Wonderful lead. Provides an ideal darkness without exerting extra pressure while writing, can write lightly when needed, and it simply does not break. I've dropped my pencil a number of times with the lead out, and have not had it break once.

Erases smoothly with a decent eraser. The eraser tip on my Uni Kuru Toga is admittedly a piece of junk, but using the great Mitsubishi e-Knock eraser solves that. This lead partnered with these two utensils makes a winning pair.

Finally, works perfectly well with Scantron. You can leave the #2 lead at home if you want!

This is, put simply, great lead. I compared it to my previously-trusted Pentel lead, and while the difference isn't dramatic, it is noticeably harder to break. Very good overall.

Surprisingly strong! I wish this (or an equivalent) was sold in the US. I don't have to make sure I'm writing with the bare minimum length of lead with this.

So much better than other leads. It is SOOOO hard to break, and I love that, because I press down firmly when I write. Totally recommend this.

Very good lead. It creates a very nice, dark line when written with. Extremely strong; the only time it's broken was when I was writing something against a wall and my friend pushed my hand down while writing.

I think the container is a bit over-engineered though. Takes time for the lead to actually come out.

Verified Purchase
Dark lines, smooth and soft on the paper, resistant to breakage. The case has a small plastic bit protruding on a side that might break easily, this bit is necessary because of the interesting and convoluted mechanism used for opening the case, but a bit overkill.

Its a good lead if your into writing a lot of stuff. This lead doesn't run out as well as other lead, so you can write longer in one click of your lead pencil:)

Verified Purchase
Excellent lead. I love using this, and I don't use any other. After using Ain, those other ones just seem so bad to me.

Nice, solid construction and so hard to break I haven't managed it, and I tried.
