Overpriced junk. Its a nice pen, but the lead keeps breaking. I have two of
these in different colors and both are the same. The lead advances to far with
one click, and there is no way to fix this. If you want a Lamy pencil spend a
bit more and pick up the "Lamy - Scribble". The Scribble is awsome in everyway!

I bought this to match my Lamy fountain pen. I love the sleek look, the feel,
the sturdiness, the barrel size and strong clip. My dislikes are the cap, which
is tiny and lost easily, and the lead it comes with (it was very pale). I am
using it as an everyday pencil, so I don't have high standards for performance.
I don't care about replacing the lead, but I would like to see a redesign that
prevents you from losing that tiny cap.

Not impressed. I've had cheaper pencils that write better than this. It's just a
hype. I even used a better quality lead but still, there is this "scratchy" feel
to it when I write.

This pencil, while completely fun to look at and hold, is a bit of a mixed bag.
There is noticeable and bothersome wiggle room in the lead sleeve, such that
fine drawing becomes imprecise and mushy-feeling. I keep it loaded with 3B lead
for a lightweight, loose approach, and that seems to suit it well. Otherwise,
it's well made and comfortable. The advance mechanism is brass and has a
positive click, and the lead sleeve retracts for less stabbing. The eraser cap
feels loose, but is actually fairly securely retained. As a fun,
pocket-friendly, go-everywhere pencil, I'm not sure I'd buy this again. I'm
enjoying my Pilot DelFul a lot more in that role.

Bought this to match my new white Safari, and the pencil is fantastic! I like a
wider pencil; the slimmer pencils give me hand cramps. Some people are bugged by
the grip on the Safari and Al-Star fountain pens, but if it doesn't bother you
the pencil is great!
