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.

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.

I love this eraser. I use it every day. It is a very durable eraser that removes lead that other erasers can't. I do a lot of detail drawings at work and really enjoy the shape of the eraser. The points are great for removing small details while the flat is great for larger errors. This eraser works really well on removing colored pencil lead too.

I love this eraser body and the refills. I am really happy Pentel released this pen style eraser and that the refills have high quality. Before, I was using the Pentel Clic and I hated it. The plastic body was okay, but it felt cheap and the eraser refills break easily. Thank you Pentel for releasing this upgraded eraser!
