wasn't sure how this particular pencil would work out, but it's great.
Interesting grip, triangular, provides a comfortable hold. there are no grooves
or a knurled grip, or anything that would prevent slippage, but i have not had
any issues with that.
Keep in mind though that it is plastic and if your hand sweats a lot, then this
might not be the best choice. that said, the plastic does not feel cheap in any
way. there is one seam going down the side where the piece was molded together,
but is very smooth. sliding sleeve is a plus, although i have noticed from time
to time that the sleeve doesn't extend completely, but that has not affected
the eraser is small, as are most mechanical pencil erasers, and it's a little
tricky to take out, I have to get a firm grip on the eraser itself just to pull
it out. Makes me wonder how tough it would be to remove with a worn down eraser.
on the plus side though, at least it's not going to slide out on its own.
Overall it's a nice pencil. With assorted colors and a really nice finish, it
makes it a nice addition to any collection, or artist tool
