractable sleeve so you don't damage your shirt, the pencil, or your attache. The black especially looks so sleek, and made my interest in the drafting pencils dissipate quickly. If you are in the market for a nice mechanical pencil I strongly recommend the A.G Spalding line.

This is a great mechanical pencil. The tip fully recedes into the body, which means you can carry it in your pocket without fear of puncturing your thigh when you sit down, and the body is durable enough to survive with little damage or wear in my case where it was rubbing up against my favorite knurled mechanical pencils (which can destroy the finish on anything). This pencil is about an inch shorter than anything else I own (so not for big hands), but the front end is nicely weighted to prevent fatigue.

The only reason I am giving this four stars instead of five is due to the very smooth grip that is very hard to hold continuously for long periods of time, and the weird texture change from the black barrel to the silver tip, which is (at least on mine) bumpy rather than smooth.

Summary: excellent if you want a lighter mechanical pencil for pocket carry and hate textured grips.

I wanted a good mechanical pencil and I lust over A.G. Spalding products. So this was a perfect choice. It has a sleek, impressive feel.

One caution to perspective buyers - in one image on this page, the pencil is resting on a case. This is not included, so don't be disappointed.
