I ordered this as a curiosity....
I ordered this as a curiosity. My usual caliber is 0.5, and I've tried a few 0.3 mechanical pencils before and found the lead too thin for my style of writing, it often broke off when I went to dot my i's or cross my t's. So this was an impulsive purchase because I'd never heard of a 0.2 mechanical pencil before.
Well, after a few lines of writing I was an instant convert! This is actually one of the best mechanical pencils I've ever used. It doesn't have the satisfying heft of a Rotring 600, or the good looks of a Pentel Kerry, but boy, can it write! With B lead, it makes a thin, dark line that is razor-sharp. The mechanism for protecting the lead when writing is ingenious and works very well.

Rugged and stylish P200-like...
Rugged and stylish P200-like body with clever and fool-proof mechanism that allows you to use a 3mm length of lead per click while protecting it with the sliding lead sleeve. Affordable pencil that brings you the best of both worlds, a thin line with none of the inconvenients typically associated with it.
