Quite a nice original...

Quite a nice original addition to a 2 mm leadholder collection. Both the push advance wooden leadholder and its leadpointer are unique looking and function reasonably well. Personally I found the section where the conical metal tip and the hexagonal barrel meet to be a bit uncomfortable, for the wooden corners stick a bit beyond the metal piece. Slipping a plastic pencil grip over the area easily solves that problem. There was a slight rattling of the interior lead chamber when shaking this pencil. I tried taking it apart to see if I could tighten it, but the metal components just kept rotating within its wooden sheath. If you are a fan of this type of sketching tool, it is certainly worth a try and getting on its looks alone.

Feels almost like a regular wooden pencil, but refillable. Pencil itself works well, the sharpener not so much. Recommend buying a separate sharpener.

Looks great and feels great to hold but the cap makes an annoying rattle, so I don´t use this beauty at all. It´s the solid Mars Technico that takes all the stars from this one.

A very nice addition to my sketch set! This is my first lead holder, as opposed to regular mechanical pencils one finds in any ol' department store. It's very much like a traditional wood-encased pencil in length and appearance, but heavier due to the mechanism inside. But the weight is very nice and solid, without being too much for the hand. I would say that the 2mm lead is the same as wood-encased pencil lead too, so I like to think of it as a refillable classic, haha. The hexagonal sides are wide enough to prevent rolling, as well. I just got this today and already love it! (Now, if only there was a shorter version for putting in my travel kit..)

As for the sharpener, I find it brings the lead to a sharp enough point, but at a shorter length than I would prefer. That is to say, you'll be re-sharpening after only a short while. I do like that I can reuse the graphite shavings for other art applications as well, such as smudge or brush work. Or, if you sharpened enough lead, to coat a lever-fill fountain pen ink sac during repair work!
