Pilot Clutch Point Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Black & Blue Body

DescriptionSpecifications
Japan is all about conservation, the Pilot Clutch Point is another pencil from Japan that will hold onto your pencil lead until the very last 1 mm! The standard length of a pencil lead is typically around 60 mm. In a conventional pencil, the pencil is only able to clutch the lead core until the last 10 mm. The remaining lead then typically becomes unstable and unusable. This wastes almost 17% of your lead! The Clutch Point has a clutch at the tip of your pencil that allows you to use your lead piece until the very end, giving you more writing time and saving you money. Also check out the Platinum OLEeNu High Grade Lead Breakage Prevention Mechanical Pencil and Uni-ball Millino Mechanical Pencil for more pencil lead conserving options.

Looks nice, but that's where it stops. For the price I expected so much more. The mechanics of the pencil are extremely clunky and lead doesnt always advance.

Pilot really dropped the ball on this one, and you'll be paying for a headache instead of a quality writing instrument. The lead will load, but it will always jam in the "clutch" from the lead tube in the pencil. The pencil has to be "front loaded" like a 2mm clutch pencil. I found that the last 10 MM of lead are still wasted, because it will not advance out of the clutch. A total waste of my bucks. Very disappointed that Pilot let this lemon out of the lab. Worst, most problematic mechanical pencil I've ever owned.

Poor design causes the lead to jam in the clutch when trying to load the pencil from it's interior storage tube. The pencil will, however load easily from the tip if you're careful not to break the lead while holding down the plunger and pushing it in. Very disappointed in this pencil, as I expected more from Pilot. It will save you lead because of its "clutch" design, but it looks like it will be a temperamental, glitch clunker of a pencil to use.

I bought this pencil, actually thinking it would save me some lead, but it turns out to be just the opposite. I've wasted and broken more pieces of lead trying to get this pencil to actually function than I would with a regular .5mm pencil. A complete waste of valuable time and money. The lead consistently jams in the advance mechanism and has to be "front loaded" to be useful. The pencil does not, as advertised, hold on to the last 2 mm of lead. Junk, junk, junk...and I'm surprised that Pilot ever let this thing out for retail.
