DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions (1)
The Kerry pencil from Pentel is shaped as a classic American beauty. Designed with the professional in mind, these compact mechanical pencils are capped and have beautiful shiny bodies with matted silver color tips. They are shaped almost as if they should be fountain or ballpoint pens. The cap fits on the back of the pen when in use, and has an eraser (refillable with PENTEL Z3-1 eraser refill) hidden at the top. Very elegant for the work place. Uses 0.5 mm lead.

The cap and body of the Pentel Sharp Kerry are made of different materials and will differ slightly in color.

High Quality and Comfortable

Looks are subjective so I won't get into that.
I am an Engineering student and can say with confidence that this is a very well designed and high quality mechanical pencil. As a engineering student I spend well over thirty hours a week writing. I have long
fingers and even though the Kerry looks short and stubby in the photos, it is amazingly comfortable in my large hand. This is my go-to-pencil when I have to spend hours at a time writing homework.

In writing configuration the pencil is about 5 3/16" (13.2 cm) long and about 4 15/16" (12.5 cm) when capped up. The grip is a bit thicker than you would suspect from the photos, tapers from about 10mm to 8mm, and has a nice hefty feel to it.
Overall the Sharp Kerry feels well balanced in the hand, has a medium weight and rock solid when writing.
The 0.7mm graphite-lead is held solid in place, no slopping around when you're writing.
The Sharp Kerry reminds me of a luxury version of a #2 pencil.

The lead advance is also precise letting small increments of lead with each push of the button. The lead advance mechanism is very clever having the button located at the tip of the dual-purpose removable cap/pocket clip. The internal barrel push button pushes out the retractable cap button when the cap is moved to the top of the barrel for writing. When packed away the cap protects the lead-end tip.

I'm glad I have one.

These are fantastic, durable, and useful pencils. The cap allows you to practically carry it about in your pocket. The tension on the lead is nice, the mechanism is reliable, and the finish is good for what is really just a well designed, plastic pencil.

I liked the first one so much that I bought another in case I lost the first. I've used mine quite a bit and they still work after a Lamy and a Kaweco (both .7mm) failed.

I've owned this pen for at least a couple of years now, so it's time for a review.
As far as the build goes, it's solid and tight. If it were a car, it would have that satisfying muffled thunk of a luxury car door closing. Another reviewer noted the small incremental lead I compared about 25 clicks of the Kerry vs. a 7mm Koh-I-Noor Rapidomatic that I like, and, sure enough, the Kerry lead was shorter by a millimeter...vs. an Alvin Draftline, even shorter. So okay, I'll agree it's a plus.
The feel is good, and the heft is moderate, but not to the point of fatigue.

Overall, it's a fine mechanical pencil.

I've used the Kerry pencil...
November 18, 2015
I've used the Kerry pencil for more than 30 years. My dad had one and when I was in junior high, I used any excuse possible to use his 0.5mm Kerry pencil. When I was a junior in high school, my dad gave me my own 0.5mm Kerry pencil which I still have today. I thought I lost my original Kerry pencil around the turn of the century, so I was pleased when, in 2005, the Kerry appeared in an office supply catalogue and I ordered it immediately. I later found my original 0.5mm and passed my new 0.5mm Kerry to my son. Today, I keep my original Kerry stored safely away and am using exclusively the 0.7mm pencil; I tend to write in a heavy-handed manner and I've found the 0.7mm is perfect for my style of writing for work and I have yet to encounter any fatigue while using this pencil. Good writing instruments are definitely a worthy investment.
