This is an amazing pencil for everyday use. It has great quality and it feel really sturdy. It has an average drafting eraser , so I recommend buying the Boxy eraser.

  Ahhh, what can I say,..., March 1, 2013
By ericgustafson2004 - See all my reviews
Ahhh, what can I say, I've used this pencil since I was in 4th grade. By far the pencil I've used the most, even made a BB shooter out of one of these (in grade school at that). So heres my review.

Pros:
Length - Decent, not real long, not real short, it works.
Pipe Length - About standard, not enough to make a difference on how I hold it for writing.
Tip - Works well enough, no gripes.
Grip - Has one.
Body - More of a solid piece, dont really have to worry about it unscrewing at the tip, works well.
Clip - Standard, works well enough.
Cap - One mine, they've never slipped off, so thats a HUGE plus in my book.
Eraser - Has one, but I really dont use it. Some have the needle for clearing, never needed it personally.
Finish - Kinda shiny, doesnt show scratches really, the shiny metal makes it more appealing to the eye. The different body colors makes it easy to see what lead size the pencil is.
Weight - On the lighter side, not a problem in my book, weight isnt really ever an issue with me in pencils.
Lettering - Pretty decent, they placed it a good spot where it really wont get rubbed off from using it consonantly.


Cons:
Tip - Has unscrewed before while writing, nothing major, and again, this is the pencil I've used the most in my writing.
Lead Indicator - Doesnt have one, I just write whatever lead softness I'm using and tape it on the body below the cap.
Grip - Biggest problem, not that its a huge problem, but it tends to get slippery when writing for hours. Wish the grip groves were more pronounced.

Overall:
I love this pencil, I've gotten more used to other drafting pencils with better grips and other features, but I wouldnt feel right not having one of these. For the price, definitely worth having.

  My favorite pencil ever...., May 26, 2012
By dba... - See all my reviews
My favorite pencil ever. I've used (as I like pencils) probably most mechanical (and wooden) pencils available mostly from Germany and Japan, two countries that produce quality products, costing from few dollars to over $50 each but, I always come back to this classic pencil.

It just becomes part of my hand with its lightness and shape, I can use it all day while most other pencils I either get uncomfortable or bored after some time.

I mostly use 0.3mm and 0.7mm so I can have two different thickness in lines (0.5 and 0.7 is too close for me) but 0.5 and 0.9mm can be used for this purpose too. 0.3mm pencil (brown barrel) is currently not distributed by Pentel USA but is by web shops, especially if you order from Europe or Asia. eg, pixiemall (Korea) or stationeryart from Hong Kong and many Japanese sites. 0.3 (p203) is probably the best 0.3mm pencil ever made. I'm surprised JetPens does not carry it yet.

It is a simple no frills standard mechanical pencil. I is much better than bic. I has a metal front and a metal clip it has flat sides so it will not role off your desk. this is good for graphing lines.
  This is a great pencil..., May 23, 2013
By muhammadmoosa64 - See all my reviews
This is a great pencil overall. Unfortunately, the pencil is a little too hard to write with. As a drafting pencil, it does a phenomenal job. When actually writing, the feel of the pencil makes writing very jagged and rough.
