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.
