One of my all-time favorites, ever since I was in single digits and appropriated
them from my Dad's pencil-mug. In spite of all the excellent writing utensils at
my disposal, I always seem to come back to this pencil, the 0.7mm leads hold up
quite nicely to my heavy-handed writing habits and the pencil holds up to abuse

I got hooked on these pencils many years ago, in art school. While not a
"recommended" pencil for class, I found them great for quick sketches. The
only drawback is the eraser--press too hard & you get more lead exposed. I
quickly discovered that having an eraser stick at hand is quite useful. I've
tried other mechanical pencils, but keep coming back to these; they're very
sturdy & hold up well.

A no nonsense mechanical pencil for both drafting and writing. I like the 0.7mm
leads for writing as they don't break as easy as the thinner leads. Feels good
in the hands and priced right. Eraser is a bit small like most mechanical
pencils, so I'd recommend a small to medium eraser to go with it.

Heres my review on this pencil.
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
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.
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.
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. I own the 0.5mm, 0.7mm and the 0.9mm

I have quite a few drafting pencils and somehow or another this one ends up in
my hands the most! It simply fits perfectly in my hands. It's light, but not
cheap feeling and it's very well balanced. It's just perfect for drawing and
