the pencil feels and looks very nice the only problem i ave with it that i cant use it when im not at home because the lead is broken every time i get it out of my pencil case. (to make this clear not the tip of the lead breaks - the lead breaks in the pencil!) i can not recommand this pencil if you want to use it not only at home.....

This pencil is a little clicky - the lead sleeve clacks around when it's jostled. This isn't an issue but it's a little bothersome during tests and other quiet environments. It doesn't make noise during normal writing, just when it's flipped to erase, etc. The grip is comfortable and weighted well - it's not too heavy or too light (I've stabbed myself by dropping my Alvin Draftmatic point down... this pencil isn't weighty enough for that) and it offers a more substantial feel without an uncomfortable knurled grip. My one big complaint is that the color isn't as depicted. I was expecting a deep designer red orange, I would describe this color more as carrot. It's more towards yellow than red. I own the blue one as well and find it much more pleasing to the eye. Either way this is a nice deviation from the boring looking drafting pencils and it has a solid spot in my pencil case, mostly for its weight and grip comfort.

Excellent price on a very good drafting style pencil. One of the best values out there. Go ahead and spend days on Amazon digging. Add up what your time is worth! You will be back here instead of continuing to play the Amazon shipping, price and "month long slow boat from the far east" game. I've found that to be true time and time again!

See my review of the graphlet 0.3 mm also made by Pentel. The two pencils are (I'm guessing) made in the same factory and have similar quality issues: the barrels aren't straight. This one has a slight bend in the orange barrel and the metal grip is fastened at a slight but noticeable angle. These are annoying defects in a $10.00 pencil, in any pencil, really. The three stars however dont reflect the defects (for those, one star) but rather the fact that the grip is too slippery, even with the ridges. Nice colour, nice design, but sorry, poor functionality, poor quality control.
