JetPens had heard about the S Series from Pilot (S5, S10, S20, etc) long before we first held one, and now we understand why people love them so much. The pencil features an interesting combination of plastic and metal. The top part of the barrel consists of see through colored plastic, but the elongated grip is made of a nice ribbed metal. The result is a pencil that has an excellent weight and feel to it. The pencil features a fixed sleeve, textured metal grip, lead indicator, and cap labeled with pencil lead size.

I have many mechanical pencils. I use them but always return to my S-10's. I have all 5 and enjoy using all of them. I like the grip and the weight. I will probably reorder all 5 and just put them away in case any of them break and Pilot decides to discontinue them.

My favorites are the 4mm because I can write thin without the sensitivity of the 3mm. I also like the 7mm because I like the blue color and being able to write relatively boldly without the extremes of the 9mm.

Great first impression!...

Great first impression! I have a lot of mechanical pencils & am not easily impressed. Normally I would wait until I have used something a while to write a review, but I can tell immediately this is a well made pencil. I like it. Nice weight, well balanced, even sounds good. All metal grip is long enough to work for a wide range of writing styles. This is a working tool not a showpiece. I have other pencils that look cooler (a lot cooler in fact) but expect to pick this one up regularly because of the quality build. Makes me want to spring for the nice wooden S20!

For me, it's the best mechanical pencil in 0.4mm diameter lead available on the market. It's very well built, and the grip enable you a lot of possibilities to hold it. Remembering that the body it's a hard plastic and the grip is all metal, but for me, this pencil rocks!

Probably the best bang...
April 7, 2013
Probably the best bang for your buck you'll ever have. Well crafted, beautiful and futuristic with the longest knurled grip in any pencil that's currently being produced. (Pilot's own H-109x has its knurling up to 2/3rds of its body, but sadly it has been discontinued and the prices are rising up to Rotring 800 levels)
Great clicking sound, smooth writing experience (probably because the default lead is grade B) and great design.
Two things, though:
1. The knurled grip is a bit too smooth for me. Making it a bit rougher would do no harm. But again, it's personal.
2. Whatever you do, DON'T remove the pocket clip. You will leave scratches on it.
