The sandblasted velvet-finished stainless steel underlines the high quality of this elegant piece.

The picture looks nice,...

The picture looks nice, but it's deceiving. The barrel has a duller finish in person than the picture makes it seem. It has a semi-reflective finish to it that doesn't match well with the chrome tip, clip and cap.

When holding the pencil, it's lightweight and most of it is distributed toward the gripping area of the barrel. The slightest movement causes the mechanism inside the barrel to jostle around and make noise. The jostling becomes worse when writing which sometimes causes the tip to slowly unscrew itself and need to be tightened.

Writing isn't a pleasant experience. The grip-slits at the end of the barrel feel funny and don't provide any notable grip. The slits are even uncomfortable at times. Also, the barrel is so thin that gripping the pencil causes the barrel to buckle, which only exaggerates the impression of poor quality and craftsmanship. Clicking the pencil is very unsatisfying. The resistance is low and spongy, the click is weak and the mechanism isn't properly fitted into the barrel, which is related to the jostling problem.

On a positive note, the size of the barrel and the length of the pencil are both nice. Also, visibility while writing is clear.

Overall, I don't like this pencil. It's clunky and feels like a cheap toy. For a significantly lower price, I'd be fine with it, but there are too many quality pencils out there for less to justify the existence of this one.

The pen is well weighted in my hand - feels good. I'd like a bigger eraser.
The pen's lead well, seems to hold very few leads.

This pencil has a more troublesome clutch and feed mechanism than any I've ever owned. Save your money for something more reliable and less beautiful. Lamy Econ looks great in a drawer, where it will remain due to bad performance. Worst of all the Lamy products I own, so I regret writing this review as much as the 29.00 it cost.

Very sturdy and nicely weighted. It's a good value.
