So very mixed... Everything...
July 29, 2011
So very mixed... Everything about this pencil is great, except for the pencil
itself. The design, the look, the features, the ability to customize are all
great. The quality of the pencil itself however is extremely low for a pencil
at this price point. When you advance the lead or remove the eraser cover it
seems like the internal mechanisms are loose and moving around inside. The
internal pipe seems like a piece of plastic they took out of a cheap pencil &
put in this expensive one. I must admit I really like the grip, and I do like
the ability to change the guide pipe length. Plus the fact that the pencil
comes in 0.4mm is a definite plus.
I think I would hate to be a pencil designer for Ohto- this is a fantastically
designed pencil that does not live up to its potential because of poor quality
construction. I have pencils that cost much much less that are better made.
There is a lot that I really like about this pencil, and reading reviews from a
couple years ago people rave about it, but the quality of the pencil I recently
purchased does not justify the premium price.
