This mechanical pencil line exudes quality and precision. It is a work of art...the "Porsche Design" or "Mercedes" of drafting tools. Love the heavy duty feel of the locking clasp mechanism which extends and retracts the lead point. Feels like a German product -- heavy and a bit over-engineered -- built to last! A mechanical jewel which is a delight to admire and hold.

WOW, so many people love this pencil but....

I feel a little heavy for my taste. I'm designer and illustrator, btw.
The design is really nice (it's metal), the unlock-release function of the Clip is very practical (no more suffering to retract the nib).
The hilt is not so grip as you could think. The rubber little things, I don't feel they adds any extra traction to fingers really.

The center of the weight is on the center which makes not so good to write or even sketching for long periods of time.
If the weight were more to the tip side would be perfect.

Among my favorites. Solid mechanical feel, nicely weighted, very comfortable grip for all day sketching. Retracting mechanism is a nice feature that will hopefully pass the test of time. I've been sketching with this beauty for about a year now. I dropped it once onto a marble floor (fortunately the point was retracted). It survived with nary scratch- well worth the money- highly recommended

Wow! What a great pencil! Best pencil I have ever owned. (so far) :-)

I bought the pens versions also. The grip has a very interesting feel to it, I like the metal grooves but it also has some pads on it which I like also.

Pencil of choice!

This is such a neat pencil, and the design keeps the tip safe when you aren't using it. I didn't really like it though because it wasn't very comfortable for me. I have small hands, and the balance of the pencil is too far rearward for me. If I let go of it, it would tip backwards. Most of my pencils and pens don't do this, and it made it uncomfortable. I ended up wearing out the grip on the pencil down to the bare brass because I used it a lot, and that didn't look really good. Finally, the sticker at the end of the pencil to tell you what lead size it is is a sticker, and it seems like it fades after some use. Eventually I went and got a Pilot S3, and that has lasted me a lot longer and has been much more comfortable. The only thing I miss is the retracting tip of this pencil.

I love this pencil, its my workhorse daily writer and doodler. I keep breaking the hinge by clipping it to my pant pocket. It still works, just the tip wont retract once you break that. What else, good weight and feel, wish the knurled barrel was a little wider, but my arthritis is just flaring early in life.

Very well made but top heavy and the knurled grip could be more defined. The mechanics are flawless and normally run it with 2B leads.
