I love the raw wood texture of this pencil, it's very easy to grip, and the
satin silver finish against the red stain look amazing.
The top of the pencil can be rotated when removed to display different lead
hardnesses. It just needs to be removed, and with one hand, you hold the base,
and with the other hand you spin the top until it displays the desired lead
hardness. There's HB, F, H, 2H, and 2B, in that order.

Top, top quality working tool. This pencil is distinctive and elegant, but
don't let that fool you. It takes care of business. I have a lot of pencils
that are beautiful, and a lot of pencils that get the job done - none does both
better. The S20 is a pleasure to hold (I also have the 0.5mm for less detailed
work) - the wooden texture is smooth but won't slip, and the grip design lends
itself well to both drafting or writing. You could comfortably use the S20 all
day. All this in a pencil you would be proud to show off. The eraser, however,
is for emergencies only (I recommend the black Boxy from JetPens for office
situations). This pencil is an excellent value for the money.

I admit the main reason I bought this was that it's gorgeous. It writes really
well, though it is (for me) a bit on the lighter side. Feels very well balanced

Pros: Solid, Beautiful, Wooden design and color.
Cons: Tip can EASILY be bent, the cap only displays one lead grade and thats B.
Also the ring encompassing the pencil around its center has the company name and
manufacturing location on it but it wears off really quick.
Overall: 4/5 good for occasions, wouldn't recommend as primary unless your
confident you won't drop/bed the tip. (.3mm pencils all share this problem
purchased this pencil back in 2010 around October-November used about 4-6 hours
total writing time.
