I'd just like to re-review...

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.
