Love these small pencils (got the pen as well) ... they go everywhere with me. The mechanisms are great and you cannot beat the size; slips into the smallest tote or pocket or evening bag... (and being the diva that I am) it also gathers a lot of 'oohhs' and 'cools' (besides working fantastically - I've had mine for over a year and still works like new!) and where did you get that?... JetPens of course! The best writing products for people that really love their writing and drawing content!

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 unbalanced.

The amount of lead being fed out is very generous, not too much or not to little. The quality of lead being used will greatly increase your usage pleasure as the pencil flows across the page instead of inferior leads scratching the surface.

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.
