I bought this pencil a couple of months ago and have enjoyed using it. The heft
is nice, the look good, and so far I have been pleased with its performance. I
ordered Prismacolor turquoise-colored and kaweco red leads to use with it since
I use it for grading.
A reviewer of a different color version of this pencil noted that the metal tip
unscrewed easily. I noted one time so far where I had to tighten the tip so I
haven't really seen that as an issue. However, I have noted that the mechanism
seems to have a little give internally and the pencil rattles a little. This
appears to be more of a "cosmetic" issue than a performance concern.
Overall, this is a comfortable and fun lead-holder to use and worth the price.
I just wish that more colored leads that were darker in color were available.
