I want to like this eraser, but a couple of flaws keep it from being a favorite.
The triangular shape should allow precision erasing, but once you've worn a corner down, the precision is lost. After a few erasures, you're left with a big round eraser.
The mechanism doesn't hold the eraser in place well, so direct pressure will push the eraser back into the body. Side-to-side is okay, but combined with the above, it loses the precision the triangular shape could deliver.
The eraser itself is good, not abrasive at all, and very effective. I don't find the shavings to be sticky or hard to brush off, and HB markings are 98% removed. If the clutch could hold the eraser in place better, this could be perfect.

In response to a couple of previous reviews regarding crumbs/dust sticking to the paper:

I've also noticed this happening but I've found that lightly pressing the eraser to those clumps lifts them with almost no effect on any graphite that might be under those crumbs. There is some but I'd have to break out a loupe or magnifying glass to notice.

On the other hand, I tend to only do non-"production" sketches so I might not be the best authority.

For me this eraser works very, very well and is (in my opinion) a step up from the round click-sticks by which I used to swear. I like the shape much more since I find it to be much more versitile.

Just my opinion. HTH.

wow, using this compared to my steadler mars eraser stick, is so much better, the eraser isn't crumbly and it removes my pencil marks with more ease, i would definitely recommend these :D

It's ok. Although I wouldn't buy this again over any other block eraser such as the kokuyo campus and uni boxy, it does its job as a reliable knock eraser. It leaves lots of residue and loses its sharp triangular points over time, but erases pretty cleanly. 3/5 but wouldn't buy again. If you want a knock eraser go with the tombow precision, or, get a block eraser for more reliability.

Completely agree with previous review. Got this more as a novelty to add to my erasers collection. This is an ok eraser in that it adequately removes graphite marks, but it does tend to leave debris sticking to the paper surface. Its shape is quite comfortable to hold and control for some precision erasing making it ideal for writers, but slightly less useful for artistic applications. My advice for sketching artists would be to try the Pilot Foam eraser or the Boxy eraser that are more efficient and cleaner to use.

This eraser is, for lack of a better word, ok. It erases well. It's not too abrasive, but does erase graphite cleanly. However, the eraser "dust" sticks to the paper, requiring you to wipe it away with your hand. For everyday writing this may be ok, but for drafting to sketching, wiping shavings away with your hand leads to smearing of graphite, which is not acceptable. I would only recommend this eraser if you don't do any sketching, drawing, drafting, etc. For those purposes it's great.
