This is my absolute favorite...
, August 31, 2012
This is my absolute favorite mechanical pencil. It has a somewhat heavier weight
than most pencils, but it is very balanced. This is because the whole thing is
made of good, thick plastic and metal. I have had one of these for nearly 7
years and is still holding strong under frequent use. What makes this pencil
even better is the low price of it.

This pencil is one of...
, November 6, 2012
This pencil is one of my more preferred pencils that I use out of my collection.
Not only in this lead size but all three lead sizes (.5 , .7, .9). I usually
take the .7 and .9 to work with me because the lead is more durable and when I'm
in a hurry to jot something down, I don't have to worry about breaking the lead
as much. The thinner .5 I usually use when I'm taking notes in my Bible or study
binder because the thinner point allows for more words per inch.
As a previous poster noted, it's a "well balanced pencil", indeed it is. It's
sturdy in the hand and it performs well.
I do however have a few minor "quarrels" with the design. It seems that after
one of these has been used for a few months on a regular basis, the grip seems
to loosen from the barrell and kinda binds up; sliding out of the desired area
for the grip. My .5 was bad for this, so I actually took a bit of superglue and
glued the top of the grip to the barrel. It kept it from sliding, but it still
Another thing I find irritating is that the top eraser assembly slides off the
pencil way too easy, especially on a well used one. It always tries to come
apart when I pull it from my shirt pocket or from my pants pocket. Some sort of
"click-lock" in the design would keep this from happening unintentionally.
But despite this, I still enjoy using these pencils. I recommend adding them to

My absolute favorite...
, February 7, 2013
My absolute favorite pencil- I have been using these for years- I am an
architect and use this (.7mm B or 2B lead) for all my sketches. The soft lead
and amazing eraser are the combination I like to sketch what-if's and turn them
into finishes concepts.
Durability and versatility...

Durability and versatility at a great price. This is what I grab if I'm going
out with my sketchbook and only one pencil. The large eraser allows for the
correction of large areas, and the 0.7mm lead is wide enough for some shading,
but small enough to add details. It's easy on sketchbook paper too, unlike
0.5mm, which tends to stab into most weights of paper if you are laying down
lines in a hurry.
Plus, the burgundy color is understated and classy.
