Bought for my wife who is a non-CPA Accountant. Here is her review after using the Pencil for a month or so: "I would say good. Writes smooth and interesting to have a colored pencil. The only complaint I have with it is that you have to write more upright than at a slant. Lead breaks rather quickly if slanted, but not so when up right."

Not typically a colored pencil user, however, I was very surprised and pleased with this one. It gives good color whether coloring in an area or regular handwriting. I did not experience any skipping that can happen with colored pencils. The eraser is not that great, but that is to be expected. Most mechanical pencil erasers are dismal and I don't really use them unless I don't have a hand held eraser handy. That being said, I thought this eraser worked pretty well at erasing all the color from the page. Application wise, I think these would work well for taking notes and using them to designate important information with color coding. They do color areas in well, but like most mechanical pencils you have to use a soft hand lest the lead breaks. I wouldn't use them to color large projects although I think it would do so beautifully. I just don't think it would be practical due to the price of the leads and the need to have to replace the lead frequently depending on how large of an area needing color. These is a great pencil. I certainly hope that Pilot ultimately adds more colors to this line.

I became interested in colored lead mechanical pencils ever since I figured out that many artists like to sketch with a light blue or red pencil. After obtaining that information, the search was on for a new sketching companion. If you're looking for an inexpensive sketching tool that utilizes color, look no further!
I've used this mechanical pencil for over three years and it has yet to fail on me! In fact, I'm sure that I've received well over my money's worth out of this wonderful pencil. A REALLY great thing about using these pencils for sketching is that they don't smudge nearly as much as regular graphite. Out of all the colors I use from this set, this blue is surely one of my favorites due to it being a nice shade of blue and not as light as the lighter blue.
But this pencil is not entirely perfect—shouldn't be expected since it is inexpensive. The eraser on it is completely useless after erasing about five things since the lead is not your ordinary graphite. If you're looking to use this for sketching purposes, it's always a good decision to carry a bigger eraser. The lead is also a bit more fragile than graphite. It's not BAD, it's kinda like they took the inside of an actual colored pencil and made it into tiny pieces of lead. If you're looking for more info on the lead, check out the corresponding refill page.
Besides that, this is definitely a reliable tool for all of your color-sketch needs.

A WONDERFUL pencil! I've been searching for colored mechanical pencil leads for so long, and these Pilot Color Eno pencils were quite the find. The lead creates soft, but sharp lines. I use it to sketch - I reccommend the bright blue and green lead for sketching, because they are very vivid, but your ink will cover it nicely. As for the pencil itself, it is very comftorable in the hand. The 'gummy' grip is nice as well. The eraser is great for emergancy detail erasing, but will wear down quickly.

If you're an artist and want to try a mechanical pencil for your sketching, these pencils are just the thing. ^^

I'd have to say this is one of the BEST pencils I have ever use! Its not easy to break so you can write on for a looong time. Its not as good as those $15.00 pencils, excluding w/ color, but this pencil is good for the price! A must-buy! =]

I love love love this pencil. I bought my first Pilot Color Eno (Soft Blue) some 2-3 years ago and it's still the one I used the most, out of any of my art supplies, to sketch with. About a week later I ended up buying the rest of the colours. They're so inexpensive, I like buying them as presents for my artists friends or recommending it to anyone new to jetpens.

The pencil is light and made from plastic, none of mine have had a problem with cracking and I haul these guys everywhere with me. The eraser is small and not very useful for erasing big parts, but for finer details it does a lovely job, just make sure you have a bigger eraser laying around when using this pencil. The lead erases very nicely, it will smudge (not streak) if you're rubbing your hand over the picture while you're drawing.

I think everyone should own at least one of these pencils, they're fantastic.

I thought that I would upgrade to ad Ohto Promecha 1000 for 14 dollars more, I went back to this it is vastly superior, not perfect as it leaves about 1/4 inch to a 1/2 an inch of lead wasted because the feeder cannot grasp it, but for the money it is far better than that over priced Ohto rubbish.
great for the price

The color is just like it said. A nice, deep blue color. Perfect for drafting out my next sketch.

So far so good! I make comics and this is a pretty good sketching pen and doing my final line art is a lot easier now because I can see it better. I'll admit the eraser it comes with is small and doesn't erase vary well, however due to the size of the eraser I wasn't planning on using it anyway. So for you other artists out there if you want to be able to erase this stuff a lot easier then I'd highly recommend Artist Loft rubber erasers.
