  This clutch pencil is..., June 14, 2014
This clutch pencil is awesome! The Sketch Up Softfeeling 5.6 mm Clutch Lead Holder feels quite solid and substantial in the hand thanks to its metal interior mechanism that screws securely into its outer body. Its wide yellow plastic cylindrical barrel rubberized with a matte black coating feels quite comfortable to the touch. It features a convenient lead pointer built-in its push button that screws at the top, and it can quickly produce a short taper point similar to what you can accomplish with a standard pencil sharpener or an E+M Cube lead pointer. It comes loaded with a 5B graphite lead, and there are also colored refills available for it. For further refill options, you can even load it with Cretacolor drawing leads that include oil sanguine and nero leads that given their oil component are pretty smudge-resistant and do not require fixing to stay put. Having a wider barrel makes this clutch pencil a pretty ergonomic choice for live caricature events and drawing on a easel. Saves you the trouble of having to widen a narrow leadholder barrel with tennis wrap. Sleek looking tool that effortlessly becomes an extension of your hand for sketching and shading freely. Particularly well suited for working on larger scale formats. Its compact size make it quite portable and comfortable to carry around all day in your pant pockets. Have been taking it with me quite often to sketch and doodle on the go, and have grown quite fond of it.
