Been using one of these for about 4 years now, purchased to replace a Pentel
207, and have been mostly happy with it. The retraction/clip mechanism was novel
to me, but now seems useful in terms of making dual purpose of two
already-existing items (the lead advance also extends the guide pipe ; the clip
acts as the lock mechanism, and then releases the guide pipe to retract - solid
The lead hardness indicator requires partial disassembly of the body to adjust &
then some practice/patience to get the body screwed back together without the
setting moving out of place.

I really like this pencil. It's a tad thin for my taste but otherwise performs
great. The clip is a great feature and has helped keep me from losing the pencil
a few times.

It's a tad too heavy, but it's nothing the appearance doesn't make up for –
it's just so damn good looking. The head shoots back into the body very hard,
and I hope it doesn't damage the mechanism in the long run.

Quite possibly this is the best-looking mechanical pencil of my collection with
the performance to match. The cool blue ruber grip dots make a nice contrast
with the metal barrel that would not be out-of-place in a sci-fi show. Normally
I prefer 0.5 mm mechanical pencils, but gave this one a try since the other
sizes were sold out. Its comfortable grip allows such precise control that one
can render really fine lines even with a 2B lead on smooth drawing paper (which
by the way does not smudge as badly as a rougher surface paper like bristol with
a vellum fisnih might). Very satisfying retractable point mechanism.
