Honestly? I'm surprised...
December 7, 2014
Honestly? I'm surprised that I'm giving this five stars. For my cheap mechanical
pencils I always buy Pentel and as such I shouldn't have expected this to be of
similar or greater quality than any other Pentel pencil that could be picked up
I was disappointed when I first turned it over in my hand; it felt more poorly
made than the Pentel Click. The pencil is not metallic, only vaguely glittery,
and every seam on it is incredibly visible. Neither does the grip circle the
barrel completely. I suppose I was expecting it to be a mock-up of a metal body
pencil. I felt that I may have well gone to the dollar store instead.
Then I tried to write with it.
My mind changed completely.
This is such a light, slender pencil that it feels as if I am holding almost
nothing. It is extremely comfortable to sketch with, to turn, and unlike a lot
of other pencils due to their shape I can fit this against any of my fingers, at
any joint, depending the level of control or pressure required, and in either
hand. It stays where it's set without any need for a firm hold. I have CTS and
so far this is the most comfortable pencil I have ever used.
...Even though I'd hoped for something shiny, and this is anything but, it is
not a purchase that I will be regretting anytime soon. Highly recommended for
comfort in place of looks.
