You don't even have to press the top of this pencil to extend the lead. It's a Shaker pencil, which means all you have to do is shake the pencil and the lead extends itself through an internal weight mechanism! To learn more about Shaker pencils, check out the JetPens.com TV video below.
The Dr. Grip is a best-selling line all over the US and Asia. But Americans seem satisfied with the boring standard pen bodies that are available year after year in US office stores. But every year, Japan comes out with new color and special edition lines of the Dr. Grip. Most lines debut and end in Japan before we in the US are even aware of the opportunity that such a thing could be possessed. But now, the door has been opened and JetPens has brought in the newest color lines of the Dr. Grip from Japan. The G-spec color series comes in pearly white body colors with seven grip color shades including: black, green, orange, red, soft blue and white. The pencils feature a layer of air between the rubber grip of the pencil and pencil body to allow a heat cooling effect, dispersing heat from fingers to keep hands cool even when you're under pressure. The pencil is a delight to the eyes and a delight to write with. It will be a colorful companion to the work or school place. Pencil and pens are available for the Dr. Grip line.

Outstanding quality. I highly recommend this product to any person interested in a high quality note taking AND long period writing pencil. This pencil has a thick barrel thus giving the pencil balance for neat writing. I still have several Dr. Grips that have been constantly in use for 5 YEARS. I cannot find a con for this pencil. You can even take out the top body shaft and decorate it with stickers or drawing! Overall, this product is amazing, and is in the top 10 Japanese pencil choices list!

This is a good pencil for note-taking. I didn't buy mine from this site, so I don't know if this is the retractable-point version, but mine is. I like to carry it around in a pocket and it doesn't give me scars like my Pentel P-205.

Just got this in the...
Just got this in the mail today and it's pretty awesome. Though it would have been nice if some generic art was provided for the top part of the body just for fun.
