DescriptionSpecificationsFrequently Asked Questions
Spend a few minutes with the Rotring 600 and you'll understand why it has been so frequently requested at JetPens. This highly sought after product has a weight and feel that represents what a professional drafting pencil should be to many people. It has an all metal brass body, traditional knurled grip, fixed 4 mm sleeve, lead grade indicator (with knurled metal casing) and clip. It has a very technical look and will appeal to engineers for its solid construction and lead advancement mechanism. The guide pipe gives an excellent view of the lead. The pencil has an 8 mm diameter grip and 9 mm hexagonal body shape. The subtle change in body shape links this modern drafting pencil with its wooden pencil ancestors. The top cap holds an eraser and also features the iconic Rotring red circle.

The Rotring 0.35 mm is equivalent to the standard 0.3 mm we are accustomed to and accepts 0.3 mm lead. The 0.35 is a German distinction that recognizes that the 0.3 mm pencil lead diameter is actually closer to 0.35 mm.

I meant to say that The platinum pro-use II looks much thicker than my rotring's grip, which I why I just ordered one. But still I really enjoy the look and feel of the silver .35 rotring.

The 600 is an excellent pencil, good balance, nice weight because it's made entirely of metal, unlike the the plastic barreled 500 which is constructed entirely different than the 600, which is why it cost less. The only think that the 2 have in common is how they look and the fact that they both have a knurled metal grip. And that is why I give the black 600 (and the 500 for that matter) only 5 stars. While Like the look of the all black 600 I do not like the black grip. The knurling is very good but the black colorshows every light colored dust and debris including skin from your fingers. Plus constant use and cleaning wears the tips of the knurling causing the grip to null even more. Over time the grip dulls and turns grey. The silver 600 also collects the same stuff it can be easily cleaned and restored to its original glory. So for this reason I give the black 600 only 4 stars

A lovely hefty pencil. My go-to when making small sketches to ink later. The lead is nice and thin but not so much that it breaks easily.

the rotring 600 is one of the best pencils I've ever had. it has a look and feel unlike any other drafting pencil I've tried. sure it's a bit on the pricey side, but you're paying for the professional quality. the only thing that i don't like is the hole at the top of the knock button that shows off the eraser. it's not a big problem for me, but i figured you should know.

Absolutely in love. I bought this to do organic chemistry problem sets and other problems, and I LOVE it. Took the advice and got the 2B lead, I couldn't be happier. Well worth the outlay.
