, June 9, 2010
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!...
, July 29, 2011
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...

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
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
