I bought this pencil because I enjoy fine writing utensils, needed a pencil for homework and read the above review. The pencils craftsmanship is top notch, however the design is epicly flawed. The barrel the lead advances through is entirely too long and facilitates breaking the lead which then immediatly falls out. On that note, any time the lead is too short it falls out making the last third of any lead unusable. I go through lead extremely quickly with this pencil, either because it breaks and the breakage falls out, or both the breakage falls out and the remainder is too short and falls out as well. I do not reccomend this pencil unless you simply wish to look at it, as it's functionality is non existant.

Very poor performance, impossible to use because the leads jam and will not feed

I really liked the fact that the pencil has a cap and the looks and weight of the pencil are great. however, I had a hard time getting the lead to advance correctly and when I added a lead, a small piece fell out of the pen and I cannot tell from where. If not for this problem, I would keep it because I really like it, but I am sending it back. It is a good looking pencil.

Love everything about this pencil (and the matching pen) but they both come undone in my purse ALL THE TIME! I hate going to look for my Tasche pencil and finding it in 3 pieces! Tasche means purse in German and this one does NOT like purse pockets! But it looks nice, it writes well, the weight is great with or without the lid and the materials used are high quality SO! It will remain at home on the desk shiny and lovely!

Like other consumers, I bought this pencil (and its pen counterpart) for its looks. When I received the pencil, I was amazed at its looks and craftsmanship. The thing I really like about this pencil is the fact that it is very compact. The compactness of this pencil allows it to be put into any pocket without being too noticeable. Even though it is small when the cap is closed, it becomes much longer when you take the cap off and put it on the back. The cool thing about doing this is that the rubber O-ring on the back prevents the cap from moving. My only complaint about the pencil is the feeling I get when I "click" the pencil. In addition, I think this pencil is suitable only for short notes and letters. I don't think I could use it to write an essay or do calculus homework. Probably best suited for businessmen.

I bought this pencil because I liked the look and thought it was stylish. The problem is it just looks good it doesn’t work well. It feel loose and junky in your hand each time I pick it up the tip and end cap need to be screwed tight again. The movement of the pencil is not at all smooth it seems to be stuck each time I push the end to advance the lead. I have $3.00 and $5.00 dollar pencils from Target that put this one to shame.

See my other review for the Ohto Tasche Needle Ballpoint Pen. Again, Ohto "outdid themselves" 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 precision drawing 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. I know that probably sounds "geeky", but this shows quality and attention to detail in my opinion.

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.

Jet Pens . . . keep up the good work!
