So this pencil is TINY....

So this pencil is TINY. Like, really really tiny. It didn't register how small it actually is until I was holding it in my hand. I can't use it for too long or my hands starts to ache from gripping such a small object. Recommended for the more petite if you plan to use it for longer stretches.
That said! I really like this little thing and will be ordering a few more in different colours. It's very sturdy, has a good weight to it (really!) and clips securely. The eraser is nothing to write home about, but it doesn't streak or crumble or anything.
I found a surprising use for it that I feel the need to share. On a lark, I used this instead of my primary mechanical pencil (large, heavy, 0.5) for a few study pages in my sketchbook, and found myself unconsciously drawing smaller, tighter lines. I wound up filling the page with about twice as many little diagrams as I normally would have, with notations crammed into the tightest spaces, even though the lead size is the same as I usually use. I definitely wouldn't use it for loose, shaded sketches, but it's going to be right at home with the kit I use to doodle in coffee shops or on the train.
It looks nice, feels nice, is extremely portable and I'm not afraid of possibly breaking it despite its size.

This pencil although very small, it is hard to get a very good grip on it. However, the slim style makes it easy to store but easy to lose at the same time! The clip works okay, but I suggest not to use it too much! This pencil for me seems a little hard to write neatly with. I would suggest the Ohto mech pencil.
Very Happy with this...

Very Happy with this purchase. Just what I was looking for in a smaller pencil!
