This pencil works great....

This pencil works great. I love the fact that the metal sleeve for the lead retracts into the barrel for travel. The grip helps keep my hand from tiring and works great for even MY strange way of holding a pencil. About the only thing I would trade it for is if they made the Kaweco AL Sports in 0.5mm.

I was concerned about the grip as I had seen some negative comments about it, but it feels comfortable enough in my hand.
I have pretty big hands and these suit me quite well. Mind you, the entire barrel is plastic so you shouldn't expect a superior grip comfort, just be reasonable.
The colour looked the same as displayed in the picture and I'm overall satisfied with the product.

After purchasing a Pilot 20 this pencil has become an afterthought. Also I'm using the Pilot lead in this now, since the lead that came with it has become an afterthought. Yet, it has it's place— especially around salt water and industrial environments, just don't lose the cap!

I retract my last statement because I would buy another Lamy [ABS] pen due to its "durability". These pencils can take a beating— and the retractable tip is genius. You can clear the lead by breaking off the lead tip via the cuts in the cap. Remove the cap, put the lead in the hole— snaps off, flush. Also, the rubber ring on the cap keeps the pen from sliding, firmly on a desk. Great engineering.

The pencil has great feel and execution but there are seems [ridges] along both sides of the body due to inferior molding which is a major disappointment. Both, my Safari [yellow] Rollerball and Mechanical Pencil show seems, but the pencil [also yellow] being much worse, to the point of cutting/catching into my hand and fingers. I like the feel and ergonomic design of these LAMY pens— they are top shelf, but the pretty die-cut box it arrives in does not make up for the lack of detail [mold flashing] along the body. It's unacceptable at this price point and should be taken up with the manufacturer, under advisement.
