Conventional mechanical pencils are only able to clutch the lead core until the last 10 mm, at which point the lead becomes unstable and falls out. The Platinum OLEeNU, on the other hand, can clutch a lead core until the very last 0.5 mm—a 95% reduction in waste that gives you almost 20% more writing out of a typical 60 mm long lead!

The OLEeNU also utlizes three separate mechanisms to help protects lead from breaking while you use it, for a total of four lead-saving features:

  • OLEeNU Guard—In ordinary mechanical pencils, a gap exists between the mechanism that grasps the lead and the pencil tip, resulting in an unprotected lead piece that is easily broken from pressure or movement. The OLEeNU contains two additional clutch parts that hold the lead to avoid breakage.
  • Internal Spring—An internal spring absorbs shock during writing to decrease lead breakage.
  • Sliding Metal Tip—The tip features a sliding metal sleeve that moves with the lead to give it extra support.
  • "Zero Shin"—Since the clutch of an ordinary mechanical pencil is located a slight distance from the tip, typically around 10-12 mm of lead is left unusable at the end (i.e. lead is too short for the pencil and must be thrown away). The two additional clutch pieces of the OLEeNU allow you to use lead up to 0.5 mm in length.
  • Note: For the pencil to hold the lead to the last 0.5 mm, an additional piece of lead must be loaded in the pencil body.

Great pencil. Love the retractable feature. Wish the lead rotated like the Kuru Toga, though!

Retractable tip, pocket safe! Comfortable to write with, not too narrow, rubbery no slip grip. Have not had chance to check the bit about the mechanism making more lead available but seems like a good thing, Haven't had any lead breakage, which to I am sometimes prone. Really nice pencil, gives the Kuru Toga a run.
