Can a pencil be a muse? Perhaps the designer of this pencil thought so. Its sleek aluminum body is crafted to look like what a precision instrument is meant to be - a tool for creative design. A colored lead indicator located at the base of the guide pipe adds a colorful spark to this drafting pencil.

The Platinum PRO-USE line is available in both a wide and slim body style to suit your preference. Features a 4 mm guide pipe, lead indicator, ribbed metal grip, clip and capped eraser. Available in 0.3, 0.5 and 0.7 mm lead sizes.

This is the coolest looking drafting pencil in my arsenal of 13.
the only negative thing about this hot piece of pencil is it is lacking the percussive click in the lead advance dept. (like a rotring 600 or staedtler 925). Its more of a quiet metal against metal *shik*. If you like to draw and rock head turning it nerd!

Verified Purchase
As an avid collector of exotic and fine stationary equipment this my favorite. As soon as I got this pencil I knew it was something I would not be able to put down. It is very different than any other drafting pencil on the market with the very thick body and grip. This makes for a unique writing/drawing experience. The construction is solid metal and has a very interesting texture that I enjoy. This pencil is one of the best around. I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves stationary equipment.

The pro-use II 0.3 mm...
Verified Purchase
The pro-use II 0.3 mm is a kick-ass mechanical pencil. The weight is just right a little more towards the front with a stubby barrel and an elegant taper past the middle. This thing rests absolutely perfect in the nook of my thumb and forefinger, it's finger-candy. Best of all this entire pencil is either made of metal or brushed aluminum, even the tube where the leads are stored, the only thing plastic is the eraser. I don't care for fat pencils at all so I was hesitant on purchasing the Pro-Use II, but the other reviews convinced me otherwise. Apon receiving it I was happy to see that the barrel was the same size as Super Promecha in diameter.
Overall I am extremely happy with my purchase and plan on ordering the Pro-Use II 0.5mm next. Also, as far as customer service service goes Jetpens is top knotch. My original order was sent to someone else by fault of the USPS, they did nothing to resolve the problem. I contacted Jetpens and they sent me a new order in just a few days. Hands down the best...

This pencil is fantastic....
Verified Purchase
This pencil is fantastic. It is a little shorter than standard but not obnoxiously so. It has a good weight and perfect balance. It's really cheap considering the quality. Your hand rests in it comfortably, and the body seems sturdy. I am a little horrified about the tip and how that will hold up however, as it seems like that may be the first to go.

It was one of the best purchases I have made on Jet Pens.

Pros: The body of this...
Verified Purchase
The body of this pen is very nice, it's soft and feels very comfortable in the hand [I have large hands].
The little orange band near the tip can be adjusted [it can point to different kinds of lead types such as b 2b ... etc] if you unscrew the tip, although there weren't any kind of directions to figure this all out.... the clip is also removable if unscrew the top part of the pen bellow the eraser cover. The eraser is decent but it's best only on emergencies, there is not a whole lot of it in there. I bought extras just in case.

I'm no engineer but I did take some trig.... and I have noticed that in certain angles below 45 degrees the tip breaks leads. Some writing surfaces can cause this, even more so. I would imagine if the user is writing gently it might not be an issue. However if you tend to write fast or are heavy handed.... be prepared to be frustrated. Furthermore.... it is strange how a well constructed tip would have such a weak tip, it feels like the designers added it in as an after thought. I wonder sometimes if the lead breaks because the tip bends ever so slightly, who knows...


I liked the body material, and the weight of the pencil... however the tip feels fragile and breaks leads often under certain conditions. Looks aren't everything, it's difficult to recommend this pencil. Collectors would probably like this pencil however for everyday use for school/office work.... the performance of this pencil is inconsistent. I have learned not to depend on it, however I do appreciate it's beautiful design... it's tough rating it, but maybe a 3.5/5.. since Jetpens does not have such rating, I will give it a solid 3 stars.
