DescriptionSpecificationsQuestions & Answers
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.

This pencil feels very solid and sturdy in hand. It also has a professional appearance but not too flashy.
Its center of mass is located just above the grip on the barrel where the logo is.

These pencils are fantastic. I have 4 and just ordered 4 more. They work exactly as advertised. I haven't had a single lead break in over 4 months of using them. I cannot understand why the other reviewer had such bad luck.
The advertised mechanism...

The advertised mechanism does NOT work as it should. This pencil actually breaks lead more easily than any other I've used. Furthermore, the pencil does not grip lead to the last little bit; it allows it to slide out and break off!
