The only complaint I have about this pencil is when the cap is posted, it is
able to wiggle around as you write. Actually, the whole top half of the pencil
rotates, not just the silver part that you take off to put in new lead. Other
than that, this pencil is great, and people always comment on it.

The build quality is fantastic, It is what you would expect from the Tasche line
if you own one of them. Very sleek and elegant and make good use of a all
aluminum body. The body width is very standard to many plastic bodied pencils on
the market with a hidden eraser at the top hidden by the rubber grommet cap.
The way the pencil is designed feels slightly odd and maybe uncomfortable for
those who use the thumb to press the cap mechanism. There is ample space where
your hand rests but the click mechanism rests just above your index finger in
the middle of the pencil body. This may result in the pencil feeling fragile and

See my other review for the Ohto Tasche Needle Ballpoint Pen. Again, Ohto
"outdid" them on this one. The point for the pencil is positioned far enough in
so I don't feel like I'm writing with a foot of metal out in front of my
fingers, but yet the pipe that carries the lead is long enough for any drafting
or mechanical engineering applications.
The photographs do not show the location of the eraser, but it is underneath the
silver cap which holds that black rubber O-Ring. When you twist off the cap you
can easily tell by "feel" alone that the threads were machined properly; there's
no "scratchy" grinding.
Another outstanding feature is when you press the cap to advance lead. You get
just the right amount. You don't get 2mm of lead, which will inevitably break;
rather, your supplied with about .75 to 1mm of lead. . . that's PERFECT.
