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.

BEST investment if you're...

BEST investment if you're a mechanical pencil user! This really does everything it boasts. I bought his pencil because I use the Uni cyan blue .5mm pencil lead as a non-photo blue under drawing for my sketches. I typically have problems with the lead breaking or losing those last few millimeters of perfectly usable lead, but this pencil does a great job at protecting it and using every last bit.

I carry this pencil around in a tin box everywhere I go. It gets knocked around and abused, but the body as well as the lead inside, has stood the test of time. I highly recommend this pencil if you're going to be using mechanical lead of B or darker. It's great for soft leads and totally worth the purchase.
