This pencil is very well...

This pencil is very well balanced, and the body fits very well (and quite naturally) into my hand. I made sure to wait a couple of months before writing this review, and the pencil has stood up very well to every day use, with only a few minor dings and scratches. Overall, I would highly recommend this as an everyday use pencil that easily stands against a lot of use.

This is a great pencil. It looks great and is very reliable. My only criticism is the top cap, which does come off quite easily, and is not difficult to misplace. The all black design is all class.

Just recently received one of these in my last order. I have had some issues with past mechanical pencils I have tried, but this one seems to be one of the best I have seen in a long time. Some of the other reviews (on the other colors) indicated that the eraser cap feels a bit loose, which it is able to freely spin however it has a resounding snap as it clicks on to the back of the pen and doesn't come off very easily. The lead advancing mechanism is well made and the grip is comfortable. Finally I really like the size and overall feel of this pen. Awesome buy if you need a decent mechanical pencil that won't have any issues.

The pencil seems to be of high quality, and I like the clean, basic look. As noted by other reviewers, however, the cap that fits over the eraser doesn't fit tightly. It doesn't seem like it would fall off easily, but the loose fit is inconsistent with the quality feel of the pencil.

I have found, also, that the grip forces my fingers into a grip position that is not comfortable for me.

I bought this for a gift and inspected it before giving it away. Having the companion Charcoal Safari Fountain Pen the two are a perfect pair. I'm concerned that the eraser cap might become loose and eventually fall of and get lost. So far the owner has no complaints. Good for people who like a larger diameter MP than the drafting styles of Alvin, Rotring, etc.
