Pretty good value for its price point. Nice to have all 4 colors to keep
different graphite grades separate without having to switch leads. It comes
with an unmarked 3.5" lead that I find rather coarse, so I would recommend
discarding it and replacing it with a smoother drawing lead. Its diameter is
too wide to be used in a typical rotary tub lead pointer, so getting a reliable
lead pointer would be advisable. Its built-in pointer in the push button tends
to be out of alignment and yields an uneven point, so I would only used it in a
pinch. While it makes a nice addition to a leadholder collection, I prefer the
sturdier construction and precision grip of the metal clutch of the Mitsubishi
Uni leadholder or the Staedtler 925-25-20.

Very please with this purchase. Another reviewer commented on how they think the
lead is coarse but I find it to be very comfortable and easy to draw/write with.
The sharpener in the cap is a huge plus and works reasonably well. I really like
the rubber coating. I only wish that somehow an eraser could have been put on
top of the sharpener somehow. JUST BUT IT ALREADY!

Not bad - has a lightweight body with a comfortable rubber coating. The clip is
very stiff, so be careful if clipping this to an art project or other important
paper as it may leave a dent. The lead sharpener on the top is handy, but must
be used over a garbage can or it will make a good deal of dust. Overall a very
good value if you're just looking to try a lead holder.
