This pencil uses the same brass, 3-jawed clutch mechanism as the Smash and Graph
1000, with a metal magazine tube. Balance is forward, as expected with the metal
grip, which is not altogether grippy, but not what I'd call slippery.
Everything's up to Pentel snuff, no surprises. For now, this is my go-to drawing
pencil. And if you're not sure, yes, the color is absolutely gorgeous in life.
This is one fine looking tool.
