I'm not a big fan of metal grips: they're either unpleasant to hold because they have coarse knurling or they're not grippy enough which is the case here. (so why do I have them? We learn by experience: hard rubber or textured plastic wins.) However the pencil I received should ge only 1 star, because it has a quality issue: The barrel is bent in the middle by a little less than one degree. It doesn't sound like much but it's quite - and annoyingly - visible. There may have been a problem at the Pentel factory since my graph 600 has a similar problem. I can't recall such a defect on any other of my pencils except perhaps a woody. (I bought both pencils more than a year ago so that problem may be corrected.)

Great little drafting pencil. All plastic, lightweight. Fixed sleeve, so it's a desk pencil, not a shirt pocket carry pencil. But that's OK, I have others for that. What I really like are the little extra touches: a wire stuck in the bottom of the eraser that can be used to clean out broken lead jammed in the sleeve, and a lead type indicator that you can set to show what lead is in the pencil.

I bought this pencil for a friend, and when it arrived, I was amazed at how GREAT it looked. It was gorgeous and sleek, and ahhhh I can't even begin to describe it. It was a pencil of perfection. I was tempted to keep it for myself. But anyways, I gave to to my friend as an early Christmas present, and he loves it! I have no idea how it writes though, so for now I'll give it a 4. But it's definitely a very gorgeous, minimalist pencil!

I have reevaluated this pencil and find th is I hold it a little lower down on the grip so that my fingers grasp the knurling and not just the lined upper portion of the grip then I can hold onto the pencil better and control it better. However it is a bit on the skinny side for me so my rating has not changed. But still, for those who have skinnier fingers than I do may well find this pencil a five star winner.

This is a light, slim pencil. Construction is very good and the quality is high. The only thing I don't like about this pencil and why it did not get a five star rating from me is it's hard to hold. The chromed knurled lead indicating sleeve at the end of the pencil is lightly knurled, to lightly to afford a good grip. The chrome is very slick as well because it's highly polished. Because of these two factors I find it hard to write with because I am holding it to tightly. This makes my hand tired after a short while. The version without the chrome sleeve should be easier to hold and write with.
