JetPens had heard about the S Series from Pilot (S3, S5, S10, S20, etc) long before we first held one, and now we understand why people love them so much.

The S3 line has the same great shape and body of the higher S series drafting pencils, but in a plastic form. The plastic barrels are colored to match the lead size of the pencil.

Pencils feature a ribbed grip (longer than usual to accommodate different hands), fixed sleeve and clip. This pencil will fulfill all your professional drafting pencil needs at a very economical price.

  I really like sketching..., June 15, 2009

I really like sketching preliminary lines with this pencil, when I'm still feeling out the shape of the drawing. It's smooth, light, and very slender. I have very very slender hands, and some overuse problems, so the light, balanced weight of this pencil suits me perfectly. There's enough of a grip near the tip. And I have to admit I really, really love the color! *laughs*

A very well balanced, ultra-light pencil, and economically priced. I've been drawing cartoons and illustrations for 37 years, and because I work fairly small, the .3mm is perfect for the job. Unlike heavier pencils which can isolate the artist's hand from the paper texture/surface, this pencil communicates the surface as effectively as a wooden pencil. The mechanism in all 4 of the pencils I purchased worked flawlessly. The easily removable clip gets out of the way. There's no flat spots on the pencil which can reflect drawing lamp light up into the eyes. Overall, a great, economical pencil for the professional. Large lead capacity, too. You can easily stuff 12 leads into the chamber.

This pencil is perfect. It advances just the right amount of lead, and it has a good grip. Definitely buy this if you're looking for a good drafting pencil! :)

works great! the lead is really hard and thin, great for detail. However, when I use it for a long time my fingers hurt from the grip, so it's better to put a cushion where the grip is :)

By stephan - See all my reviews
I really like this pencil I used to have this pencil before but I lost it it was red and also .3 it was my first time using a .3
pencil before I loved It.
But now going back to the red .3mm pencil i dont know why but in japan they have this pencil in many colors my sister has a pink version of this.

I use this pencil for drawing and writing and stuff like that I hold my hand very close to the top so it is really easy to get good control and very precise lines

bottom line best/cheapest .3 mm pencil
