I am a sucker for really fine leads/nibs when it comes to pens and pencils. But at the same time, I love the other end of the spectrum- super large tips! I absolutely love the 5.5 mm lead and I am completely astonished at the precision that it offers. I also bought the small cube sharpener, and I am very glad that I did so! I have already had several people tell me that they want one and they have never seen lead so large. They are just as shocked with the precision of the writing. I'd assume that it is because you can clearly see the entire utensil area that you are using. The length of this holder is fantastic! It is very comfortable to use and I wouldn't change a thing!

I've been practicing gesture drawing and one of my main issues is that I tighten up and always tend to focus on detail instead of the basic lines that make up a gesture. So, I wanted to find something that wrote a bold line, limiting my natural urge to focus on detail, wasn't too expensive, and wasn't as messy as charcoal.

After browsing through the JetPens catalog for a few minutes I discovered this guy, and I'm so glad I did! It met my needs perfectly. It's got a big fat lead that you can sharpen to a point for detail, or in my case, just wear it down and you end up with a thick, bold line perfect for gesture drawing.

The clutch itself is solidly built, no rattling noises or loose parts. It feels great in my hands, the wood provides a nice grip, and it's got a nice weight to it. I had an internal battle about whether to buy the aluminum or wooden clutch, but I definitely feel I made the right decision in going with the wooden one. There's just something so warm and cozy about holding this pencil that I pretty much carry it everywhere.

I highly recommend this product for gesture drawing, and to help you loosen up when sketching. I do regret not purchasing a softer lead to go along with this guy. The HB lead that comes provided is fine, but I like a darker line.
