This is a useful pencil for annotating books for researchers. The
twist-to-advance mechanism works fine (occasionally makes a little "twang"
noise, but it's very solidly held in place), but it means it can only hold a
single lead at once. The leads for the Autopoint pencils are very short, and
you'll need to purchase replacements in relatively short order--especially
because the red lead can be quite brittle.
