This pencil was a very pleasant surprise to me. I don't know why I expected it
to be less of a pencil than it is but I did. This is my first pilot drafting
pencil and is a pleasure to write with. It's bottom heavy due to the metal grip
sleeve and end cap so it sets well in the hand. It has a nice girth and the fine
knurling on the grip sleeve presents the user with a nice griping surface. The
S10 has a very pleasing shape with a stylish pocket clip. Only the color is
wrong! Why yellow for the 0.3mm size? Why couldn't it have been blue? Anyway the
lead grade indicator stays in place by friction and believe me, once in place
it's not moving unless you want it too. Lead is projected in a large enough
increment that 2 clicks is all that's needed to produce enough lead to write
with. All in all a very nice pencil indeed!
