I have used this pencil...
, October 14, 2011
I have used this pencil for a couple of months. It is utterly unreliable,
requiring constant disassembly to get the lead to advance. Every time I use it
it jams, and it will not feed lead after only a few clicks. Using different
leads, and cleaning out the mechanism, has not helped. It looks so nice, but it
is completely useless for writing. Move along; there is nothing to see here.

I'd just like to re-review this item.
As I said in the prior rating:
It is a beautiful pencil, loose design, and squeaky click mechanism.
Now after having using pencil for a more extensive period:
If we were rating on beauty only- this pencil would receive a 5-Star
If it were rated overall- it would be my new score: 3 stars.
The top half of the pencil (above the metal band in the center) rotates.
Initially I enjoyed rotating it, but now it simply squeaks and it really irks
The click mechanism was initially reviewed as loose, and squeaky and I didn't
mind. Now it bothers the hell out of me and feels like a weak pencil.
Now the biggest complaints:
The grip is just simply too much form, and no function. It's smooth metal, with
no rivets or anything. No grip at all. It becomes uncomfortable after a short
period of time, and it feels too thick compared to my normal preference to
really enjoy. It feels... unnatural.
The feel of the writing just feels really... off. I can't explain. It feels like
I'm hardly applying any pressure on the paper and my writing just looks a lot
lighter/more faded than normal. From further examination, I've concluded it's
the length of the tip of the pencil; it's simply not long enough and my angle of
writing had become too high and the lead was not applying enough pressure.
Don't buy a pencil based on beauty alone. This was simply not the pencil for me.

After buying this pencil, I'm still searching for just the right mini pencil.
One reviewer pointed it out, but I somehow missed this: You have to unscrew the
ERASER cap to use the eraser. So if you're writing, make a mistake, and need to
erase, you have to first pull the cap off the back of the pencil, AND THEN
unscrew the eraser cap. Like I said - I'm still searching. It is beautiful

Very nice pencil. Beautiful, sleek, (maybe minimal?) design.
It is a puny pencil when the cap is on, but average length when in use.
The mechanism may be a hit or miss with some users.
The bodies of the pencil (separated by the metal band in the center) are able to
be spun, so it's not a solid design as you may expect. It's 'loose' as the other
reviewer described, but I personally just enjoy spinning the pencil during class
lectures to pass the time.
The eraser is concealed by a screw-on cap, and will be time consuming whenever
an eraser is needed. I use a whole separate click eraser when needed, so it
renders the con void (for me), and the flat top just looks very appealing.
The lead advance mechanism has a soft click, and when in use, the cap of the
pencil does not securely 'click on' like how it does when used to conceal the
tip. But that is unimportant, as it's still securely capped nonetheless.
Nit-picking aside, it's an amazing pencil.
