This pencil is reasonably comfortable to hold, with a relatively thick barrel
and a fairly broad range of grip position available- if you crowd the tip, it'll
do fine. My only ergonomic gripe is that the plastic can be pretty slick, which
is probably why there are other models with progressively grippier grip areas
available. Lead advance is by a 3-jawed brass clutch, which unfortunately
doesn't feel terribly precise or "clicky". The translucent barrel grants an
unflattering view of the mechanism woggling to and fro in its passage. The other
end of the pencil is reasonably snug, though the cap can feel a bit loose. The
quality of plastic and molding is, overall, excellent, however, and the eraser
includes a cleaning pin. I can't say I'd recommend this over, say, the Paper
Mate Precision models offered elsewhere on this site, with similar, and more
successfully met, ergonomic goals.
