The body of this pencil...
, September 20, 2010
The body of this pencil is metal, it's lightweight but not too light. It's
comfortable in the hand and makes a satisfying CLICK when the top is pressed. It
comfortable to write with and seems sturdy. The lead hardness indicator actually
stays on the selected hardness. I might purchase another in a different lead
size. Very pleased

Bought this pen in Japan and used it on a daily basis for years without trouble.
Light but sturdy and very comfortable. I only need to replace it due to it
falling to rigors no pen should endure.

I don't think the description...

I don't think the description is too far off for this pencil. very well balance
and smooth clean finish. the grip sports grooves cut into it to prevent
slipping. my only complaint is that the grip itself could be a bit longer to
support several finger positions, and perhaps a small color indicator to let you
know what size pencil your using at a glance. the band above the grip serves as
the size indicator, but the difference between them is very subtle. overall
great and well constructed and balanced pencil with a very nice finish.

I have 3 mechanical drafting style pencils. I alternate between using them all.
This has slick good looks and a light weight body. I was surprised at how light
weight it was right out of the package. It's fantastic for using with my sketch
set because it is so light weight.
It's also very comfortable to use in a variety of grips, from standard tripod
grip to overhand grip. I really like the fat clicker on the end and that it
gives a satisfying *Click* when pressed. The fact that the lad designation stays
put is great too, especially as I fill my pencils with a variety of leads, from
H to 4B, reliably know what I put in my pencil last is really nice.
Overall a great pencil, well worth the price.
| I bought this for working...

I bought this for working math problems, taking notes, and sketching. The first
thing I noticed was the flawless build quality. It is heavier than it looks, but
not uncomfortably so. It feels durable. The round, ringed, aluminum grip is
nearly as secure as I would like, and does it without knurling. The round
aluminum grip is larger than the diameter of the round aluminum barrel. The
advancement of the lead is positive. There is no way to retract or cap the tip,
so it is not "pocket safe". This pencil reminds me of a Staedtler 925 without
knurling or rubber grips, and all the edges rounded. Some pencils I try, but
lose interest. The Platinum Pro-Use I is a classic pencil that holds my
