DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
The Presso Side Knock Mechanical is uniquely designed to optimize the amount of pencil lead and eraser that can be fit in one mechanical pencil body. The pencil was designed so that the lower half is just the right length to fit pencil leads, while the top half is entirely filled with an extendable eraser. It makes so much sense when you think about it, because in normal pencils the top half of the pencil body is wasted empty space.

The side button is located higher up on the pencil body so it doesn't interfere with your grip of the pencil. Presto! You can extend lead with a convenient click of a side button. Plus, the pencil comes in six beautiful see-through colors including green, blue, orange, pink, soft blue and yellow. To refill pencil lead, pull off upper white portion of body.

Yay! I got the very last one!

I have to say, this pencil is spectacular. It's got a really nice, smooth advancing action and the grip is very nice in my hand. I also really like the fact that the body of the pencil is made of a matte-finish plastic rather than super-shiny plastic, like most pens and pencils. It just lends it a different texture that is really nice.

I primarily use pencils to enter my students' grades into my grade book, so I can't tell you how comfortable it would be to write with for long periods of time, but for my purposes it works wonderfully. I also love this color--it's so bright that it just makes me happy to pick it up, and the likelihood that one of my students is going to be able to walk off with it without my noticing is slim to none.
