This pencil is great for the price. I really like the minty blue color. And the end of it is heavier than the top, and it's very nice for drawing. I use it for drawing Manga. This is my first drafting pencil, and I really love it. I would recommend this.

My hands are a bit towards small, I have smallish hands and the thickness of the grip is just a bit too thick, it feels like a little too much. Although it's same thickness as Pentel's Graphgear 500, which is ok, still it feels like thicker. You could get used however, I guess. I think it felt thickish after Pentel Graph 1000. The quality is super and I begin to like how the thin line it leaves interacts with the body, which is, again I say a little too thick in the grip. Perhaps just a millimeter off would make it PERFECT

I can probably safely say this is my absolute favorite pencil. The balance and the design are amazing. Probably not the best pencil for writing essays, but it's the best one I've used for sketching and drawing.

This pencil is simply amazing. It is my very first 0.3mm pencil ever. I was astonished to find the lead really small and thin, compared to lead 0.7mm. (I'm a 0.7mm user.) The blue green color is really cool and goes great with the silver color on the pencil. This pencil comes with 5 pieces of lead and be careful when dropping it. I already dropped it like 4 times and the tip got bent a bit. Though I fixed it somehow. It also comes with an eraser-lead jammer, in case you get the lead stuck. But to me, the grip is a bit slippery. I'm not complaining though.

Sturdy pencil in a such a beautiful color! I love a balance of aesthetics and quality. The tip itself doesn't snap the thin lead and the grip is more comfortable than other metal grips I have been able to experience. It has some weight, just enough to be comfortable. As an artist I prefer more weight for stability, but this much prevents the hand from getting tired.

Shame these aren't available anymore. I still have mine, but I would buy a backup if I could. This pencil is great. Very good handfeel, nicely balanced, good weight up towards the finger grip. If you can find it anywhere, pick one up.

I'm incredibly impressed by how absolutely amazing this pencil is. It's great for lining over sketches done with a colored lead. I would recommend it for any artist interested in cleaner lines and softer sketches.
Build-wise, the metal on the grip makes the pencil heavier, and - for my shaking hands- easier to handle and use without error.

There´s something wrong with this pencil because I never use it! It is by far the loveliest-looking mech I have, but I always choose PG1000 or Platinum Pro-Use (the slim version) instead. The barrel has a yummy color but the grip feels very hard, heavy and cold to the hand, I can´t imagine why cold! Those other two mechs also have a metal grip, but they are not hard and cold. Maybe the metal in this one is thicker so it does not get warm in the hand as quickly as the other two. Whatever the reason, PG600 is uncomfortable to use, it´s better to the eye than to the hand. Get PG1000 instead.

I was worried that such a thin lead (I'm using Hi-Uni)would be awkward to draw with or disappear on the page, but it shows up pretty dark and easily visible. If you're worried about a 0.3 for sketching, I say go ahead! It's replaced my 0.5 and I haven't looked back yet.

The pencil is very light overall, but the metal grip gives it a comfortable heft. Good for long periods of use. The one problem I found with it is that the edges of the clip are a bit pointy, and it wound up getting in the way as I rotated the pencil... aaand then I discovered that the clip slides off and felt a bit silly. So yeah! The clip slides off! Good to know.

Very decent pencil, and I love the colour.

I bought this pencil with my first order because i needed a new .3 pencil and i really love it! I do find it a bit annoying that the tip isnt retractable, but it wont really be a problem so long as its kept on a desk or in a snug case. also the top bit of the pencil that lets you show the type of lead you're using is difficult to turn. Overall, if you can go with a .5, theres a lot better pencils you can get for a little less, but i know im gonna be using this pencil a lot while the tip lasts
